Can I buy a Dovecote for display purposes?
Some choose to purchase a dovecote specifically for their picturesque beauty and they look very attractive in all types of gardens. There will be the occasional birds that will decide to nest in it during the season. If you wish to do this, it is essential that you keep the dovecote clean and avoid large amounts of mess being left on the dovecote. There is nothing to stop you from housing doves in the future.
We have had customers in the past that have chosen to purchase a dovecote for display purposes and overtime, decided to purchase doves after a few years of owning their dovecote, building up their knowledge on how to keep doves.
Either way, it is a great addition to any garden. If you decide that you would like the dovecote for display purposes and you would prefer to not have any birds nest in the dovecote, it may be worth putting netting in the door openings from the inside. Dovecote homing netting would be suitable.
