Hello fellow Pigeon-Talk members. I am new to this site and am anxious to receive advice. Currently I am rushed to house a found "white" pigeon with only a yellow band on one leg. He seems healthy and unharmed. He eats and drinks fine. I temporarily have him in my rabbit's play pen. It is 2'X4' wooden pen with a mesh wire. We made a wooden box for "Birdy" to go in, but he seems to prefer to sit on top of the box. He doesn't seem to use any of the space except when he feels like eating or drinking. I am fortunate in that my husband is a builder, so I have him almost ready to build my friend a new home/loft. I have searched the internet and have not been able to find Loft designs or even basic information such as how much space a bird needs and what a pigeon likes to do on a daily basis. I live in ct. and the Winters get pretty cold. I am unfamiliar with how to take care of "Birdy" when it comes to his house. Food, water, grit and all of that seem pretty easy to master. What about cleaning up the droppings? Keeping predators out!? Do pigeons like perches? Do they need ground in the coop? etc. Please help! I know lots about animals but this is completley new to me! In the meantime, another pigeon has been found and forwarded to me! Looks like I will be getting another bird and possibly more! I really need Loft ideas and basic information on a day in the life of a pet pigeon! Thanks for your help in advance. I look forward to this new venture and want to do it right.
