    i will get a beter pic later when dad is setting, but whenever i peek in the box it dosnt look like their sitting on the egg rateher their tail is over it, but when i feel the egg, its warm. they are really protective and when mom sits (4:30pm-11:00am) dad stands ontop of the box shooing away the pheasants my question is is that how they sit on the egg? they are going on day 5, yesterday i found a dry, cushed egg in the corner so they only have one egg they were never sitting on two eggs

    Best to use nest bowl, keeps the eggs together and under the pigeons.

    My word of advice, get the eggs outta there while you can! [​IMG]

    I thought it would be fun to have baby pigeons, and my pair have hatched 5 so far and are sharing their last clutch of the season! Ugh, too many pigeons!


    Actual word of advice, just make sure the parents have plenty of feed and water. They should do the rest!
