*Got new babies* Need suggestions on new pair of pigeon which has laid an Egg

Hi,

Yesterday I got a pair of Pigeons. The loft was not ready, som finishing work was pending. So I thought for a time being I'll keep the pigeons in a closet. Its actually an wodden almira mdae of ply wood with compartments. The compartment is spacious.

Before I could have moved the loft in open, they laid an egg in the compartment and I made sure that they get the nest material and proper food and water.

I wanted to know since the loft is ready shall I move them from my home (currently they are inside the house) to the loft. If I have to do this I have to transport the nest first which is in a packing carton, so I can lift and transport the carton without touching the nest and then transport the pigeons.

Is this really suggested. If not I'll have to keep them in the almira for next few weeks and then put them in the loft. Kindly suggest me what care should I take if I have to keem them inside house.

Thanks

IF you want to take the chance and move them now, before the second egg is laid, they may or may not abandon them. They may accept the eggs, especially if the eggs are still in the same nest and box.

If they refuse the egg/s, and there is no incubation, it's not really no loss.

It is up to you, the birds do need to settle in their new coop.

I would go ahead and move the pair along with their nest and egg to the loft. They'll be much happier there (and so will you). The hen WILL lay another egg....whether she sits on it or not remains to be seen. If she does, good, if she doesn't, believe me,...there will be plenty of eggs.
If you keep them in the house, you're talking about another 2 months probably, by the time they incubate the egg, hatch them if they're fertile and then raise them.
If they're going to wind up in a loft anyway.......might as well put them there and let them get used to it.

Got Two Babies

Hi Treesa & Reene,

Following your suggestion, I shifted the pigeons along with the carton, in their loft. They didn't abandon the eggs and finally Yesterday two sweet babies emerged out of those eggs.

Thanks for your suggestions :)

Baby Pigeons - Day 14th

Here are these two fighting for the food


This one has really grown well and eats up most of the share of the little bro/sis. Thought will keep him/her out for a little, while the small one is getting its portion




Here's the small kido
