Hi I have one pair of diamond doves but there is some problem when the male comes near to the female then the female fights with the male. Why is the female doing this please help me?

    Are these new doves? I think if the female had a mate somewhere else like at the pet store, maybe she is still thinking she is paired with him... Since they are monogamous. It may take some time. I'm still fairly new to this as well

my mom has two of these sweet little birds, that she takes outside and hangs in a tree every day. The birds love it and other birds have even come to visit them. One day when she brought them in at the end of the day we noticed that the male bird was missing! We were very upset and looked every where for him, not expecting to find him. The next morning while sitting on the deck we hear the little bird calling for his mate, and sure enough there he was sitting in a tree looking very sad. She brought his cage outside and he flew over to it and she carried them back in the house! We never did find out how he got out, or where he spent the night! We all wish that little LB, "little bird", could talk!

    I note your post was in 2006 already but so sadly reminds me of what happened to my little zebra finch as I hanged them on the tree and a Jan Fiskaal got hold of her through the bars of the cage. So please be very carefull when you hang your little birds on trees outside

That is ridiculous. You don't need to get a baby unweaned to have it bond strongly to you. I bought mine at three months old and she loves me to death!! She is very well bonded to me and loves my husband as well. All you need to do is give it love and attention. This is for anybody who is reading this blog that thinks they need to buy an unweaned baby to have a strong bond. Definitely not necessary. I love my baby to death and she loves me!!

We just bought a young female white dove. I have a concern though. Does anyone know if she will become depressed? She has no mate. She is let out of her cage daily for freedom; however, until next month she a a cage that is a bit too small. Can anyone help me with my question? Thanks

    It's hard to gauge what will make a bird depressed. Some species of doves will live in flocks while others won't. White Doves usually live in pairs, but are often alone if they don't yet have a mate.

I saw my lovebirds mate a couple of months back. It was start of summer in Pakistan but than they stop doing it. I was disappointed as really want the see their cute babies. They are feeding each other and getting in and out of nest box regularly but still no eggs. Perhaps it was due to the summer season as temperature goes to 35C plus. Any one help me with situation thanks. Kashif

    Yes, it could be the temperature, or low humidity, or a combination of the two, that is disrupting egg production. It could simply be that they are young. Sometimes new couples need to just try for a while until they get it. Imexperience can also keep them from properly sitting on the eggs with the first clutch.

    Hi kashif, i would suggest you not to expect egg from your bird during summer as this will damage your bird even their babies will be of bad health or can die. The best time to put the nest box or to expect baby from them is between 17th of september till 28th of march as per your country's weather..... Thanks

Hello, I have had two doves for almost half a year, Marilyn and burton. they have had several pairs of eggs , all unsuccessful. well one finally hatched. I just separated her from her parents at roughly 3 weeks cause Marilyn laid another egg. I have been desperately searching on craigslist for another dove, because I don't want to go to the store and separate a pair. But she she seems so lonely and coos so sad. My question is what do you do in the situation where only one egg hatches, how do you go about introducing another dove, and how can you help them get used to you? I just want my baby Marvella (miracle) to be happy and provide her with the best care I possibly can. My doves are my world. Thanks in advance , Hope.

    You should be able to get more diamond doves at a pet store, and usually you don't need to worry about breaking up a pair, because they will most likely have a mixed group for you to choose from. Introducing another dove or two shouldn't be a problem, though it might be best to make sure your baby has a chance to become full sized and totally sustaining himself before introducing him to another.

I have 4 finches, two male and two female. One set very aggressive, had to separate them from the other ones. Now they have laid 5 eggs, all have hatched.
Had to remove male,was picking on mother and babies. They are now about 3 weeks old. Can I leave the mother with them after they are weened? Do I remove the nest when they can take care of themselves?

    Zebra Finch babies will be ready to leave their mother at about 4-6 weeks of age. At 6 weeks it's best to remove the young birds to their own cage.

    Its hard to say why your bird died. They live on average 12 to 14 years and are very hardy. It sounds like your bird may have been sick, because you said you were advised to start an antibiotic treatment. Presumably you told them about, or they saw, physical symptoms that indicated this type of treatment. The best way to get an answer is to have your veterinarian perform an autopsy, yet even that may or may not be conclusive.
