Get some plastic dummy eggs which you can spilt place 2 maggots as they just keep moving by doing this the pigeons will think the eggs are going to chip

Thats another way Phil

worm in the plastic egg is the easiest way mate, makes them think the younguns ready to hatch.

yous put worms and maggots in plastic eggs to make the birds think that chicks are pipping. Shocked you are having a laugh guys.how can you honestly prove that putting a worm in a plastic egg actually makes a bird fly home faster.a bit stupid if you ask me.

Geordiejen it does work as the pigeons feel the knocking within the egg just like a youngster chipping

hi geordiejen, as far as i know its to simulate the egg hatching so the parents think the yb is about to hatch therefore making their parental instincts encourage them to fly home faster.....

hope this helps......... Very Happy
