    On a whim I bought some pigeons.(couldnt beat a $1 each,lol)
    I used to have a huge loft, but Ive moved and no longer have it, so currently they are being housed in a wire cage, but now thats it getting closer to winter, Im wondering what I should do for them.
    I was thinking about closeing the sides in on a long and tallish wire rabbit cage I have (about 6 feet long and 4 feet tall) and using that. My only thing is, the door lifts up and all of it opens at once. My husband is great at fixing things, but I need an idea how how to have the door(s)

    My next thing is, I dont have a bob trap or anything like that, but I would still like to let them fly. Any suggestions? Will all breeds return home? (as long as they dont get attacked,etc like that)

    Any pics? Husbandry can be very specific breed to breed.
