It does take a lot of time just rearing one baby. They have to be hand fed formula several times a day. Most people do not sell or ship pigeon eggs for the reason, unless the person receiving them has a pair of foster parents ready to lay. It may be best to get a pair of adult pigeons first while you're still learning, before you decide to take on something like this :) With a pair, you can let them raise a couple babies, and you can handle them a lot while they're young so they are tame. Another alternative is simply getting some newly weaned youngsters to tame, instead of adults.

Here's an article on incubating and raising squabs:
