Indoor Pigeon Cage is a project I created with the intention of providing a means for pigeons to live in an indoor environment.
Pigeons are all too often seen as a nuisance and problem—they’re dirty, they’re loud, and they shit everywhere. But who says we can’t overcome these problems? Pigeons deserve to live too!
I believe that it’s our responsibility as caring people to create a more humane environment for these creatures that we’ve so unapologetically chased out of town.
What Is An Indoor Pigeons Cage?
My Indoor Pigeon Cage is a device meant to house pigeons in an indoor environment without worrying about the problems they usually face in an outdoor environment.
These problems include predators, the elements, and food. The pigeon cage I designed works by providing the pigeons with a safe environment that encourages breeding and reduces stress, resulting in healthier birds.
Why Uses The Indoor Pigeon Cage?
The pigeon cage I designed is meant to be used in various environments, from urban cityscapes to suburban backyards. As pigeons have proven to thrive in these environments,
I decided that the natural choice for my design would be to make it portable. The procedure consists of two main parts: a base and a shell.
The Base is the ground-level portion of the cage that supports the shell and has a drainage system that prevents water from accumulating in the bottom of the shell to avoid mold and mildew.
How Did This Pigeon Cage?
Here Are The Best 11 Methods Of Making This Pigeon Cage.
First, cut out 4 identical pieces of cardboard. They should be the same length and width as the bottom of your intended cage.
2. Bend It Into A Cylinder
Next, fold each piece in half and make a crease with a pair of scissors. Then bend it back into shape to make a cylinder, but the ends touch each other this time.
3. Draw A Circle
Next, use a compass or pen to draw a circle onto the end of each cylinder. Then cut out your circle.
4. Bend Each Piece Into Place
Then, run some glue along the edges of one piece and bend it in half, inserting the other pieces into it. Repeat this with all four pieces to form your Base.
5. Make Your Legs
Cut 20 long thin strips of cardboard and glue them into pairs at right angles to each other to form triangles.
6. Make Your Front And Back Ends
Cut out 4 identical cylinders that are slightly smaller than the ribs on your Base.
7. Connect The Front And Back End To The Base
Attach one of your triangles from Step 6 to the front end of your Base, and attach a second piece in a similar manner at the back end of your Base.
This will make an indented ridge along your front and back ends where you can run water down along the length of this ridge into your Base.
8. Make a Top
Create a cylinder that is slightly bigger than the top of your Base. Use this to cover your Base.
9. Add Legs
Cut 16 legs out of cardboard and tape them to your cage, evenly spaced apart. Make sure they are longer than the ridge on your front and back end so that they will not get caught in it when the cage is moved or rotated.
Now you’re done! Add treats and a few birdies, and make your very own indoor pigeon cage!
This Indoor pigeons cage can be made for many kinds of birds. Go ahead and try this project with finches, canaries, or even doves—they all need a safe home too!
