Zebra Dove

Hatched on 31st August 2009 which coincides with the Malaysian independence day. For lack of a more suitable name, this bird shall be named Merdeka. Merdeka has been quiet most its growing time and recently been busy cooing softly. Sounds better than its father to my untrained ears. Unsure whether it's a male or female. Its the only bird I kept from my own breeding of a single pair last year. Nothing like raising your own doves and see their development.

Thought of giving up on breeding Zebra Doves, but was presented a pair a couple of weeks ago. An "A" male with a "B" female. Will have to think of a better alternative to keep the chicks later. A low maintenance method ;-)
