    I've seen several photos of pigeons using plastic pet food bowls as nest sites. Does anyone know what sizes these are? Thanks for any help

    Large plastic dog food bowls work great.Just put pine needles in it and let the pigeons do the rest.

    Thanks,

    i use metal food bowls designed for dogs, but i'm sure metal gives cancer or something, so I should stop that.

    same place I buy such things as bamboo poles, cheap seeds and jars!
     
  6. I use bowls from the Dollar Store or you can get professional bowls at Foys or Coastal Pigeon Supply. Pigeons are not picky about their nest.
