Hello All :) :)
I have just acquired some fantail white doves, which are netted up in my garden, getting used to their new home, they still havent been to ikea yet, but they seem to like it.
(they still will not go inside the dovecote, even after a few helping hands!!) Will they ever work out where to sleep on their own?
Also there is a family of wood pigeons close by, who are giving them evils on the nearby rooftops, is this normal? After I lift the net im worried they will amount a full scale attack on my babies...
Please any information would be fantastic.
Btw ive named them Rod, Jane and Freddy(Fredricka), cant tell the sex yet :)

Peace

Andy :)

The Woodies won't pose a problem.

Can your babies fly up to the dovecote? Is the net obstructing their flight up to the pop holes? You could try a perch half way up so that they can get up in two stages.

Don't leave them on the ground overnight, a fox or cat will soon break through the net if they see an easy meal.:eek:
