I got the parents off Craigslist for $20 for the pair. this was their first hatch. It was two eggs but one egg had a small crack and didn't develop so I took the other egg out and stuck it in the bator with the chicken eggs i was hatching. The day before hatch day I stuck it back underneath mom and both have been taking great care of this little one. the baby dove is exactly 15 days old today. This is the baby when it was first born. Do dove parents normally groom their babies? I notice that the parents seem to pick through the baby's feathers - doesn't seem to be hurting it because it doesn't move away... Is there any way to tell if it's a boy or a girl??
