What about the temperature, I heard that it has to be from 70-80degrees. Does it really have to be that hot?

    I have a dove aviary outside. It is enclosed on three sides with a sliding glass door in the front. I live at 3,500 feet. The breeder I bought from said they were cold hardy. We have had snow here for weeks and nights and the inside of the aviary get to just under 30 degrees. The doves are thriving! When it gets to 30 degrees I do have a brooder light in the rafters they can snuggle against, but they are fine without it too. I use it mostly when squabs are just out of the nest and sit in the rafters.

We had a dove (possibly a homing pidgeon as it was larger) hanging around our house so we started feeding him and made him a bed out the back, he came inside whenever we were home and always wanted to be close to us. (he became part of the family) He was with us for around 8 months but I was so upset to find when I got home from work last night he had flown away and hasn't returned yet:( I'm worried about him and hate the thought that anything might happen to him. Just wondered if anyone might know if he might return and how long it might take him? Or even any suggestions as to why he might have left in the first place, as he seemed so happy where he was? Any comments appreciated, I've never had any birds as pets before but I really miss Pidgy :'(

We found Ginger 3 years ago with a broken wing from a bullet. My son and I brought her to many places around town and none would treat her. They all told us to euthanize her. When I explained the word to my son he was devastated. The look on his face broke my heart, so I told him I would call our vet. This wonderful man cleaned and taped her wing down to heal, and sent us on our way with antibiotics and a return appointment for the following week. When we arrived, he had a look of pure amazement on his face! It seems that he had given Ginger less than a 20% chance of surviving that week. Not only had she survived, but she was "a whole new bird". She wasn't expected to be able to fly again. She can for short distances. We communicate with each other with coos, bell ringing (you should see her go), and a few other sounds she makes (I can't describe). At times she will stand at the door of her cage face to face with me and we'll make noises back and forth and have a real conversation! I am glad I invested the time and money in healing this beautiful bird. I thank God for our talented vet and our discussion about all God's creatures deserving a chance!

    It is worth it-I had my mourning dove 13 years. She had few feathers as a baby and was about to be the neighbors cats breakfest. She was always the sweetest thing.

I have just been given a white dove and he is the most affectionate, soppy little thing I've ever had, better than all the other birds I've owned! He fell asleep on my shoulder earlier, all snuggled in against my neck! I would recommend doves as pets to anyone!

    Hi these doves do better as single pairs in longer rather than high cage and a bit of privacy.

I was very surprised to see my OGO's pictured on your site. The Old German Owl is a gentle or somewhat tame pigeon. I still raise the Tail Marked variety of Owl's, along with my Valencian Figurita's & Barb's. If not for my love of these birds, retirement wouldn't be much fun. In my 70's & still enjoying my hobby to the fullest. Doug Smith of Dr2Lofts in TN. USA.

    Do Old German Owls actually Roll In The air or are they Just exciting Flyers? Love The Look! I currently have A Loft Of Rollers and another with Homers! Thank You for letting us enjoy your OGO's! Peace, Mike ( Fridley , Mn )

    To: Lynn Smith: We live in Manhattan, NY. For the past 4 weeks we have enjoyed the company of a smallish fawn dove. It is getting close to winter and I want to put out some type of winter habitat for her. We are in a high rise, 19th floor, and I would like to put some type of winter house for her, against the building (warmer), and provide for seeds and water. Any suggestions as to type of cote, house, etc? Thanks for any help.

    How did you make out in Santa Fe?
