Kevin,

If you read the city ordinance carefully, "no person shall keep any animal, fowl or bird, wild or domestic, other than cats, dogs, canaries, racing or homing pigeons or birds of the Psittacidae family, within 50 feet of any residence or dwelling house or other building...", you'll notice racing pigeons does not fall into the 50 feet catagory. Build it wherever it's easy to get to and keep it simple.

There are alot of racers around where you're at. The Snowbird Classic (http://www.fvcsnowbird.com/index.php) is basically in your backyard, if you want to see how racing is done.
Thank you windaidedaviary! Whole chunk of stress gone!
I will try and stop by they're place today.

Ok, the kitbox from my understanding is used when training rollers, but they also have a loft. You can take the sunset loft and cut it down to size. It is a 8X4 loft, just make it 4X4 and open the front with hardware cloth. Build two nest boxs up high to save your back and to keep the birds off the top and have at it. Do you plan to race or are they just for your enjoyment?

As for now, just for enjoyment. I want to learn and do everything right before I start to race. I think that's the best thing to do. Unless you have a suggestion? :)

Hi Kevin,

Welcome to pigeon Talk,

I would suggest you read all the information on training young birds in this section and the other "STICKY" threads on the care of birds, if you haven't done so-just to re-familiarize yourself on training and more.

Thanks Trees, I just finished reading the last of the stickys. I think I am ready to start and taking care of a pair but before anything else, I should probably start building my loft.
