Is it okay if male doves are together? At the bird store ther is about 20 doves in one cage. How do you pick out a pair of doves. Will the doves be happy?


thanks

Mike, males doves are very territorial and will almost always fight unless they're kept in a large aviary. There are exceptions but that's a general rule.

Picking out a mated pair can be difficult unless you are buying them from a breeder. You can get a male and a female but there is no guarantee that they'll mate and have offspring.

I guess if you see them smile, that would mean they're happy. Smile Sorry, just had to say that. I'm not sure about being happy but they can be content and friendly once they get to know you.

NO NO NO! I've just had a really bad experience with male doves. I only have one female and the doves have been nearly killing each other. They have had their eyes nearly pecked out, wings broken, and hair plucked from one poor doves head. Now I've seperated them and they are all recovering. Never again.

Matt,

A hairy headed dove? We do accept them as family, don't we? (I actually love to hear that!)

In my family, the human males tend to have light colored eyes and the girls have brown eyes. Once my daughter explained the reason away to my dad with her assumption that we get the brown eyes from the horses! We're next of kin I guess. She is now 19 and does very well professionally training and showing American Quarter Horses nationally.

Maybe she's right! Pass the oats, please.

Pets, partners and family, that's a good match!

Bob
The talking horse, hairy headed dove, and Anna's dad that does magic, of course
