i used box perches befor but ive been told you can put the bowls on the floor and they will nest in them if i was to let them pair after the first few races? i quite like v perches think it keeps the birds clean and dont take up much room?

the answer to your question is no,
thats my opinion
the reason for this is i dont think they will be able to settle and get happy in v perches an how many can fond and call on the corner
if you say 5 ie 4 corners and 1 in the middle,
plus i dont like v perches as they tend to crap on each other and look a mess,

this year we bought in pippo boxes and we had a great year with ybs they were left together, and just moved the pippo boxes as and when felt right,

also on pippo boxes you tend to notice more things in 9 yb races we got the pool bird right 6 times and we only pool 4 each week and starting with 30 its not easy to do

alot of people say the birds get dirty but i seen a guy who only keeps pure white doves all on v perches his birds were fine he said he uses them because the birds drag there tails in the boxes and they get dirty he also said if there was a problem with the size of the v perches they would just make them longer but they dont, ive even seen ybs kept on t perches 6"x2.5" summet like that and i gotta say they looked clean to, im going to use v perches next year id love to use pipo boxes but just take up to much room,i put my hens on poles and its only the floor under the poles that need scraping hens are spotless,its like anything some like some dont hey i mite be on here next year saying who wants 50 v perches lol
