    Aaron is most likely right.
    Not every pair of pigeons will raise 3 squabs. Usually the last hatched dies.
    I did have one case where pigeons raised 3 squabs.

    Sorry about the multiple posts my connect is odd out here and even thou I only click once it doubles it sometimes...however this is the first its done it three times...Anyway I'm not sure how familiar you are with hand feeding...I've been doing it with pigeon (or helping my mother) sense I was six I've had very good luck with it and have done it countless times and have only lost two due to other issues they had.. So please feel free to ask if you need...I'm not sure of any good websites but I know some of the other guys on here might know of some!! I use a recipe my mother came up with when I first started for feeding very young babies that from my experience works very well and would be happy to share if you need it
