    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?

    So this is what I'm getting myself into. Free from Craigslist, picking up tonight, will get a coat of paint. This should hold a half dozen birds. I like this option because my entrance cost is low, it's portable in case I move again next year, but now I can finally get some birds.

    After high winds in January, my wife found a squab on the ground in a park where we usually go to for walks. (with zero experience, guess it was about a week old) Thought it was a baby dove but it turned out to be a common blue-gray pigeon that are usually found in parks. The pigeon is about...

    Everything has been going great with my birds with the exception of having one of my German Owl youngsters taken by a hawk. It was the first time a hawk ever took one of my birds right in front of my face. I tried to save the GO as the hawk chased it around the yard ( which is about 1 and a half...

    Hi all! I have just completed the new loft for my 8 Delbar whites with the many great ideas I have been reading about on this fantastic site. It measures 4' x 3' x 5.5' tall. It has a 1/2"x 1" wire bottom with a pull-out tray for cleaning. Inside are 12 box perches along with a couple...

    This may give some inspiration to other folks who don't have much room in an urban setting. The right side was a $25 Craigslist find and could be used on its own, as I did formerly. http://youtu.be/d4_fI5yFA-8 Previously the lofts were separated and configured: http://youtu.be/f4VJYV7umGw...

    Has anyone built this loft? If so, any suggestions on how you liked it? Tips? I am thinking of building it for my two rescue pigeons. I noticed that it has a trap door. How do you keep predators from using the same door to gain access to your birds?

    Opinion and experience from you folks here. We bought a pair of pigoens in Jan 2010. Now these are our only pigeons and were kept in a hutch style loft (and let out under supervison on occasion) As Spring progressed they built a nest, courted, etc. but the hen (an 08) did not lay eggs. They...
