I was practicing a routine and it was my first time doing this with my dove. I had my dove hanging on the back of my table but she kept sneezing. Is it because she was scared or has anyone experienced that before. Thanks

Jerrid, there could be several reasons for this. First, is the area in which you are practicing, dusty? Second, you dove may have a small virus like a cold in people. Does it sneeze when you put it back in it's cage or just when it is hanging on your table?

It is fine when it's back in it's cage or flying around the house. It might have been a little dusty but I wasn't paying that much attention.

Don't take this wrong, but you need to pay attention. Attention to your environment, attention to your dove and the area in which you place them. They deserve only the very best as that is, I'm assuming here, what you expect of them. Please take care and if you have any additional questions, please ask. Let us know about your dove, ok?

I have noticed that one of my dove has been sneezing quite a lot recently. Is there aything I can do to help it and and can this dove pass it on to the other doves?

2 things you could do...
buy some vitamins and add it to the doves water. Change the paper at the base of the cage and isolate the dove...

option 2- Take it to a vet!

Thanks Kyle - I have been putting vitamins in the feed and clean the aviary eery week. I think I'll wait and he how she copes and if it gets worse, I'll take her to the vet.
