Thanks Mike...and thanks for all your help about this. I can't wait to see it. It is a Christmas gift, so I am not allowed to open it yet! The package came Wednesday, so I think they want to torture me! Smile

I received my Lipan Dove Frame, and all I can say is, "Wow"! It is really well-made. I am so glad I found it and was able to get it!

Now I am excited to try it out with my doves. I have a balloon-to-dove, so I know the basics of using a dove frame, but it came with no instructions and I am wondering if anyone has any tips to share. I have never used, or even thought about using my balloon-to-dove with 2 doves, so right there is one difference.

I have not tried loading it yet, but I am a little uncertain about using 2 doves. Is there a best way to load the doves? (Same direction, opposite direction, etc.) I'm thinking it may depend on the doves and performer, or it may not make any difference at all, but I know experience is the best teacher and some of you probably know many tips and tricks that would be helpful.

I have watched several videos on youtube, and it seems they all show different ways of holding the frame and making the production. I have picked out a couple of my favorites that I am going to begin with, but I would appreciate any tips you pros may have on using this prop.

Thank you!

Does it come with a lock?

Yes....a really good one.

I bought my Lipan Frame used so it had no instructions. That's about the only thing I was disappointed with. Not that instructions would have helped much....they probably wouldn't have....but I just like to keep instructions to my props....especially the better ones. Of course it may have shed some light or given some tips on loading, and that would have been helpful.

I have not brought my doves inside to work with them in the Dove Frame yet. I have a Balloon-To-Dove that is basically the same size, but I have only used it with one dove. I am wondering how difficult it is going to be to use the Dove Frame with two doves. It sure seems like it is going to be a tight fit. Is there a 'best' way to load the doves?

The one Rich Marrotta used was his own idea. He came up with it, had it built and used it for many years. After he appeared on a television show several knock offs popped up on the market. Rich is not happy about that
