Doves make excellent pet birds because they are generally healthy, undemanding, inexpensive and fairly easy to tame. They are quiet with a calming and gentle voice.
Doves are generally a smaller breed of bird, once tamed these species can become your closest companion, always seeking some attention and returning to their cage without being prompted.
Doves have a very simple diet consisting of budgie mix and pigeon grit. These birds will not eat fruit and vegetables. A vitamin supplement is recomended and if these birds do not recieve direct sunlight some vitamin D supplement also should be added to there water.
