    I had two baby pigeons that just started getting feathers and one day one of the babies was all bloody and drug out of the nest and the next day the other one was not bloody but was just dead and pulled out of the nest. I had a heat lamp on them and they where not cold. I just do not know what happened so please help I just had 2 more babies hatch.


    Thanks,

    The other male birds in the flock will kill the young

    Just Have Mated Pairs In The Breeding Loft . Extra Unmated Birds Cause Trouble . Did You Have Two Nest For The Pair Of Birds In Question ? Some Cocks Will Start Driving The Hen To Lay Again So A Second Nest Is Needed Babies Get Abanned Or Neglected . At This Age Sometimes I Remove The Cock For A Day Or Two .

    I did not see another nest but I do have extra male in the pen so I guess I need to move out of the pen. Thanks [​IMG]
