The practice manual “Management of City Pigeons in (large) Cities in Germany” informs interested persons and authorities worldwide about the animal-friendly city pigeon concept that is successfully practiced in several German cities.

More and more german cities are relying on the successful and animal welfare-friendly „birth control concept“ based on tying the pigeons to pigeon lofts, controlled feeding, and birth control by replacing the eggs with dummies.

Apart from explaining the causes of the city pigeon problem, the handbook presents the overall concept, its aims and framework requirements. Details for practical implementation, such as supervised dovecotes, their building and equipment, feeding and egg exchange are given. The topics deterrence and feeding ban are important parts of the overall concept to ensure that the animals are tied to the dovecotes and spend most of the time inside. These topics are covered in extra chapters, while special attention is paid to wild nesting cells that should be consequently avoided, e.g., by animal-friendly deterrence measures. Furthermore, an overview of the costs is given with examples for different kinds of dovecotes.

Other chapters inform about different methods to check the effectiveness of the concept, how to increase the chances of success and about the best ways to intervene if problems occur. Accordingly in the appendix “Problem-Solving Approaches for Ongoing Projects” three examples are used to show how implementation problems can be clarified and tackled with the help of the manual. Amongst others the appendix includes a 10-point-checklist for the establishment of supervised dovecotes, the methodical approach to pigeon counting and a clarification about the actual health hazard from city pigeons.
