    Twin Pigeons (feral) successfully hatched and raised by parents from a single egg by my window. Unhatched egg remained in the nest for several days before being ejected. eggs w (2).jpg IMG_0474.JPG IMG_0570.JPG IMG_0588.JPG

    Please please can you post some more? Videos first have to be uploaded to youtube or vimeo. Yes, it is rare but not unheard of.:D

    I will post some more - unfortunately I don't have a clear pic of both chicks actually emerging from the egg as parents were in the way:(

    Do you have one of the two chicks with the unhatched egg still present? That would be almost as good.
    Not sure as I've never done it myself. If you have it uploaded to youtube, just try either way. :caf

    i'll check back later, time to feed my birds.;)
