A friend of mine is rehoming his ringneck dove to me next month, but I just heard that it can be dangerous to keep other birds with birds that produce dust, such as my cockatiel. Would it be a bad idea to keep the dove in the same room as my tiel? If I can't keep them in the same room he will need to find another home where he won't be in danger of pulminary hypertension. Would this be a potential problem?

I’d be thinking doves are as dusty as pigeons which are possibly the same or worse than tiels.

If you are housing them indoors maybe best to ensure you have an air purifier for your lung health.

I keep a pigeon and a conure and a canary in separate cages in one room but run an Oransi air purifier 24/7 (full blast overnight and on low during the day). I also have to sweep under the pigeon’s care twice a day. The white dust they give off (same as doves) is a nuisance. That being said, the pigeon is an amazing companion. Palomacy is a great resource for all things dove and pigeon. Best of luck.
