Description

Description: Ring-necked Doves (Streptopelia risoria) for sale, also known as The Barbary dove, Ringed Turtle Dove, Ring-necked Dove, and Sacred Dove, are extremely tame and will sometimes sit on your shoulder, cuddle up and fall asleep. They are valued for pet therapy and magicians, and are a wonderful family pet. Lifespan is typically 12 to 20+ years and their soft cooing will make you smile! Ringneck Doves are very clean and delightful birds who love to bathe, enjoying either a bath in a large bowl of water or a shower or a misting with a light spray of clean water. 

Geography: Although its true origin is unknown, the Ring-necked Dove (Streptopelia risoria) is generally thought to be descended from the African Ring Dove or African Collared Dove Streptopelia roseogrisea. It had been kept for over 2000 years, brought to Europe in the second half of the sixteenth century from Sudan. Described by Linnaeus in 1756 as Columba risoria, it is only known to exist as a domesticated bird.

Song / Call: Click to hear to listen to the sweet Ring-necked Dove

Size / Weight: 12" 

Sexing: Monomorphic (visually difficult to sex).

Temperament: Perhaps best known for its gentle temperament, a Ring-necked Dove makes a great pet that is sweet natured and almost naturally tame. They are very easy to care for and will do well in either a cage or in an aviary, being kept as a single bird or as a pair. Once a White Dove is comfortable with its home and its family, it can be handled by adults and children alike. They are amazing therapy pets!

Breeding: Ring-necked Doves are easy to breed, but are not usually community breeders unless there is a lot of room. They will do best in their own cage and it can be relatively small. They are rather flimsy nest builders so it is best to provide them with an open nesting container.

Lifespan:  12-20+ years

Diet: Dove SeedAustralian Blend GoldenfeastMillet SprayMineral GritCuttlefish Bone, washed greens

DNA Testing

If there is no gender option listed for a bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic', which means we’re unable to determine gender without purchasing DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $149 per bird to guarantee preferred gender. DNA testing may add an additional 3-6 plus weeks to estimated delivery time to allow for gender results. See our FAQs for more info.

He's Perfect!

Dové is a perfect new addition to my dove cote. He is sweet, soft, gets along with the other diamond doves easily. Beautiful song. He had 0 stress coming here. Thank you Finch Farm!

So far so good but

I received my bird ahead of schedule (about 2 weeks vs the 4 week estimate) and without issue. So far everything is going well. Lazarus is happily cooing now and settled in, but I have found that the bird I received is not what I ordered. I ordered an S. risoria (Barbary dove) and received an S. decaocto (Eurasian Collared dove). The only key differences are their calls (S. decaocto has a distinctly different call than S. risoria, more of a 'hoo-hooooo hoo' than the trilling 'hoo-h-o-o-o-o-o-o-oooo' that S. risoria demonstrates, and S. decaocto does not make the 'laughing call' upon landing that S. risoria makes. These things aside, they're more or less the same bird and can even cross breed readily. I am deducting 1 star though for accuracy in their breeding/shipping, given the fact that I have a different species (similar looking) dove than what I ordered.
