Someone stolen my birminghum rollers cock and 1 pair of pakistani Tippler's with their 2 eggs. But my birminghum rollers hen is sitting on the eggs. The babies will ready to hatch today or tomorow. Now what can i do?i know that when the babies are at the age 2 weeks the hen will ready to lay again. Now will i have to hand feed the babies?

I would first see how she manages and if she needs help, yes hand feeding is an option, but just if you see that there is a problem. Sometime one parent still manages to handle both babies. Pigeons are like people, different characters and different as parents.

A single mother, if healthy and experienced, can raise two squabs, that should not be an issue. I really think the mother can easily raise the pigeon to some 15 days without much trouble. After 15 days you can feed them Channa soaked in water a day before.

If you have access to Kaytee Exact for Makau, that also can be fed to the squabs diluted 2 times with water to the way prescribed on the pack. But after 15 days I think you shld do good with soaked Channa, I feed it to all little ones I have.

you can shine a bright light through them -then-no-not fertile,...just doing the math-23 days-fertilized eggs doubtful-//female lays two eggs two days apart-then parents sit for 18 days/they then open the hatchling...sincerely james waller
