Description

Identification: White Ring-necked Doves, (Streptopelia risoria) 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! Ring-necked 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.  

* White Ringed-necked Doves should not be confused with the White Homing Pigeon as they are different birds. The White Ringed-necked Dove should not be released at ceremonial events such as weddings as they do not fly well, and will mainly flutter about without great "homing" abilities. It is the White Homing Pigeon that is often released at ceremonial events such as weddings.  

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 the sweet White Dove

Size / Weight: 12" 

Sexing: Monomorphic (visually difficult to sex).

DNA Testing 

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.

Temperament: Perhaps best known for its gentle temperament, a Ring-necked Dove makes a great pet that is sweet natured and almost naturally tame. These adorable and gentle doves are not only have a very sweet gentle nature but are also 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. 

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 Seed, Millet Spray, Mineral Grit, Cuttlefish Bone, washed greens

FANTASTIC!

Lost one of my doves and my lone was was sad....ordered 2 from Finch Farm and the packaging and travel across the entire United States from Washington State to Lake Placid, NY was amazing with great care taken to assure they came safe and sound. They are beautiful and still shy, but that will change, and I am so grateful for their love and care. Herbie and Helen!!....xo

White doves

Recently received my 3 white doves ( for my magic act, my old doves are retired). They arrived in a timely manner and in good health. The shipping box was awesome, as it had build in perch, water bowl, and even heating system to keep the birds cozy in transit. The box was insulated and had filter like vents. I will use this company again in the future. I also like the follow up emails with care instructions for my new feathered friends. Leigh Hotz Wizardoffun.com
