Looking good!! FAT little buggers.
Is Mom still taking care of them? Seems like they need some sort of nesting material in that bowl, but if you're afraid Mom will get upset, skip it.:(

mum is doing a good job its almost been 2 weeks since male is gone and she still is looking after them really well they are alway's fed and i change her water 2wice a day morning and late afternoon with new feed calcium pink powder and whatever else i can provide her with one of the youngster's is a little smaller then the other but they both get a good feed from there mummy so there is no problem at the moment though she is not sitting on them enymore i dont think that's a problem she will jump on them when i go near her but otherwise she's mostly sitting on top of the feeder just above the nest bowl and jump's down to feed them
and back up again :s, anyway im off to work ill keep updating

Kormez........I'm very sorry to hear this, however, I would bet you just about any amount of money that Mom didn't kill those babies. TWO weeks old??? I have never heard of such a thing. I think you should check the pen/cage/loft.......whatever they are in and make sure that nothing can get inside. I just can't imagine a 1 pound bird (approx) stomping to death a two week old baby, much less two of them.........that doesn't make a bit of sense.

EDIT:......my mistake on the age.......from your posts it appears the babies are around 10 days old, but still...........just can't see Mom doing this.

Maybe they were just abandonded

At that age, they will flatten somewhat and appear as they were crushed. Their bone structure is not very strong at that age.

The timing of this may not be very good but what breed are these pigeons? They sure were pretty.
