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. :]

Hi my name is Kathy. I Have four birds, 2 Budgies and a Diamond Dove. One budgie died because it drowned inside its water bowl. I was so sad, my dad buy me another budgie. A rare type of parakeet. Nice talking to you, Bye!

I fell in love with a pair of Diamonds I saw in a store I frequent. I got them as a christmas present to myself. I love them! The male coos and it is most pleasing compared to the screeching of other birds. They were a young pair and had difficulty figuring out the nesting process. The male trying to keep the nest looking it's best would accidently knock the eggs out and they would break, but they have made up for it. I have nine of their offspring, one being a pure white, hatched the morning after Katrina. Her name is Hope. I really enjoy my Diamonds, listening to them cooing to each other. I keep them in large cages but this spring I plan on building a large aviary for them. Now if someone would just tell the male it's winter and the female needs a break before spring!
