    I'll tell you what, why don't you just make it like a kit box then, only if you can fly them daily/almost daily? Just all roosts, feed and water dish. Open up, fly them, pen them up. Or, give each bird about 2, 3, 4 sq. feet of space, depends on personal preference/size of breed. For fliers, just a roost per bird. It aint too critical.
    Someone may have more precise info, probably unnecessary, though.

    You want to have ideally two perches per pigeon, and 40" x 40" x 40" would be easiest set up for flock/kit with six to twelve birds, or for a pair with two nests to raise good healthy clean young to fly. many "breeders" keep totally confined pairs and young that quickly get unhealthy and unclean in 24" x 24" x 24". that said birds flown for while once or more a day would be happy, perform, and breed, in dresser drawers (I've seen it with neighbors), as rollers/tumblers seem to be easiest to keep pigeons. Think are you going to want to have wire or solid floor under and how much your going to have to clean up a smaller area, or let them get messy and possibly sick and not fly well. i don't need to force or gimmick my birds to roll, and they are alert and strong enough to evade and mostly not be seen as easy prey to begin with (so far, and excluding a falconer's peragrine before).
