I've been looking into diamond doves for a while. I love the little toot toot noise they make like a toy train, and they are so pretty. I wonder how they are as pets, though? I have been told that they need to be in a couple or else they get lonely. Any one with experience in diamond or other types of doves as pets? How long do they live? Are they expensive to care for?

I've never owned birds before so I'm not really sure what I would be facing as a new bird owner. Any advice would be appreciated!

therenot realy a "take it out and hold it" kind of pet bird (though many do become quite hand tame na denjoy spending time with thier people...) but as a beautiful quiet pet, if you have the space to keep a pair i think they are gorgeous birds, no worries about eighbors complaining of noise and relitivly inexpensive to keep.

do a google search on diamond doves as pets and youll get thousands of hits

I've done a few Google searches and I enjoy it when people post them on Youtube. I'm glad to hear that they are quiet. How long do they live?
