Hi all,

My recently adopted female pigeon, Alice, just finished laying what I believe is her first ever clutch of eggs. There was what looks like a bit of blood on the second egg – but none on the first (see attached image of second egg). The egg was intact and I could not find any traces of blood on her cloaca. I have found some droppings in her territory that are a bit light-red / tannish, but I don’t know if that could just be from the red grit. I couldn’t find any actual blood in her territory, including no blood around any droppings. Alice has also been tail-bobbing a bit after laying her second egg.

Do you think that this is anything to be worried about?

Thanks so much,
Howard

Hi Howard,

Congrats on your first eggs (from Alice) :)

Since you have checked the rear of Alice and not found anything troubling, I would say this is nothing to be worried about.

~The fact that there is red grit around, might have led to staining the egg.

I would suggest keeping a close eye on her to make sure she is not in any pain/discomfort.

Good Luck :)
