  1. Loft Designs
    I've been watching about tipplers on youtube and I keep seeing some sort of trap cage on top of lofts or kit boxes that the tipplers use to enter their lofts. What do you call this? And is this really needed? Won't tipplers land and trap on a simple landing board and trap door? Sorry for too...

    I thought I'd share this story with folks here and maybe get some feedback on what I could do differently with my loft or flight training. This Wednesday I had 6 young birds ready for their first flight out of the loft so having only fed them in the morning, I opened the aviary and let them...

    When i go into the loft, they go out into the aviary. I put food into the feeder, shake the can and whistle. the birds stay in the aviary. I go outside and close the door, the birds stay in the aviary. So im thinking that i must be overfeeding them correct? So my question is, should I starve...

    Hello everyone, I was making my trap door and I was wondering what design of trap door works better: the bobs, or just or the traditional piece of wood pointed inwards? I heard the pigeons might hesitate with the bobs, is this true? Thanks

    Any tips how I can trap my birds faster. It takes me 2-3 hours to trap them. I give them half of feed and they still dont want trap in.
