You sure can! I had pigeons and chickens together for years. They all got along great and went about their pigeon and chicken business, respectively.
Although...I once had a pigeon hatch a chicken egg. One of my bantam sumatra hens flew up to the rafters and laid an egg in a pigeon nest. The pigeon owners of the nest thought it was their egg and proceeded to hatch it. One day while I was in the barn I heard a ruckus up in the rafters and figured one of the pigeons pairs must be parents, so I grabbed a ladder and climbed up there (baby pigeons are so ugly they are cute!) to see. I about fell off the ladder in surprise when I saw the mother pigeon standing (she couldn't even sit!) on top of a newly hatched, fluffy yellow baby chicken. It looked like she had four legs! And she looked mighty confused (I wondered if they had tried to feed the chick yet...). I wound up raising the pigeon-chick in the brooder and she turned out to be a wonderful little hen. :-)
I love pigeons!!! (And chickens, but that's obvious. )
I've had that happen too! Whenever I want to give my birds a break from raising babies, but they still continue to lay eggs, I just switch them out with chicken eggs. Gives them the joy of hatching, but saves them from the stress of feeding. It's really cute to see the chicks under them.
Those pics are awesome What kind of tags do you use? it looks like the ones for clothes, how are you putting them on? do they bother the chicks?
Those tags really are what you put on clothes. The same kind of white plastic tie They don't appear to bother the birds at all. I guess it's no different than tagging a cow or getting your ears pierced. I wouldn't have done it if I didn't have to though Those particular chicks were raised for the pen-of-3 broiler thing at the county fair. When we went to pick up our chicks, they made us tag and vaccinate them ourselves. They did both with 'guns', which made it look more painful than it was. It was hot, and I hadn't eaten anything yet...I almost passed out, LOL.
