As a rule of thumb breeding season for pigeons in a perfect world is from February to September. Give or take a month sometimes even two. Special conditions must be met to increase the season.

Here is the simple answer. Put a cock and a hen together in a cage together, nature will take its course. Feed them quality grain, red pigeon grit, water, and a place to nest. It really is that simple.

For one thing, one week isn't enough time.

Usually takes two weeks to a month if un paired. If they're same sex or already had mates, then two months, or so on. This all depends on age and breed even, as some individuals n breeds reach sexual maturity at later age, but generally reach sexual maturity at six months.
