    I know you will probably tell me it is not a good idea to incubate a pigeon egg, because of how dependant they are upon you, how you have to feed them, yada, yada, yada.As much as you want to say this, the egg is already 11 days old, so it's to late to back out anyway! I just want to know a few things.

    #1- I Have been incubating the egg at 99-100F is that a good temp.?(I am using a forced air bator)



    #2- The humidity has been between 20% and 50%(the humidity goes down when I sleep, and when I am at work)


    #3- when should I stop turning the egg?



    #4- How many times a day should I feed the sqaub?



    P.s [​IMG] Thank you!!! [​IMG]

    If I am not mistaken they hatch at 17 days. So you should probably stop turning now. I use to have pigeons, but I have never hand fed them. I would guess you should feed them 2 or 3 times a day.
