    I would not raise chickens with pigeons. I believe that they can carry diseases that can spread towards chickens and other poultry.

    No one can guarantee it will be fine, but if your pigeons are mild-mannered and won't attach the chicks, it ought to be all right. Of course, if the pigeons are perching above where the chicks are on the floor, they're going to be pooping on your chicks.
