    Well,

    Most of you know of my pigeons. A lot of you followed Jethro's thread, and I believe I finished that out by telling you Mom & Dad were setting again! Well, a couple days ago Jethro 2 & 3 emerged! That isnt their real names, I just havent named them yet so that's what I'll call em,lol.

    Here they are on June 23rd. This was one day after they hatched. Please ignore the Cantaloupe skin, I dont even know how it got in the pen, let alone the nest! The pic is horrible, I know, but the parents would NOT get up,lol.

    And here they are as of yesterday, the 27th! (I didnt remove the cantaloupe [​IMG] )

    The parents have been excellent. They didnt mind much when I picked them up to put shavings in the bowl, I only got attacked once and that was by Jethro! She's protecting her little siblings,lol. I'll keep you all updated with this pair as well. [​IMG]


    This picture was taken on June 30th.

    OMG! How cool! I didn't know they'd pair up!?! What's the most they'll hatch at a time? And what kind of pigeons are they? I wanted nuns before but haven't had the right space to get into pigeons.

    Wow, those things are kinda homely! It's sort of like the "ugly duckling" that grows up to be a swan, because Momma Pigeon is gorgeous! [​IMG]

    Good thing adults are sooooooo pretty, or I'd be scared off of ever seeing pidgeons again! [​IMG] I'm just kidding. They're cute in their own messed-up little way [​IMG]
