Hi everyone! I finally found my way back to the forum. I've decided to build a Small homing pigeon loft. Now that I work at Home depot I have access to tools/saw's but i'm not that handy with woodwork. I can follow great instructions and hammer a nail just great but I was wondering were there any solid plans on a loft that i can fit maybe 4-6 Birds. I saw the red rose one but that's a little large for my needs. I don't wanna race or anything but i still want homing pigeons for the fun of it. Ive seen alot of great pictures and even videos from you guys and the web but i'm not such of a see it build it kinda guy so its difficult to get started. Any ideas or links?

Hi I have a Starter Loft pdf file, which I got from Forum member RogerD.

I can email to you if you want. you can also ask RogerD for the plans.

It is a 'starter loft' design plan for a small loft.

Good Luck :)

Thank you I got it. Kinda large for what I'm going for but I think I got a good idea of what I wanna do. Question tho. What size of loft does I need to hold 6 bird's?

Glad to hear you have got the loft plans rcwms90.

I am sorry, I am not sure of the loft size for 6 birds. I think it will also depend on weather you will fly them or just keep them for breeding. Will you keep space inside loft for their flying?

I hope other forum members can provide input. Good Luck :)

Yea i'm planning to fly them I just wanted to know a good size of a loft that will hold 3 pairs. In the future i'm planning on building a red rose loft. But I don't have the money or equipment for that type of job. I found someone willing to sell me the birds for 15 bucks each so I just wanted to get the ball rolling. But i'm honestly clueless lol I know ill have to get the boards cut at home depot and i need to be sure what sizes should the walls be. This will be my first ever flying loft. I have a breeders coop so im hoping that when the breeding starts happening ill move the older builds to there and have the younger ones trained to fly. Idk I just really wanna jump into it animals have always been a passion of mine and other then the dog this will be my first outdoors animal and i wanna do it right.

Basic Idea looks good rcwms90.

I suggest you go through the Loft designs section of the Forum, might be helpful.

I'm sure there must be a post about the appropriate size required per bird/pair.

Good Luck.
