Welcome to the site. Plenty of great members on here willing to give advice. As Buster says you will get many different ideas and advice as there’s no right or wrong way of keeping them apart from a few fundamentals. The main one being the loft. Doesn’t matter on size, depending on the numbers kept, as long as it’s dry and safe for the birds. 

You will have many different decisions to make but a great sport to get into.

Whether you decide to race or not, and at what level, you just want to enjoy having the birds. 

Ask as many questions as you want, there’ll always be someone willing to give advice, and as said, no question is a silly one. 

Best of luck with your new venture.

Welcome the forum Kneeout, hope you find it both useful and enjoyable.

As others have already there are many ideas on how to keep and race pigeons, there is plenty of information and knowledge on this site so read the articles and keep asking questions and we will help out the best way we can. The main thing for me is when first starting up just keep it simple or you will soon bog yourself down and the pleasure will soon disappear. Over time you will find a set up, system and birds that suit you and the time you have. 

Look forward to hearing more from you and following your progress, enjoy 🤠👍
