Dear friends i am glad to tell u tat she has gifted me with her second egg tooo...i am so happy... i just want to ask u all a question now i don't have a loft and i can't have for one year cos i am living in a temporary place..so i am keeping them in my bedroom..but once they hatch i want to have only 2 pairs (one which i have already and second which is going to born) after tat all i will be replacing with fake eggs...can u please suggest me the cage size may be with partion for a pair..so that they can roam inside flap their wings and do all comforts..as now i am leaving them free inside my bedroom so they poop everywhere and now i can clean also but when it becomes 4 i can hardly clean but i want to have 2 pairs..so i want to make a little big cage to be placed in my bedroom..where i can just replace the paper which i will be spreading in the bottom of cage.....after 1 year i will be moving to my native place in india where i will have a loft arrangement...so please suggest me a cage size for 2 pairs...

Sundar,
CONGRATS on yr 1st pair of eggs buddy :) I remember u said they are in your bedroom, try to give them some nesting materials. If you cannot provide the 'traditional' hay/straw/pine needles etc. then try cutting thin strips of paper [non-newsprint] and give some near their nest. they should start building a nest. Soon you will notice that the male will sit on the eggs most of the day. Make sure u have food/water handy for them. I think it's smart that you are thinking ahead about another cage, but it will still be a while before you need to seperate them, but good advance planning. Also, personally I try to keep egg contact to a minimum, that way reducing chances of abandonment. I'm so happy for you Sundar, you just started recently, and now soon hopefully you will have a family. Eggs [IF fertile..] should hatch in about 19~21 days. Sometimes takes a bit longer. I wish you and your pigeons a happy n healthy new year. Peace :)

Sundar,
No need of 2nd nest bowl yet. Since they just layed 1st pair, probably will not lay till these hatch. It's good u can provide straw, it's fun to see them build a nest. I liked your 1st pics, try to post some new ones. Everyday of the next ~20 days is a big waiting game, but hopefully at the end u get an awesome gift. Good luck :) Peace.

Sundar,
Yes, I think they build a nest till they are satisfied. What I meant by 'fun', is that, I find it cool when they take the straw and build. Even if you only go after 7, your pigeons must feel secure, otherwise they would not lay eggs, so congrats :)
