They mate for life, but damn cocks still want some hens. But the cock will not allow that hen to go inside the nest box from my experience.
Pigeons do mate for life, but some breeds are of different temperament, and mating may be a very sensitive issue. Also, are they secure within their nesting box?I have a odd situation I think? I have a american fantail hen, who mated up with a French Moden. The oddest couple I have ever seen. Well after several attempts at mateing,it seems the have had ireconsilable differences. They both are looking for new mates. Does this happen offten? I thought pigeons mated for life, or until separated?
