    Hello! A few weeks back we got a male diamond dove (thicker eye ring, no brown, bow coos). A few days ago, we got a female for him (we are 100% sure) When we first introduced them, the male instantly started bow cooing and performing his mating dance, but the female just ignored him. Now, he...

    Hello, I apologize if this is silly and too many questions, but I am a new bird owner and despite frantic searching, I have come across too much conflicting information to rely solely on searches. I adopted a diamond dove(named Yonah) from a foster service; he previously had two cage mates who...

    I have read up a lot on raising diamond doves in the past few months and contacted my avian vet with this question but have not found a good explanation why this is happening. I have two pairs of diamond doves in separate cages. One pair has had three sets of eggs so far. The first pair hatched...

    Hello - I'm new to this forum but hoping for some information/direction.... I had a male diamond dove for 5 years. His male cage mate passed away in August. I purchased two female diamond doves and one male from a breeder. While quarantining the new birds, the new male paired off with one of...

    My pet diamond dove just lost her mate, he died suddenly and she is constantly calling for him. Does anyone know of a single lonely male who may also have lost his mate, I would love to adopt him for my lonely female. I know they stay in pairs so I do not want to take one that already has a...

    Hello! A few months ago I had a male Diamond dove, Sir.CoosALot. He was very noisy and on the advice of Tailfeathers, I got him a cute girlfriend. I introduced them slowly, they got on beautifully! On Christmas day she laid an egg, [ then another after. ] After laying, they ignored the eggs...

    So I purchased a pair of diamond doves from Petsmart months ago (first time dove owner). It was believed that they were both female. I noticed some strange behavior coming from one of them.. "she" would bow-coo (at the time we had no idea what this meant). Anyway the pair is very much bonded and...

    My husband brought home a diamond dove in December from the SPCA, and after much searching I found it a friend because it seemed very lonely. They were both acting a little strange the other day, and to my surprise I found two eggs cracked in their cage! They have a huge double flight cage. One...

    Hello We have 2 diamond doves which we got approximately a year ago. We 'rescued' them from a pet shop where the male was in very bad condition. (missing large patches of feathers on his back and underneath his wings, no tail, very small). They start mating and laying around November last...

    I got some liquid vitamin drops from the pet store and was putting them in my doves' seed cups. I was changing the seed daily so the seed wouldn't get gross from having the liquid vitamin added, but I noticed that neither of them was really touching their seed! (They have millet too and I also...

    I just ordered a couple of female diamond doves from Strombergs chickens. Does anyone have experience using them? I wanted to buy locally but there aren't any breeders in my area.

    Of my new pair of doves, the one I believe to be male has been doing this "wing-shaking" thing a LOT. And I can't really seem to find much of an explanation online. S/he lowers its' head, makes a raspy coo consisting of two notes, and shakes his wings very quickly. S/he doesn't seem upset...

I also have two parakeets who are brats and try to pester the doves if they are out at the same time lol. Anyways, I...
