Would anyone happen to know how I can keep 2 baby Pigeons alive? What should I feed them until they are old enough to eat by themselves? Is it possible for me to hand raise them? We went to the Poultry auction last night and I peeked into one of the boxes up for sale. Inside were these two really ugly little birds, one a bit bigger than the other (maybe a bit older). Whoever brought them in, didn't even have enough sense to put pine shavings in the box that was 3x too big for them. They were shakey and very cold. They don't have many feathers, but after looking up pics online I have figured out they are probably close to 2 weeks old. Nobody else bid on them, so I snagged them for 20 cents each. I figured if they were going to die anyways, at least they would do so warm and snuggly here. I can't imagine how the people that brought them in expected them to live? They are still at the age they need fed by a mother bird. Last night I mixed warm water with chick starter and force fed them a little of that. They snuggled together under the heat lamp and slept most of the night. The smaller one that was cold and near death is now warm and lots more active. Anymore time at the sale in that cold and it would have died.
