I adopted a couple of Diamond Dove from the Pet Store. I knew when I was given it that it was sick. I just couldn't leave them there anymore and they were so cute. One of them is adjusting fine but the one is still having problems just not as bad as it was before. The vet said it was due to anxiety and it has become a habit for the bird when stressed. He eats, drinks, fly's, forges with the other bird. His poop is normal but about once a week I wake up to blood splatter over the cages and his face is bloody. He rub's it on his wing and the feather have fallen out from his face and on part of his wing. He only rubs one side of his face so he kind of looks like a two face dove. I bath him twice a week to help clean him off and then I give him a bird bath once during the week in his cage. He coos back at me when i'm make sounds and he doesn't seem to be unhappy. Any advice from Diamond Dove lovers would be much appreciated.
