    Hi, I thought I would share my first attempt at building a kit box. check out the video and let me know what you think! https://youtu.be/LuBP8xCCh2M also I am wondering if I were to fly the rollers twice a day will it make them better at rolling?

    Hey guys im selling this newly built kit box. It has never been used. New shingles on the roof. I painted it with a thick coat of outdoor paint, the color is red so it will be easy for the birds to spot from the sky. I have put bob traps on it, also the floor drops for easy cleaning. I did not...

    How many birds can be housed suitably in a kit box that is 3 ft. long, 1 ft. 8 inches wide and 2 ft. 5 inches? What are the best perches to use in a kit box? What type of feeders and waterers do you use? Also, I've heard that you can use chicken layer pellets for the breeding rollers. Has anyone...

    I understand the use of kit boxes for rollers. And the mobility of the box with birds. But is it feasible to use the same type box for young homers during the training and young bird season. If kept close to the main loft it would not be hard to retrain them back to the loft for old bird season...

    I've recently finished building my first kit box. I haven't yet decided whether to go with a bob trap or Sputnik style trap. We have Birmingham Rollers, which have yet to be trap trained. I've heard that some people have had difficulty getting birds to trap using bobs. On the other hand, an...
