    My female dove has just recently begun to bow coo. She has a mate, but she never does this around her. She only starts doing this when I'm playing with her and she gets excited. Is this a sign of dominance? I've had her for 4 years and she just started doing this

    More likely the hen sees you as a possible replacement for a mate that isn't wanted-poor guy.
