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!

My pair of doves are wonderful. They are my first pair and they now have a nest with two very healthy squabs. I love all the sounds they make and their overall temperament. My two, Jove and Sophie, are free roaming in a room that is just for them. Doves are the best, I don't think I'll ever be without them again!

They are not quiet, but are really sweet. I know this becuse I once owned two. Sometimes they won't shut up!

Pie is with us 10 years . He once was rescued from a stray cat I brought home by my dog and they are best buds since then. I gave him to a pet store when I was pregnant with my first but was so depressed that I took him back. He will ride on my Golden"s back, sing along with the television or stereo, laugh at you if he finds you amusing and crow like a rooster every morning. My husband stopped trying to get him to be quiet because Pie loves a challenge...and we love him...by the way. He is actually a she, Pie layed an egg one New years Eve. But when I explained to my daughters that he was actually a girl, my eldest who was 4 asked if this meant she would turn into a boy, hence we went back to "he".

Hello, Everything I read about ringneck doves tell me that they dont live in the wild, but they live in the wild here in Tuscumbia Alabama. I have homing pigeons and sometimes ringneck doves visit and eat the scrap seeds that my pigeons spill. Also mourning doves visit too. The ringnecks are much larger than the mourning doves. I watch them at a very close distance with binoculars and can see the black markings on their necks. Maybe someone let some escape sometime in the past here in Tuscumbia but now I have seen them all over town. Tuscumbia is the birthplace of Helen Keller and I have seen the ringneck doves there at this historical site also. Just thought I would pass along this little bit of info to those who like ringneck doves. Maybe you can come visit this historical deep south town and possibily see some ringneck doves too! Also this area is rich with American Indian History if you are interested. Thanks, Danny DeLano

I have a special Dove named Ragamuffin. When a baby he was a runt. The dogs got him out of his cage and torn his neck, then he broke his wing. I took him into the house and cared for him. He stayed in all winter long. Now he is outside with the rest of our doves and now he currently has a mate named Sweetheart and two little white eggs.

I have a male Ringneck Dove I call Lovey, who appeared in my backyard as a stray in 1988. I caught him and took him in when some cats started going after him. I don't know how old he was at the time, but I know he's at least 19 now, and still going strong! He's a very sweet bird, and has been easy to care for.

You know, I never thought I'd fall in love with a bird...let alone a white dove. But this little thing has done nothing more than stolen my heart. I just found out that she is a girl (after a year of not knowing for sure), because she laid an egg in my hair! WOW!!! What a trip! She likes to fly around and get into stuff; make lots of noise. I call her Sweetie Pie, a fitting name for my little "Terror-dactil". What a love, there's nothing like it.
