Housing: Ringnecks can be kept and bred in cages as small as 2 feet square
Loudness: Do have a loud continuous coo that some find calming
Notes: Ringnecks are a wildly popular pet, due to their calm nature and inability to bite, but also because they are very low maintenance birds and do not require as much care or socialization as other birds might. However, that should not diminish the quality of care that they receive.
Breeding Notes: In the wild, Ringneck Doves build nests low to the ground in foliage, but in captivity a small wicker basket anchored to a cage will serve just as well. They will lay at least two or three times a year, with two eggs, on average, in each clutch, with the eggs being laid over the course of a few days. They are incubated for fourteen days, and after hatching, are fed a substance called "pigeon milk" that the parents secrete in their crops. After a week, the parents add seed to the milk, and after three weeks the babies have been weaned off of the milk and grown accustomed to seed. They will continue to live off of their parents for another week as they slowly gain independence.
