To give some an idea of flights that can be built. I realize many don't have the room for large flights.

This is one of our small flights, it was donated, I still have to put a safety entrance on the front. The handles on the side make it very easy for two people to move are the yard.

This flight doesn't take up alot of room and it could be made larger too.

Ooppps Embarassed It's 50" wide X 52" deep. Part of the top has a roof leaving the rest wired so for the sun to come through.

I want to add an open sided wooden box to one of the inside corners to give the occupant a hide so if they get nervous.

How many birds did you have in there?

It started with 4. By the time we moved them to the garage, there were 40. :eek:

All the birds weren't in there all the time except at night. That was back in the day when they would follow me when I left the house and wait for me outside of my destination. Laughing

That'S what I did with my PMV pigeons every time the sun was shining even in colder temperatures. Even if they started to behave a bit nervous and had some minor seizures because of the stress - after a while they calmed down and could enjoy the fresh air, sunshine and some contact with the balcony pijjies.

I simply took their boxes, instead of the cover I used some crotcheted table cloths and fastened this with strong clamps to the box: this way they had some shade but also some direct sunshine.

Sometimes the pijjies from the balcony became sneeky and jumped on top of the box as f.e. Pete who has a conversation with his sick daughter Winnie:

Louise, I do not want to hijack your thread but I thought I add a couple of more photos from earlier in the year when I took each opportunity to bring the sick birds outside into the sun but first a few photos from Winnie and how these birds are longing for sunshine. After feeding I always led her to that halogen lamp at my working table with a pile of newspaper where she enjoyed deeply the warmth!!!! and always started to preen. When she had enough light and warmth she just stepped down. This was the indicator for me how desperate these birds need sunshine:







And here are some more photos from the balcony and Willy and Pete interacting with our litle patients:















No matter whether a cage or box is small - the birds need the sunshine!

Love all your pictures Petra.

This so reminds me of my Birdy, I love it/them who now is with Robin (EgypSwiftlady). I use to put Birdy outside every day. He would call for his mate and she would come stay with him and sit on his cage all day. It still breaks my heart that I could not reunite them, Very sad but he has a wonderful forever home Pigeon angel and has a new mate and is very happy. Circle of Love

They were probably waiting for you to plant some flowers in the 'window box'. flower

I'm glad they've figured it not. Looks like they are definitely taking advantage it. Smile
