    I have three doves together in a large aviary. Two male and one female. The female and one of the males have paired and wont have anything to do with the other. The other dove seems to have lice or mites right on his neck, and im not sure he can preen there. Will he get rid of them? Or will I need to catch him and dust him? If so, How would i catch him?
