ok, so my doves (sent by a cancer stricken woman to my rescue) had babies. I was not expecting the eggs to be fertile, but hey they were. I have two babies, Joey and Chandler, one is very big, and by all of my research is growing "normally" and Joey is quite small compared to Chandler.
I read that I can feed them, but I don't know what to feed.
Any help, links with legitimate information and support is very welcome!~

As doves also are seed eaters you can give them the same as parrots. So formula, oat porridge e.t.c depending on his age.

You can feed them baby bird formula, Exact or Kaytee ,, whatever you have, doves can eat from a spoon, if your really experienced,,,tube feed..or a " tube" of glass or plastic,,with vet wrap over the end, with hole, stick the beak into it so they can suck it out,, kinda like mom regurgitating to them..Screenshot_20181206-200555_Gallery.jpg Screenshot_20181206-200555_Gallery.jpg
