    Yesterday I went to go check on my pigeons after school and I saw the two chicks in the nest that the female pigeon was having her new eggs in, they had moved to another nest box. Then I ran in and I the middle of all of them the female and the two chicks I see a egg. the the white one kicked the egg a little by accident he knocked it.

    My question is the egg it wobbled a bit 10 cm but no more and Ijust rolled abit, the mother went on it again 10 minuets after, do you think anything would of happened, or will it be oright, no damage happened to the egg,
    Please answer.

    I put the squabs back to there nest box now and the sometimes walk out to eat some wet bread and seeds, if they go back to the mother she will peck them.

    Is the egg cracked?
    If the egg is not cracked it will be fine.
    Pigeons naturally turn the egg during incubation to insure the properer development of the squab.
