Housing: Single birds kept as pets should be given cages of at least 13 by 15 by 17 inches, with bars spaced a maximum of half an inch apart
Loudness: Quiet birds
Notes: As diamond doves swallow their seeds whole, they should have access to grits, which help them digest their food.
Cages should not have grates above the floor, as they walk around a lot. As such, they should also be given as much space to roam in the cage or enclosure as possible. They should also have access to perches placed far enough apart as to allow safe flight.
Diamond doves can make gentle pets if tamed and given attention. However, they should only be kept alone if the owner is in a position to provide them with as much attention as one would provide a parrot. If the owner is unsure that he or she would have that kind of time, diamond doves are better kept with at least one companion.
