    Need help on my little Diamond Dove, Nova! Yesterday I saw him twisting his neck and falling over, first thing that came to my mind was paramyxovirus but that wouldn’t have happened suddenly right? Unless I was blind to the symptoms. I’m not sure what happened for him to be like this, my mum...

    Hi, My Diamond Dove has been going through a bit of a moult this past week and she has a wing feather that’s fully detached but stuck in her wing. She’s clearly irritated by it and it seems to be easy to remove from a glance but when i’ve tried lightly tugging the feather it won’t budge. I...

    Hello, Today I was lucky enough to adopt a little Diamond Dove! I am unsure about age and gender (i’m thinking it may be a female) but it is apparently aviary bred so not tame at all! Seeming I just brought her home today I understand she needs time to adjust to surroundings etc. She is...

    Hi everyone, I'm the owner of a sassy diamond dove. She has some health issues but since October she's been doing very well. I noticed that she has a growth at the top of her beak, brought it up to the vet and she just said she might have a calcium deficiency because the area is soft. Now...

    Hello all, I have two diamond doves and I wanted to have one or two more but I was told my current ones were a male and female pair however the rings around their eyes don’t seem to dictate that? either way what genders would anyone recommend to try and introduce to them? (Image was from their...

    Hi! I have had my diamond dove for 7 years. I’m not sure how old he was when I bought him maybe a year old but in the last week he has been displaying some alarming behavior. He was healthy up until two months ago. He seems to have neck spasms and his feathers have been puffed in the last week...

    I know larger pigeons and doves like water baths, but my diamond doves have shown no interest in an dishes of water I give them. Would they prefer a dust bath?

    Hi, I'm a relatively new diamond dove owner whose only had diamond doves for 2 years or so. Back in April I got a lovely female diamond dove as a mate for my male and she is great, just this morning their first baby hatched! I haven't noticed any strange behavior or obvious signs of illness...

    I got a pair of diamond doves about a week ago and they've been settling in well. However, they've been making an odd sound, almost like a frog croak. This is my first time keeping birds so I thought it was just a noise they make, but I'm starting to get concerned. Usually their coos sound...

    Hello! A few days ago, we purchased a female diamond dove to pair with our male dove. She has been in a cage by herself, and she has yet to interact with him. However, she seems to behaving strangely. I am not sure if it is just her personality or if something is wrong with her. She seems to...

    Hi! One of my diamond doves is not doing very well lately. She is stell eating and seems to be relatively stable. She never was very active but nowadays she only sits on the ground and I noticed that she kept opening and closing her beak. I wondered if anyone knows what this means? Is she...

    For the past few days, my diamond dove has has been on and off shivering/shaking while puffed up, breathing hard to where the chest beats, and just yesterday was so wobbly he kept having to catch himself from falling off his perch. He has also had watery poops, and his coos have changed, along...

    Hello, everyone! I am a new user and I'm here because I have a pair of questions about diamond doves I was hoping you could answer. I currently own three budgerigars (small parakeets) and, even if I'm not planning to buy other birds for now, I am doing some research in case I had the chance to...

    Hello all, This is my first post here and also my first time around with birds in the dove/pigeon family. I have been keeping canaries and finches for about 3 years now and have always wanted diamond doves due to their small size and good temperaments. When I saw them for sale at a local bird...

    Hello! I've recently got a male Diamond Dove. I wasn't informed about his age, my friend got it from a pet store. Although I'm very happy with him I've encountered quite a big problem - once a month I NEED to go home and back to the city I currently study at (250 km by train ~ 3,5h). So either I...

    Hello all I am Scratchy! (if there is an intro sub-forum on here then I could move it accordingly, although I saw none) I am the proud friends of a white shepherd and 11 chickens. I have always wanted a bird as a pet though. (yeah chickens are birds, but I mean a house bird.) I've owned a canary...

    Hello! I have an adopted diamond dove that came with some disabilities (crossed wings, missing a toe). For the last couple of months, she has been doing this very odd neck stretching/mouth movement without any sound. I didn't address it initially because she was laying eggs with her...

    I noticed some very large poops yesterday from my diamond dove. They were 3x the size of her normal poop. I checked her nest and her posterior to see if she was getting ready for eggs but I didn't find anything. Today her poop was watery, like, very watery. There were a few bits of undigested...

    Recently I've noticed one of my diamond doves has a "humpback" and her wings don't fold behind her back anymore. She can still fly and she is eating daily. Is she obese? My other dove was obese earlier this year but it was due to eating too much millets. I stopped giving them millets for a few...
