New dove hen! :D


This is my new dove hen, Adelita (Lita for short.) She's Edmund's new buddy.


Lita preening


She's a bit nervous of the camera yet.


Edmund trying to get her attention.

I'm thinking about letting them have a clutch of babies once in a while when I'm sure I'll be able to sell to responsible people.

So, she's more of a whiteback than a pearled, huh? She was sold as a pearled, but I'm not going to fuss because I really like her regardless.

She is BEAUTIFUL! Yes, I would say she is more of an orange Whiteback than pearled. The only difference really is that the white extends up the back (hence the name ) rather than staying primarily on the wings. I think a lot of people group them together, so I can see why he sold it as pearled.

Yeah, I had a hard time finding really definitive pictures on the internet showing the difference. I'm still not 100% sure Edmund is fawn, either, but I guess that'll show when they have babies, huh?

Blond x Orange will give you half and half in both sexes.
He does look a lot like the blonds on this page:

Plus he has the black/white tail band like they are supposed to.

I figured that I might as well add these to this preexisting thread. They're getting along well, and growing closer with time. I just think it's so cute how they sit with each other and preen each other and everything.






Edmund kept clicking back at the camera lol.

Edmond Looks like a fawn to me... Pearled and Whiteback are basically the same... It is kind of hard to tell by most people.... But they are nice and wonderful looking birds
