    How's it going people. I'm pretty new at this, and really need help at breeding pigeons. I really don't know where to start, so if you guys can help me out i'd appreciate it :). Last week my dad bought 4 pigeons and told us that he used to breed them when he was a child. He's 40 now and work...

    First Backyard Loft - Updated Pictures UPDATE: Took some of the suggestions ya'll threw my way and made a few changes... 1. Got the water off the floor and on a shelf along the wall (great suggestion and the birds adapted to it just fine) 2. Installed two vents near the floor, one on each...

Even though there are so many aviaries, i have a hard time deciding how to build it Suspended would be preferable; but how? with a roof , without a roof, in a slope? The...

    hello, i've recently run into problems with paranoid roommates who don't feel it's safe to keep my homing pigeon inside the house. we have built him a loft inside with lots of space, regularly change his water and food, and do a good clean out every few days. i let him out for a walkabout at...

    I'm researching building a loft and I'm thinking about the Redrose style as a first loft and my question is about using 2x4's. I'm in New England and I'm questioning is I should use 2x4's so that I can insulate the loft for the temperature control. --Rick McKinney Outside of Boston

    Is there any problem in using pre-made wooden lattice work to separate sections of a racing loft.:confused:

    Well, due to the kindness of PT members and my club Prez, I feel the need to expand before I have even technically finished my original loft. Don't need the room as much as I need a separate aviary for my breeders and prisoners. So, basic plan is larger, separate aviary popping out of the...

    I'm looking to build a loft. I'm new to pigeon ownership and this'll be my first. As it stands, I think I'll go with something based on this http://www.redroselofts.com/starter_loft.htm as it fits well in the space I have available. I've only got two birds right now, but would like to expand...

    We've been on somewhat of a hiatus for the last couple months because one of our canine kids (Hailey) has been very sick and we had to make the final visit to the vets office last Monday. The last couple days have been really hard. Hailey is on the left. BUT... We starting expanding our loft...

    When I first built my pigeon loft three years ago, it was built as a playhouse for my kids. It is 8' by 10' with a 3' "front porch". As my kids grew older, they rarely used the playhouse, so when I needed a loft it was the logical conversion. I divided it into four sections, with a corridor down...

    Here is my dilemma. I have recently acquired fourteen white homer squeakers. I would like to start trap training them as soon as possible, but I have questions about where I should put the trap. They are in the front right section of my loft, with a 3 foot by 3 foot aviary attached to the front...

    Ok, as promised, here are the photos of the work I got done with the help of my carpenter friend on Sunday. She has bad arthritis, and it was raining, so she was moving slow, and we didn't get as much done as we hoped. However, she's coming over again tomorrow, and is going to keep on tutoring...

    Ok- after about a month of scavenging around for free and cheap materials, I have begun construction of my very first pigeon loft. I am on a bit of a deadline, since I have YB's that will be arriving in May, so this build will need to go fast. But, without the pressure, I would drag it out...

    Well, here i go again. lol. My Dad wanted a small loft in his back yard to start flying homers. We built this little 4x8 for under $300.00 and it took us a weekend to do. I have some birds on eggs to fill his loft in 3 or 4 weeks. I really enjoyed this build because it was a father and son build...

    Attached are pictures of where we started, where we are and where we are going in the pigeon keeping hobby. This picture is the first coop I built. I had no idea what I was doing, and basically, built a rabbit hutch with nesting boxes on the back. I already added box perches, and covered the...

    I've seen several video's showing loft interiors that are divided into, seemingly, identical rooms. One man stated that traditional Belgium loft design had five compartments. Yet, none of these men offered a reason for the divisions. Can anyone help here? I'm planing a loft with a floor plan...
