Hey, I have 2 pairs of diamond doves in an aviary with 2 pairs of zebra's and a pair of lutino cockatiels. I have bred a pair of diamonds before and had a hen chick, but then not long after the cock was attacked by a rat and died. But yesterday I bought 2 new cocks, so hopefully this season I'll get some more chicks. I'll let you know! byebye, Locky

I have two diamond doves that I got from my grammy. They had eggs before while my grammy had them, but the eggs fell and cracked. Now they have two more eggs and one of them is cracked. I'm pretty sure it's dead and the other one just sits in the nest. I haven't seen the birds on them in about 2 days. Is this normal? because i'd like to see the egg hatch. :]

I had this ringneck dove and it got let out of its cage and flew away. 3 days later I was climbing a tree out in the front of our house and this ringneck dove flies right next to me and sits on the branch. I caught it and returned it to its home.

Dudley arrived last year in our garden. He fell at my husband's feet exhausted on one of the few warm days we had in Scotland in 2007. We fell in love with this little white feathered creature right away.
We have no idea where he came from, his age, his gender or anything else about "him" but he now lives in our conservatory and apart from not caring where he leaves his droppings, which can be annoying, he is accepted as "one of the family". He is cheeky, funny, arrogant, and demanding most times and he hates being touched, but we don't care as he is happy in his own little way. Occasionally we can get a little stroke of his tail if he is in a receptive mood. Our only regret is that he wistfully looks out the window at other wild birds and we can't let him out "to play" with them. He is thriving and is rather spoilt in many ways. Especially with his own special plant to nest in and a daily shower of slightly warm water to help his cleaning & preening.
When I take my lunch into the conservatory, He comes down to the floor and loves to get some crumbs thrown down to peck on just like his "relative" the pigeon and the birds outside.
We would be lost without this little bird who left us with no option but to adopt him that day last year.
We used his photo to make our Xmas Cards last year. OK you'll probably think we're nutty, but we don't care:-))

I have a real sweetheart ring neck - we call him Harold. He came to us about 1 year ago with an injury under his wing. My husband and I have quite a variety of pets (parakeets, squirrel, rabbits, turtles, cockerel, etc) and they all get along well with Harold. Harold is quite loving, he doesn't like being alone for long ( we leave the tv on for his company). He lives in our bedroom which opens to our yard where the other 'creatures' live - so he moves freely in and out. Today my husband bought him a wife and I am so excited to meet her, she is with egg already! This will be totally new to us. We are located in Trinidad, and first no one seemed to know what kind of dove he was. I got all the info online about him, then we found a pet store that has varieties of doves and ring necks. Sabrina & Antonio

When a white dove flies to your arm for food on a New York City roof, it sort of gets your attention!
I'd recently lost my German pointer of 17 years, "Lucy," and was wondering what breed of dog I might have next. One morning last Spring, I noticed this gorgeous white "pigeon" hanging around with a "possi" of 3 grey pigeons and one mourning dove. I fed this crew on my roofdeck every day. She began to wait for me by my window every morning for breakfast until one day, clearly impatient, she flew straight to my arm before I filled the feeder.
Well, this was no ordinary pigeon! (So I thought....) When she didn't even flinch when my dogs came near her, it was time to research this exceptional creature. So, after a thorough educational sojourn via my cellphone camera and the web,(and, after making certain there was no "Mr. Dove" lurking in her shadow,) I knew she would not make it through a NYC winter and "Banshee" joined my entourage of one pug, one chihuahua, and now, one beautiful, smart and excessively affectionate white ringneck dove. What a perfect pet! Who knew????

I live in upper Indiana and have seen about 50 Tangarine Doves taking shelter in an abandon house next door to me. I have been feeding them and enjoying watching them. They are beautiful birds. I am afraid that with all the urban development going on they might be in harms way. I am trying different things to get them comfortabel with us and get them contained to my property in some kind of housing. I would really hate to see something happen to these guys! We have babies and adults. Too cool!

They make great pets for anyone wanting something more exotic than a parakeet. They aren't peaceful at all--they make a loud but nice cooing. It depends on which you get, many are sweet, and others (like mine) are unusually aggressive. The unusually aggressive may growl and bite, but it doesn't hurt and they can be trained not to do so.

I highly reccommend Ringnecks for people who want an interesting companion. They can be very clingy, as mine only bonded with me.

Wow! Great information! Thanks for helping me a lot, because my teacher wanted us to find information of doves on my project and my friend ask me to go this website and find it, so it really helps. Thanks a lot!
