You ever find strange pigeons in your coop?

Went out this morning and grabbed a few birds and head out to the field. One of the birds I grabbed had leg bands that are not mine. One of the bands are red and is the type that you put on at like 3 days old and the other is a blue snap on band no number. I guess its safe to assume its a homer from...

Re: Pigeon Loft

I don't understand why people say this type of loft is only good for 10 birds or so. My loft is similar to this maybe a tad taller is the only difference. I currently keep 22-25 birds in my loft and have not had any problems so far. I want to build a bigger loft but for now it seems to be working.

Re: Ideas for hauling water

One reason you might consider having a collapsable bowl is that you are trying to make your water go as far as you can. My dogs will drink from a squirt bottle too but we sure go through a lot more water than when he drinks out of a bowl.
