Nesting Box

Here's how it looks like. The Box that you can see is not in the regular position, I keep it along side the Right Partition so that the babies/eggs are in the back corner and in the front there is a wooden bar which will not allow things to fall. Ofcource now the babies are 21 days old and can walk around, so whenever I keep the door open I keep an eye on them -

Hi Sushil,

What I meant by "shelves" was a poor choice of words . What I was trying to describe was a board going across from one side to the other and maybe 8 to 12 inches wide at the back of the loft and halfway between top and bottom . I cant tell if you have an upper and lower level with screen between top and bottom or not . If you do I suppose that would take the place of that board . Otherwise you might try adding it for them to sit on . My birds like to sit like that while resting in the loft . Sometimes I put the nest boxes on it , sometimes not as I move things alot . Mine is similar to yours but higher .

I have two traps in mine and today I found out a new cockbird in one section figured out how to get back out through the bob trap 2 days in a row now ..... I need to do some re engineering. :D he's a smart little bugger .

Ok I get your point. I'll try to make some sort of arrangement for them to sit on.

Yes Within two months I have observed that these are one of the very intelligent birds. They are masters in finding workarounds and are very sensitive.

Thanks
Sushil

Sometimes if my pigeons werent interested in incubating...they ate the eggs themselves.

People that keep Budgie's give them a boiled egg once in a while for protein and stuff, I'm gonna try that with pigeons ;)
