I building a breeding loft, and don't think I will fly any for this group of birds can anyone think of a good reason I should build in a trap.
I would suggest include a trap, so that even if by any chance you need one in future, there is no need to disturb the construction. I do not have performers but a trap would have been nice for my fancies if they wanted to come back to loft at will, currently I open the main door for them. And who knows, may be one day a couple of flyers join your group - fly ins, adoption, rescuers or may be a new interestI building a breeding loft, and don't think I will fly any for this group of birds can anyone think of a good reason I should build in a trap.
I would include a trap 'just in case you ever need it'.
I don't free fly my birds, but one of them got out one morning when I went in to feed She had never been outside the loft before!
She sat on the roof for a few minutes, then flew up and circled around a couple times, then took off. She came back that evening and tried to get into the loft, hanging on the aviary wire, but I couldn't catch her.
I had to rig up a cage and hang it on the side of the aviary and hope she went into it. After 2 days, she finally went into the cage and I snuck up and shut the door!........If I had a trap 'just in case', she would have gone right back into the loft because she kept coming back looking for a way to get in
