Best not to incubate pigeon or dove eggs in incubators. Try other eggs as these will need hand fed.

They have to be hand fed from day one, about every 2 hours when starting out. Not to mention the bird will grow slower and not nearly as healthy as those who are raised by their parents with pigeon milk. Just not a good idea.

I was given a baby runt, because it was rejected by it's parents, and the breeder knew i was getting into runts. So she gave me the baby, as long as i was willing to put up with the care. Needless to say, I'm finding out what it's like to be a single parent REAL fast! I will say that the baby is feathering in well, and is very social(loves to cuddle). But unless i have an emergency situation(IE; hand feeding my own clutches)...I could honestly do without the lack of sleep, and general social life. LOL!
