FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
can I incorporate a dove release into my event?
We consult with every client and will be glad to offer suggestions
on how best to incorporate an outdoor dove release into your event. A white dove
release on the front steps of the church is an impressive symbolic and
enchanting ending to a wedding ceremony. A white dove release at a memorial
service helps bring closure, and helps ease the pain, while honoring the memory
of our loved ones. Indoor portions of our event can be enhanced with our
beautiful and decorative display cages containing to white doves.
happens to the doves after they are released?
A miracle of nature enables them to find their way home from great
distances. Keen senses of hearing, smell, sight and the ability to read magnetic
fields are thought to be some of the tools they use to complete their successful
the doves harmed?
No. In fact, they are capable of flying much further than we are
willing to send them. Some exceptional birds have been known to return home from
over 600 miles.
are the doves trained?
training begins at a very young age, about 3 months old. The doves are placed on
the landing board of their loft (home) and they quickly become accustomed to
their surroundings. Slowly they are put in baskets and taken on tosses (training
sessions) to build muscle and endurance. Once trained these athletes are able to
fly many miles to the home that they have come to love.
is the difference between dove and pigeon?
The white racing homing pigeons we see today, used in dove releases,
are descended from the rock dove. These beautiful athletes in the sky have come
about through manís intervention using selective breeding over thousands of
years. Our white homing pigeons are selectively bred and are not the same as the
pigeons you might see in city parks.
the doves clean and will they leave droppings on my guest as they fly overhead?
Doves love to bathe and keep themselves clean. On the day of your
special event, before the birds are loaded up, they will have taken their daily
baths. They are not fed until after your event so they wonít embarrass
themselves or your guests.
