I'm thinking about picking up some birds to train with but I need some questions answered before making the decision. I know winter isn't prime time to keep up with birds but is it possible to keep the birds outside if I were to build a coop or do they need to stay indoors? In regards to building a coop is one sq foot per bird enough? The birds would be chukar/bobwhites/pigeons.
I have no intentions to breed the birds...I'm solely interested getting a my pup on some birds.
