my diamond dove female occasionally pulls feathers from the zebra's i have in cage with her.she just started this when i put a nest in the cage for them.i removed it and she laid one on the corner of the finch nest and another in the food dish.she lays them but rarely sits on them.
i realy would not like her to breed just yet and not if she is going to be mean about it.
what is wrong?

You can't breed a dove and a finch together! :scared:

why not seperate them permanatly!

i didn't breed a zebra finch to a dove.no one can do that.the little zebra finches are too young to know how to breed as of yet...howeaver,there is a male diamond dove in the cage with her.sorry if i didn't make that known :(

i did separate the little ones from the two diamonds.nest is removed but that will not stop her if she insists on laying in the food dish like last time.the older male zebra finches are now in with them and the lot of them as fine...

this site is a verry good site. but does not always give the info to your specific needs it happens to everyone,and personally i do not understand what you are asking if the dove is attacking your finch then why are they together? is the dove older or younger that the finch? we need more information be specific!!!
