HAND RAISED DOVES FOR SALE
If you need a friendly dove bird, the best course
of action is to purchase a dove that has been trained from the moment it was
hatched until it takes its first flight. We breed and hand-raise all of our
doves and are here to assist you with the process of obtaining a dove of your
Our process of hand-raising doves takes approximately 4 to 6 weeks and the doves can be trained individually or as a pair. When working with baby doves, it is difficult to determine what their gender will be or the color that their feathers will develop as they mature. For this reason, we are unable to guarantee the gender or color of a dove that is purchased as an individual.
How We Raise Our Doves:
Once the babies have hatched, they are kept warm and comfortable as they mature for another two weeks until they have learned to open their eyes and begin growing their beautiful feathers. During this time, we delicately nurture them and feed them a nutrient-rich diet of crop milk and eventually seeds. Approximately one week after the dove's hatch, they are fed by hand and have daily interactions and playtime to allow them time to get accustomed to being handled by humans. Although we hand-raise them, we cannot guarantee that each bird will be friendly during human interactions.
When fully matured, doves can be purchased individually or as a pair. We will have you sign a service acknowledgment at the time of purchase before we begin the buying process. The first four weeks of care and rearing come with a cost of $500 for an individual dove or $750 for a pair. If you require a longer training period, a fee of $75 will be charged for each additional week until your bird is ready to be sent to your home.
When you are prepared to make your purchase, we will hold a credit card authorization form on file, and an upfront fee of $50 will be paid, with the remainder being charged the day before the bird is shipped to your home.
Due to weather and housing conditions, we are unable to raise doves during the cold winter months. Unfortunately, this means that you may be placed on a waiting list for up to 6 months before receiving your doves; however, we will keep you updated and informed throughout this process.
Considerations for Buyers:
Birds are wild animals, and we are unable to guarantee with 100% certainty that your bird will be friendly with humans, although we will do everything in our power to make sure you receive a human-friendly dove.
We cannot be held accountable for any issues that may arise during the buying process, however, we will provide a refund if your purchase is canceled within 72 hours of the original order date.
