Any idea to the type of dove this is?

    I've had these guys for awhile now and always wondered what type of dove they are. They have violet/orangeish coloring. They make sweet and calm pets. Not sure if they're liking the white dove roomate.

    That looks to me like a Tangerine Ringneck Dove.

    The white doves you commonly see in stores are also ringnecks...just a different color mutation.

    Thanks! The violet color was throwing me off. I figured a mutation of sort but wasn't sure.
