Notes: Diamond doves should be kept in pairs or groups, unless one is willing to invest time and effort in taming them. If tamed, they do make good pets, and should be given as much attention as one would give a pet parrot.
The cage should have perches set far enough apart so as to allow safe flight.
Diamond doves should be provided with grits. They swallow their seeds whole, and the grits aid in digestion.
