I am getting a pair of ringneck doves today and I was wondering how friendly ringnecks are? Are they friendly by nature? Or are they sciddish? Please let me know ASAP!
They may be skittish at first, but they can be quite friendly. A single ringneck can become very tame and owner oriented. As a pair, not so much. In pairs, they bond with each other and are less dependent on their owners for companionship.I am getting a pair of ringneck doves today and I was wondering how friendly ringnecks are?

Beautiful.They are, by nature, gently and calm birds.. and very easy to tame.. even if you have a group of them like I do. The way to their hearts is with treats.. mine love crushed up unsalted peanuts. Don't rush it.. it takes several weeks for them to become trusting of you. All mine will feed from my hand.. sit on my arm of shoulder.. and peck at me hair when I sit on the sofa. I couple like to be tickled on the back of the neck. Just like people they all have their own personalities. One of my male ones is bossy and likes to peck my finger if I try to touch him.. and even will give me a slap with his wing. But they are so small and delicate they can't hurt you.
