    I have two hen ringneck doves, and am trying to find two males. Does anyone know where to find ringneck doves?
    Thanks

    K C Kennels carry them. I've gotten some very nice Racing Homers from there.

    I have an extra male for sale. Someone already asked about my doves, but there's a chance he'll still be up for sale. I'll let you know when I hear back from the other person [​IMG]

    i'd avoid buying online from a hatchery if you could. They're overpriced (mostly due to shipping) and theirs no guarenty of quality when you actually get them. depending on what part of the country you live in (or what country) i'd start hitting up all the bird swaps and shows, you can usually find the swaps on here. Or check the ada (american dove association) breeder directory for people in your area.

    Quote:I agree, I saw that Stromberg's sells doves, but shipping on one pair is $65?? That's ridiculous! Of course, the extra shipping for additional pairs wasn't much, I believe shipping for 5 pairs was $70, but those 5 pairs cost $40+ each! Ridiculous!

    http://www.dovebreeders.info/ i just stumbled on this sight, i have no experience using it so i can't recommend it or dis-recommend it, but it may be worth looking at

    That sounds good but what will come if I mixed them with my wild color girls?
