Customers always ask us, “Why don’t I ever see a baby pigeon?”. In this picture are 2 young pigeons also known as squab, they are approximately 3 weeks old. Pigeons grow to a very large size in the nest before they are fledged and able to fly. They are fed by their parents in the nest until they are four weeks old. Even after the young pigeons have left the nest they will forage and return to the same spot to nest and eventually breed. So, the reason you don’t see a baby pigeon is because they don’t leave the nest until they are almost ready to fly.
