    Hi,

    I was just curious. I have pigeons, but was thinking of adding some ringneck doves to the coop... But wasn't sure how they would get along. Does anyone have success keeping a variety together like this?

    Take Care,
    Bill.

    We keep out Giant Runts, Rollers, and Ringneck in the same loft. All of our Pigeons get along well. And for the most part, our Ringnecks get along with the Pigeons. We do have two males, who have a thing for being agressive towards the Pigeons, and have had to rescue them. We now keep them in the House. Like any animals, it all depends on their personality.

    Hey there,

    Thanks! At least now I know from you guys that it seems ok to try and put some Ringnecks in with the pigeons when I decide to get them and I won't worry as much.

    Take Care,
    Bill.
