a baby dove or pigeon from egg to adulthood? My only true experience with either of these birds is the "Hey, look! It's a dove / pigeon" when seeing them in the yard or such. I know I am not looking at a baby that comes out covered in fuzz and ready to dig into the chick starter but I do have experience in raising little ones and have successfully reared assorted wild birds (countless cardinals, a few wrens, and one uncooperative snot I almost gave up on that grew into a very cranky Blue Jay). I've done some research on the Internet and come up with conflicting advise so decided I would head here. I am debating on getting a pair of dove (not sure yet what breed) and want to be prepared in case I wind up having to take care of any future babies. Or perhaps start out with eggs and see what happens, I'm still undecided on that.
