    HELP PLEASE ~ I have two hens (a black australorp and a rhode island red) and I want doves or pigeons. The problem is, I can't make another enclosure (my backyard's kind of small; the run is about 10x25x10 ish) and I can't keep them inside. Is it still possible for me to get pigeons or doves? I really want some but I know the first thing I have to know about getting a new bird is space and minding my other birds... :p please help! thanks :)

    [​IMG] I don't know anything about doves/pigeons but BYC does have a thread for them. I think I recall some coop pictures where there were a couple doves up in the rafters. ithat's not the same as people having a number of chickens/doves together. I'm sure if you asked in the dove section someone would know the answer
