    Lately I have a few Pigeon Pairs refusing to use the nest bowl. I have come up with a plan to form a ring with a diameter of about 10 inches. The ring will be made from a piece of rubber hose with a wooden dowel to hold both ends together.

    Hoping it does the trick.

    My pigeons do the same they go in the hutch and lay rite on the floor of the nest box. Just make sure you put a barrier up at the front of the box so once they start to stretching there legs they don't fall out get a 1x1feryn strip and put that up in the front of box that should keep them safe!
    Good luck!

    Yes it works well it lays flat when they go in and out and it keeps the eggs centered. I am quite happy with the results. Now if they only would start using the nest bowls like the majority of my pairs.
