Doves, ok. sometimes they will sit together, sometimes not, I have three hens and they sit all in the same basket. when I had my male he just took turns with the hen, I did not see them sit together at all, so not sure if that is normal, but it seemed like it was, as pigeons take turns as well.

I think it is 14 days incubation, so you should know by that. do they have one or two eggs?...and FYI, you will need to take the weaned babies out and put them in their own cage, because the adults, esp. the male will want to fight with them and pick on them and they can get injured.

yes, it should beable to fly when weaned,but not well.(they need practice) and weaned is when it does not need the parent birds any longer. so you got 7 more days till the big day!:eek::)
