My male dove has love on the brain,he mounts poor little Herminnie 3to4 times a day,more sometimes and she just seems to put up with
his advances
(god love mother nature================= BUT===================
when they are inside to feed,morning and night,when they are on their feeding T stand ,the male just barges the feamale straight off the end of the stand (for about one month now) I feel sorry for her,Is this a normal behaviour.
It's like he want's all the food for himself.
They use to sit on the stand for long periods of time quite happily together,but now he's turning into a real ***.
any idea's guys.

Your male is looking for "love". It's natural for him to mount the female and it's normal for her to just sit and bear it. It will continue until either she gets pregnant or he just gives up. As for pushing her off the feeding stand, he's showing his dominence. That will pass.

If the mounting or pushing turns into severe pecking, you'll need to separate the two.
