    I just got news that I'll be moving to the Philly area soon and I wanted to ask advice from those that live in larger cities with birds and colder climates. I've always lived in the south (Texas and Florida) and suburban areas with large backyards and plenty of space. I also have no experience...

    Hello. What's a good way to improve a loft with a dirt floor and shallowly buried hardware cloth? I just don't like the fine dirt and tendency to turn to mud. Thinking of just laying some bricks or concrete blocks on top but the texture is kinda rough which makes me think it will trap poo in...

    Hi... I'm on my second generation of building nesting boxes. I've tried some divided in half, with a front covering one side (as available for purchase). And some that are simple boxes - no fronts, no dividers. Most of my pigeons nest in a coop (with these boxes). The coop is probably 20 x...

    Pressure treated wood. Do you use it? Where can it be used? Does it need to be painted or sealed? I'm I'm Florida so I'm facing insects, rain, humidity etc that would make using regular pine a real pain as we would have to replace it every 2-3 years. Redwood, locust wood etc are expensive. Can...

    I'm having trouble naming my loft. My main idea is The Screaming Pigeon Loft. The basis is from when I was in the military, my unit was the Screaming Eagles. Does anyone have any ideas or thoughts?
