    Even thou I keep pigeons for a bit of time I do get a lot of obscurities about how to manage them. I still have a small loft that I built for rescued pigeon and few more and understood that it is too small, uncomfortable and not right in some ways like ventilation. I wish to build another loft...

    I breed indian fantail, here in the UK, big bird is preferred. although I know in the US, you guys have mindian, which is around 6 inch tall. I have a body mark hen, she is tiny, only 6 inch, according to british standard, she is certainly not good quality. However, I really like her colour...

    I keep fantails, my biggest cock bird in the loft somehow paired up with my smallest hen, the hen is mindian while the cock is a massive show bird. I donot know how they paired up, they chose each other, among so many spare birds in the loft. I wonder how can they mate due to their size...

  9. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    The first birds I purchased came from a loft flyer. His birds were large (didn't know this at the time). Recently, I purchased some from a racer and his were significantly smaller, only half the size of my first. All birds from both breeders were adult birds when purchased. What was odd was, the...

    Hey guys, I recently added a trap door on my coop for my tipplers and IHF. So, I was wondering, is a 6 inch by 6 inch trap door would be big enough for the birds?(the birds CAN EASILY fit through the door) but is it too small? Also, how can I start trap training?(I have kept them for a month...

    Do you know where I could get 6mm snap-on bands? I've been searching in some of the websites that I've seen mentioned here but I haven't found them in sizes smaller than 6mm. It's for an eared dove, kinda like a mourning dove in size.

    I've been wanting to get a new cage for my dove. He's living on a small one right now (in cms: 44x25x20), and he doesn't exactly like it. Can you show me any idea for a cheap indoors cage? I don't want it to be too hard to make either because I'm horrible at this kind of stuff. But if it's...

    Probably some of you have seen my topics. Now, I think I'm going to build them an aviary/cage (while I get to convince my mom to keep the birds or decide to release them) and then buy/build them a cage. But I want them to be comfortable enough so as to spend all day in it. If I release them, I'm...

    Hello All, As a newbie, I'm curious about everything.:p I was wondering, tonight, about size in a racing pigeon. My Lemons seem to be larger than most of the racing pigeons that I have looked at. So much so that I find it a little hard to apply the "pigeon holding grip" that I was shown...

    There is another thread whereupon someone was asking about a flyer named Dr. John Lamberton. I had heard of him and did a google search and came up with his web site. Here is a link to his site. But what I wanted to actually discuss is about halfway down on Lambertons web page, there is a pic...

    I'm going to get a bigger cage built for my canary and dove and here are the two sizes I'm considering (chosen so I can fit the paper I use as flooring, these sizes would fit two sheets): 64"x45" with a height of 35" or 90"x30" with a height of 35" Do I need a greater height than 35"?
