Hello! A few days ago (Sun/Mon) a feral pigeon couple laid 2 eggs outside the window in a flat I rent. I had the area blocked off, as this has not been the first time they've done so (during confinement they raised 2 babies here), and since I had not seen them gathering twigs for 6 months I assumed they found a better window. After reading posts on this site, I determined the most humane thing to do was to boil the eggs, as I did not have time to find plastic ones online. However, in my nervous haste to complete the operation before the mother would notice, I apparently underboiled them. This afternoon, after the father got up from sitting on them for a few hours, I noticed both were partially smashed in. When the mother returned, I saw her nudge them a bit before she got right back on. I have not seen what mother pigeons look like after recently having dropped eggs, but she looks terrible (her feathers and eyes). I have no idea what to do. Could she be sick? Could sitting on what are probably rotten eggs make her ill? I could order fake eggs now but they would take at least 6 days or so to arrive. I could remove them from the nest but they might lay more eggs before fake ones would arrive. Or, I could just do a better job at boiling the next ones. I have been giving her water and some canary seed daily in order to help with her nutrition. I have grown very fond of these two and want them to be healthy and happy. Any input you can share would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
