Chris Steele, Linton, UK Little pigeons have never been seen because all the little queers are asbo sick and can't get out of their nests until they reach maturity. Another reason scientists suggest that we don't often see baby pigeons is that they don't build their nests in traditional places. In general, we will never see a real pigeon's nest and, in turn, we will never see pigeon chicks. The reason we don't see pigeon chicks is because the chicks stay in the nest for over 40 days, which is twice as long as most garden birds.
Not only do we not see the pigeon cubs, but the cubs of ordinary garden birds are hidden from view until they are ready to take off. We don't see enough small newborn pigeons because these little pigeons stay in their nests away from the cities, mostly on the rocks and in the mountains. Probably some of the pigeons you see sitting on the muddy ledge are big chicks that haven't yet flown and left the nest. Pigeons do not fly away (leave the nest) until they reach adult size, and those who do not know what to look for cannot distinguish a dove from an adult.
In general, pigeons are adults and look like an adult pigeon before flying out of the nest. When young rock doves finally leave the nest, they are life-sized with adult feathers resembling their parents. Larger pigeon chicks are large enough to fly and leave the nest 4-5 weeks after hatching. Larger pigeons are fed grain and other adult foods brought by their parents.
In the first four days after hatching, the collected milk is regurgitated to the dovecotes. After that, they will continuously feed on the collected milk along with the seeds for the next 5 days. Adults return to the nursery to feed the children, collecting milk, seeds, or any part of the diet, which they eat 3 to 4 times a day. Because hatched pigeons spend more time in the nest than any other bird (40 days), feeding on their parents' milk (sort of), and because they are still young when they leave the nest (although they are almost fully grown), you see little (or young) pigeons.
Pigeons spend more time building their nests than other birds, so the chances of seeing a pigeon that still looks like a baby are very low. After 40 days or more in the nest, the youngsters no longer look like newborns. While speculation is fun, the truth is that, like any other bird, pigeons start their journey in infancy. People in the town usually think of pigeons as squirrels, but it turns out that birds are usually good parents.
Wild pigeons thrive in the city, which provides man-made rock formations in the form of tall buildings, as well as ample food. Common urban pigeons, known as rock pigeons, build common urban pigeon nests in the nooks and crannies of concrete urban landscapes, reminiscent of their native cliff-top habitats in Europe and the Middle East. Pigeons, also known as rock pigeons, build their nests in caves and rocks that are thought to mimic the Mediterranean caves and rocks they once inhabited. Window sills, roofs and scaffolding replaced wild pigeons.
One reason is that pigeons are extremely cautious when it comes to their breeding habits, preferring to nest on rocks or other high places. Pigeons are large birds and the shortage of their young may be most noticeable in their large flocks due to their wide distribution or size.
Generally, you will never see a baby in this condition unless you are raising pigeons indoors or you stumble upon a pigeon den; however, this is unlikely as pigeons tend to be in high, secluded places place to nest. If you haven't caught pigeon chicks on the roof of a building for only 25 to 32 days, you're unlikely to see them. This sound logic explains why you can never see pigeon nests, eggs or babies.
When a pigeon builds its nest, it does so in a place that will be safe and warm for its chicks. If you cannot find a nest, and even if both parents are nearby, you need to go to a wildlife rescue center that can take care of the pigeon.
Opponents might argue that one of them is more of a teenager than a child, but judging by the softness of his feathers, he is definitely not an adult pigeon. A newborn pigeon looks almost like an alien, with its pinkish-brown skin, pink beak, and down, which can be yellow or white, which turns into feathers over time.
The pigeon's neck is still not bright green, and its whiskers are still pink on the beak instead of the white of an adult pigeon. By then, the lovebirds will have feathered and grown to nearly the same size as adults, so it's hard to spot baby pigeons among the busy squabbling birds.
