Two doves = a clumsy mess! They constantly laid eggs and constantly jumped onto their eggs, leaving a nice gooey yolk mess. They were also very loud, making a "laughter" giggle noise all the time. Sometimes it was funny because they laughed when people laughed. They're not really loving birds. Most the time they just stare at you with beady, vacant eyes. If we let them fly around the house, they made big huge poop messes and flew into the walls, windows, curtains, you name it. So they weren't really all that FUN. You can't give them to little kids because these birds don't really defend themselves either. If the kid is hurting it, the dove just kind of shakes his head around but doesn't vocalize any discomfort. They were interesting little buggers.

On the upside, it is intriguing to say "I own doves!" I would not own them again though.
