In March 2016, I bought two diamond doves from a pet store (first problem). The pet store was completely clueless and it was clear the poor things had never been handled. They were very skittish. They’ve definitely bonded on each other, and that’s good, because when I can’t be around, they have each other, but I’ve been unable to really handle either of them. I open the door to their cage and try to coax them out, but they don’t even want to leave their cage. In the past, the only way to touch them was if they came out because then they didn’t mind me picking them up. Any suggestions to tame them? They coo all the time and seem pretty content but I would really like to be able to handle them. Thanks.
