Hmmmm... dunno. I've got nest boxes and nest bowls for that and I'm all about a "way clean" loft so I'm not sure that any kind of bedding on the floor is really a must... not saying that it is "bad"... just that there are more then one way of doing things.Bird_girl(Ronni said:Me either! You sould try it! Its probably a good idea! It will give your pigeons someplace to lay to!

Ground corn cob. That sounds safe and effective. Where does one get such a thing and how much does it cost?When I did use something on the floor I use ground corn cob, any more though I just scrape and use the ground cob for the Individual breeding boxes. Zigs right about the straw.
I use pine needles or Timothy hay in my nest bowls. I only use the small Timothy hay bales from the pet store meant for guinea pigs. It seems like it's been doing ok.I would stay away from using straw or hay as nesting material unless you know it is sanitary. It can have harmful bacteria that can kill babies. Tobacco stems or pine needles are best.
