What a beautiful day we are having for our trip. Everybirdie is having such a good time. There is an activity planned for each night on the boat.

Last night, there was music and refreshments, just a time of fellowship for all of us to get to know one another better. Refreshments will be served all day today as well.

Tonight, we are going to see the movie Rio 2. There will be fresh popcorn and drinks for everybirdie.

  Hello Spot~
I hope you are having a great day! Absolutely nothing of interest going on in my world but I did want to come by and say hello!
We have been doing more spring cleaning this week and it's really not very exciting at all!! Mom scrubbed the sliding glass door and the screen! It's so bright and pretty and I have an excellent view of the flags out in front of the complex! It's always windy around here so they are always flapping! They have red tulips on the flags and I enjoy watching them wave in the wind!
I hope you are enjoying your day and that window cleaning is not the most exciting thing going on in your life! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

LOL !!!! Jake told me to say that.

I think you might have scared off a bunch of boy birds at the KB. I seen a couple of them hideing behind the trees looking scared.

I did put cameras in the stuffed owl in the tree for you. You can watch the booth on your I phone any time you want to.

  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.

  A Healthy Diet (Continued)
PROTEIN

In addition to fruits and vegetables, you need to include protein in your dove's diet.

Insects are a good source of protein, although they are not necessary for your dove. You can either give them live insects or dried ones.

Another good source of protein are chopped hard-boiled eggs. This is important for breeding doves that are raising chicks. Crushed egg shells mixed in with the egg will provide calcium with the protein. Note: Eggs must be cooked thoroughly. Your bird can become sick from partially or uncooked eggs.

You can also give your dove tiny bits of thoroughly cooked meat or bits of cheese. However, this should be given only rarely and as a special treat.

  A Healthy Diet
FRUITS AND VEGETABLES

Although all common pet doves are in the seed-eaters group, there are additional foods that can be a part their diet.

Seed-eating doves cannot tolerate large amounts of high-water-content foods. However, a daily treat of fresh food is fine for most doves.

Fruits and vegetables are a good source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. When choosing produce, (one's that are safe for birds) bright colors are the healthiest choice. Example: sweet potatoes are more nutritious than white potatoes, red peppers have more vitamins than green peppers, and red grapes are higher in antioxidants than green grapes. Dark leafy green vegetables are also nutritious.

Some of the most favorite foods of the dove include:
shredded greens, grated carrots, finely chopped broccoli florets, diced apple, berries, fresh corn and peas. Your dove may not like all these foods, but as you experiment with differents ones, you will find that they may be some of their favorites.

  Hi Spot!
It is getting hot here! I love it! I got to go to the park and craft store the other day, I always love that! Most of the workers at the Michaels know me and mommy, but there was one guy there that we hadn't seen before (he must have been new). When he saw me, he stared at me and got this surprised look on his face. He then walked away, but we could here him say into his little walky talky thing, "There is a BIRD in the store!" in the most confused and concerned voice! Mommy had to try so hard not to die of laughter! I'm guessing the person on the other end of the device said it was okay, because he didn't come back to tell us otherwise! :P You guys will NEVER guess what happened yesterday! Last night, mommy was watching the new episode of Agents of Shield. During the new episodes, the cast usually tweets live on Twitter. Mommy will usually send a bunch of tweets to the cast, but never really ever thought anyone would notice her. Last night, mommy tweeted: "@clarkgregg Will today be the that Agent Coulson says hi to me?" , and then continued to watch the show. After a minute or two, she looked through her feed on her Twitter app (on her Ipod), and a 1 popped up next to the notification bell, and so did a popup that said: "Clark Gregg replied to your tweet". Mommy couldn't even read what he said before she started totally FREAKING OUT. He had said only one word, which was "Yes!", but that was enough to make her have a FULLY FLEDGED FANGIRL ATTACK. She was crying and shaking so hard. When she tried to tell her sister she ended up just shoving her Ipod in her face while making unhuman noises. After a bit she calmed down, but was still super duper thrilled. My mommy is so weird! Anyway, she is still so happy today, and according to her, she probably will be forever. LOL! Hugs, Peatree

  Doves As Pets
SETTING UP YOUR DOVE'S CAGE

Doves, like other pet birds, need a variety of perches to keep their feet exercised and comfortable. However, they do spend much of their time on the bottom of the cage, as I had mentioned in yesterday's blog. You can remove the wire tray at the bottom of the cage so your dove can walk comfortably. Besides your dove walking on the bottom and pecking for food, they spend a lot of time sitting at the bottom as well.

Doves also enjoy sitting in a nest. You will need to purchase a canary nest or you can make one of your own.

You will not need to purchase anything for your dove to play with. Doves do not play with toys or on a playgym.

  Doves As Pets
PURCHASING A CAGE

When purchasing a cage for a single or pair of ringneck or diamond doves, the measurements of the cage should be at least 24 inches in length, 16 inches wide and 18-24 inches in height.

Unlike parrots, doves do not climb, so the length of the cage is more important than the height.

However, doves do need to room to flap their wings and fly. They also spend a lot of time walking around on the bottom of the cage, so the bigger the cage, the better.

DETERMINING THE GENDER OF THE IMMATURE DOVE

If you decide to purchase a pair of young doves, you may want to buy a male and female.
The only way to determine the gender of the immature dove would be to submit a blood sample for DNA analysis or have your vet examine them endoscopically.

The DNA sexing is simple and noninvasive. It is performed from a drop of blood from a clipped toenail or emerging blood feather.

Some pet stores can have this done for you or your vet can perform the test. You may want to have this done if you are interested in breeding your doves in the future.

  Hello Spot~
I hope you are having a great day! It's very pretty here! A real spring day!
Mom was off last night and she'll be off again on Friday. She couldn't get two days off in a row this week because there is too much work. It's clearance week plus they added a special weekend ad. The store is having it's Fuschia event this weekend so there will be special sales to go along with it. It's an annual event and everyone looks forward to it. They have geranium and fuschia starts for sale and if you bring your own pot the garden staff will plant them for you. Hanging baskets are a big thing up here so by next week you will be seeing them everywhere.
I have spent the morning trying to keep Merlin away from mom! He had his outside on the balcony time and play with the ribbon time but he is trying to butt into my climb on mom time! I told him he needs to go grab a nap until I'm ready for my apple and then he can jump up on the computer desk again!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's a spectacular day!

  Doves As Pets
INTRODUCTION

Doves are gentle birds that are hardy. They are quiet birds, have a peaceful nature, and don't require as much complicated care as other species of birds. This makes them a good pet for the beginner.
Diamond doves are even good pets for young children as long as an adult supervises the care.
Since doves are quiet birds, they are good to keep in apartments where you may not be able to keep a noisy parrot.

Doves can be kept as single pets or in pairs but they do better in pairs. If you keep a single dove be prepared to give it lots of attention and interaction.

What a beautiful, sunny morning it is too. The temperatures are in the 50s and the snow is almost completely gone from our yard. I can see the tulips starting to grow finally. Spring is my favorite time of the year.

  Introduction to Doves (Conclusion)
Doves are divided into two groups: seed-eaters and fruit-eaters. Fruit-eaters are difficult birds to maintain in captivity and are not suitable as pets. All common pet doves are in the seed-eating group. (However, doves need food, in addition to their seeds, that I will mention at a later time in a blog on diets.) The most common pet doves are the diamond dove and the ringneck dove.

This week I have introduced doves and gave you information, which included their family, their origin,
and even how diamond doves acquired their name. I hope you found this information interesting as well as educational.

Next week, I will provide information on the care of doves as pets.

HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND! THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND VOTES TO HELP ME BECOME YOUR NEXT BOTM. LEAVING A VOTE FOR YOU!!

Your friend,
Chipper

  The Diamond Dove's Origin,
The diamond dove is native to Australia. They exist near water but where it is lightly or semi-dry, which is in Central, West, and Northern Australia. They are occasionally seen in Southern Australia in parks and gardens in the Centre(the sparsely inhabited central region of Australia) where it is very dry.

As part of my BOTM campaign, I will be taking a trip to my native country to see some of the tourist attractions. If any of my BC friends would like to join me for this adventure, please let me know in your blog. This will take place toward the end of the month after I have finished giving you my information on doves.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND! THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT AND VOTES TO HELP ME BECOME YOUR NEXT BOTM.

Your friend,
Chipper

  HI SPOT
I HAD TO LAUGH WHEN YOU BROUGHT UP THE POINT OF BECOMING THE APRIL FOOLS DAY QUEEN. IT MADE MOM LAUGH TOO AND THAT REALLY MADE HER BACK HURT. MOMS NOT DOING VERY WELL. THE HARDEST IS TRYING TO SLEEP AT NIGHT. THEN HER USUAL MORNING OF SNEEZING IS TAKING A TOLL. THE BATHROOM SINK BECAME CLOGGED AND HAD TO CALL A PLUMBER WHO CAME THIS MORNING. MOM HAD TO CLEAN THE BATHROOM BEFORE THE PLUMBER SAW IT. THEN SHE HAD TO CLEAN IT AFTER HE LEFT. THE PLUMBER KEPT TELLING MOM NOT TO KEEP BENDING DOWN. IT WASNT THE BENDING DOWN THAT GOT MOM BUT THE STANDING UP AFTERWARDS. ANYWAY AT LEAST ITS FIXED AND THE BATHROOM IS CLEAN. MOM JUST KEEPS TAKING TYLENOL. THE WHOE BACK THING STARTED WHEN DAD ASKED MOM TO CLEAN UP SOME LEAVES ON THE SIDE OF THE YARD ON MONDAY. MOM DID BUT THEN TRIPPED ON A LOG BURIED UNDER ALL THE LEAVES AND FLIPPED OVER THE HILLSIDE.

I WANT TO GIVE MY MOST SINCERE APOLOGIES FOR NOT GET BACK TO EVRYBIRDY SOONER. I HAVE BEEN READING MY BLOGS BUT SINCE I CANT TYPE I HAD TO WAIT FOR MOM. I AM THRILLED TO BE QUEEN. I DIDNT THINK I COULD WIN IT. OF COURSE I WON BECAUSE OF ALL MY DEAR FIREND SUPPORT. BOO BOO WORKED HER LITTLE TAIL FEATHERS OFF HELPING ME AND WAS ECSTATIC OVER WINNING BOTD TODAY. PADDY AND PIDDY WERE OVER JOYED TO GET TO COME TO THE CASTE WITH US AND HAVE BEEN DANCING THE DAYS AWAY. WE ARE THOROUGHLY ENJOYING OUR TIME AT THE CASTLE AND EXTEND AN OPEN INVITIATION TO EVERYBIRDY TO COME AND JOIN US ANYTIME AND STAY AS LONG AS THEY WANT. ITS ON ME.

LOVE CORI

  Hi Spot
Thanks to Sugar for my royal portrait, and thanks to everyone who came to the castle for my celebration yesterday, too. It was sure a surprise and lots of fun.
Mom got to the pool for water aerobics this morning, YAY! She was happily surprised to see a substitute teacher there. Mom really likes this lady, as she does routines which are completely different from the usual, and gives everyone a great workout.
Polly continues to improve. In fact, this morning she was really hungry, ate more than she usually does. Her leg looks good, no swelling or hot spots, so that's a good sign. Mom will continue the PT with her and of course, continue with her meds as well.
I think spring has finally arrived! This morning we saw lots of things poking out of the ground, and mom even saw leaf buds on the lilac! That sounds promising, I think. Of course, it's April, so we can expect a lot of rain, but as Dixie's mom says, at least you don't have to shovel rain! Hope you are having a good day and getting lots of love. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, always in my heart, Willie,Chipper, 257319 for BOTM, Peppino Vote Chipper, 257319, BOTM, In Divo's memory & Falco, vote Chipper 257319, BOTM.
