Hi. I'm babysitting a pair of fantail doves and it looks like they are going to hatch one of their eggs. Didn't expect it as their tails aren't trimmed for breeding and their owner hasn't had any stay with an egg long enough to hatch it in the three years she has had them. She recently got a new boy though and he actually remembers to sit on the eggs when she gets off. I have two eggs in there, one is white and the other has changed to a creamier colour which I was told they do as they develop. Anything I need to know for hatching? Apparently these show birds are not known for their parenting skills either and their eggs and babies are often fostered with regular doves. So what do I watch for as signs they aren't parenting properly? Should one stay on the nest like with the eggs? Or do they both get off to find food ?
