Yikes! I do not want to even think about that part yet. My hubby thought I was joking when I told him about the artificial eggs! I do look forward to the first babies but right now that seems so far off. I have lots to learn between now and then. I also look forward to one day being in a position to help out a newbie like myself. I would think that it brings great satisfaction to bless a newbie with a few pigeons and help them along.Glad you and the kids enjoyed the show and brought home some birds.
In a very short time--6-8 months-you will have birds to give away. They mutiply fast.
Be sure to band them -keep records which squabs are from which pair.
