Rock Dove Egg
KO-408 $22.00

Commonly known as the 'feral pigeon' or simply 'pigeon,' the rock pigeon has been domesticated for over 3,000 years. Originating in the eastern hemisphere, they are now found worldwide. Bred by fanciers for showing and to be eaten as squab, pigeons are found in a remarkable variety of forms and feathering. Extraordinary birds, they were used for communication during many wars, saving thousands of lives and winning countless medals for bravery under fire. The rock pigeon nests on ledges or holes in dark environments usually 10-30 feet high. Two eggs are laid per nest.

As with all Bone Clones® products, only the finest casting materials are used to cast our North American bird egg series. Our expert artists paint each with meticulous care to match the eggs that were used in the casting process. Each egg is hand painted with permanent dyes and sealed with a resistant coating that makes it ideal for handling, study, teaching, as well as for display. In nature, eggs vary from region to region as well as from bird to bird. The colors and patterns used were determined by the egg used as well as reference material to find a happy medium that would be representative of the species.
