I am just starting to look into having either pigeons or doves and the only way we would have enough space is if we make a "run/fly" area under our rabbit cages. What I am wondering is if there is any reason not to? Will the birds enjoy this the way chickens do or will they just ignore the dropped hay and rabbit poo? How much space do pigeons need per pair? Can I use a rabbit hutch to house them in? It is 2' by 3' long and 24" tall, it has a wire bottom which is what I'm not sure about. I plan on making a pop door and a run under this cage and the area around it that would be about 5' by 6'. I can only make the fly area 3' tall so the neighbors will not see them over the fence. I am looking at a trio of pigeons and the lady selling them said that both females are on eggs now. I was thinking that they mate in pairs so is one of them not fertile or is he hiding something? lol If I do decide to get them when would be safe to move them? I would hate for them to loose the babies. Thanks for any help anyone can offer!
