Hello, Hoping to add some dove this year and have some questions. Zero experience with them - I've raised chickens, ducks, & coturnix - but nothing any closer to a dove. Hoping to keep them outoors full time (zone 6a/6b border): 6a −23.3 °C (−10 °F) −20.6 °C (−5 °F) 6b −20.6 °C (−5 °F) −17.8 °C (0 °F) I also prefer to raise things as natural as possible - I kept my coturnix in an hoop coop style setting on the ground and such, and hoping that doves can be raised in a similar setting - pros and cons of a set-up like this? General questions - Can Silkie/Frizzle feathered doves fly at all? I'd like 1 or 2 (I know not to breed them to each other) in a flock of half dozen or so. Do I need to separate them by pairs or can a flock live communally? Anything other than draft protection needed? Assuming they're like most birds and can survive the cold as long as they aren't exposed to drafts and weather. If you have photos of outdoor housing - flights, aviaries, etc - that would be great.
