    This hutch was made for quail and I haven't used it in a while I wanted to get more doves but I sold the dove hutch is this one big enough the top part is 14 inches front to back 39 and a half inches Long and 16 inches tall. The top is where the nesting boxes are going to be and there is gonna be a latter to the bottom and the bottoms dementions are 39 and a half inches long and 21 and a half inches front to back and 17 inches high is this big enough.[​IMG]

    You mean ring neck doves right, not white pigeons?

    That is plenty big enough for doves.

    I would put a floor on the bottom section and stand it up off the ground on legs or bricks.

    If you divide the top and bottom parts into halves then you can have 4 pairs in there. You can let them out to fly and train them to return to the cage on you call to feed them. That way they get plenty of exercise.

    They are going to breed though, so make sure you have somewhere to house the next generation.

    That sounds cool to do I will do that so I can have 4 pairs instead of 2 pairs.
