he was the last cockatiel in the store and I had just lost one 6 months earlier, so I gave him a nice home with my other tiel.

HI TOBY. SWEETPEPPER AND I DID FINE AT THE VETS TODAY EVEN THOUGH WE WERE WOKE UP AT THE UNGODLY HOUR OF 7AM.

SWEETPEPPER PASSED WITH FLYING COLORS ON HER CHECKUP AND SHE WEIGHED THE SAME AS LAST TIME, 125. I WAS A BIT FIESTY TODAY AND THAT WAS A GOOD SIGN. THE VET WAS PLEASED TOO. I WEIGHED 98 TODAY, FRIDAY I WEIGHED 100 BUT A SLIGHT FLUCTUATION IN WEIGHT IS FINE. I THEN GOT MY NAILS CLIPPED AND THEN HE TOOK BLOOD FORM THE UNDERSIDE OF MY GOOD LEFT WING. I DIDN'T EVEN YELL. I DI HOWEVER LET HIM KNOW WHAT I FELT WHEN HE PUT ME BACK IN MY CAGE WHEN IT WAS ALL OVER WITH. NOW WE HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE RESULTS OF THE BLOOD WORK. VET WILL CALL WHEN HE GETS THE RESULTS. MOM IS HOPING ITS NOT BAD, MAYBE JUST A TAD LOW IN CALCIUM LEVELS.

THE VET APPROVED OF ALL THE THINGS THAT MOM IS FEEDING US SO THAT IS GOOD.

LETS KEEP OUR TOES CROSSED FOR A GOOD LAB RESULT.

  Hi Toby,
Yes, mom can drop you off anytime at the castle. You can stay there as long as you like. There are birdies there now that came early. Some of the parronts just dropped them off because they had other plans or had to work.

Have mom just drop you off today at anytime, even tonight. We should be there all day! You will have a great time!

Queen Chipper invites you to the castle for a cookout on Sunday, May 25 to celebrate Memorial Day. This is will held on Sunday since many parronts may be going to cookouts the following day and may not be able to blog. It will be on the castle page #239094 at approximately 3:00 EST but you can come anytime during the day or mom can drop you off. Feel free to bring games to play or any sporting equipment for a game of ball. Just a time of food, fun, and fellowship with our BC friends.

Have a great holiday weekend! Hope to see you Sunday at the castle. Leaving a vote for you!

  Lifespan of a Diamond Dove
The lifespan of the diamond dove is different in captivity than if living in the wild.

In captivity, the diamond dove usually lives about 12-15 years. With proper care, they can even live into their 20's.

In the wild, however, diamond doves only live 3-5 years.

  Vocalization
Doves are relatively quiet birds. They make a variety of soft, low-pinched cooing sounds. Their cooing, however, may be persistent and repetitive. Many people find the cooing very pleasant.

  Supplements
Your dove should be given a vitamin/mineral supplement to assure you are providing all the nutrients it needs, especially if it is a finicky eater.

Note: Although the directions may tell you to put the vitamins in water, this is not good to do. Vitamins can settle to the bottom or lose its potency. It is best to put the supplement on soft foods or moist fruits or vegetables.

In addition to a vitamin/mineral supplement, doves need a small amount of grit. Unlike most birds, doves swallow their seeds whole and grit helps to digest them.

There are two kinds of grit:

Indigestible grit, which is sand or bits of ground rock. However, if your bird overeats this, it can become sick.

Digestible grit such as oyster shell, ground cuttlebone, or crushed eggshells pass safely through their system and is also a good source of calcium.
