Help select pigeon enclosure!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I am trying to find a reasonably priced dog kennel with cover to house 12 breeding pairs of pigeons. What would you suggest? I was thinking that 5 by 5 and 6 feet high would be too small. Any other ideas?

I was looking at something like this (I would have to predator proof the top) but I didnt know if it was big enough:

Ok well I can't really think of any thing else were u could look and find another used dog kennel but if u want that one I could find a website selling dog kennels and they might sell them at tractor supply

You'd be cheaper building kennel for pigeons, as my med dog got out of all kennels made now a days. I would have to seriously redo any new kennel made for tractor supply or co op that I tried. If predators n pests can get in and pigeons could get out, don't bother with for dog kennels. A neighbor had an old good built one that he got extra chain link on top n bottom, that worked to keep in a pair of American rollers, until press got through.

The wire on the chain link is going to be too large for pigeons. I used a rabbit style hutch before I just build my own coop.
