My female dove has laid an egg and she is holding her head beneath her body is this normal? She shakes a bit too. I was wondering if maybe she is getting ready to lay another egg. If anyone has info please contact me at weezie48@hotmail.com. Thank You.

    Don't know what the white spot is but if they are on the bottom of the cage there is usually some sort of trouble.  I would place a heating pad on low wrapped in a towel on the bottom of the cage so he can get warmer if he needs to.  You could also put a litght on half the cage with a towle on the bottom.  If he isn't up and around by Monday, I would take him to a vet.  If he is fluffed up and not eating - I'd try and get him to a vet ass soon as possible.  Main thing right now is to make sure he can get to heat if he needs to.

    Feeding carrots can turn a orange one, dark orange but will not turn a yellow orange.  It may darken it but I am not postive.

    You can feed red beets and help to get nice orange color but you have to give some colorants like BOGHINA.
  • viorel moise - 2013-10-25
    Feed your Norwich the same color like BOGHINE, it is a suppliment wich you add to egg food.

Hello, new to this site and could really use some help, I found a beautiful white dove and so sweet by a ditch at a local Walmart. I brought her or him home and have been trying to bond with her...I've gone on different sites to get more knowledge of white doves and give her the proper care. I've tried everything, she won't let me scratch her head she's only coo'd twice or so that I know of, she's very skittish, she shakes if I get too close but also this is not always... She seems to really respond to high pitch talking and she's played with my earring while it was in my hand... She's ate out of my hand etc. I'm not sure and don't want to push her, I've tried to feed her bread and nothing... Idk what I'm doing wrong please help?

    I had the same problem with my female dove but I was just patient and she finally started coming and landing on my shoulder and even now when I go to pet her she shys away but then comes back. Mine just laid her first egg today so I am excited to see what goes from here. I am also new at raising doves I have a male and a female. My male was easier to train. But like I say just be patient and keep trying she will come around.

I have a 6 month old male LSC. He is so sweet and funny, he loves me but bites my husband. When we first brought him home he was fine with both me and my husband. After about a week home my husband was gone on travel for a week, when he got back things were different. Trying to decide whether or not to keep this bird, I have no problem with him, he has bitten me but he gets a time out for that. My husband can pet him but cannot pick him up a lot of the time because he knows he may get bitten. Had a session with a trainer/behaviorist for the biting issues, distraction works pretty well but for my husband it does not work.

We have a white ringneck dove that is about 11 months old. We just found out it was a female when she laid an egg, then 2, 3 and now 4. She has only taken to 1, the last. Will the egg produce a baby seeing she is the only bird with no mate?

    No, the egg will not produce a baby. Your dove must have a mate to fertilize the egg, otherwise it cannot hatch.
  • dot - 2012-01-18
    The eggs have to be fertilized or they will not hatch.
  • Harry Davis - 2013-10-20
    Not usually, the egg has to be fertile to hatch babies. She will have to have a mate for her eggs to be fertile.

Williebird came to live with me about 3 years ago, after one of my best friends died. My life has not been the same since! She is a total chatterbox, which I love, I am mummy, the dog is called by her name, and the cat is called by her name. Intelligence is not enough of a discription about this species. I cannot imagine life without her now, and to think I was scared of birds before she came along! They are a lot of work, they need LOTS of attention, but worth every effort!!!!!

    I have a congo now for 11 years and I can not be with out her. She is my life. I work the midnight shift so I can be with her all day. She is very jealous of girls, so I don't date. I keep her very happy as she does me. If anything happens to her, I don't know what I'll do. I will die. She keeps me going as my significant other passed away about a year ago. I cry just thinking about her. The smartest girl I have ever known, better than some people I know, no joke. Time and care is all they need, oh, lots of love.

I have a dusky conure and we named him coach, he goes by mini coach. We also have a great dog who gets along with mini coach. My husband I love our animals very much and we are dedicated to keep them healthy and go to our trip to our vet annually. Unless, there is something wrong or we notice a change in their behaviour. That being said, we took mini coach to his annual visit. It's been two days since we took him and we notice a big dramatic change in our mini coach :(. He was fluffy and standing on one leg, the same leg. However, he does eat whatever we give him. But he still stands and he has been standing on that one leg. Here and there he'll walk. But he was talking very much today :(. We called the vet and they asked when we came in for the visit, if mini coach got his nails trimmed? And he did..and I did notice that the doctor trimmed his nail a little short that it started to bleed. All I'm hoping for tomorrow is when I wake him up he'll be back to himself if not I am considering to take him back for another check up.
