I had turtle doves as a teenager and really enjoyed them. My idiot father made me give them away when I went to college. Well, at 45, I guess I'm old enough to do as I please, so I would like to get a pair of doves again. I have a really nice, large cage that I think would be perfect and a good place in the house for it with nice lighting and away from drafts. Considering either regular turtle doves or the diamond doves, which are really beautiful little birds? If you were in my position, which would you choose as household pets and why? TIA.
