I have owned several doves - at most 4 at one time. They are very pretty birds, and have a beautiful cooing noise that they make. They are friendly and easy to handle, though they prefer to be left alone. They enjoy time outside (in cage) as well as time inside, out of the cage, to stretch their wings. They do need a relatively large cage, and they also make a lot of messes with their bird seed. They really enjoy being with another dove, no matter what the sex of the other dove. Males and females will breed and lay eggs frequently.
