I have the same problem (pigeons, that is). They are pooping all over everything in the barn.
I bought a couple of boxes of .22 shells with the birdshot in them. I figgered that using the 12 ga. would be a bad idea - BLAM! - I could see feathers and slate erupting from the roof of the barn - bad idea. I thought the .22 shells would do the job. They didn't. I fired about 20 rounds point blank into the little buggers, and all it did was frustrate me. Every time I shot one of them they would commence to flap around the barn. Then they got wise, and quit cooing. One of them was ducking his (or her) head in aond out of a hole in the roof, peeking at me and pulling back right away.
I don't know, but I am ready to get the 12 ga. out, and to heck with the roof. It needs to be replaced anyway.
