they probably just tried to fly for the first time, and fell out of the nest. you should put them back outside quickly! the parents can, and will still feed them on the grownd! Even if you have touched them. make sure cats and dogs are not around. If you decide to raise them, they will NOT be able to be relesed back into the wild! They will grow up thinking they are also humans! you will be stuck with them! If the parents don't come back, let us know.
good luck, thanks for helping these birds!

wait! If they are still young, they still need their parents to feed them "pigeon milk" from their crops! Are they pigeons or mourning doves?

If they can eat seed, and they can fly, they will be ok outside. mabe keep your dog inside and see what the young birds do out side if they do eat seed.

look outside near the place you found them, look up, and see if you can find a nest.

It will be on a ledge not likely to be in a tree.

forget about puting them outside they are to young and need to be in the neast in order to be cared for by the parents. also you will need to buy some hand feeding baby bird formula from a pet store. they cannot survive on crushed seed. they need formula!
you may be able to find a rehabilitater in your area who can raise your birds, or better yet get some foster parents for it so that it wont imprint on humans.

Can you let us know your location?

Have they got their eyes open yet? They will need to be fed baby bird formula like Kaytee Exact...don't try squirting anything into their mouths.
