Hatching Pigeon Eggs

  1. Hi All,
    I am often emailed about finding pigeon eggs.

    hi. i have had what i believe is a pigeon egg for 10 days now. i have been candling it every day since i found it on the lawn. i have kept it warm under a lamp and have watched the bird inside move about and flicker. but the last 2 days i have seen no movement at all. there is an air sack and the bird has grown everyday and now it pretty much fills the egg. but the egg shell is also staring to change colour and go patchy, almost like it is starting to go see-through. is the bird alive or has it died? please help. thank you. Amy

    Any advice about the egg welcome, has anyone hatched pigeons before?

    it sounds like it has died. There's more to incubation than keeping an egg warm I'm afraid.
