Hey there folks, the same exact bird mart once arrives again on Building #4 at Fairplex, Pomona on June 25, the same day on Michael Jackson's passing!How sad! But anyways, I'm planning on obtaining a pair of barbary/ringneck doves in the bird mart. I choose them since they're really accustomed to human activity, smaller than pigeons and they'll brood their squabs even in a captive environment. I always though quail but they don't raise their chicks in the same fashion as columbiforms (pigeons & doves). I harvest the eggs and place them in an artificial incubator, which I've done long ago but am not doing this anymore. Sorry if you had to read all of this but this is just why I'm beginning to lean toward doves over quails. What I do know is doves consume the seeds whole rather than shelling the husk open like a parrot or finch does. Due to this, I have read that these seed-swallowers require grit in their diet, unlike most other birds. Yet I doubt if they really need it since I've never kept, nor bred them in my entire life. When I get them, this will be my first time raising these birds of peace. In addition, what types of seeds is best for barbary doves? Parakeet and finch feed? Moreover, will they ever peace out in a cage like this??? Thank you in advance!
