Cloud and Romeo are beautiful young white Doves. They cannot be housed together as males will try to kill each other. They are very smart and Cloud saved himself from death by asking to walk into a friend's store. He was walking, tired, hungry and dehydrated. When our friend stepped away from the door, He walked in, pretty as you please.
Romeo was removed from the mouth of a cat and survived because some wonderful people saved him and had him treated by their vet every day for two weeks.
Domestic Doves cannot survive even 24 hours if released. They are bred in captivity, and are not wild birds at all. They are instant targets for hawks, cats, and other hungry carnivores.
Cloud and Romeo are very healthy, should have a girl friend to keep them company. Girls go together well, and so do girls and boys. Boys together definitely not.
They are both very capable of flight, and would instantly fly away if given the chance, and the next time they might not be so lucky or so smart. When they are lost, tired, and dehydrated they are sometimes so stressed that they forget how to drink their water and it has to be poured, to make a splashing sound to make them realize it is now available. Luckily Cloud and Romeo were not in that situation.
Someone with bird experience is required who will never let them escape or fly away again. They were most likely released at a wedding or funeral. Most of these "release" Doves fly to their deaths, as their color makes them an instant target for hawks, owls, and other hungry predators. Cloud was obviously going to die, had he not been smart enough to ask to be let inside.
They are unbelievable birds. To meet Cloud or Romeo, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org (also our Paypal sponsorship/donation email address)
