I was given 5 doves. One was pure white and the others were rock doves. The white one stayed in his cage but the others came and went.
When he got out of his cage he would stay close and eventually come back to his cage. He was not bothered by cats or dogs.
He sang and would coo every day which was very peaceful. It sounds like someone laughing, ha ha ha, and someone saying who, who who?
He did not mind being held and would in fact almost purr and would tuck his head up against my chin.
Easy to care for. Easy to feed. Bird seed and fruits were a favorite along with millet. They also like fresh growing grass with the dirt attached, in the bottom of their cage.
This breed can live up to 25 years so be prepared to have a noisy bird for a very long time.
