hi i want some pigeons but before i get some i need to everything about then thanks!
Seconded!Ok! So you will need to have a loft, maybe 2, one could be used for breeding, and one for flying.(depending on breed) or you could split the loft in two. You need to get 15% protein feed. Water dish needs to be one inch deep so they can suck it up. You need to have nest boxes, 1 ft. by two feet long MINIMUM. You will need to have perches for lots of extra pigeons than you plan on having. Breeding them will add complications if you dont have a way to seperate flyers so this is where 2 lofts come in handy. A good rule of thumb is to have 3 or 4 sp. feet per bird with adequate nestboxes and perches. You will also want to (if flying) do a call evertime you feed, I whistle but you could do whatever you want. Any qeustions? It would help to know if you are going to fly or not.
For floors, If its a wire one it must be able to be removed so you can clean it, if it's a wooden/solid floor then you should use straw or shavings so you can clean it.
