Notes for more efficient pairing
I use the standard breeder mix available at the local poultry supply and add good quality pigeon pellets. The result is great; squeakers are all healthier. Because pigeon pellets easily soften, it helps the pigeon parents feed their young without much effort.

It's a challenge to grow out the squabs to their full, healthy size.
Since the second egg hatches two days after the first, the second squeaker is usually smaller and will eventually have a hard time competing with a bigger and more robust older sibling. Most hobbyists will take out the older squeaker and let the parent feed the smaller one. Once fed, they will bring back the other squeaker. I find this method tedious and time consuming. Instead, I thought of placing the squeakers in two separate nesting pots.
Place them in two separate pots when they are around 12 days old.
