These turtledoves do well in mixed aviaries, including cohabiting with smaller species. We recommend keeping more than a pair of turtledoves in you the aviary, preferably, without mixing with other species of turtledoves.
The favorite season of Rola Máscara de Ferro is the summer, with the sun and heat, but hates humidity.
For this species, it is recommended to have a night shelter well ventilated, heated during the winter.
These birds are far from shy when they are in an environment where they feel comfortable. They are domesticated with great speed.
The Rola Máscara de Ferro are not restless; on the contrary, they are very calm birds. They like to take a swim of sand to take care of their plume.
you must give them that opportunity, by putting on the floor of the aviary a ceramic dish filled with fine and clean sand. After bathing be sure to remove the dish, preventing the sand to get littered with possible droppings.
