So who keeps doves?
I used to keep diamond doves, i think they are a very cute little dove and a nice bird to breed. (lots of courtship dances)

Hi Peter16, We have Wompoo & Rose Crown Fruit pigeons, both are fruit eating Pigeons. Have over the years had many others, such as Green wings, Masked, Bronze wing, Peaceful and more



Thanks

Hi Peter, that is a good question, technically a Dove is a Pigeon and a Pigeon is a dove. It's based on the size that usually determines the name, the common pigeon (rock) or homer is a pigeon and a Diamond dove being small is a dove. Hope that makes sense.



Thanks
P.A :lol: :lol:
