I have a young pair who will brood their first young this spring, I hope. They have been together about 3 weeks now and mated at first, groomed each other and all the normal pre-laying activities one might expect. They built a nice nest and both spend time on it. Im wondering how long it might take for them to actually lay their egg. I am new to doves having raised chickens for years. Im looking forward to watch them rear their young but it is looking like each one is waiting for the other to lay the egg!!! Is it possible that they are both males or would they not be getting along.
