    Well I baught/given 20 pigeons about a month ago hoping to get some females for my males... Well I thought I had finally gotten some because of the way they acted like they paired up with some of my males. Butttttt.... Now when other males come near them the fight with them... Does that mean they are males?

    PS, one of them I was +100% s/he was a she but now it has been fighting with every other pigeon except "her male" so I had written her off as a nother male... "she" now has been sitting in a nest box for the past day or 2 with the male coming in at night.. so are they a pair, if she is a she? and is she getting ready to lay?

    No. It simply means that they are not interested in those males. If you have had them for over a month, the pairs should have initiated nest building and laid eggs by now. What are you feeding, and have you provided nest sites and nest materials?

    They are just now building nests. I just gave them nesting boxes last week!
    although the loft caught on fire last night so I'm guessing it will delay them breeding?
