    Pigeons are one of the easiest kinds of livestock to raise
    Pigeons raise 2 offpspring at a time
    You will need a nest box for each pair of pigeons you plan to get plus a few extras. Five-gallon plastic pails, cut in half, top to bottom, and fastened to the wall will make fine nest boxes.
    I fed grain from the feed store called Pigeon chow I beleive.
    Feeders made for chickens work or you can cut openings in empty gallon milk jugs.
    Always keep fresh clean water available

    How many pairs are you getting?
