    Hi it's Natalie again! 2 summers ago my Dad, my sister, and I were at Custurd time the ice cream shop. I looked in the window of the building next door and saw 2 doves! We walked in and the lady there told us that someone just took home the 2 dove's baby. Well,the next mourning the lady called us. We came to pick up the dove! It turned out the previous owner was annoyed by Flour's cooing and laughing! Now Fluffy will have a friend! I decided to name him Flour! Flour is so sweet but sometimes he gets sassy. I love him and fluffy so much! I'll be bringing them to school for my Java dove report on Thursday!

I purchased a pair of white doves from a pet shop. I raised pigeons all my life and wanted to try something new. I put the pair in a loft with plenty of room. One day on my way home I notice a large flock of wild pigeons with two white pigeons flying with them. Well, some how..... the door to the loft was open and they were my doves. I was surprised to see them flying with the pigeons and double surprise to see them both coming back to the loft.

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!

    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 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!

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.

I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful web page. I rescued my white dove from a horrible situation in a pet store. Within a week he has become quite content in his new home. He loves to sit on my shoulder and coo softly. I cannot imagine our family without him.

A few years ago, I used a beautiful white dove as a final accent to a clay sculpture presentation of the Christ. With dramatic music, special lighting, fog, etc., a cross was raised behind the life sized sculpture with the dove flying up from behind and landing on the cross just as the lighting faded out. This night, performing in a large civic center, with a very large audience, the dove just "tipped" the cross, (not stopping on the cross) and flew out into the audience. (Something he had never done). After the service, a young lady approached me with a beautiful little baby girl in her arms. She explained that the year before she was delivering twins, of which the baby she was holding, was born, but before the doctors could get the second, the mothers heart artery ruptured, losing the second child during the trama. This lady explained that her heart is still serious, and unrest, worry, and all the feelings of losing her other baby had taken a toll on she and her husband....."Well, the dove singled me out of the very large crowd and gently settled on my shoulder," she said. "A peace has come over me", she added. I apologized and explained that he had never flown into the audience then shared that, "lets know that God has used one of His very beautiful creations to single you out, and let you know that things are going to be alright". She was overwhelmed with the experience and so was I.

As I walked thru my backyard to get the morning paper one white dove flew up from the bushes to the roof. It sat there and was not afraid. I was pleasantly surprised to see it. This is a first for me. I hope it sticks around.
