Why Ring-Necked Doves?

With a lifespan of between five and 10 years, the independent ring necked dove offers those who love birds but have little time to spend caring for a pet an ideal option. These birds don’t require much attention from their owner and eat a common wild bird seed mix.

Ringneck doves reach breeding age at about 12 months of age. They lay about two eggs per clutch and may lay up to five broods per year.

Ringneck Dove Habitats

The ring necked dove needs a lofted area about six to 30 feet above ground to build its breeding nest. It forages on the ground for food. In captivity, this means you’ll need to place their waterer and feeder on the ground of their coop or loft.

Stromberg’s Chickens offers plans for poultry coops and coop kits with all the materials needed. Either of these options lets you build a bird sanctuary for your ring necked dove or dove pair.
