PostSubject: Our little surprise!   Fri Feb 12, 2010 7:14 pm



My husband has been helping me take care of the inside birds this winter, well he seems to have missed an egg. This lil' tike hatched yesterday, it's a ringneck dove.

I checked mom & baby tonight and noticed that baby was very cold :eek: so we warmed him/her up in our hands and slipped baby back under mom. I'll be keep'n a watchful eye out just in case mom's not doin' her job.

Very sad I found the baby dove had died during the night.

It's crop was full so the parents were feeding it but I also noticed a large dark purple bruise on the crop. Not sure what this is from... could the parents been too rough while feeding?

I've never seen this on a baby before, not that we had a large amount of babies here to judge from.

I feel bad for not pulling the baby to hand feed, it's so difficult to feed such a tiny baby... I thought mom & dad could care for this baby. Very sad

NiteOwl my hubby says he pulled an egg & replaced it with a dummy, so everytime he felt under the hen he thought he was feeling two dummy eggs. He hates to pick up the hens to check underneath them because they don't like it. Wink


Thanks everyone for your comments.

I'm so sorry the baby died. I know that's hard. I have learned that just feeling under the parents isn't enough. They can be sneaky. LOL. You have to lift them whether they like it or not. Actually, mine don't seem to mind it quite so much any more, as they eventually get used to it. Or at least most of them don't mind so much. Some of them try to take your hand off. Again, I'm really sorry he didn't make it.

Robin - I am very sorry that you lost this little one. Very sad

It might have been that even if the parents had fed the baby they might have realized that something was wrong with the baby, sick or whatever so that they did not warm it any more.

This sounds to me so very much like it happened last year when our little Randy died. He was fed also and then left uncovered in a cold night to die. When I tried to put him back under the mother's belly she got really crazy and pecked at the little one really hard. It seems to be so cruel but I think pigeons have a 6th sense to feel when something is wrong. The bruise might be the result that the mother pecked at it after she had "left" the baby already.

I know this is hard to accept but it serves the other bird's survival when one is sick - it will be eliminated.
