    Now stick that egg under one of your broody pigeons and take a pic of the look on the mama pigeons face. [​IMG]

    Will a Pigeon hatch a chicken egg? And then will she raise it?

    I don't see why not. A chicken will hatch ducks, geese, just about anything you stick under them. Then again, maybe pigeons have more sense than chickens (not a difficult task [​IMG] ). I'm sure the hard part for the pigeon parents would be teaching "their" offspring to fly. [​IMG]

    Don't pigeons feed their babies like robins do? Wouldn't they be a little surprised at the chick that hops out of the nest the day after it hatches and starts feeding itself? I wonder what the chick would think about the mama trying to stuff food down his throat? [​IMG]

    Awww, I'm sorry you had to re-home him. I re-homed two a couple of weeks ago. They weren't crowing too much. They were doing that other thing roosters do, too much. [​IMG]
