About Our Doves/The Five W's of UNITED DOVES L.L.C.
Symbols of Love, Peace, & Purity
From the beginning of time, doves have represented love, peace, purity, and fidelity. You may often hear the sweet sound of the doves cooing to each other.
These birds are referred to many as White Doves, White Angels, White Doves of Angelic Presence, Holy Spirit Doves, White Flying Messengers of Peace, along with many more emotional expressions and associations.
All of the United Doves are white doves, and all are important to us. We keep these doves vaccinated as to provide the best health for them as we possibly can. We also invest many hours of training and care to ensure the well-being of each dove.

Rock, Fantail, & Turtle Doves
Rock Doves The doves we release are called Rock Doves, otherwise known as white racing homing pigeons. They can navigate home using magnetic fields. A great deal of scientific research has been done on this subject, and we now know that magnetite is found in the birds brains and their beaks. This magnetite helps them navigate home from many miles away.
Throughout time, these doves have been used in wars to relay messages and thus have saved people's lives. Today they are most often used in the growing business of providing dove releases for special events.
Fantail Doves Fantail Doves are beautiful creatures, a fancier breed of doves used for display only. The doves received their name due to their tails, which fan out. These doves also have feathers on their feet.
Turtle Doves The Turtle Dove, also known as the Love Dove or White Ring Neck Dove, is smaller than the others. Also for display only, these doves have a calm and peaceful nature.
