I decided to try V-perches this time and I was able to knock out 25 of them in just a few hours. The top edge is pretty sharp and I’ll need to round each perch off a little with a sander to make them more comfortable for the birds to use.
I also added some temporary poultry netting over the openings on the front of the loft. There are 3 openings which will become aviaries and traps for the loft. I haven’t yet decided exactly how I will build those.
Home Depot sells some really nice plastic poultry netting which has smaller holes in it. These holes are the perfect size for pigeons. I will likely use some of this netting on some of my interior walls.
For now, there’s a lot of room for flying in this loft. I imagine it will help make these youngsters strong.
There’s still a whole lot of things to be done. I hope to get a bit more done next weekend.
