    Maybe if you find the doves section / threads and post there, the dove experts may be able to advise.

    All the best and welcome to BYC.

    BYC has a thread for pigeons and doves - put that in the search box and it should pop up. They would be the folks to answer your questions

    Yep go check out the dove pigeon section. They were so much help when I hatched one recently. I do know you have a big job ahead of you though, it's not like feeding baby chickens, it's syringe feeding multiple times a day for weeks. There is a reason doves only ever hatch two eggs at a time lol. How many did you put in the incubator?
