I keep two species of small doves, diamond doves and zebra doves.
Diamond doves come from Australia originally. They have been domesticated for a long time, with the result that there are several colours and mutations now available for those interested in keeping this small dove. Diamond doves will breed happily if provided with a suitable environment.
Zebra doves are found across the far east and after introduction by humans, in places like Hawaii. These doves are larger than diamond doves, but as well established as diamond doves in captivity. Gentle and shy, these beautiful birds, live and breed contentedly in captitivity.
I board small pets for £1 per animal per day. The money raised for boarding goes directly to the education charity Porridge and Rice that works among the extreme poor living in the Nairobi slums.
In addition, if you have small animals that you no longer can care for, regardless of the reason, I will happily take them in and rehome them. If I cannot find them a new, good home, they will live their days out at The Farm at 64.
