Doves and pigeons, rescued from local animal shelters, make great pets. They're sweet, smart, calm & full of personality. But, because people aren't aware of them, they often can't find good homes. These domesticated birds can't survive in the wild and are relatively easy to care for (quiet, non-biting, non-chewing, non-plucking).
Doves and pigeons need:
Safe place (indoors or outdoors, protected from weather and predators)
Room to move (4' high x 3' deep x 6' long is good for 4 to 6 small doves or 1 to 2 large pigeons)
Fresh food (dove or pigeon feed), water, grit, and greens daily
Company (either yours or another bird's)
Family planning (if you have a mated pair, you need to replace real eggs with fake ones)
Avian Vet Care if they become sick or injured
