​about The doves

We ​have a flock of over 300 Doves, all of which are free to come and go as they please during daylight hours. The only times they are locked in, is when they are receiving treatments to prevent illnesses these birds are prone to. We breed our own stock and these are handled from day 1. We train them to return home following their release at your event. Their nutrition is precise as to their needs and changes seasonally, and when they are breeding. The balance of grain is also adapted according to their flying schedule.

We care deeply for our flock, they are part of our family; and when you see the condition of our birds, you will see strong evidence that they are extremely well cared for.

In all events where our doves are requested, there is a time limit on how long they can be confined to their cages. Like us humans, some days they love going to work, other times they don't, so we always take many extra doves with us to each service, just in case any are having an off day - then we can simply swap for a different dove if needed.


Every one of our Doves is a Rock Dove and trained to home. Each one is registered with the WHPU, and Rod is a full member of the organization and has been for over 30 years. Understanding of how to train the Doves takes many years to get right, as does the knowledge needed to keep them fit and healthy. With over 55 years combined experience, Rod & Lynne are experts in their field, and belonging to a tight knit community of like minded people through the WHPU. These Doves were part of our family for 21 years before we started our business - we didn't buy the Doves just to make money from them....they are loved.
