    Hi I live in a high rise in California with a pair of cockatiels. The pet store around the corner had a pair of pure white doves in deplorable conditions. They were shoved in a filthy cage that was so small the male's tale was completely frayed and broken off. I was even more concerned about the...

    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...

    Hello everyone! I have a question for all you experienced dove owners out there. It's probably one you have heard a lot, but the situation I have is a bit specific and I haven't really found a 'clear' answer. One year ago, I purchased a young male wildtype ringneck dove named Milo. He was...

    Hello all! I’m new here, I just had some questions. I’ve had 2 Ringneck doves for around two years, and I think I may make a move to pigeons. I love my two doves very much, but they just aren’t what I was/am looking for in a bird. My doves, whom I’ve dubbed Klaus and Scooter, are very skittish...

    Pictured above(hopefully) is the house I built for my two pet rescue ringnecks, Arson&Anarchy, who I've been gleefully spoiling for about a month now. As you can see, the room has windows, but they're actually under a deck, so little to no sunlight gets in, and the birds can't be relocated...

    Hallo again! Planning on just using water from water bottles, but that can get costly. Is it safe to use fish tank water dechlorinator? Or this: https://www.amazon.com/Zoo-Med-AvianSafe-Conditioner-4-Ounce/dp/B005DGHHSE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1495214770&sr=8-1&keywords=bird+water+conditioner...

    Hallo! I'm planning on adopting a Ringneck Dove soon, and I've got what I need as far as information on housing, hygiene, etc. but I was wondering if it would be ok to just simply get a lone Ringneck Dove? I don't have the money to own to of them, and I just wanted to know if owning a lone...

    Hallo again! Aaa, I've got a quick question. What are the best/most recommended perches for ringneck doves? And how many do they need? Some people say they only need 1 or 2, a round and a flat. Any help would be appreciated! I know it's kind of a basic question, but I just want to double check.
