what Tree are you saying that they are homely giggle1
no this is not the first time we have had baby doves, it is the first time that these 2 have had babies make it this far
the parents both feed and set on the babies, we do not unless something should happen to them

Oh, I'm sorry you lost one Anna. I will say a little prayer for it to become one of heaven's most precious doves.

Dang...that's terrible luck. Have these parents ever been parent's before together with a surviving chick?

I might be able to help you not loose any more babies. I use to raise Dove years ago, if I can remember how I did it.
May I ask how you have the cage set up with nest and all and may I ask what you're feeding the parents?

k well first off they would not use anything to nest in and nested on the floor of thier cage, we tried sevearl diff things too some things we tried were a pie plate, a fresbie, a big ice cream tub cut in half so it was'nt to tall, all kinds of things, right now we have one of those litter pans that are for ferrets that clip to the side of the cage and go in a corner, they are actulley looking at it so I think they might be getting ready to lay eggs
we gave them dove food that we got from the feed mill, scratch once in a while as a treat, and we also give friuts and veggies(but they rarely eat any of the latter), when they had the babies we tried giving them some cooked egg yolks but again they did'nt touch em and put vitamins for birds in thier water we got them as adults so I have no idea how they were cared for before they got to us.
We now have switched to another male dove cause the girl was starting to beat up on the lil boy we had in with her. they are in a pretty big cage its gotta stand at least 2-3 ft high and at least that long it's not to wide though, but it was free so we are not complaining to much

OK. One thing I can tell you is that my Doves loved to nest in a little water crock like what you use for cats or rabbits. We just put hay or even feed in it and they would nest in that. If they lay eggs on the floor, move them to the crock.

On feeding, it sounds OK. We use to give a food we would get that was like a powder called egg food. It's really good for parents feeding babies and also spray millet.

If there's anything else, I'll post it. LOL It's been years since I've had Dove and I'm trying to remember. LOL Years and 6 kids later and I don't remember much.

You might also try giving them some popcorn kernels and when they do have babies, you might offer them some live food like meal worms or something soft that they can feed the babies. Also some grit for them.
