Doves love to be stroked and held and want to interact with their Pet Parents as much as possible. They require 15-30 minutes or more of daily interaction. These gentle birds can often be tamed to sit on your hand. The soft cooing sounds of the male bird make the dove an amusing pet.

Things to remember

Feed her 1-2 teaspoons per day of a pellet or seed-based, fortified finch diet.

Doves swallow their seeds whole. Place a small pinch of grit in their food each week to help aid in digestion.

High metabolic rate
Because a dove's metabolism is very active, food should be available at all times.

Long-term companions
Before purchasing, be aware that a dove requires a long-term commitment of approximately 20 to 25 years.

A cuttlebone can be provided for your dove.

Your dove's cage must be large enough for her to comfortably stretch her wings and fly from perch to perch. The bigger the cage, the better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from they are not blue I did a lot of research ahead of time and found these little beauties only available online. The blue diamond doves are more expensive, and the ones that PetSmart gets are the grey variety so the picture is a bit deceiving. I know what I wanted however and bought my first diamond from them and she is beautiful, healthy and very active. She needs a mate as they pair for life and need that companionship. The store I go to only seems to buy one at a time, so I'll need to be diligent...but I would highly recommend this beautiful and calm bird for anyone who would like to own a pet bird and not like the screeming of a parakeet or other parrot. These birds are very quiet, gently, affectionate, and their songs are soothing and gentle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have bought a total of 4 diamond doves from Petsmart! I love all of them! At first they may seem afraid of you and somewhat skittish, but I guarentee they will lighten up to you over time. Don't stick you hand inside the cage for an entire week when you first bring it home. Let him or her get used to your presence and your house so they will learn that you are not a threat to them. This works WONDERS, I did this with the last 2 diamond doves I bought and by then end of 7 days I put my hand in her cage and she wasn't scared at all of my hand. She is still a little hard to catch but she will sit on my finger for up to 5 minutes at a time. She has learned to trust me - I take her out everyday and talk to her. I love these little birds - they are so nice and quiet with soft coos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from doves are so sweet Bought a couple diamond doves nov 2015, and just love them. They are calm and happy in their new home. Love the cooing sounds in the morning, and evenings. I am so enjoying my birds. Lots of assistance to care needs and informations available from people working in the store, and written info about these birds. Find them very easy to tend and care too. Needs are minimal for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sweet natured, beautiful cooing, and gentle I bought 2 diamond doves in October. They are very sweet natured and gentle. They never peck / bite if they become scared, but will fly away instead. They are easy to catch once they are tired as long as you make slow movements. Working on taming them and its been slow going with that. My male doves cooing is beautiful to listen to, but can sometimes be a bit too much even though he is not loud about it (in comparison to the noise a parakeet makes.) my female dove will coo on occassions but is normally quite. A great starter bird for people with not much experience. They are very easy to care for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! These Diamond Doves are absolutely stunning! I have a small aviary dedicated to them and I regret nothing. They don't need huge areas as many other doves do, and can easily be hand trained.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dimond Doves I recently bought 2 Dimond Doves and they were bought as a pair. I have not had them long and they recently laid their second egg. I hope they hatch. So far, they have been a good asset to our family. The children love to watch them and now we get to see them have babies! I would highly recommend this type of bird if you are trying to decide which one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wonderful birds, but not what was expected I got my 1st Dove a while ago , as a neophyte to the world of birds. I was excited to get the little one. After bringing her home, it became clear that she was super skittish, I thought maybe she just needed time, but time did nothing to make her more friendly. I suppose my advice is that this is a good bird, but don't expect it to be affectionate, especially if it was not hand fed as a baby. Also, don't buy the bird if the petsmart associate doesn't know basic things about the birds past, like if the bird was hand fed or not.

How do diamond doves do around loud music such as gospel, rock, and techno? Does it make them unhappy?

Asked by: Dribble
My doves don't like noises. I keep them in a bathroom with a door cracked.

can you only get one diamond dove and it will be happy by itself?

Asked by: donald51
Birds are social animals. They need companions (they flock). When they sleep, they face perpendicular directions to each other to keep eyes out. They get more agitated when there's fewer of them.

Will my cats try and atcke this bird and if so where should i put it?

Asked by: Hi peoplr
It generally depends on the cat, but just to be safe, you should keep your bird in a separate room from your feline friend. If you ever do let them interact, which I believe you shouldn't just in case, be sure to never take your eyes off them!
