This eurasian collared dove was raised from a hatchling by a pair of elderly ladies who had to give him up to our Sanctuary and he's now about 3 years old and very accustomed to humans taking care of him. His whole name is Mordecai Fluff Dove, mostly called 'fluff' for short. He used to live by himself for a time in this cage he was photographed in, (first picture)but he is currently living with his Very own Missus, Mrs. Peaches Fluff Dove. Mordecai Fluff is a very Contented Bird right now! As of February, 2007, he has become a Daddy bird and is assiduously caring for a chick (off the old block, his dove-chick's coloring looks almost just like his!) The second picture shows mr. Mordecai and Mrs. Fluff Doves with their handsome new chick still under his mama up in the upper left corner of the photo. We won't want to separate this couple, so Peaches' and Mordecai's adoption fee is $40.00 but we want at least two references from the potential adoptor that the birds will be going to a good home and kept well, as a pet, not released. Fluff has no survival skills and cannot survive as wild .
