1. I have a pair of Birmingham Rollers, positive its a male and female at this point. 2. They've been sitting in a nest I made them (Its in a dish, with a bunch of nesting materials) and they've made it their own. 3. Haven't seen them mate/breed as of yet, though someone else maybe have saw them kissing while they passed through one day. 4. They cuddle I believe I saw him "clapping" which I read somewhere that that can be a sign of him either getting ready to mate or after mating though I haven't seen or heard enough commotion to assume they were mating yet. How long does it usually take for pigeons to begin mating? How often will they mate before stopping and becoming ready to lay? Will they mate until the day she lays? Should I expect an egg soon? I don't know how old they are, though they've been together for over a month and have been what I would call "flirting" especially the boy who lays so flat he becomes a pancake and does a little sound that is like a LOUD hum? Not exactly a grunt but like a loud hum for 20 seconds then usually makes little happy sounds and snuggles her, does that mean anything?
