Ringneck Doves Eggs
Ringneck Doves Eggs, Ringneck Doves lay two eggs which hatch after 14 days. The young are then fed by the parents what is called “crop milk.” Crop milk is produced in the crop of the parents and the young put their beaks inside the parents throats and slurp it down. Within a few days the parents add seed to the diet of the young. The young then leave the nest three to four weeks later. It is not uncommon to see some pairs lay all year beginning on a new clutch every six weeks. This really is not recommended because it is unhealthy for the birds. Feeding and taking care of young really takes its toll on the energy of the parents. After three or four clutches, the breeding for that year should stop by either removing nesting materials or separating the birds.
