Silky white Ringneck Dove - Domestic Streptopelia Risoria Bird

Silky white Ringneck Dove Domestic

Notable traits of the Silky white Ringneck Dove Bird: Domestic (Streptopelia Risoria)
Latin Name: Streptopelia Risoria
Common Name: Silky white Ringneck Dove
Description: All-over white feathers, with dark eyes, a pale pinkish-orange beak, and dark purple feet. Feathers have an unusual texture to them. Standard feathers have barbs (the side-by-side coloured strands that make up most of a feather) cling together, whereas in the silky mutation, the barbs do not cling to each other. This gives a 'hairy' or 'lacy' appearance.

Notes: Unlike other mutations, silky-feathered doves do not have the ability to fly, and therefore do not have to have their wing feathers clipped. Doves make great pets for kids, as they are unable to bite.
