    Have two nest bowls, one in each back corner of cage. they then lay, two weeks about after those eggs hatch, the female lays in second nest, at that time the female sets eggs mostly and male mainly cares for young. cycle repeats when those eggs have have hatched and young are a couple weeks old. so on and so on, as long as cage is 40" x 40" x 40" and are only keeping one breeding pair/parents with two youngest nests of young. well all my pigeons work that way, except parlors and flying flights that allow and care for older young longer than acceptable by other breeds.
