I have had a collared dove since August 2012 when we picked her up from the roadside, she was 2 days old. She is very tame and loves my husband. I'm told our DNA is imprinted on her as we fed her and brought her up. We have just moved house. At our old house she flew in and out and made her nest in the side conservatory. We had her in a pen for a few weeks first. She was in a pen here for a few days and my husband felt sorry for her and let her out. She sat on his shoulder and potted around the garden and came in through the back door. Then she flew out and we haven't seen her since. I'm devastated. She has been gone four days now. Anyone have any suggestions how we find her? Will she try and go home (it's 1 hour away in the car) She wasn't interested in other birds as she thought she was one of us. Am so worried about her.

    I would put a listing in the paper and maybe contact the local shelter. She most likely will not know how to get back to your old home, but also won't be very good at surviving in the wild. It is likely someone will find her and she will stay close to human civilization. I hope you find her, good luck!

Last night we found a small mourning dove, she seems to have no balance, her wings seem fine and she will wrap her feet around our finger. Not sure of age, but she does not seem to have tail feathers. Right now she is eating wild bird seed and will drink water, will she eat bananas? Or dried cranberries? That is all i have right now, will go to pet store and see about some grit and maybe a better feed for her. I also have some lettuce, would that be ok for her?   any help would be greatly appreciated!   thank you tina cooke, conway. Sc

    I don't think bananas are in their usual diet, but it probably won't hurt to try. Dried cranberries probably won't hurt either. Lettuce should be fine. Definitely get a good quality seed mix and grit. Good luck!

Hey! I have 2 diamond doves that have laid eggs and now I have a brother and sister, from the same litter. What happens if they mate? I don't want them to become sexually active in their cage and have the new babies that have birth defects. Is it bad for them to mate, will anything be wrong with their babies? Thank you!

    Generally you do not need to worry about there being birth defects or anything of that nature with birds of the same family mating. I wouldn't worry about it, unless you just simply don't want more birds!

Hello. I'd like to thank you for the wonderful information you've provided! I'm interested in getting a pair of doves, but I first had some questions to which I can't seem to find any answers: Firstly, are Diamond Doves messy? I understand that they eat entire seeds, so there aren't any hulls to scatter about. However, I'd have to house them in a cage within my house, as it's a condo and there's no room for an aviary. Will I have to worry about seeds and excrement flying out of the cage and onto the floor/walls? If so, are there any suggestions for preventing this, such as a small plastic 'wall' around the bottom perimeter of the cage? Secondly, I understand they are social birds, and should be kept in pairs. I'm not certain that I'm ready for the plunge into breeding. Would it be okay to have two of the same gender? If so, would two females or two males be most wise? Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer!

    Thanks for your nice remarks about our site, much appreciated:)



    The Diamond Doves are wonderful birds to keep, and are actually pretty clean compared to other seed eaters. But your idea of a plastic 'wall' around the bottom perimeter can help as well. Although a male/female pair is ideal, they can be kept as same sex pairs to avoid breeding. Getting two males is the best to avoid breeding behaviors.

My female sacred (white) dove laid 2 eggs within the past two days. I was so excited until this evening when I seen that one had fallen to the bottom of the cage and shattered open. I am devastated because I don't know how this could have happened. Can anyone tell me if momma will lay another egg to replace this one that fell so she will still have two to sit on? I have 3 doves in this cage. Two sacred white doves (male and female) and a male ring neck who is the baby daddy cause he is the attentive one to the momma. Is it possible that the other male sacred dove kicked the egg from the nest when momma was taking a break sitting on the egg to stretch her wings?

    It's hard to say what happened to that egg, you would have to observe the birds to actually know. Still, doves can be aggressive during breeding season, as well as somewhat territorial, so it's best to have just a pair in the cage.

Hi, i have 2 diamond doves. One is white in color and the other is sort of bluish. The person at the pet store said they are young and would look like other doves when they grow up. I would like a pair but i am still unable to determine their gender. I dont know their ages. Can someone help me in finding out their ages. And how long will it take to be sure of their genders. By the way i bought them a week ago. :) thanks

    They told you they are 'young' but you'll need to ask the people you got them from for an exact age if you need one.  They can be sexed at about 6 months of age and the 'Breeding/Reproduction' section above provides answers to your questions.

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.
