    I'm wondering how you can raise them? Any tips? Our feed supply has some. I don't know if they sell them but i'll buy a permit. Does anyone here raise them?

    Are you confusing the native mourning dove with domestic ringneck doves?

    Mourning doves are a federally protected migratory bird, and would require permits to own them. They wouldn't just be selling them at a feed store (not legally anyway).

    Domestic doves are really common, though, most pet stores carry them, usually in the $20 ish price range.
