What should be nests?
Every pigeonholder must take care of her dwelling before setting up a favorite bird. At the same time, it is not enough simply to put a dove, as they say, only the roof would be. Pigeons should feel comfortable in it and what the correct arrangement of the nest plays here.
A properly arranged slot is the first step towards successful breeding. In a halibut, each bird must have its own seat for sitting, as well as during the marriage period and its own separate apartment. To do this, indoors do sit-ups and allocate special places for nests. In this case, their shape and size are chosen from the account of the breed. In small daisies, with a small number of birds, it is convenient to allocate one part to sit down, and in the second to build shelves for houses.
The size of shelves should be approximately as follows: length - 80, width - 40, height - 30 centimeters. You can make separate boxes of this size and install them in a dove in the form of a wall. Mostly poultry farmers choose removable nests designs in the form of boxes. It allows after the end of the marriage period and after the growth of the chicks to free up space in the dove until the next season.
It is important to remember that the nests should be well ventilated, they should have convenient access for cleaning from litter and disinfection. Pigeons love to build houses themselves, so it is important to give them such an opportunity. For this purpose only the basis, for example, the box and separately lies straw, hay and various small branches. Each pigeon from the provided material itself will make a convenient place for nesting.
