    Has anyone ever bred mourning doves with pied doves? Or any other kind? Ifso, do you have pictures? And can you buy hybrids? Thanks!

    If you breed a dove to a pigeon you get a (mule) bird that is sterile. Google Images has pictures of dove & dove crosses for starters.

And id so, if anyone has breed a pied dove to a mourning dove. Lol. That's all.. I wasn't even aware you,could breed a pigeon to a dove.. It doesn't seem healthy to me..

    But has those particular doves been bred? And I heard it was illegal to have a mourning dove? That's why I was wondering if there were any cross breeders I could buy from.
