The birds tend to pair with others hatched in the same year. Familiarity with the potential mate counts in its favor. Due to certain demographic characteristics, mates of the same age on average share fewer genes than random pairs, and produce less inbred young. After courtship the pair builds a nest. Forked sticks longer than 12 inches are the preferred material. Shorter sticks and vegetation are concentrated in the top of the nest. Wide variations in stick preferences are evident. Although the Nicobars defend their nests throughout nesting, threats are more likely to be given while building. Other species are usually tolerated; most threats are directed towards Nicobars. This may function to protect sticks from being stolen. Both male and the female incubate the egg and rear the chick. Behavioral development does not seem related to physical size. Very little is known about the Nicobar pigeion either in captivity or in its natural habitat
