After asking some of my friends and some books on doves I finally found out that there are 3 ways of thinking.

One part of the people think that doves should have some toys that are something like
mirrors and so on(nearly all of that stuff you can purcase at your local pet shop for regular birds.

The 2nd part says to just put in some sticks of wood and grass and a bowl with sand and so on.

The 3rd part say that doves don't need any special toys at all.

What do you think about this subject?
Any comments?

Hi Signature,

I've been raising doves for 5 years. When I first started with doves, I put all kinds of toys in the cage. They didn't seem to notice them. The doves have the most fun with straw and nesting material. They will busy themselves all day building a nest and keeping it tidy. They have to have grit which might be what the sand meant.

Hope this helps.

They are very simple animals. The sand isn't for grit, they just enjoy playing in it.
Bye for now.

Finches, parakeets, and parrots enjoy toys but doves, as Dakota stated are content with nesting materials.

Ok so I'll put in a bowl of sand for them (a flat one). Nesting stuff is alright... I got that so far.

Thanx

Signature,

Add a little Sevin to the sand and solve another problem at the same time!
