I had an experience where I found a baby mourning dove with no parents and was being eaten alive by ants. I took him in and hand fed and cared for him like a baby... Did lots of research....and after he was able to fly, I set him free (of course gradually).......he came back everyday at 3:30pm for seeds till he found a mate...(which he brought for me to see)....and then he never came back.....
Truly was the most amazing thing I ever experienced. He would wait in the oak tree outside my door and would fly down when I opened the door at 3:30pm and come inside to eat...then leave again.
Anyway, just wanted to share my experience.
Hope the babies survive. Regardless of their sloppy nestbuilding skills, they are so smart and simply beautiful.

doves are hopeless nest builders---
so it apears. Their nests may look flimsy and a mess but
naturally prove strong and efficent.
it is natural for 2 chicks to become crowded as thats is what makes doves fledge in the fist place.
handraising doves is very heard. Seeing pigeon milk is only a natural substance and can't be copied. But it may be substituted. Chicks are also very weak and can be quite stubborn when feeding comes not excepting foods.
