Friendly reminder that the doves in the Efteling (Netherlands) are either gray, white, pink blue or green.

They are tame birds and painted with animal friendly dye. They are painted 4 times per year. They used to bathe them in the paint, which didn’t actually harm the animals but made them drowsy for a few days, but later animal welfare decided they could only be painted with brushes. The German factory that sold the paint went bankrupt and the Efteling bought all of their remaining paint. 

The painted doves are less likely to be attacked by birds of prey, so this method is also used by pigeon fanciers. It’s animal friendly and looks very cute so I thought I would share.
