Cowgirl's Avatar Is that a potential baby brother or sister I see too???

Faith's Avatar No Cowgirl, that egg won't hatch now, but they havent rejected it, so I am letting them keep it, unless it cracks. The baby, in the early days, needs it to lean on!!!

Fennie's Avatar How do squabs, or any other young birds, stay warm without feathers? But all very sweet.

Faith's Avatar He has a few little feathers, and obviously it is warm weather at the moment. The parent birds cover chicks until they can thermo-regulate. Happy and Jose don't sit on Pearl all the time now, like they did when he/she was littler.

CalicoKate's Avatar How does something so pretty start off so ugly?! Sweet but not things of beauty when small, not like chicks (of the hen variety!)
When we dropped the dogs off at kennels on our way away there were some young doves nestled in the pebbles on the drive. Although pretty much the same size as the adults I recognised the slightly too large for their faces beaks that I've seen on your blog Faith Very Happy

Salle de Bain's Avatar Lovely picture...feathers look kind of peachy that just the shot, or do they start off a different colour?

Am reading a book on dovecotes as we speak!
