Does anybody have design plans (or pics) for a pigeon coop.. something that will hold 6-12 birds. Any info would be great.
Thanks

If you have the room and $$, those redrose lofts look great. I decided to start small and am going with one like this:

Lion Country Supply also sells plans for a coop that looks pretty simple, but functional.

Here is a picture of a nice, small coop. The plans are well detailed and include step by step instructions. A materials list is included too. I've had clients build this one off the plans and it went together real well.

Click on the link then scroll down. The coop plans are the last thing on the page.

Can't believe nobody has linked back to the GDF Hall of Fame pigeon post.
It's titled "Starting with Pigeons" - you can find it HERE
It may not have the exact setup you're looking for, but some great information and coop ideas.

I used these plans from Matt. If you go this route PM me and I will give you some tips to make life much easier when building it. I can send you some pictures of the finished product as well.

I like your coop but one thing I would change is the roof should overhang alot more on the edges. If it rains in the coop and it is wet your birds will get sick (respitory infection). Nice coop.

Thanks. I just followed the directions but see what you are saying and will make that change. Always have some spare plywood around. There are quite a few things I would do differently if I built it again which I will probably build another one eventually
