Never done it. But just in case you want to do it, be prepared to take care of feeding just in case the parents decided to quit feeding because of the new environment.

guys im getting a pair of homers with 5 days old babies including the nest box.. is that okk?
It's best to let the parents finish raising their kids before they are moved, because as mentioned they may give up feeding them-due to being in different place, depends on their level of tolerance to stress too.

If it is an emergency that they have to go, then make the best of it. Put parents and kids in a nice quiet stress free area, with privacy and fresh seed and water, and access to grit. Let them be and observe.

I can't believe a pigeon fancier would give you a pair of birds with 5 day old babies. That's just plain stupid if you ask me, and you didn't, but still............If you can lock the parents up in a small cage they MIGHT feed the babies, but I sure wouldn't count on it. You will either wind up feeding/raising them or they will die............that's very sad. I'd love to give the person you got the birds from a piece of my mind. :(

i know i feel really stupid and i tried calling him back so i could give these birds back so the babies could survive but he's not picking up my phone :(.i put the nest in the corner and the parents are standing next to the nest but i havnt seen them feeding or going near the babies and when the other pair comes down they try to run them off, o and i saw the other mating last night for the first time can someone tell me why that pair is on the side of the nest box in the corner and not inside?
one thing at a time, the most important thing is these babies, you are going to have to hand feed these babies if the parent birds don't, best to get prepaird NOW. Start by reading.
