My doves recently had their first baby this year. Actually when i was feeding the birds last friday i noticed something moving in the nestbox, when i went to take a closer look it was a baby dove. I was sooo surprised i absolutely had no idea my birds had a baby, nonetheless knew they laid eggs. I was amazed that for the first time my doves could hatch an egg in the middle of freezing winter. Anyways i was soo happy and surprised about this bird. Today when i went to go check up on him i noticed that he was not moving, i found out that the bird has passed away. I felt so upset especially when the baby parents were looking at him, thinking everything was ok. It was so cute. Its such a sad thing to happen, its one of the worse things i dislike about raising birds or animals for that matter.
