I don't know if it is normal or not, but I got two pigeons about 2 weeks back and I have never heard them make a noise and yet today one of the pigeons is lying down in the nest basket and cooing or "rrroorrrrooorrrooo"ing VERY loudly.
He still gets up and runs away if I try to touch him so thats normal, but he will go back and lie down in the basket again and after a little while return to the cooing.

What is this behavior?

Thanks!

Edit: He has now stopped and is behaving normally. Still curious what that was though!

Well, that does sound like it could be a nesting/mating call One pigeon will get in a nest or box and then call for his (or sometime, her) mate or 'advertise' for a mate (hey girls, I have a nice little pad here).

Are they male and female or do you not yet know that?

I don't know the gender yet, but when I put some little twigs in the cage, an hour later he was picking them up and placing them in all sorts of places. Sounds like male behavior to me! The other pigeon seems totally uninterested so I'm not sure if it is a girl/boy yet. Time will tell!
Thanks for your response.
