This I made a little over a year ago. It is for my roller Pigeons. The siding I had left over from when I had the house resided. It is a double kit box it will hold 20 pigeons on each side. There is a door on the end to feed the birds and the box on the outside is were the water is. The door on the front you open up to let the pigeons out so that they can fly. The little door with the wide perch is where they go to get back in. They fly for around 20 mins. and then they go back in to eat. The other picture is the inside showing the v-perchs that the pigeons sit on.

I couldn’t understand why someone would be interested in raising pigeons except maybe homing pigeons. I checked this out on youtube though and it was interesting.

Hey Henry
That looks like a good build well thought out and a nice finished project.

The kitbox is on the back side of the garage. HokieMojo I do have some white homers also that I do fly. The rollers are cool when you see them roll in person that video is slowed down. I had one last year that would roll 40 feet and do it in like 4 sec. That one got put in my breeding loft. They can spin so fast that they just look like a ball of feathers. Most of the materials that I used where scrap pieces that I had laying around I only had to buy the wire and the treated 2X4’s

Very interesting and nice job blending in with the house. The only thing I would do is get some paint that matches the house as close as you can and paint the exposed feet and header board. This would make the whole project blend in and give it a finished look. I like the idea of raising them that is cool.
Very nice!
