    We are having an outdoor shed built for our three pigeons and scrub jay but want to heat it as it is in the 30s here right now at night and they are used to 65 to 70 degrees inside. Any suggestions? These are three tame domestic pet pigeons and of course one native bird. The shed will be plywood...

    Hi, I purchased 4 fowl stuff nesting boxes. They are still in the box. I see some benefits and some issues. They are essentially a plastic bucket with a perch and front added to them. They are designed for chickens but many think they are a bit small for chickens, at least large chickens. I...

    Hi, I am new to racing pigeons and very new to this forum. I recieved a some birds from a guy getting out of racing and I placed them in nest boxes. The boxes are 12"high, 12"deep and 24"long. I am trying to match up the pairs that he told me to breed together. The pairs are contained in the...

    A few of my YBs from last year are pairing up. However, I still have some that are singles and I'm trying to figure out for certain what I have for cocks and hens. I have some birds that I believe are hens and they appear to be claiming nest boxes. Will hens sometimes do this like the cocks...

    I'm trying to find cheap nest box ideas. We used to use milk crates when I was a kid and were going to again, but I cannot find any that are big enough. The only ones around here are 10 1/2" deep. Our coop is a re-purposed horse barn and is around 24' x 24' so there is PLENTY of space. I love...

    I had a little bit of time off work today so I took the opportunity to build some nest boxes into my loft. The birds went out flying while I worked, and were eager to come in by the time I had finished. As soon as I had cleaned up my mess and shut the door everyone came in and trapped. I went...

    I have finally finished adding my nest boxes to my loft, so thought you might be interested in seeing my loft. It started out as a commercial steel and mesh hexagonal shaped aviary (52inchesx7ft 2 inches), enclosed on 3 sides of the hexagon. My husband built 6 shelf units to fit the 3 enclosed...

    As some might know I had a problem with a couple of eggstealing cocks but the problem bird I have now makes those two look sedate. This bird is a MENTAL CASE!! He started abusing and pecking his first mate LONG before breeding season started, he was running her before there were even nest...

    Hubby is building one of our members some nest boxes. Once done, we'll just take them and hang em' on the wall. Pretty neat looking. He's making the doors so that they swivel on dowel rods........I'm taking pictures as we go along. It's 4 X 8 with 9 boxes. This one is just the basic frame and...

    I have been very busy the last two weeks building a new aviary. It is ten feet long, six feet tall, and four feet wide, all wire with a sturdy pvc pipe frame and plenty of perches. I plan to put nest boxes on the back wall. Hopefully I can get most of them to stop sleeping on the floor, the...

    I have a 8x6 breeding section, alls I think I need/want are 6 nest boxes,each big enough for the 2 nests. When not breeding and all the cock birds are in there, will the extra cock birds be ok with just a perch? Or do they need box too?:)
