I am a first time youth 4H pigeon owner of a two Birmingham Rollers, we got them about 5 days ago and they are being quarantined inside in an area bigger than a large dog kennel with a nest, 2 perches, food, water, puppy pads and newspaper on the bottom. We got them at a poultry show from a man who is trustworthy and they seem healthy besides the occasional sneezing (though the room is VERY dusty because of button quail who are housed in here temporarily as well) There were 8 total birds in the pen and people just took what they assumed was a male and female because there was was no designated pairs. I took home an almond female and a blue spread male and the male has begun to bow at her and make tons of sound as well as they groom eachother and other cute things. 1. How long does courtship usually last? 2. How long until he may begin making a nest? 3. If its only day 5 and hes already courting her does that mean it could all happen sooner rather than later?
