Interesting. How many birds will it hold?

i think the plastic is so they don’t crap on each others’ heads – assuming each peg is for an individual bird?

I maid this one into 4 compartments ,One for the cocks , another for the females , and the other tow are the flayers , Yes these are some fancy birds , I fly these birds for competition these birds have a very good stamina they fly for about 11 hours non stop I’m trying to get them to fly to 16 hours , world record is 19 hours and 46 mints they are called English Tipplers and I also have Iranian high flayers . This new coop will hold up to 400 birds But financially is to expensive , I like to keep only 250 birds that is allot of pop to clean . The only thing this time I installed a drawers in the bottom so I only clean them ones every 4 months , Before I used to clean the cages ones a week .

Man you really like the birds why so many? I mean is it not difficult to keep control of 250 birds all at the same time.? looks well designed and thought out I had no idea apart from mike tyson that bird fancying racing was such a big sport in the USA how popular is it?Very nice coup or dove cot as it is sometimes called here.

Really a fine looking coop…..where do the birds nest? I know you said you keep the cocks separated, but surely you raise young ones too.

Oh yes . I raze young ones separately its located behind this coop its only for the pairs , I maid this with plastic bread trays You know the blue ones .They are about 2 ft X2 ft and they have about 2 inch holes in them, so that there draping can pass threw the hols. I normally start to medicate all the birds in Feb and after they get there vitamins for about a week and second week of February I start to pair them together ,I pool young ones Till may . Then I separate all the birds till September and I start the same presage over again . So I only breed twice a year I get about 60 new young ones for the new season , But by January most of these pigeons that I breed the hawks gets them or the falcon , And some they fly to high for a long hours and when it gets cloudy I start to loos them . It is an addictive sport The goal is to have the best high flayers, and long hours flying in the sky . So you should know what female to breed with what cock , If you breed a hot blooded cock with a hot blooded female , You will get a crazy bird that will not land , And most likely you will loose him . You know I can talk about pigeons all day long ,But better ended rite her , Because I’m gating sleepy . I will try to get some photos of my breeding boxes some time soon .
