Description: Orange Pearl dove is also know as Streptopelia Risoria.
The Orange Pearl Dove has orange-brown feathers along the chest, head, and back, with a white band along the back of the neck and a white tail and flight feathers. The wing feathers are generally white with orange-brown scalloping along the edges. Dark eyes, with pink-red feet and a tan beak.
Ringneck doves are extremely common pets. Males make a melodic "cooing" sound. If a dove is a pearl mutation, the 'pearl' refers to the pattern on the feathers. A pearl feather has two colours, one of which presents scalloping around the edges. By contrast, a pied mutation involves having some white feathers and some pigmented feathers. The white feathers are solid white, and the pigmented colours are solidly coloured.

If there is not a gender option listed for this bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic,' which means we’re unable to determine gender without DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $99 per bird to be tested. If you want us to do our best without DNA testing, just make a note in the comment section of your order letting us know your preference. Please note that if no DNA testing is ordered, we are unable to guarantee a preferred gender but will do our best. See our FAQs for more info.
