**Please DO post as many as you can.

I could always place something on the floor so as to 'cushion' the fall. But I think Renee has it right. As soon as they're a couple weeks old, I can move the basket over. Appreciate the input Renee.

Yep! you sure can. THANK YOU for keeping on top of things, Treesa.
I had a slight cold about 3 weeks ago & it has come back ten fold. Apparently my head is more congested than I thought.

Cindy, my 2 cents worth.....depending on how deep in the nest they are, even tiny babies can wiggle some and parents can move them around too so they could possibly fall out. If they are "low" in the nest I wouldn't worry too much but if the nesting material is up high in the basket, I would worry and probably move them over Rae Charles now.

It's ok to worry! Impossibel not to worry over such precious, adorable babies.
Just imagine how scary it would be to be a mommy or daddy pigeon and have no option other than a building ledge in NYC.

They are beautiful Cindy. As far as I am concerned the more pictures the better!

If moving the nest in one go proves to be too traumatic for them (two of my pigeons had hysterics when I replaced their damp nest with a dry one of a different shape) you could move it sidewards or downwards just a bit at a time.

Have the others reacted to the babies?...Any whispering going on or do you think they were privy to the surprise?

Cindy,

Just found your post and so delighted for you. They are simply adorable. No other word for it. I can only imagine your surprise when you found the first and then the second! Your heart must have nearly jumped out of your chest.

In answer to some of your questions.
I would not move the nest right now. It looks fairly deep and I doubt they could fall or even be accidentally pushed out. I tried to move a nest with newly hatched last year and the parent birds freaked and wouldn't go near it till I moved it back in the "right " place. Cynthia's idea of small incremental moves might do the trick. New parents are pretty skittish, especially if it is their first babies.

Daily pictures would not only be welcomed but looked forward to. There is nothing as sweet as watching babies grow up. Sounds like they are going to be 3/4 Old Dutch. What is the other 1/4?

My heartfelt congratulations to Malio and Sadie and blessings on the new tykes.

Hugs, to Grandma,

Margaret
