Hi, I have a carneau pigeon that just laid eggs and hatched them in mid-November in Kansas were it is about 20 degrees. Will the babies be okay?

I'm by no means a pigeon expert so I'd wait to hear what others have to say before you take my advice. In colder weather, squabs will be incubated by the parents until they are fully feathered. The issue is is that sometimes the squabs grow too big to be fully covered by the parent, making incubation impossible. In this case it may be required for you to provide some heat somehow until they are fully feathered, which I believe is around two weeks after hatching. Good luck!
