Pigeons live from 3 to 15 years, depending on environment, and they breed during all seasons. The female lays 1 or 2 eggs. The incubation period is 16-18 days. The young leave the nest at 4 to 6 weeks of age. More eggs are usually laid before the first young are weaned. Simple math will have you head spinning!
Pigeons have decided that they like our house. They can quickly become a nuisance. They like to perch right over our front door. Guess what they leave behind?
Johnny thought of a solution. He placed some wire mesh on the ledge; he used concrete nails to anchor it. So far, it's working!
We like to keep a pretty plant to the right of the door. We've had to throw out our latest because of the pesky pigeon droppings. Now, we can go shopping and make our entrance a welcoming one again.
