Yes, that is quite normal.

It is okay to have a single pigeon if you keep her company, you can always get another hen for company or a male pigeon.

As long as she is in love she will continue the cycle's. Normally they lay 5 to 10 days after mating.

It is good you are allowing her to sit the eggs as long as possible, this helps get her calcium reserves up. Make sure to always give her grit or other calcium source.

If you are petting her on the back, that will also stimulate egg production. A high protein diet will increase the sex drive, increase of barley in the seed will diminish it.

Thank you, Trees Gray!

YES, indeed, she's in love ~ with a human! So I guess that's why she's going to make more eggs soon!

It's good to know about the barley and high-protein diet! She'll be getting plenty of barley from now on.

She's been petted on the back a lot, so that's gonna stop from now on! Thanks for telling about that!

Yes, she gets extra calcium daily, and we let her sit on the eggs as long as she wants to ~ she's more calm that way, too.

What comes to getting a friend for her ~ as soon as the situation allows another pigeon, it's definitely going to happen!

Thanks for all the info, Trees Gray! Big, big help!

Ippychick & Vivi
