Hey there, I have Lahore pigeons... I had one pair sitting tight on eggs that were due to hatch in another week, the problem is the male suddenly died (no signs of illness...I think maybe he hurt himself or flew into the wall of the coop or something)... Can the female raise the babies on her own? I've never heard of that or experienced this before... I don't want to lose her and am afraid rearing the young by herself would be too much of a strain on her. Should I take the eggs away now before the hatch draws closer??? Please help. Thank you! Bill.
