    Finally found a breeder and got a pair of white doves for my son for Christmas, and ended up getting a pair for myself! They were so pretty, my girl is even a silkie! Very pleased with these birds. Thanks to everyone that helped me out with some advice.

    That one on the left is real?? She looks like she should just stay there til you take the tree down. I didn't know there was such a thing as silkie doves.

    Thats cute. I love silkie doves. It is advised not to breed two silkies together as you could get porqupines
