    My first 2 baby pigeons! They are a cross between a wing pigeon (it starts with a t?) and an Archangel!
    Is there a way to tell if they are male/female from birth?
    And How long until they leave the nest/parents strat a new nest?
    What will they look like?

    I never could sex them at birth but it won't take long. The parents will start a new nest when their current chicks are about 4 weeks old. Since both parents share the squab duties it is amazing to see how they work running two households out.
