My late bird :( Claire used to do the head bow, tail down, rush forward thing whenever she saw me. It's a courting display. We also did the pigeon kiss where I held her beak and she vibrated. She layed too eggs for me once as well. I believe pigeons only lay when they have (or think they have) a mate. I was Claire's.....it appears you are Snow White's :)

Cherish your little girl, my dog ate Claire and I still have times of intense sadness. I have other pigeons, but she, like yours, was very special.

Oh and the egg will be infertile. If she is sitting on it it's best to let her continue for 18-20 days. Better yet replace with dummy egg so there is no chance of breakage. Also, expect another egg in about 48 hours, usually they lay two. Sitting on them prevents her from becoming calcium deficient from laying too many. You may want to up her calcium if she continues to lay.
