I am very happy yet confused since it is winter, but this is my male Diamond Dove sitting on some eggs his mate laid. XD I am having a bit of a baby boom, first baby quails and now we have diamond dove eggs! I was expecting it to happen March and April time, the usual baby-boom time for birds, but my doves and quails seem way ahead of the game... The odd thing is we have no special solar lamps or anything that would normally trigger them to breed, with the quails I wasn't that surprised as they breed like rabbits, but I wasn't expecting diamond dove eggs. Is there anything special I need to know regarding Diamond Doves and their chicks? I know they need to be cared for by their parents due to requiring the crop milk.
