Hello, i happen to have a pair of pigeons. The cock is black, and I think he may be on the older side. Because his arorta constantly beats fast throughout his body. The hen happens to be an armenian high flier. Shes a year and a half. She has had 2 eggs since she could breed. Unsuccessful though, because she was young. But anyways, she has mated with her mate more then 12 times i think. They mated constantly. And i think it has been 10 or more days, still no eggs. But somewhere i heard to look at there pelvic bone, and if it sticks out, there is a forming egg. Is this true? Also, she takes big droppings. And a little while ago, she pooped but it wasnt poop either, it was white. And constantly she picks stuff off of the ground. Her mate sits in the nest box, cooing for her, messing with the nest material. And then she lays in it to, and he puts nest material over her.. So confused.. help?:eek:

what is there to be confused about ?, everthing seems normal. their not robots, she will lay when it is time, and I would not be poking around on her to find an egg in there, it is not going to make it happen any faster and you may break it and then she would be in trouble. just enjoy your birds eggs or not, it will happen.. they are pigeons. LOL...

Give the pigeons a good environment and time for breeding. Setup a clean nest box with nest bowl and let the pair claim it. Evoke their instinct by providing nesting materials. The better they feel the more chances of eggs and succesful breeding.

Calcium and sunlight are necessary for the pigeons, calcium can be provided in the form of commercial supplements, calcium grit, oyster shells, crushed egg shells, etc. The pigeons should have access to sunlight for various reasons including absorbtion of calcium.

Smashed and torn - Can happen with inexperienced and first time breeders but if the shell seems rough or soft and crumbling calcium supplements are to be provided ASAP and on regular basis
