My 2 doves are beating each other with their wings and stepping on each other. Is this normal? What should I do?

This Has Happened to me before

I think its because you have 2 males.. who are fighting to show one is more dominant than the other..
So you best bet is to get another cage and separate the two.

I had this when I added a second pair of doves to my aviary. The old male was really batting the new one, but it died down after a couple of days and although they still have the odd fight, they are friends now!

As long as you have a big enough cage, they should stop fighting soon.

All the best,

Get dividers in the cage or get a longer cage so there's more space.

Even adding an extra perch may help.

Yes, Bob has a great point. Adding extra perches can help settle down the aggression.

Stick the bully in "time out" in a cage by himself. Doves don't really like to be alone, and this seems to work for mine when I see one bullying another.
