About White Doves
Doves have been domesticated for many centuries. Their ability to return home from long distances has long baffled ALL scientists. No one quite knows how they find their way home, but they think it's possibly linked to the Sun's position and the Earth's magnetic fields at any given time, although memory may also play a role.
Our Release Doves are all Columba Livia -- the same kind of bird that served historically as homing and racing pigeons, and are commonly known as Rock Doves. Our display doves or "Love Doves" are pure white and they are the doves of the Bible.
Doves are loyal, gentle and devoted to each other when they choose a mate. Two babies are usually produced, both parents care for the babies, and they feed them "crop milk."
Doves hold a special place in the hearts of mankind, and their image harkens back to biblical times when Noah released a dove to help him find land. What better tribute than to include them in your celebration!
Our doves live in a Loft that is specially constructed for their comfort. They are allowed to fly free several times a week and enjoy being released at events where they will fly straight home to their comfy loft. If you would like a tour of the loft, that can be easily arranged.
