Does anyone know the basics of what to do when caring for a dove? A friend of mine found one in her yard and rescued it just in time to prevent it from becoming a kitty cat dinner bite. It appears to be someone's escaped pet, since it steps readily onto people's hands without trying to fly away or bite at all. I used to do parrot rescue, so I found a suitable cage and some seed to get her started, but I never worked with doves before. The bird appears to be more perky this morning than it was last night, preening and stretching its wings, so I guess that must be a good sign. Do doves need cage toys like hookbills? Do they eat fruit, veggies, proteins, and grains like hookbills? Are there other considerations? I know Google is my friend, but I don't have a lot of time and I'm still not feeling well, so I hoped maybe I'd find an expert among all of you fabulous mamas.
