Re: "Starting with pigeons"

Not to hijack the thread but i have a question about squeekers. We have a book that says to show the squeekers where the food/water are at about 14 days- that is when the parents stop taking care of them. Is this correct? Thanks for any help. Kristi

They peck at that instead of each other and that also keeps them hydrated in cold weather when water freez...
