    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.

    Hi, new pigeon owner here. I recently acquired a lovely Indian Fantail pigeon. Regarding their sleeping habits, what can I do to make her comfortable while resting/sleeping? Do they prefer nesting bowls, blankets, or just material to rest on? Thanks for your time.
