Less than 10 minutes ago a friend came to me with two pigeon eggs. She says a lady has been trapping pigeons for the last 5 days and was keeping the cages in the sun with no water and a note saying 'If you want to feed the birds throw food in the cage but don't let them out'. The cages were in near a public creek and not on any privet property, so after 5 days with no water my friend finally let them out. Problem is after the birds took off there were 2 fertile pigeon eggs in the corner of the cage, and without an incubator she figured my chickens would be the next best thing. My question now is my buff orpington is broody and ready for some chicks. I already put them under her and she seemed fine with them so far. Will pigeon eggs hatch under a chicken? To my knowledge the temperature and humidity between the hatching of these birds is pretty much the same, and there are story's with pigeons hatching chicken eggs. Any help and tips? I've only ever hatched chickens, and have little experience with pigeons let alone their chicks.
