Assuming I have Homing Pigeons.
1} What are ideal dimensions for a nest box? (side to side, top to bottom, deep)
2} What are ideal dimensions for a nest bowl? (diameter x depth)

Thanks for any help.

How deep do the bowls need to be?
Can the bowl be square?

Smile I have a very old Chevrolet hub cap that I have looked at a few times, thinking it should work. I like the idea of two bricks in the corner.
