    I've got a couple white ones and a ring neck. We rescued them when they were young. Can you sex doves? I have no idea what gender they are. [​IMG] any trade secrets?

    A wise dove keeper once said, "the only one who can sex a dove, is another dove".

    Males are usually the ones who do the bow and coo move. Although many females do this too, so it isn't 100% accurate.
