It turns out the dove I have is actually a ringneck dove and not a mourning dove. I'm not sure why I assumed she was a mourning dove. But anyway she has black feathers coming in on her neck and that's how I know she's a ringneck. I'm keeping her in cage I got that's 22 inches wide and 18 inches long and high. I'm not going to be keeping her in there for long, just for a week or two, then I'm moving her into a chicken coop my dad built. It's pretty big, probably about 7 feet wide. There are no other birds in it. I have a couple questions. 1) Should I keep her? I feel really bad about her in a cage. 2) If I do keep her when should I get her a mate? 3) I'm not actually sure if she's a girl; I've just been calling her that. How can I know if she/he is a girl or boy?
