One day riding my bike on the golf green I saw a tiny white bird sitting in the green grass. I was instantly drawn to it and realised it was a white dove. I started to pet it and realised it wasn't trying to fly off. Picking it up I realised its feather were wet and it couldn't really fly. I picked him up and put him in my bike basked and we rode home 3 miles. I was impressed with its ability to sit and ride so quietely without fuss. She has since became my most favored pet and I named her Chmpagne Hope. She rides with me everyday now on the edge of the basket looking around and enjoying the freedom of riding versus flying I'm sure, for which she is still weak. I encourage her to fly around, let her sit in the sun everyday, and don't believe in caging her. So she goes all over the apartment, though she does perch herself next to me every night next to my bed. To look after me I'm sure, as I believe she is my spirit guide. What a beautiful and unexpected blessing!

    Hi. I just wanted to ask you some q since you transpire to have some knowledge in doves. We have these large doves with fluffy neck feathers which i don't know the species or the breed. One problem is that they don't use the perches and are picky on food. Any recommendations? Are they suitable to let free outside for exercise and would still come back? We just acquired them 2 weeks ago. Please help.

Generally when people use the term "white dove" they are referring to a bird that can be used for ceremonial release. We must educate people on this subject. Too many people are releasing domesticated ringneck doves into the wild where they can't survive and they die. A better alternative is one of white homing pigeons referred to as a "Release Dove" or "Release Duv". These birds are bred for their homing ability and return safely home after a release. A "Release Dove" is typically a white racing pigeon that is as big and muscled as a typical racing pigeon. These are bred to race home as quickly as possible. In contrast, a "Release Duv" is not a racing pigeon, but a smaller white pigeon with homing ability, that has been specifically bred for ceremonial release. They tend to be tamer, smaller, and a bit more onamental. They circle well and they return home from long distances, having been crossed with endurance breeds such as the tippler.

    How can you tell the difference? I have been caring for a smaller white bird who was found hurt in my drive by a neighbor. Knowing that I had pigeons, he thought this bird was one of my own. But this bird is much smaller, delicate, and more fearful. I am really trying to figure out what he needs and how to help.

Today we said goodbye to our beautiful white dove Ava. We enjoyed her gentle spirit and soothing cooing for 26 years. Farewell Aca!

    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

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.

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 recently noticed that my ringneck dove's beak is getting long. She is eating but i was wondering if trimming it is possible. If so, what do i use to trim it. Would fingernail clippers be ok.

    I do take mine to a vet who works with birds and she trims my doves beak as his grows as well and he can't eat well with it. If you can't find a vet in the area maybe an avery.

I have two brown ringneck doves and they had two clutches of eggs. Three of them hatched but the other one was rotten. They now have three babies that are growing up fast. Is it okay if they take care of three babies or will it be too much for them.

    They should be fine taking care of three babies. A very important thing for them however, is to make sure they have plenty of water while caring for their young.

I noticed 3 days ago, a beautiful white dove perched on my shed. It has been here since. Every morning I go out and feed it. I first gave it a cornmeal and bread mixture, which it seemed to enjoy. My question is: 1. How do I encourage it to build a nest. 2. How do you identify the male from the female? I have only seen the one. I do not have interest in bringing it indoors ... but I do like the idea of it nesting in my yard. Any suggestions??

    What a pleasant surprise. However, with only one bird there won't be any breeding action. If a friend does show up, see the breeding section in the Dove and Pigeon Care guide, the link to it is at the bottom of the intro section above.
