This is the story of our first dove that happened in the summer of 2005:

My daughter, packing for her move back into our home, was standing in her kitchen with the kitchen door to her deck open. She looked up just as a white dove landed gently upon the railing of the deck. She was stunned, and just stood there watching it for a whole five minutes, too afraid to move lest she frighten it away. Instead of it being scared off, it just began preening and cooing. So she carefully crept outside, with water and food, and tiptoed over, very slowly. Again instead of being frightened away, it just continued preening and cooing. She stayed frozen in place for another five minutes. Finally, realizing that it was not really frightened of her at all, she crept nearer and just placed her hands over it, gently cupped the sweet bird in her palm, and brought it inside.

My daughter brought it home to me after stopping just long enought to purchase some supplies. My daughters had brought me another bird once, our past favorite, a magpie. That time i had been asking for a baby raven. Magpies are the smallest member of the raven family. Recently i had begun "asking for" (intending) another baby raven, even if it ended up being not exactly a member of the raven family. I knew in my heart that something was on its way, but I had no idea this was what it was--and i am VERY pleased. She is the most tame and sweet-natured bird i have ever had. She insists on attention. She seems to be broody (ready to sit on eggs - i don't know if you're a country girl or not), and loves bits of "people" food, bits of corn, etc., especially when we feed it to her ourselves.

Right after i wrote the above (the day it happened) i went to look again at this beautiful bird. In the space of time that i wrote, she had laid an egg. That was it. I officially named her "Lily". Now, Lily is a free-flying member of our family. I have four more that i purchased from a pet store and have prepared a dovecote for them. I want to encourage the breeding of these birds because of the visual statement they make for love, peace, and beauty.

My daughter has had her parakeets (Budgies) for about 5 yrs. now. She turned 16 and is busy with other things and has lost interest in them, so I brought them into our living room, I didn't realize they don't seem to like each other very much, they are male and female. I bought them a huge flight cage, thinking maybe if they were able to fly around better, they would get along better. They do the kissing thing sometimes and sleep next to each other. I got them some new toys. They seem to love the cage, but they still fuss at each other a lot. I got them a pineapple little house thing, and the female (Juliet) is very possessive with it. She will chase him (Romeo) if he gets near it. I don't want to get rid of one or separate them cuz they've been together 5yrs. Any suggestions? My husband told me to put another parakeet in there with them, I don't want to make things worse?

Hi Ido have my cockatoo that I bought, he seemed to be sick when I first got him. He doesn't talk or eat much and he does have a shortness in breath when he flies a short distance, so I went to robinson animal hospital to get him checked and they gave me bene bac pet gel and baytrill antibiotic. That was 7 days ago and I didn't notice any changes in him so please give me some advice, what might he have a problem with and what I should do? Thanks.

I have 4 ringneck doves. I see them mate all the time, but they haven't laid any eggs for the past two years. I feed them wild bird feed and noticed they eat everything but the milo seed. Could anyone help me find out why my doves don't lay eggs?

I have had my Blue Fronted Amazon parrot since he was born out of his egg. We had his parents and they bred about three times. Jack was the very first born, his siblings are much bigger than him because he is literally a midget, (and I'm not kidding). We gave his siblings and his parents to a woman at a pet store called Bird is The Word in North Aurora, Illinois. He is eight years old and loves to talk, (in his own way because he doesn't speak). I have been teaching him to talk for all of his life, but he's just plain stubborn. He squawks at me for my food every time I am eating, and I think it is adorable every time he does. At first when he hatched from his egg in our kitchen he started to bond with my dad, later on I don't know what happened but now for some reason I am his companion for life. When he doesn't get enough sleep he gets a little moody, but when I come home from school every day he acts like I was going to leave him forever. I love this bird and I would recommend this type of bird to anyone wanting a companion, or a feathered friend that acts a little goofy from time to time.

Hi, I have a Lizard Canary I bought from a Breeder, she has a Crest Top..She is Tan in color. She had a brood of 4, 3 tan and 1 Yellow. The father is also a Lizard and is in the cage with all and some Finches...they are very playful.. she is now sitting on 4 more eggs...the others are the size of her and the male and of course eat on their own for some time. I have a question to ask if I may...HOW OLD WILL THEY BE WHEN YOU FIND OUT WHAT SEX THEY ARE? Love these sooo much...
