    Those are great pics. I know nothing about doves. Did not realize they hatched that quick. I learn something new every day at this site.

    Don't know anything about doves. Is the male going to hatch the eggs? By the way he's beautiful.

    FINALLY!!! Good luck on the egg!! Do they normally set the eggs right away? I know my dad's pigeons leave them till they have two, then they set them?
