Yes, welcome! Your birds look beautiful and your setup is amazing! I, too, am new to pigeon-raising and still need to work on my own setup, so I am very impressed with what you have built. The breeding pens look excellent! Do you have some sort of trap for when you fly them?

Hello and Welcome to pigeon Talk,

I really like your loft, one question.....do you have an aviary for the pigeons on the other side of the loft???

Thanks everyone for the nice compliments. I do not have an aviary attached because these are my breeding stock. When I have babies I am going to fly them once a day. Also, If you look at the door you will see the landing board and one way doors. The entire enclosure is made of redwood and cost around $2500 to make.

Hi Neighbor

Hi GEORGE, Welcome to the group,I live in OCEANSIDE and look forward to meeting you. I raise ITALIAN OWLS, AMERICAN SHOW RACERS,SADDLE HOMERS, and RACING HOMERS. I belong to the METRO PIGEON CLUB in SAN DIEGO this is an all breeds club and we meet the first Saturday of every month our next meeting is 4 APRIL 12noon to 4pm.I do not raise Frillbacks but maybe someone in the clubs does. Your loft looks good I assume that the ducks are housed along side the pigeons and not with them. I forgot I also am a member of the AMERICAN SHOW RACER CLUB in Riverside and we meet the second Saturday of the month thats this weekend. GEORGE;)

Thanks everyone. I am definitely going to attend the San Diego Metro club meeting. Thank for the invite. I am excited.

and yes...the ducks are a completely seperate entity from the pigeons. they only share a common wall. And the pigeon coop is on a concrete slab!

I used to work in Lake forest. That's awesome. My wife rescues rabbits. Thanks for the compliments.
Small world, indeed! Any chance your wife would like about 10 more rabbits? I seem to end up with them too from my rounds at the local parks and ponds where I go to look after the ducks. It's so very sad that so many bunnies get dumped like they do.
