    That would mean that if and when she lays a egg it might be fertile---It does not take a rooster/male for the female to lay eggs---only to make those eggs fertile.

    In a perfect world the first egg should arrive in about 10 days or less.

    It definitely sounds like a breeding pair of pigeons. Just to make you aware same sex pairing do sometimes happen (it is fairly rare I must admit).
