We found each other at the Panthers football field.I was lost and all alone.Still a baby.My mommy and my skin brother Kevin found me and I found them.I was so scared I walked up to my big frother Kevin and my mommy.Kevin picked me up.My mommy and Kevin fell in love with me.And they brought me to my home.I was so hungry and cold my mommy fed me and held me close to her all night long to keep me warm.I never would have made it by myself in the cold night.And I could have been stomped down by those big football players who couldn't see me in the dark...I'm now with my family where I'm loved and protected.We are so bonded.I am so happy to be part of the family I am meant to be with...Now Im as tough as nails heehee...

  Hi, Panther
That's too bad about the forecast changing. Mom looked at ours and Tue for us is 'few showers' which basically isn't rain. We'll continue to do the 'tiel rain dance.

The Sharks played their LA rivals, the Kings. We eggspect the entire series to be a big battle, however last night the Kings faltered and the Sharks won 6-3! Yippee!!!

  Hi,Panther
Two days of rain are forecast? That means a tad more likely to occur than if only one day. Haven't heard any predictions of rain here, but mom hasn't listened that closely either. Be good if it did though. Temps here continue to hover in the 70s.

We'll continue the 'tiel rain dance to keep in practice and maybe ensure your area at least might see some.

Sharks play tonight. We eggspect a battle of a game.

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.

Whew, we had a cooldown of sorts yesterday as our upper 70s dropped back to the low 70s. So much better we think. Rain in your forecast? Think we need to keep up with the 'tiel rain dance then. We know it worked for Stormy and flock as they had a day or two of rain.

  Hi, Panther
Think the first playoff game for the Sharks will be on Thu. Not sure, but think the format is two games at home, three away and the last two at home, but only if the series goes to 7 games. We hope the Sharks win it in 4 and advance to the next round though.

We continue to be in the 70s, but some are low 70s and some are upper 70s, but with a cool breeze still able to open the windows and not need of the a/c. (Only needed that when the temps went over 80.)

Glad your mom is feeling better. The heat bothers our mom too. She has to be in the a/c when it is hot out or she'll melt.

We got our derby pics made and entered the hat contest. Looking forward to seeing other pics and voting on our faves.

  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.

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.

We cooled off back to 70 yesterday. So much nicer spring temps we think. Hopefully you'll cool down there as well.

The Sharks played last night. It took almost the entire first period before the parronts could figure out which station was airing the game. The one listed was showing something else! They won! Yippee!! There's one last game tonight and then playoffs begin next week.

  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, Panther
93??!! Horrors! It is spring! That is wayyyy too high. We are fortunate to have dropped back to the 70s yesterday, whew! Was so much nicer out and could have the windows open. (Hope your temps drop and your mom feels better.)

The Sharks lost their game on Sat, not sure if we told you that and the team ahead of 'em won theirs so yesterday's game was crucial for the Sharks to have any chance of winning the division but since they lost the division title is going to the Ducks. The Sharks will face the Kings in the first round of playoffs but two more regular season games remain and not sure if all the playoff spots are determined yet or not.

Not surprised the Lakers owners are wanting a new coach. They are too good a team to be wallowing in the depths. Hopefully they will turn it around next season.

Okay, Stormy's flock is ready, your flock is ready, we're ready for the 'tiel rain dance. The 'tiels of the three flocks gather and listen to the drum beat and begin to dance and scream for rain.

  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.

  Hi, Panther
91! Yuck! That's summer temps! We had around 81 yesterday and that was warm enough. As far as we're concerned that is too warm for spring as well.

The Sharks play tomorrow. They face the team that's a point ahead of 'em, the Ducks. Hopefully they win as they would love to be take over first place. Thanks for 'tiel screaming with us.

Okay, time to do the 'tiel rain dance to cool things off. Stormy and flock is waiting for us and your flock to join in and think we need some drums to keep the beat? We got one around here somewhere...

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.

  Hi, Panther
Arrrghhhhh! We know we're no longer pirates, but we're 'tiel screaming at the Sharks for losing. They played miserably and lost without getting a single goal! Yikes! Good thing they already secured a playoff spot. Only 3 more games to go to end the season. (Are the Lakers gonna end up in last place? We'll echo you, poor guys!!)

Oh, no hot temps are returning? We got into the mid 70s yesterday after having mid 60s on Sat. With a cool breeze both felt nice. It is way too early for any temps near 90!

Okay, we've been chatting with Stormy and decided that we, your flock and his all need to do a 'tiel rain dance and get us CA birds more rain. Can you and Coconut lead us?

  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.

  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
