How do I keep pigons out of the barn? Every thing is getting covered with do-do.

Ihave two pigons that keep building a nest on my sky dish today Friday when i came home and had a look from my bedroom window there is a egg in it and not sure if there are any more as one of the birds is sitting in the nest. Just wondered how long it takes for them to hatch and when will they leave. anyone have any idea?.

We fought the battle for years to keep them out of the powerhouse where I work. Noise makers, Dummy owls, flashing lights, poisoned corn, nets, ultrasonic pest repellers, ballons with eyes painted on them, playing music, you name it, nothing worked.
Nets over openings help, but you have to get EVERY opening 100% or they will find a way back in. Especialy the ones hatched there because they are imprinted with that place being home.
The only thing that really worked was a .177 caliber air rifle. An expensive one made for competion target shooting, not a Daisy or Crossman. That along with closing up all the openings you can. It takes a while to clean out the ones who have been living there awhile, but after you do, all it takes is an occasional clean out of the couple who found there way in. And with the air rifle, you don't shoot holes in your barn roof like you would with a 22. We tried .22 bird shot, but it wouldn't kill them unless you got very, very close. The air rifle leaves no mess and there are no repeat offenders.

The first time I went out to capture a pair of gnus, I used a mist net. Perhaps you've seen them used on television to catch birds.
Now, gnus have very sharp eyesight but not sharp enough to see that mist net. Of course with gnus being as strong as they are, the mist nets we used were built out of a composite fiber using titanium and spider web silk.
I doubt if you'll have to use anything that strong to catch your "pigons".

Please help if you know how I can keep pigons off my fire escape. Its such a mess that if there were a fire I would slide off building, Im on the 6th fl. Also my air-cond. is flush with the fire escape and the grate is covered with bird dirt, Im breathing that. Ive cleaned with bleach and hot water a number of times, left red pepper, they don't move, they have no fear, and keep on coming back. HELP.

Shoot em all and then cover the entrances they use...

You'll need to close off all openings - either with screen or completely close off with other means. Especially openings toward the upper part of the buildings. Be sure to close off any silo tops too!

Try putting up cut-outs of falcons or hawks around your roofs. These birds prey on pigeons. It worked well to keep the seagulls off the prison roofs, where I worked.

When I was a kid, and the barn was almost full with hay, we would go in at night and catch them off the roost.
