    My dove, Tinker, has been either flirting and trying to get me to mate with her, making eggs, or sitting on them since last summer. I know this is not good for her and am trying to stop her as best I can. WHAT DO I DO? I don't touch her back, don't let her preen me or try to get crop milk out of...

    G'day thought I'd exhaust my hen if I kept destroying her eggs so found some Jade that has passed for eggs (they're happily sitting on them) my question is how long will they remain broody on these eggs for? I am hoping that the happy couple will remain on them for sometime? or will it be a case...
