The price of pigeons depends on the variety. I have some roller pigeons that I sell for about $10 each. Some pigeons that are fancy breeds will sell for $50+ each. Getting along together usually isn't a problem as long as they have enough space to get away from each other. If one pigeon couple is the dominant couple, just make sure the other pairs have room to get away from them. Pigeons can eat a lot of things. You can find specific pigeon feeds or use the gamebird or chicken feed at your local feed store. They're not too picky.

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask. I am by no means an expert, so people are free to disagree with me.

I don't have pictures of my setup. Sorry! But, you'll be surprised how many pigeons will fit into a space like that. Especially if they have outside access. Just make sure, when you get yours home, keep them in the coop with no access outside for several weeks until they learn that this is their new home. Some varieties of pigeons will actually fly back to their former home if you don't.

You could keep severeal birds in a loft that size. I'd suggest starting out with only about 3 or 4 pair though. They can multiply pretty quick.

I have a few homing pigeons, and tdhenson86 is right, they will fly back to there original home if you get older birds. I have a cock bird from Washington state that if I ever were to turn loose, he'd be gone!
