[Our Lofts] [Tips & Tricks] [Racing Loft] [Pen Floors]

Site last updated on 10/19/17

I have tried many different floors and here is my favorite.

When it comes to loft design, what works best for a given fancier is something that meets their own personal requirements and works in their particular climate. There are some aspects though that I believe are universally required - no drafts, good ventilation, plenty of space and dry.

My loft is in Central California. We have hot summers and wet winters with strong winds. I work long hours outside of the loft and so I can’t scrap the loft every day. These are some of the factors which shaped my requirements for the “ideal floor” for my situation:

  1. Keeps the birds reasonably clean and out of the droppings
  2. Gives the loft manager the option to clean at the frequency that suits their situation - even monthly if that is the case.
  3. Does not promote drafts
