As long as the pigeons are dry, not in a draft and are safe from outside predators, then it doesn't matter what the loft looks like. I PROMISE the birds won't complain!! LOL
They look pretty happy to me. ;)
What size is the wire that you're taking the pictures through?

It's pretty much ventilated ,but the bottom of the loft is not protected,it needs to sit on a slab,or it should be elevated with plywood underneath.You're going to have rats and mice coming from underground.

Scuse my ignorance, but is black/white pigeon a roller? We have a rescue who is similar, and is a roller (well, he was before he became unable to fly). For no good reason I associate that 'color scheme' with rollers :)

You're right. I didn't see the second set of pictures. I have an aviary that's on the ground, but the loft is up off of the ground and has a floor and is closed completely up at night.

Another option, besides wire, would be to place sand on the ground in the flights.
Sand drains well, provides some grit and is hard for mice to dig in because their tunnels collapse.
I use concrete sand , which locally is $6.50 a ton, in my flights.
When the sand becomes soiled I rake it out and replace it.

I can't find any except a landing board. Do you fly your birds? Unless, obviously, if you are flying the English system, then landing board is not needed.
