Pigeons started breeding too soon


In the Brooder
Mar 4, 2021
I have 2 turkish tumbler pigeons and they hatched a squab about a week ago and already started breeding again. The squab is being fed from what i see. Should i be worried?

Ps. This is the female pigeons first baby. She laid eggs before but werent developing. So i tossed those and she laid again only one hatched.
In pigeon breeding, and hatching here is how it works.
Note the timeline, and you will understand the process. Not all pigeons do this but many do.

Pigeon breeds
10 days later lays egg, and usually within 2 days a second egg.
Incubates for duration. 18,,,19 days and squabs hatch.
Both parents feed
10 days later breeding hanky panky resumes.
10 more days, and hen lays egg.,, second about 2 days after first.
At this point, the first squabs are approximately 20 days old. Hen tends to the nest while the cock continues feeding the squabs solo.
At about 30 days, the squabs are capable to feed themselves, although still beg for food from dad. Dad eventually refuses to offer anymore regurgitated feed, and squabs just have to accept that.

Nothing to be worried about in my opinion. :thumbsup
