Hi,

I just wondered if anyone could tell me if Siblings ever pair up if left together?

Thanks

Janet

Thanks for that Charis.

I'm having the hardest time deciding whether to re-home my Oops babies as they're so gorgeous. It's actually getting me down as I keep changing my mind every time I see them.
It would be so easy to keep them but as I probably can't give them a home for life I feel I should let them go while they have the offer of a good home.

So the reason I asked was they would just be living with another two birds in an aviary and they have been together a while.
I'd feel so bad if I was homing them just for my peace of mind but then not giving them the opportunity to do what most birds long to do.. :Yes: and have a mate.

Mind you I still don't know what sex they are so can't be sure what will happen if they do go.

They still hang around together most of the time so hopefully would settle ok as long as they go together.

This is so hard, I just want to feel it's the best thing for them and then it wouldn't be so bad.

That is hard, Janet. You just need to go with your gut on this and you won't make the wrong decision.

I know what you mean, I think I've mulled it over almost too much and am finding it hard to decifer what my gut feeling really is.
There's a practical head decision and a heart one. The heart one is just the less painful option, for me anyway but maybe not in their best interests long term.
I think it's just making the decision that's causing me grief.

Those pictures of the sibling pairs are gorgeous. At least I can stop worrying about that aspect now. Embarassed

I agree they do and will easily pair up alot more then one would think , if it makes it easier on you think about it this way... pigeons are very easy, they adapt to just about everything the world has thrown at them so like them you should go with their flow and let them tell you what they want and you wont go wrong Great job
