Hello again! Quick question, are cage covers required for owning a lone ringneck dove?
Also, can chicken wire be used to shorten the distance between bars on a cage if using a large dog crate?

Thanks,
Taubee :p

Yes, you could use chicken wire or hardware cloth. Don't some doves get night terrors? They get scared and can fly up and hurt themselves. Not sure which ones. I always cover a couple of sides of a cage for my pigeons if they are in a cage for a while. I think it gives them privacy and makes them feel safer. I have heard of some people leaving on a nightlight or low light for some doves who do get scared at night, so they can see what is going on.
