    I have 4 doves (2 white, 2 ringneck) and 1 large adopted pigeon together. I know the Pigeon is male and he courts two doves. He is now sitting on two eggs in one box and sometimes feeds a week old chick in the box next to him. They are all together in the aviary part of my chicken coop.

    Anyone know if they can cross-breed or do i just have a Fatherly Pigeon?

    Possibly. The common everyday birds we call "Pigeons" are just the domesticated form of the wild "Rock Dove".

    I'm pretty sure they can.
    Both birds are vary similar.
    So, why not?
