What shall I do, then, with the ones you call pigeon eggs?

April 28, 2007

I noticed today that my balcony pigeons, who’ve won ownership of their home through their unrepentant pooping, have built a nest in the corner and have laid two eggs. I worry about the mess and the parasites the chicks might bring. Still I can’t bring myself to destroy the nest. I’ve got to decide fast – the gestation period is only 18 days (and the eggs may have been here for that long). Votes?
