I wanted to post this really great video that I came across that shows a fantastic stress-free method for basketing your pigeons. Most of it is due to the design of the loft which is extremely efficient in limiting stress on the pigeons as well as the fanciers, and the relationship these fanciers have with their birds.
The loft is the pigeons home and naturally home should feel relaxed, comfortable and safe and this method for basketing ensures that the birds continue to feel that way even after basketing. If your thinking of building a loft or in the middle of building one I highly recommend cloning this design. Check it out below and enjoy!
