I've never had anything but wood......so I would say wood.......LOL
I always was told that if you stagger the nest front openings, there's less chance of the birds getting confused about which box is there's. You can also put numbers or letters on the doors OR you can tack playing cards in the back of the box. The birds DO recognize such things. That's why our nest fronts in the widowhood loft are painted different colors.

Thanks guys/gals. I really like the wood too. I did see the guy on eggbid and I have not buildt the boxes yet so perhaps we can work out a deal, I rather just buy them outright as Im gonna need them. good tip on the cards and numbers.:)

In my old loft, I just left little shingles and a wood burner and the pigeons would customize their own little door hanger.
Of course when my rollers used their leaf blower on Sunday mornings the fantails would have a fit.:)
