Hello, currently I have 2 budgies who are a joy to watch, but don't like to be to be held, which I understand. I really want a bird that I can hold and get along with though. Sadly, with my busy work schedule, I feel like getting a parrot would not be the right choice, for I know they are very needy. Thus, I know pigeons and doves are much lower maintenance, and are very affectionate, so I feel like that would be the better choice for a person like me. I know the physical difference between and pigeon and ring-neck dove, but can someone give me the difference between the two as pets? Which one do you think makes a better cuddle companion? Also, nobody seems to hand raise pigeons/doves here, so are parent raised pigeons/doves easy to hand tame? Thanks!!!
