What can you use for pigeon nesting?
A suitable site can be in a corner on the ground floor of an abandoned building. A pigeon nest is constructed of materials such as small twigs, straw or grass stems, roots, pine needles, and leaves, with a small hollow in the center where two eggs are usually laid.
What size should a pigeon nest box be?
Because pigeons are more rested and relaxed and alert if they are not constantly fighting other pigeons in the loft for a small amount of personal space that they can claim for themselves. As a rule, nest boxes should be a minimum of about 24 inches by 30 inches in size.
Do pigeons like nesting boxes?
The right nesting box can result in calmer pigeons, easier breeding and in the case of homing pigeons, a faster return. A nesting box is relatively easy to construct and will improve the safety and behavior of your bird.
