Pigeon Treats?

I was wondering if there is any certain treat that my pigeons would like well enough to ignore my presence just to get a chance at the treat?

Thank you.

One night, we looked and looked for Bernie, my little feral pigeon. We called his name and checked his usual haunts. Nothing.

You see, we'd left the hall door to our apartment (at that time) open...

When we entered the parrot's room, Judy's eyes fell upon a thistle seed bag. It was on its side and it was pulsing. Bernie's busy little bottom was bobbing rapidly up and down. Ping, ping, ping--he was crazy for thistle!

We laughed and let him indulge himself.

Pigeons are very much individuals. Our little hen, Cosmo, also a feral pigeon, can take or leave thistle...

Peanuts, dried split peas, thawed frozen veggies, safflower, sunflower--all are fair game for a discriminating pigeon. Have you tried "Spider Creatures?"

Members each have their stories. Rattle Carl's cage. His pigeon, Lucky, has some unusual favorites. Tea, anyone?

Terri's pigeon, Dinky, prefers her treats on the sly. Who, me?

My birds go nuts for regular black sunflower seeds. That and crackers. In the closest loft to me, his birds ignore them and want the corn. Ray's right, I guess it's a matter of preferance to them. However, my extremely tame male roller, named blacky, delights in getting a drink from my morning cup of coffee while I feed the second pen. . . .
