can you folks post good links or personal pictures of coop designs and give a good description of the process of establishing a homing pigeon coop system that will provide birds for training purposes for a year or more.

For me I used the plans from the following link http://www.redroselofts.com/starter_loft.htm. The loft is 4 x 8 x 8 and it will hold up to 17 birds comfortably.

For me my current batch of birds I got as culls never been flown and I've basically locked them up for the past 6 weeks giving them access to the aviary in the front this allowed them to get their bearings. I then open the loft door and let them explore.

Right now their at the 5 mile radius, eventually will get them out to 50 miles as my training area is 35 miles out. Including some pics.

Hope this gives you a starting point.

I see ACE's post i did not know you could get them to come back from that far. Do you just take them down the road let them out and let htem come back....just working your way out to farther distances?
