    Hola everyone,

    I'm looking at adding nesting material for my doves. Any recommendations? I have 3 baskets in the aviary already but they prefer to poop in them and roost instead. Any advice would be more than helpful.

    Dog bowls with Lil holes in bottom, n pine needles as bedding, or pine shavings, or hay/straw. In those orders.

  3. Use straw. Works great. Pine needles too.

    When left free, they usually use just twigs majority of time, sometimes feathers.
