Anyone know what type of bird this is?! Seems simple but I don't know

I would say this bird is a little on the fat side. Grey with some black spots down closer to bottom. Lighter underneath color but still a grey color. Small black beak.

These are Grey Doves, They multiply like mice, guppies, rabbits!. Mate for life. I have a pair that nest in one of our hanging baskets all during the spring - late Fall. Can lay as many as 3 eggs at each incubation, and can have 6-8 batches per season. I have actually earned their trust (having to pick up the baby one's after falling out of the hanging baskets to place back in. They actually let me stroke their head(pet them) . Super aggressive eaters though they can empty a bird feeder in a matter of 2-3 days. And travel in large flocks.
Which is problematic. I do like to see several species of birds feed . Cardinals, Blue-jays, Sparrow Finches Woodpeckers, Parakeets, esp hummingbirds, (which their nector feeders are safe, of course, from other birds)..
