Hello,
I am considering getting a diamond dove as a pet. My boyfriend has parakeets (budgies) who are loud and squawky, and I can't stand them. I read on a diamond dove website that they can be very noisy as well. Do you find this to be true? I recently met a parakeet who was very sweet and quiet, and the people at the pet store said it was because they had gotten him super young, and the manager had been training him. Should I try to get a very young dove as opposed to buying an adult in the store?

I ask because I don't think I can handle having a super noisy bird of my own, and would hate to regret my decision to get one.
Thanks!

    I have Blue Diamond Doves and they are not noisy. They do coo at times which is a soothing sound. They are easy to take care of.

    I have 4 diamond doves. They are not noisy at all! If anything their cooing is kind of soothing. They just "coo, coo" and not too often. I love them!

    I've had a pair for about a month. They make noise but it's not anything like parakeets make. It's much quieter and peaceful. It reminds me of a tiny train whistle. :) They are great. My female laid her first egg today.

    They are not loud like parakeets are. The males coo's ARE loud, but they are not annoying either. And they are not constant, only a couple times a day at the most! Females are not very loud, they only let out the occasional coo.
    Young or old, doesn't really matter :)

    I didn't know they could be so noisy until I ended up with them! What started out as 5 back in early 2010 has now become 17 through unplanned breeding and rescuing sad looking birds from pet shops.
    The males CAN be very piercing; if one starts the mating call all the others respond and try to 'outshout' each other as it were.
    You can imagine my joy come summer when it starts getting light at 4am - earplugs are sometimes necessary as despite shutting them downstairs with the living room door shut their noise just carries throughout the building. Still love them though!

    Diamond doves are not at all a noisy bird. they coo very softly and I hear them only at morning and it's very soothing and of low voice.

    Spray milley works fine but if you really want something that they love i would suggest small mealworms. They absolutely love them. You can put the mealworms in the fridge to keep them fresh for a few weeks, good luck. Dont forget, mealworms are pretty fat so dont feed to much. 3 or 4 a day per dove is more than enough

    LEA S. They meant what are the diamond's natural predators, not what are nice treats for a DD, lol. But yeah, spray millet is good, so are sunflower seeds, mashed up
    Hard boiled eggs,(for anyone interested in that, please make sure to look it up first to find out the proper amount supposed to be given to them, because too much egg will make her/him sick.) nuts, greens, and some fruits. Have a nice day to whoever reads this:):):)
