At what age do you move babies to floor and if loft isnt seperated how to set up something for them in my loft.
I have small L shaped loft with aviary and only 3 pair and 2 squabs, so far. My loft isnt seperated. Just getting started with pigeons. My squabs are 10 days old so trying to prepare. I read they need to be placed on floor for exercise at 15 days old. Is this correct? Any suggestions on how and where in loft to put them? Do I completely keep them from adult birds? Picture of loft below. Thanks for any ideas!!

Hello,

Nice looking loft,
no, your babies should not be placed on the loft floor at 15 days. Your nest boxes appear to be a good size.
I would not remove the babies from the nest box until they are 3 weeks old, even if there rearing up the next clutch of eggs. Don't rush them give them time. If you plan on training for the upcoming young bird race season, I would get them up on your landing board at about 4 weeks to educate them to their surroundings, and trap training.

Any others question let me know,

Good Luck
