    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...

    I'm planning on putting my two female doves together, I have them separated at the moment. The original dove in a big cage and the new dove in a small cage but their cages are right next to each other. My original dove is trying to peck at the new dove through her cage. I'm not sure if she is...

    I am trying to figure out the gender of one of my diamond doves. I've attached the photos below. I know #1 is female and #2 is male. I am trying to figure out what gender #3 is. The eye ring on #3 looks like it could be between female or male so I am having a bit of a hard time. I want to say...

    I just recently got a female diamond dove and at the moment I am housing her with my male rock pigeon. The pigeon is definitely much bigger and he is a bit aggressive. The dove has her flight wings and can get away from him but when she tries to fight back, to no avail, she gets pecked by the...

    Hi everyone, I am new to this site but found it very helpful. I am from South Africa and need some information on my cinnamon diamond. He was diagnosed by an avian vet with pmv. However our vets are mainly focussing on money and furry animals. Not so much wing ones. How much seed should he be...
