Baby pigeons (squabs) are raised by their parents until they're about 30 days old. They are fed pigeon milk so they're very dependent on their parents. I don't recomend keeping them separate from their parents. Their in general, they are raised in compartments similar to a chickens laying compartment. About a 12 by 12 by 12 wooden box.

Don't try and get baby pigeons. It's a tremendous amount of responsibility, and why would you take something from its mother when you don't have to? Get a pair of young birds (ones that have never flown and don't know where home is), bond them to your cote by keeping them locked in there for a while (length of time depends on age, breed, strain within breed) and let them hatch and raise babies for you.
