Hi all, Just come across this website and wondered if any of you kind people out there would help me out. Myself and hubby acquired a Dovecott a few months ago , and inevitably he wanted some doves/white fantail pidgeons ! So we managed to get 6 pair, we kept them enclosed in the dovecott for the required amount of time, and on release all went well they came back for food straight away, The trouble we are having is that since removing the add on to keep them in, they have taken to sleeping on my upstairs bathroom windowsill, They only ever go back to the dovecott for food and will not sleep there. The mess they make on the windowsill and on the floor below as you can imagine is not good !! it has to be hosed down and scraped practically every day, we thought about stopping them going on the windowsill but scared that they might take to our neighbours windowsill instead and am sure they would not be amused. The question is how can we get them to go to the dovecott where it is all dry and snug, instead they sit huddled on the windowsill in the rain and wind...... My husband loves them dearly but i must say the mess is winding me up !!!! any advice would be most appreciated.
