Mine is 8ft long with 15 perches in each side but the competition flyers keep 20 odd birds in each kit box. My mate made it for me.

Nice gnipper, you had any sport with them?

The blue doo brought a white dove back today but I've not got a hood just trapping them in to the aviary.

As said mate they use there powers of seduction lol a male will flirt an show off and fetch a hen back and a hen you own will drop and let a strange male tred her, so he then follows.het back to her loft. Even tho your pigeons will have there own mate waiting for them in loft. They are called thief horseman pouters, its all about trying to catch as many.birds as possible off your neighbours using your own birds, many folk.fell.out big time.over it In Scotland lol check out youtube for some vids mate
