Just imagine after building the pigeon loft of champions you find out that you overlooked a vital element to your pigeons racing success. To make matters worse you found out because of this missing element you have lost several key races and if nothing is done your pigeons will continue to lose. You may be thinking to yourself this is an extreme what could be that important. Let me tell you my friend in racing pigeon's one key element off of your loft can be the means to winning or losing.

Okay I think I given you enough reason to at least keep reading to find out what the key element is. The element I am referring to here is the pigeon perch. Now believe me, I did not realize the importance of this element either but believe me it is pivotal for your loft since the comfort of your pigeons depends on it.

Now the exact type of your pigeon perch will be different due to your breed of pigeon. In most cases racing pigeons and fancy pigeons that look like racers will and should have the same kind of perch. The most common measurements for these perches are approximately 10 inches square, with a depth ranging about 5 inches. These kinds of perches are commonly known as "box perches". In more cases than not these perches can be built in units and will fit smoothly into the wall space at the back of your loft section.

Now take note these box pigeon perches are not really made for fancy pigeons with more fluffy feathered legs. The reason being their feathers would easily become dirty from the droppings. For this factor you should make a pigeon perch that will allow your more feathered fancy to stand comfortably, without risking his plumage getting damaged or dirty.

Now since the box perch will not be suitable in this case it is highly recommend that you should think of designing the inverted "v" perch. These are the best for the fancy breeds.Depending on your preference and what looks like the norm of most fanciers many perches are designed as floor units. There are pro's and cons to this design but absolutely the decision is yours.
