What's up with standard dove pans? I've got a Morrisey single, and a double. Both are too small to fit doves. Why don't they call these things cake pans!!! Can someone recommend a dove pan that will fit a dove? Thanks

In all my years of dove magic, I've never had an issue with a dove pan. Among others, I've owned Morrisey pans and they were never too small to hold a dove. If your doves are on the larger side, you can gently adjust the tail to fit. There are chick pans, which are smaller, cake pans, dove pans and of course duck pans. Is it possible you have chick pans and not dove pans?

Dave and Julie, I've spent quite some time handling these albino ringnecks, and they won't fit. I'd love a quick video chat, to find out why my perception is so skewwed. I have chick pans, these are not ckick pans, they're Morrisey dove pans. Having the birds fly is an important aspect of my show, I'm not chopping 2 1/2 inches off. I'll send a private message.

I had ring necks, and they fit fine. For my shows I only cut about an inch or less off the tail feathers, never impeded there flying ability.

It is when the wings are clipped that gets in the way of taking flight.

The late great Neil Foster told me magicians like Channing Pollock used "Java" doves. I could never find any that referenced that name. They are smaller in size.

You could find a "Duck Pan" that would fit 3 of your Ring necks. It is a very large pan. I believe Morrissey made one as well, it wasn't an big a Abbott's Magic version, but it was very deep, about 4 inches.

Give D.J. a call he should be able to give you dimensions of their dove pan.

Ickle Pickle makes a top quality product with service to match!

Best of luck

Ted, I sent you a pm but you need to measure the length of your dove from the base of the head to the tip of the tail. Morrisey pans are 6 1/2" in diameter, a little smaller than other versions but still larger enough for most doves.Viking pans are 7" in diameter for example.
