can a ringneck dove raise a baby mourning dove ?

I don't see why not. A turkey can raise chickens and chickens can raise ducks.

Yes. I've had mine, in past, raise mourning doves n rock doves (feral/stray "pigeons"), as well as blue jays, starlings sparrows, black birds, courtnix quail,bantams and standard chooks, and others I'm forgetting names of. Basically ringnecks will set and try to feed anything.

keeping assorted bantams and standard chickens..    pigeons: "white dove release" racing homers, flying flights, flying birmingham rollers, parlor rollers, parlor tumblers, "coop tumblers", Chinease owls.

    Looking to talk to others who enjoy our pigeon/dove hobby.  Also looking to talk chickens, especially black bantam true rosecombs i hope to have again someday, as well as silkies, and...

there were no problems with it raising other species of birds not related to doves? including the different feeding style ?

Oddlyno, but the quail freak n pop all over the place n the foster parents chase them stuffing the chicks under n just regurge food for chicks to eat. There was something I can't remember about the jays, maybe was just feeding them basic small brown kibble as nutritionally closer than seed n gets them ready to eat nuts etc.red wing black birds was supplementing with feeder insects.
