Oxygen levels


To be in perfect health a pigeon requires “660 litres of pure oxygen” on a daily basis. [2] Having more pigeons than the loft has enough fresh air to support means that some birds will be deprived of the pure oxygen they require.


Not having enough fresh air circulating the loft is a critical mistake often made by newer fanciers. You never want the loft to feel stuffy, stale or dusty. That said, pigeons don't like drafts so the key is good ventilation with slow moving fresh air.
