    I have been working on it for a couple days, all in all it cost me about $50, I had to buy 8 2x4" boards and a 25' roll of "hardware cloth" wire.

    I still have to paint it and add a couple more roosts and things but they got to get in there finally and they are digging it lol, the feather feet ones started cooing and dancing around and kept shoving everyone off the board lol.

    It looks like it should get the job done.

    Cool but you may want to consider putting a floor of some sort to get them off the dirt

    Oh ok, from what I have been reading they liked to forage around on the ground so I didn't add a floor

    I've seen pigeons do well on dirt and wire, I would probably put a wire floor on it just to keep the pred.s out, but a little dirt won't hurt them.
