Additional Manorial Investments
This is a large “birdhouse” that attracts a hundred or more pigeons and doves for protection and nesting. When it’s time for eggs or squab on the menu the cook goes out and opens up a little door in the back of the nest and grabs a few. This is an especially useful way to get fresh meat in the winter.

This is a large artificial enclosure, surrounded by water (since rabbits do not like swimming), with prepared “pillow mounds” where rabbits and/or hares nest and reproduce with their legendary prolific powers. It is also called a rabbitry, coneygarth or (Latin) cunicularium. Hares and rabbits are notable for their cowardliness, and even knights observing them must note that, once or twice, this helps the rabbits survive, hence the Trait rolls required.
