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?

    Tina, I have a white dove that laid an egg tonight, If you have found an answer please email me, as I have the same problem.

    I have a gorgeous white dove named Darryl we thought she was male until she started laying.
    Apparently all female birds including chickens lay but need males to fertilize the eggs, so no they don't have chicks in them unless there is a male.

    Well, it means she's ready for a mate, if you don't have one for her yet:-)

I think doves make wonderful pets. I was in a fast food parking lot and saw a blue jay attacking a young dove. I shooed the blue jay away and picked up the dove, got an empty box from some delivery men and carried it home. His (or her, not really sure) neck was bloody where he was attacked, so I cleaned it and applied some antibiotic ointment and fed him. I intended to keep him only long enough to get him well and would release him in the house daily to allow him to exercise. When I tried to release him a couple of weeks later, he wouldn't leave, just sat on a branch at my eye level looking at me. I kept him for a number of years before he passed, he was incredibly tame and would perch on a head, arm, shoulder, even ride on a remote control truck. He was very gentle and had a beautifully soothing coo.

    Just as well that he would not leave. Releasing doves into the wild, results in death almost every time. They are prey animals to every predator out there, as the blue jay demonstrated clearly.

My white dove crash landed into banana trees in my back yard in the Dominican Republic. It was completely exhausted. I put it in a box and gave it mixed chicken feed and water. It ate and drank a lot. I then built a big cage that I mounted behind the house in a flower garden. My dove almost seems to be smiling when ever I talk to it.
How can you tell the sex? I would like to find a mate for it.

Hi! 3 Days ago I believe that a small dove showed up at our home. I had put a bird feeder out and it was happily eating. We have been giving it fresh water every day and it has been more than happy to hang out in our trees. We called our local fish and game to let them know it was here and that it also has a yellow cuff on its leg. They took my number and said as long as it's not bothering us then no big deal. I hope he sticks around! He or she won't let me ketch it but it likes it when I talk to it and stay about a foot or two away! I wonder if he/she came from a wedding or funeral dove release? If anyone has any ideas about where he/she may have come from or more info on how to take care of him or her. Please let me know by e-mail. Thanks!!

Wow, it's really a great website indeed. I have also got white doves and they have recently laid eggs and I am very anxious to see the young ones. I got a lot of information from this site about how to take care of these fellows. Thanks a lot to those who have made this site.

    Wow, that's exciting. I have just got two white doves today for the first time. They are about 8 weeks I think( just left nest, all feathered obviously) . What age did yours start laying eggs?

We have noticed a beautiful single white dove in a nearby tree. It has been there for 3 days so far. It tilts its head when we coo, but makes no sound. It doesn't appear to be injured in any way. From what we've read, these birds are domestic and we worry that it can't survive in the wild. Can this bird survive in the wild? Can anyone tell us what we can do to care for and feed it? Is there any way to entice it to come down out of the tree? We would like to adopt it and care for it.

    We have a similar bird next door. It has been sitting on our neighbor's window sill for quite some time. Can we help it in any way?
