    I just love my doves! Miracle is my favourite one. She survived having her cage knocked down and breaking open one night. I found her the next morning badly wounded on the ground, but she flew off into the distance when I tried to pick her up. 4 days later I was watering the garden, when out of no where she flew down and landed on my head!!!!

    She is completely recovered now we have a very strong bond between us.

    My Doves enjoying some free flying in my living room. The are trained to only rest on their cages or on a towel on the back of the sofa. They love to do circuits of the room, and also peck about on the floor.

    And finally my 2 Diamond Doves. The hen is unusual as she has a crest! They are quite new, so have to work on getting be be friends with them.

    Wow... Doves are really pretty. Do they lay eggs in nest boxes like chickens?

    They don't like boxes like chickens. They like open baskets or open containers to make their nests. I use small wicker baskets (as they look nice). They then make a messy nest in them with twigs, feathers and stalks.

    I have kept many pets over the years, but the Doves and Chickens are totally the BEST!
