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

Hi, I need some help, My diamond doves are so sweet, but I don't think they know how to take care of the eggs that they are having. So far it has been four, and it looks as though she drops them from the perch. Most of the time, they have a little hole in there. One was perfect, then about a half hour later, there was an indent/sm hole. I have tried to make them a nest with different things, newpapers, nesting hair, etc. and I tried to put the female one it and nothing helps. Should I just let it go??

    Hi, I have a pair of diamond doves too and at first they had the same issue, so I figured it out, mine like to use the large food dish that hooks on the cage and they also like things like mallett and timothy hay for there nesting materials, try tha tand put the nesting materials on the floor of the cage and also some in the big food dish, I buy their big food dish at petsmart, then put the eggs in the dish, put the dish up by the top perch they seem to like it up high, mine never nest on the bottom, mine love this it really works great. Good luck, hope you get healthy happy babies. Feel free to ask me if you need any more help.

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. :]
