    My friend had 2 doves foisted upon him and I agreed to foster them for a bit. White and young are all I really know. They, well, just aren't doing much of anything. I can reach in and move them and they'll stay wherever I put them. My friend believes that they are weaned, but probably just...

    I have a dedicated mother Mourning Dove who has hatched her babies. I noticed crows flocking around my patio while she was nesting but on each occasion they would leave when I appeared waving my broom. Now the babies have hatched and this morning there were at least a half dozen crows...

    I've got a pair of white garden doves. They had 2 eggs which hatched 10days ago. On day 8 I noticed that one squab was only half the size of the other. I thought it would die and being a softie I took it out of the nest and have been trying to handrear it in the house. It's still with me today...
