Maybe not. I have had babies that mimicked their parents defense of the nest but after weaning them, became much more docile. Time will tell.So I went to check my baby pigeons today. There are 4 of them that are perhaps less than 1-2 weeks old. When I try to reach them with my hand two of them bite back over and over just like their fathers. I have never seen such aggression before coming from such an early babies. Yes, their individual parents are bullies. I told myself not to breed them, but I caved in after letting them incubate dummy eggs for many months. Oh well! I have another 3 bullies growing up on my loft. But one of them which is the nestmate seemed to have inherited tameness from the mom.
