    So I got some Pigeons a month ago and they been pairing up. Two of them hatched out two little ones, this morning. [​IMG] Im just wondering if I should Double the feed or do anything different. i don't know anything about pigeons. so any advice would be great. And will anyone know the color of the babies. My Father-N-Law said, they will be black like the hen, cuz Black Spread is dominate over any other color. Is this true??? Here are some pictures. [​IMG] oh and one of the babies beak is white while the other one is black? Does that mean anything??? Thanks in Advance. [​IMG]

    I would say they will be different colors. The one with the black beak will most likely be dark, maybe even black. The other chick will lighter. You will have to wait until their pin feathers come in to get a better idea of what color they will be. You dont have to do anything special as far as care. Just make sure they have plunty of food and water. They will go through more because they are making crop milk to feed the babies. Good luck and have fun watching the squabs grow!
