If everything goes the way it has in the past day after tomorrow there will be another egg in there. Now just how is this going to work:confused: I'm totally :confused:now. Just when you think your getting a handel on things another curve pops up in your path.:eek:

The way I see it there going to be taking care of two babies and setting on two eggs and the same time. I thought after the two babies were about four or so weeks old, then they would start the second round.

well that is interesting and I haven't heard of such a situation, hope some of our senior members can throw light into it.

Just make sure that the baby is getting fed and has full crop, still sitting on the eggs means less time to eat even with the babies around so it would be a good idea that food and water is available round the clock.

The second set of eggs are usually laid when the babies are about 3 weeks of age. Do you have another couple that may have actually laid the second or first set, or a single hen that could have snuck in the second set?

When pigeons are brooding eggs they are not mating anymore, they have one purpose and that is to hatch those eggs.

I would remove the second set of eggs.

I have three more pair in there that hasn’t laid eggs yet. I will have to wait till the other egg hatches to see which one to take out. I hope one dose hatch so I know. I have one pair that the first egg hatched two days ago and the second egg hasn't hatched yet. The two pair laid within two days of one another.
