I found a Zenaida Dove close to my driveway with some of its feathers and skin off and saw some part of its inside body. It was sooooooooooooooooooooo cute! She is at C.R.O.W. now. I named her Kizzy because it means stay put in Mandinka.

I recently got a white dove for Easter and I've noticed that she coos all the time. Is this normal? I'm a little worried that she's lonely or scared by herself, as she was kept in a cage with lots of other doves at the pet shop. Or is this just the normal adjustment to a new house? Thanks!

    Yes, it is normal for doves to coo regularly. They actually have a few (I think its about 7) different types of 'coo's' in their language!

There was a dove nest in my front yard, one of the babies was on the ground, what should I do? (put it back to the nest or leave it alone)

    Put it back in the nest. We found a nest on the ground with two babies. A cat got at it and shred the nest and just about killed one. We put both babies and nest in a box and wedged into the tree. The mother came back and one baby survived and is now almost full grown and lives in my back yard with it's mom. They have outgrown the box but without it they both would have died. We love seeing them everyday!

hi, I bought a pair of doves that look like a crow but the difference is, its colors are dark green with a yellow at the edge of its wings. Their feet were bigger than the usual pigeon and are color red. The breeder said that it is a seven color chinese dove but I couldn't search it on the internet. I'm thinking that it is not a chinese or chine dove. so, I wonder if you know the breed of my doves. I can send you their pictures so you can see them. thanks a lot.

(Editor's note: you can upload the pictures here

How long does it usually take for a white dove to adjust to its new home cause im in disbelief that he will be happy?

    The bird will feel much more comfortable and trusting in his surroundings, if they are in a corner where two sides are wall. That makes them feel more secure and sheltered.

Hi, I have two pet white doves and my female has layed six eggs. I don't know why she has laid this many in a week and a half time period... does anyone know if this is normal?

    Sounds like you might have two females and both are laying the eggs. After all, females don't need a male in order to lay eggs. If this is the case, they will not hatch as they haven't been fertilized.

I also have ring neck pigeons but the rings are colored black. I was told that it is a spanish pigeon, I really don't know because I have not any spanish pigeons. Besides, we have native pigeons here in the phils, which are smaller than your ring necks, about 6inches from head to tail. The males have a gray head, and the boy is colored like rusty brown while females have brown head and body. I hope I can send some pictures so that they can be identified clearly.

I have had two white doves for 19 years. About 6 weeks ago, one of them (thr male)was attacked by either a hawk or an owl (I saw the large bird the night it happened...on the deck near where my birds reside in a large cage.) As a result, my dove died a few days later. Sad. Luckily, I located a lady who was willing to give me another bird to replace mine. He is residing happily in his new home with my much older female. Needless to say, I have repositioned the cage and I cover it every night!

I just found a mourning dove by our driveway, missing an entire wing! Took her to my vet and she seems healthy otherwise. Currently she is in a birdcage, is pecking at seed. I have a pet pigeon, hopefully can put their cages side by side and introduce them. Any suggestions/comments/advice is appreciated!

Hi, I just receive a pair of white doves and I need to know how to take care of them and what type of food do I need to provide and how can I make a connection with them. What do I need to know so that they are comfortable with me, how to have a relationship with them, and what r some of the things they like to do. What kind of cage and toys should I get. Now I don't know nothing about white doves, please help me. Should I talk to them always and when do I know that they are comfortable with me. I just got them as a gift and they r so beautiful and I love them already. I need all information on how to take care of them and anything else that I may need to know. Do they like toys, what type of food, what kind of cage, need advise and help.
