Hey! So first off, wishing for you guys to get out of quarantine soon and that everyone recovers fully! I was curious about your doves as we hear a lot about your beautiful pidges all the time. The genetics of domesticated breeds and such fascinates me and I was curious, are the ringneck doves that you breed domesticated?

Yes!

I talk a lot more about pigeons because there is just SO much complexity to them!

But my understanding of ringnecks is actually much more complete because *they* are my actual specialty. ^v^

Now, what we know as the Ringneck Dove, Streptopelia risoria, does not, and has NEVER existed in the wild!

They are an offshoot of the African Collared Dove, Streptopelia roseogrisea (shown below) bred exclusively towards docility and confinement tolerance.

Ringneck doves were actually domesticated the same time pigeons were, but Pigeons’ ability to free roam, forage, and faithfully return lead them to be domesticated in a VERY different way from pretty much any other animal.

Ringnecks were domesticated in a much more conventional way.

African Collard Doves have NO homing sense what so ever, so they could not be raised in a dovecote or allowed to forage the way pigeons were.

Like Pigeons, the African Collared Doves were also taken as peeps into captivity (Adult ACD are INSANELY fast fliers and prone to stress themselves to death in captivity)

They mature a little faster than pigeons, but if taken at two weeks, African Collared Dove peepers are feathered enough to thermoregulate, juuust beginning to take their first hopping test flights, and most importantly: Learning to self feed! 

At that age, they hand tame quite easily.

A clever, skittish, agile adult ACD that didn’t tame completely could time their escape attempts and rush an opening cage door faster than their keeper could react, leaving the least clever, skittish, and agile birds behind to live and breed under human care.

After thousands of years of breeding exclusively for docility and confinement tolerance, the Ringneck as we know it today has lost pretty much ALL survival instincts.

When released at weddings, funerals, and canned hunts, they usually just fly in a straight line until they hit something or wear out.

They have very poor flight stamina, and while they can fly VERY fast and make quite a distance in a single areal sprint, they can’t stay up for very long.

They are completely helpless outside of human care, so i you find one unattended, it DESPERATELY needs help!

The wild birds you see on occasion in the US that look like Ringnecks are actually a close, but not even remotely domesticated relative: the Eurasian Collared dove Streptopelia decaocto .

For comparison, here is Archimedes, one of my Ringneck Cocks.

Both species are about the same size, but the Eurasian Collared Dove is slightly larger and lighter.

A few ECD escaped after being imported into the US and have proven incredibly invasive, outcompeting the much smaller native Mourning 

and White Winged doves 

for food and nesting spaces.

anonymous asked:

I never knew until I found your blog that the three birds I see searching for food in our front yard are Ringnecks. It's interesting to read about them here and seeing them outside everyday. I thought they were weird, small, oddly skiddish pigeons before! They are cute though!

Nope.

Those are Eurasian Collared Doves. (Streptopelia decaocto)

Ringnecks (Strepropelia risoria) do not and have never existed outside captivity.
They are the domesticated descendent of the African Collared dove.

ECD were imported by aviculturists into the US, but became incredibly invasive when a few escaped or were freed.

The two species are nearly identical at a glance, but Ringnecks are more brown and ECD are lighter and more grey.
