    Hey everyone a few weeks ago I brought home a hungarian giant house pigeon male, and I already had a fantail hen at home, and they paired almost instantly. They are always with each other, grooming each other, and I have seen the male feeding the female. I have even seen them breeding a few times, but they haven't layed eggs yet. How long after they breed should I expect to see eggs? I gave them 3 nest boxes to choose from, and they have been going into them, but no eggs. [​IMG]

    She should lay the first egg about 8 days after mating. She should lay another egg 2 days after the first egg.
