    I got 3 Ringneck Dove eggs from my mother in law. (My husband's family has been breeding Ringnecks for years.) One of the 3 eggs was not fertilized but the other two were growing great. Well I noticed around 10:30am yesterday that both eggs started to crack. As the day went by I didn't see much...

    Like the title says, my female ringneck has laid 6 eggs so far this month, 2 roughly every week. I'm fairly certain thats not normal right? Its supposed to be 2 a month if I'm not mistaken. Shes with a male, and I've let them keep 2 clutches over the past year and a half and they've produced...

    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...

I have a pigeon called Zenobia, she recently laid two eggs (her first eggs ever) and she is considerably less active than before, has watery droppings, and doesn't want to eat her regular food (although she eats her favorite food...

    I had a young homer that became egg bound laying her first clutch off eggs. She passed the first egg which was covered in blood and veins. The next day she was very weak and ill looking, and got worse during that day, till her wings were drooping and she looked like she would die. I was...

    My hen has been laying sooooo many eggs. She laid her first 2 eggs last year in June or July. One hatched, and one was a dud. Ever since the baby grew up, she has been practically non-stop laying eggs. She is currently sitting on 4 eggs. I don't know if she has a male... The dad to the first...

    I have two Indian Fantail pigeons as pets. One male, one female. About 4 days ago she laid two eggs and they've been sitting on them since. I've been trying to read up but it seems impossible to find articles on PET pigeons. What can I expect when the eggs hatch? Do the baby pigeons try to walk...

    Hello again everyone! My dove has laid her first clutch of fertile eggs, and unfortunately we have run into an issue. The air sacs are not in the right place! The air sacs on the eggs are both on the side of the egg! They are towards the round end that they are supposed to be, but off to one...

    Hi all- I have a pair of birds who just laid their first set of eggs and are sitting on them (it's day 2)... Problem is, it's starting to get pretty cold here in PA and I'm concerned the new parents may not care for their babies- I do not want to discourage the hen from laying- It's been an...

    Hi everyone! There's a beautiful pigeon couple in my balcony. They have been laying eggs in one of my flower pots. They have hatched a few young ones before in that pot (they started using it when the plant died). I would like to remove that flower pot because they spread the (reddish brown)...

    Hi all- So my fantail pair has been "sort of" sharing the responsibility of sitting on their eggs- But they often leave the eggs unattended off and on for several hours a day- Is this normal? And what are the chances that the eggs will actually hatch as expected? Thanks for input everyone!

    Hi all- One of my fantail hens laid an egg yesterday in a nest in her loft. She and her mate have an entire small loft to themselves- They are a pretty happy pair of pigeons. She laid the egg, then left it and sat up on the loft "porch" for the rest of the day. I'd hoped she would return to the...

    Hii everyone , Today I wanted to know about hatching process. It is about 19 the day from laying eggs. Is it normal to have a crack on the shell before hatching ?? My some friends told me that in summer the eggs can be infertile due to weather conditions. Here in India temp is about...

    Time-sensitive - How to protect a pigeon nest from predators? Hello all, I'll try to make this long story short. I live in the city. I found a feral pigeon nest on my balcony when I moved into my new place a few weeks ago. Soon there were two eggs, and I watched with glee as the parents took...

    I'm new at this, but one of my pairs had just laid their first egg last night, it's twice as big as a normal egg for a pigeon. Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

    Hi, Two of my large pigeon breeds The Lahore and King have recently laid eggs. However I am faced with a problem that within 5-6 days of laying eggs, the eggs are breaking. 1. Sometimes the bird themselves beat the eggs with their beaks 2. Once I saw the entire chest of the female pigeon...

    Hello, for the last two weeks, my pigeons are just sitting normally on their eggs. Normal routine, like swapping with each other to sit on eggs. Until this day came. I am feeding the pigeons.
