I have two pigeon eggs but one is cracked slightly. Will it hatch?
And how do you feed the babies?
labai grazi nuotrauka. ryt kaiptik lekiu aplankyt kapeliu ir mociutes i mosedi.
Okay, well i for one hate pigeons, I hate the disgusting messes and smell they cause, and I hate having them nest on my sill. We've recently moved into an apartment with a severe pigeon problem. Well, they've already had two eggs hatch and they have been sitting on another pair for a week. The entire sill is full of caked poo. One of the 'teenage' pigeons has its foot tangled in a string that prevents it from flying away. I am so squeamish that i can't get the nerve up to put my hands out in all that disgusting poo and cut it free from the string tied to calcified poo, but if I don't do it soon, I'm going to have a full sized dead pigeon rotting on my sill. Today I got so frustrated about my little sill that I nudged the two eggs on the end off. When rats, mice, and cockroaches have "babies" no one seems to care much if they are exterminated. Cockroaches don't carry diseases, so why is it gross when they multiply, but okay if the pigeons do it? Why is it okay to eat chickens and turkeys and cows and be responsible for the death of thousands of animals over a lifetime of grocery shopping and not okay to dispose of a couple of pests on your sill?
I'm just posting this as a response to everyone sympathizing with the pigeons. I do NOT sympathize. I am NOT sorry I threw the eggs away. Because you know what? If they have babies, they will always come back to the same spot to nest. And then their babies will do it, and so will their babies. And then when your entire sill is covered in calcified poo, and someone else moves in, then that lucky someone else will have to deal with the disgusting mess and the dead birds along the way...
The person who made the poster is awesome!
I'll admit I didn't kick any pebbles off of the path today, as I was on my bike (not walking). But I'll remember to do that in the future.
Is that conceptual art or a concerned user? Or both ! I like the fact that some coupons were taken. Vic you are awesome.
Hi, please help, i'm heartbroken... i've been watching pigeons in an enclosure i made on my balcony, very secure, no egg could have rolled out and no other animals ever come onto the balcony, not that the eggs could have been seen anyways.
One was gone this morning! TOTALLY gone! No egg, no eggshells, non hatchling. i couldn't find even a tiny piece of shell, and i looked on the ground below the balcony for an hour, nothing.
Do pigeons eat their own babies?!!? What could have happened to this egg!? Do they ever transport the eggs or babies to other locations in their beaks like a cat does!?
FYI the other egg looks like it's about to hatch, the father is sitting on it, i can't believe they would have left it alone even 1 minute, for months i have not seen them leave without one of them on it... so what could have happened!!?
Unless they are pets then they will return
Those are not pigeon eggs. They only lay two.
Is crazy drivers there. It not big traffics that make problam. Is the all for the sudden unpredicts that make a harm on people. Not big respects for walkers on streets -- or sidwalks!
Go to see what you're up to, looks like you've to been staying active and enjoying yourself. The Junction, eh, wasn't there a horror story on W5 of a pop and son team and their dopey pitbull terrorizing a dear old widow in the other half of the double and the Ernest Ave. neighbours in general. Freaking scary!
My husband found a baby pigeon about 6 months ago, and decided to keep it as a pet. Our problem now is, she laid 2 eggs about 3 weeks ago and now we don't know what to do with them???? Should we take them away from her?? Will she continue to lay eggs??HELP!!!!
That's grodi, man.
Hey Vic - like the new stuff and the photo highlights... with descriptions... keep it up! your amsterdam shot at dusk is beautiful.
Good to see you found your way here again. I'll keep an eye on your blog, and I hope you enjoy that 7D!
Glad to see you back and blogging buddy. Excellent entries! I finally got into blogging after one of my IRC buddies talked me into it.

My balcony is home for a pair of pigeon, four months back they laid two eggs, both eggs hatched successfully, a pair was born, in six weeks they took off, they did try to return but the father didn't let them stay there. Again female laid two eggs two days back but today I discovered that one egg was broken, will they abonden the another egg? or female will lay another egg?
Someone help me. I love animals of all kinds. My brother found a pigeon egg on his balcony. He was going to throw it away. The info I need is =

Dogs also inhale pigeon pop and get crytococs or how ever it is spelled and get extreamly sick and need to be treated with medication that cost 600 a month for 5 months!!!!
Except for the purposes of study and curiousity, anyone who raises wild pigeons is cracked! I am sick and tired of cleaning up the poop on my balcony and finding my flowers flattened from being sat on and pecked at. As far as I'm concerned, pigeons are no better than flying rats! If you find a fresh newly hatched egg, my advice would be to take it inside and make an omelette. MMMM
i went out on the balcony and sore 3 eggs in the corner and i think there pigeon eggs lol but how long is it b4 they hatch please im not sure about this its new my 1st time seeing the eggs
I have come upon two pigeon eggs.. I would like to raise them.. But i have no idea how to keep them warm or anything? please help!
OK, here goes a little info for those who care for our feathered friends. If you come out on your balcony one day and you see (1) egg, just let it be. The second egg won't be laid for about 44 hours and during those first 44 hours between the first egg and the second egg the pigeons don't worry too much about staying on the egg. After the second egg is laid, then the parents will start to sit on the eggs earnestly, the dad during the day and the mom during the night. Also once the second egg is laid, whoever is sitting on the egg will (or should) be very protective of them and possibly bat their wing at you or peck at you. They are just trying to be good parents. Side note: If you saw a single egg and took it inside, the second egg will probably not be laid. You can try to incubate the egg but, if it does hatch you do have a distinct problem of trying to reproduce pigeon milk since they are not self sufficient like a baby chicken is when hatched. The mom and dad will notice that there is no more egg and try to get back to the business of making babies again, so... about another 14 days or so before another set of eggs may be laid. Back to the rest, once the second egg is laid, both should hatch on or about the 18th day. The mom and dad will both take turns feeding the young ones and they should be ready to leave the nest in about 30 days. Homing pigeons (Rock Doves) have been serving man for thousands of years. Good Luck!
