    curious....i've only heard of pigeons taking care of their own. How does a pigeon chick get raised w/o being hand fed? Or is that what you have to do? I'd be VERY interested in snowy eggs...but if I have to handfeed a pigeon..not so much those.

    I am pretty sure the pigeons are altruical birds meaning they need their mom to feed them where as ducks, chicks etc are precocial birds.

    Yeah, what they said. Also, pigeon egg shells are kinda thin, I dont think they would hold up well in shipping.

    Hi everyone...sorry I dont know much about the pigeon eggs as my wife just got the breeders a week ago and they laid them the last 3 days. If this is the case with the eggs then I am not going to sell them and I suppose they are no good since we took them away. Will not do that again! If you are interested in the duck eggs they are available I will just add a few more to the order if you want them.
