My dad has always enjoyed watching my pigeons fly when I turn my rollers out. He's never really wanted to keep any birds of his own tho. Today, he expressed interest in keeping some breed of dove. Something small...like the diamond doves or maybe some coppernecks or greenwings. I KNOW pigeons...but I don't know doves. Can doves be turned out like pigeons and be expected to hang around? Do doves need a heat lamp for winter, being that some of them originate from tropical climates? What kind of structures do you dove folks use? I see a lot of them in finch size cages, but that ain't how we keep our birds around here. Id like to build them something nice but don't know what they need... Can someone point me in the right direction? I would like to surprise him with something from the Louisville show in a few weeks but I also wanna make sure I got good housing for it also. Thank yall!
