I have two doves but I can not tell what their gender is. I know that at leat one of them are female; they had a egg. Can anyone tell me a good way to tell the differences between the gender?. I have looked it up on the net, but to no avail. I know that in a few days I can candle the egg to see if it is fertile, and then I would have my answer, but I would dearly like to see what you all think. Thanks

Pair of Doves - Which is female and which is male?
I also have doves and I keep them in pair in separate cages. They are given to me in pairs (male and female) by my nephew but I myself do not know which one is female and which one is male. But if they have lain eggs already then I think you can now know their particular Danger. As I've experienced the one which laid eggs which is of course the female is the most restless of the two. Once you start feeding them, the female dove will start to be alert and will even bite your hands for feat that you will cause harm to her eggs. Now if your female dove does not behave that way when she has eggs then I have no more way to tell you.
