    We lost our pigeons a month ago (predator) and replaced them (2 male & 2 female) and now that they’ve gotten comfortable with theiruu mates and new hutch I found 4 eggs in one nesting box (there are 3 nesting boxes in our hutch). I’m guessing that both females laid eggs in the same box. My...

    I have a bumper crop of king pigeons. Maxing out their space. Bought some fake eggs from Amazon and tried swapping. Fake eggs are clearly smaller. Larger ones not available. The fake eggs usually find their way out of the nest and the birds seem to know their fake. So I stopped using them but...

    Me again, so "Pidge" (yah I know, how original!) who turned out to be a girl, had laid 2 eggs, and as recommended on the previous discussion I had here, I left them. She eventually lost interest and after 21 days, I took them out because she didn't want anything to do with them anymore. I have...

    Throughout my time in the hobby I’ve never had an infertile egg before. Therefore, I’ve never had to candle an egg and have no experience candling eggs. The eggs below are 15 and 17 days old. To me they both look infertile but I’d like to get more opinions before I pull them against my better...

    I’m wondering if my ringneck dove will continue consistently producing eggs for her entire life or if production will taper off as she gets older. If anyone has any experience watching their female pigeons’ laying habits over a long period of time that would be super interesting to know about...

    I’ve had a pair of tumbler pigeons for a few years and although they’ve laid several eggs, none have hatched. Usually they abandon the egg within a day, but a couple days ago an egg was laid and it seems they are caring for it. I know they will leave the eggs if they aren’t fertilized, but it...

    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...

    Hello everyone, this is my first post, so sorry for any mistake. 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...
