"Hi all! I have what I believe is a ringneck dove -- wild, with a permanently broken wing, but otherwise seemingly in perfect health. We tried initially to take him/her ('Peet') to our vet, but they would not see a 'wild' bird. I live in a really remote area, two hours from a 'real' town (just moved here in Dec '12). We are happy to keep and care for Peet (we have horses, chickens, cats, dogs -- all spoiled and loved), I just want to make sure this bird is not miserable and bored. Peet's in a rectangle cage, with several perches made of natural wood that he hops around on. Feeding parakeet seed, supplementing with greens, a tiny bowl of grit and a small glass bowl of fresh water (changed twice a day) is available for him. The floor of the cage is solid, lined with newspaper and a light coating of alfalfa hay. Tried the bird bath, he's not interested. Millet sprays and cuttlebone hanging in the cage. He's tolerant of us but obviously still scared of us a bit -- less so than other birds might be, I'm sure. Any suggestions for keeping little Peet happy and entertained are welcome! Thank you."
