Pigeon Coop - Bob Traps?

Need to remove what they're standing on to break out, as per my post in this thread https://uplandjournal.ipbhost.com/topic/82508-pigeon-bobs-the-best-design/?tab=comments#comment-1486400


Didn't see that post before - thanks, very timely.  Just like you, they are standing on about half of a 2x4...time to fire up the Sawzall.

Also why bobs don't make the best pigeon trap doors.


This must be the truth.  I cut out the 2x4 underneath the door and a 45 degree angle off either side to prevent them from reaching.  Most of them still just come in for lunch and are gone by roosting time.  Only one bird, likely of poor mental fortitude, seems to be left behind every day.


I haven't seen them do it so I don't quite know how they do it, but I suspect if I wire the bobs together at the bottom with chicken wire they'll be foiled.  If that doesn't work, I'll be looking into a new door.
