    Hey guys, I am in the proccess of trap training my tipplers, but I have one quick question. If I place my tipplers on the landing board with food in the loft, they immediately pop in without any hesitation, but when I put them on the ground and put food in the loft they just start pacing back...

    I can't recall the exact name, but I'll try to describe it as simple as I can. It is the trap system which utilizes the metal bars, placed vertically that swing freely and allow for birds to get in, but not out. Are the bars suppose to give off a unpassable barrier to deter birds of prey and...

    A little background.... I built an 8 x 16 loft last year, and started a white bird release business. Things are going fairly well, I've at least been able to pay for their feed, which isn't bad at this point. But now I want to start racing! Several of my friends in the local racing club...

    I started this thread to explore a recurrent problem. Cats are known to be an active danger to a loft of pigeons. Several people contacted me to ask about the "cat proofness" of the original drawing i made of raftree3's sketches for a Sputnic trap. I did some searching and found a great video...

    I've recently finished building my first kit box. I haven't yet decided whether to go with a bob trap or Sputnik style trap. We have Birmingham Rollers, which have yet to be trap trained. I've heard that some people have had difficulty getting birds to trap using bobs. On the other hand, an...

    I have heard a lot of people talk about trapping the birds, teaching the birds to trap and was wondering what everyone recommends as far as trap doors, does everyone prefer the wire bobs that they lift up and come in and close behind them or are there better options? If you have other options I...

    What do I do about that? They just stand around an look look look, but never go through the trap. I shake the feeder can, blow the whistle. I've even put a few grains on the trap ledge (they eat it) but they won't go through. If I raise the bobs, they are leary but after a LONG think...they...

    Hello, We finally had our first hawk fatality :( We've been having hawk scares for a while, but no real problems until yesterday. For a while the birds used to scatter like mad at the first sight of a hawk, but it turns out they can get away in the air just fine. After a while they stopped...
