Diamond Dove Species Profile
Traits:  Diamond doves are easy-going and can be tamed. Although they generally prefer their fellow doves to humans, some diamond doves enjoy being petted and may sit on your hand. Diamond doves are most commonly kept in aviaries and do well in mixed species aviaries.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  Primarily seed eaters, diamond doves also need grit in order to digest seed. They are susceptible to dehydration. They can also be territorial, so place perches as well as a high, flat surfaces to roost on. Diamond doves enjoy a diet consisting of millet or canary grass seed with the occasional wheat and milo seed portions added. Special treats can be served on occasion, such leafy green vegetables, broccoli, apples, boiled eggs, cooked rice, peanut butter and grated cheese. Males are slightly darker than females, and both have white spots on their wing coverts giving them their common name.
