I think it will work now, tested it. ;D
My current plan is to just build a cage with wood frame and 1/2" wire but with one of the sides missing (open), and to train them to use the bob trap door I am just going to have somebody hold it against the door and I will ratchet strap it on the loft, and just take it off when I'm done training them for the door.
I finally finished my loft this past weekend by building and affixing the aviary, as well as putting up perches. All I have left is to fix some dowels in the aviary for them to sit on, fix wire all around the legs, and sink an anti-digging strip along edges as well, such that it is much tougher for critters to get to ground below the loft and eat feed scraps, and stain my pigeon perches so they are easier to wipe clean. Just some finishing touches really. It came out nice, and was pretty fun to build actually.
Here are a few pics below. If there is anything any guys of you think I did wrong or should change, let me know!
