dummy eggs

  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    How exact in size should dummy eggs be? I ordered a set of dummy eggs for my prolific ringneck dove pair. Yesterday she laid an egg and I swapped it for a dummy egg. However, I was then able to notice the size difference. Is the larger dummy egg still going to fool her? Or does it not make...

    New Pigeon Question: Where can I get dummy eggs?? I have a female who has twice laid two infertile eggs. We started this wonderful experience after my husband rescued a baby pigeon fron extermination, as his place of employment was doing so. Now are pursuing a beloved passion And would...

    This is my first time with pigeons and thanks to the people on this forum I am learning a lot. I understand that young birds might not make good parents so it is best to substitute dummy eggs for their own eggs, until the birds are about a year old. I have birds less than six months old, so I...

    These, of course! Walked into the breeder/OB loft yesterday, and when everyone came off their nests to eat, I heard the loudest peeping coming from a nest on the floor in the corner. At first, I thought, "Well, one of my 'teens' got in to eat the pigeon's food and can't get out". But nope, no...

    I have one (impulse buy from a pigeon show) pouter that is about 2-3 years old and this is probably the the third time today that she's been trying to chat up one of my fantails (the fantail called Homer...hehehe) anyway, i think that she is lonely, she tried to foster Pooper's eggs a few days...

    She laid an egg. At first she took an interest in it but the next day she sort of ignored it. I guess she knew it was no good. She had bunched herself up in a corner and when I came near her, she started to beak me. That's when I knew it was serious. I kept thinking to myself, I think...
  10. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I was wondering about pigeon psychology, do they always do better with other pigeons than on their own? will some introduced pigeons not get along or fight and have to be separated? I recently rescued a feral that wont ever fly again and will be giving him or her to a friend who also has a...
  11. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi all, A few days ago I started a thread about my lightwell being "pigeon-proofed." I feel so sorry for the pigeons because it was an ideal habitat for them. They would fly up to the roof and then down into one of two lightwells that faced a blank wall on the neighboring building. There...

    Since Brad requested I put all my questions in one place at one time I'm posting them all here. What proximaty do pigeons have to be to one another to catch things from one another? How close to the floor should a nesting box be? Can you transfer illness to your pigeons after being at someone...

    Folks, Much to my shock, my 2-yr-old single Birdy laid an egg last night. Obviously not the male I thought I got last summer! I am not happy about Birdy laying an egg; frankly it kind of grosses me out. However, I am not moving the egg or the nest until she gets tired of sitting on an...

    I hesitated posting or showing this video because it seems so hostile. I have never experienced such unbridled hatred from my hand raised runt pigeon before. My interactions with her have always been much more "demure" than this. I'm sure it was the new video camera that caused her to get so...

I have three pairs sitting on eggs and have just finished building my new loft (Redrose style), I have nest boxes with fronts that the birds could be locked in. I was planning on moving...
