    The hen has been laying down a lot with a wing tucked. It's pretty cute. The male has topped her several times by now so I'm expecting eggs soon. This laying down is egg building behavior right?

    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...

    So my one dove is being insanely cranky for four days now. We thought she might be getting ready to may her first egg? She is laying on the cage floor all fluffed up. She's always a delight but now she attacks when we out our hands in her cage. I can take her out of her cage and she acts okay...

    Hi everyone, Clem has been a very loud bird ever since we got her, so I was starting to suspect that "she" may be a "he"... but she recently proved me wrong by laying an egg! She started sitting on it in the improvised nest I made, and she's acting like a broody bird is supposed to. The...

    I discovered a hen this afternoon, huddled on the loft floor. She didn't fly off as I approached her. As I reached for her, she merely walked away. Thinking she was in the process of laying, I let her be and ran an errand. When I returned after an hour or so, just now, she was huddled in a...

    Hello We have 2 diamond doves which we got approximately a year ago. We 'rescued' them from a pet shop where the male was in very bad condition. (missing large patches of feathers on his back and underneath his wings, no tail, very small). They start mating and laying around November last...

    Ok so I was out in the aviary when I found a pigeon egg :eek: normally I'd leave it alone, but it was directly under a roost and didn't even remotely look like a nesting spot, so I picked it up. Any ideas what I should do with it? Put it back, put it in an actual nest box, or just have a very...

    I have had 2 pair of white homers for a couple of months now. My question is will they mate in the winter? looks like one male and female are staying in one of the nest boxes together. When the other male comes in they run him out. I have a smell coop with 4 nest areas and in the process of...

    Hi all, I have a mated pair of pigeons. The female (Newbird) has had one clutch of eggs (which we replaced with false ones), but it was at our vet's office, so I wasn't there when she laid the eggs. She's probably due soon to lay eggs (she mated with her mate, Philly, towards the end of...

    I live in Virginia and the temperatures have really been hot. My pigeons are not laying eggs that much right now. Before last month they were laying like crazy and I had to start using fake eggs to controll the population. Is it the heat, the time of year or do you think it is something else...

    I received a mated pair of three year old Ukrainian skycutters about two weeks ago. I was expecting the first egg today. The birds have acted as a normal pair all along, with one doing all of the cooing, strutting, feeding and treading. The other received all of the attention. Last night about 7...

    ...to reduce egg-laying in ringneck doves? I really can't stand when Calliope gets broody. It's only happened once so far but she is so totally unlike herself and uninterested in interacting with me that I don't think I can deal with too much of it! I've read that you should lower the fat and...

    Some so called religous people, whose religion promotes love of animals, had ten white doves given to them as a 'gift'. Due to TOTAL neglect nine died. One white dove remained. I felt for her and took it off them, (they were only too happy) and I have looked after her for at least two years...

    I was wondering if it would be healthy to feed my pigeons chicken layer pellets to help them lay better eggs. Would the hens begin laying infertile eggs like chickens or will they just have healthier fertile eggs. Also, is chicken layer pellet only for the hens or will the cocks become more...
