We've had a ringneck dove for 30 years! He has always been happy, jumping perch to perch, cooing. The best is when he giggles, he does it when family argues. Breaks up the argument every time. Recently he has started a strange ritual. He lifts his head straight back onto his back.He acts like he is dizzy or losing balance. Then it stops and he acts normal again.Any ideas what might be wrong with him?

    Hi, Kim! I had a wonderful ring-neck named Chatterbox for 30 years. He was my pet from childhood through children of my own. He would interrupt us with his laugh much the same way. I’m convinced he thought he was a person! In the last two years of his life, he began behaving as you described, twisting his neck to rest on his back as if he was experiencing dizziness. He progressed this way for several months and then began to actually lose his balance on occasion; it would often take him by surprise and startle him, and he would end up flailing around his enclosure trying to regain his bearings. I ended up removing his perches so he would fall or beat up his wings. A trip to our vet (a local avian vet who specializes in doves) confirmed that he was experiencing neurological/balance problems that are common to birds of advanced age, particularly doves. We did a course of antibiotics to rule out any kind of infection (which can sometimes cause similar symptoms), but that was not the issue. As his balance problems became more severe, he kept his neck in a 180* position constantly, making it impossible (and dangerous) to fly. For about the last year of his life, I moved him out of his enclosure and into a large plastic bin lined with towels on the sides to protect his wings if he began flailing around. As he became less mobile, I would tuck him in a small bin wrapped with a scarf at night to keep him comfortable and calm, in case he lost his balance as he started to fall asleep (a common occurrence). He still loved to be held and handled and we just had to adapt accordingly so that he didn’t injure himself if he fell over. I wish you the best with your beloved pet!

Hi I have two red caps, they were fine when I put them in the tank but now they are floating in the corner of the tank. They are still eating and very responsive if you switch the light on. I'm treating them for tail rot at the moment but they don't seem to be getting better. Anybody help me what I can do please?

Why is my ring neck dove not pecking at his cuttle bone? My zebra finches do it.

    He or she will do better with grit. Doves prefer grit.

    I once had a brown ring neck dove & a king pigeon. They both prefer crushed egg shell, charcoal & dove/pigeon & gravel
