    I advise against putting wild pigeons with your domestic ones. Even though the wild birds look healthy; they very well could be diseased or carrying disease. More than likely the wild pigeons would cause the pair to leave their eggs.

    Yes, they look to be wild/feral pigeons.

    Could be escaped/abandoned pets, that all stray and feral.. World over mostly from homers/racers, and meat pigeons, some tumblers/rollers. I've had ferals/strays make pets, just don't put in with parenting birds. Ferals are farther removed and are only blue bar and or checked, you probably have homer or tumblers or mixes of homers and anything else. Most ferals tested show some to most homer blood.
