Birds are about 8 and 10 months old and currently living in a empty pigeon aviary. They are going out daily and soon will roam free. I am planning to build them a cage. I have long horse shades stretching my wall. My plans are 20'l x 6'd x2, 2.5' tall. Should I make it taller? The back sides and roof will be solid (I may just use the horse shade as the roof and skip the wood. The front will 1/2" welded wire. The floor will also be wire but I need to find something stronger. What size is good? I am thinking 1x1" wire? I will have a small door on the right with some sort of trap. Maybe the bob style traps Pigeon fanciers use that can open both directions. I would also need to keep in one direction for a time to settle them in. Short strip of plywood will be on the right side by the door for the water and feed away. But like I said once settled in there they will be roaming free so I just wanted something big enough for them to feel nice at night. Currently have 2 cocks and hen India blue, plan on adding another hen sometime in the near future. Is 6' too deep? They way I am planing it would mean I could only access the far right side via a latter for water and feed. Birds back in there would be there. I could build the whole front section on a 180 degree hinge so I could get in the whole area. I would still build a door within that door on the right for feed and such. This will not have any legs and be hanging from the horse shade frame. Bottom should be about 7-8' high So what do you think?
