It is getting late in the breeding season with declining daylight hours and cooler temperatures you may have to wait until the February rains.

You could possible introduce supplementary lighting.
I used an old Styrofoam cooler when one pair of pigeons hatched squabs on December 26 (that is uncommon in my loft that late in the year.)
I put the nest bowl in this when they could no longer cover the squabs and keep them warm. I live in Canada (think NORTH POLE.)

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.
