NO do not use rabbit pellets. Do you have a local feed store. Check there.

If you can't find Pigeon Pellets you can use Chicken Laying Pellets. Allot of people resist feeding pellets and I think it's a mistake. I feed all my breeders pellets when breeding. You need to try it and see for yourself. Go to this web site http://www.auspigeonco.com.au/ then to an article on feeding pellets. Pellets give a pigeon everything they need in a very balanced diet. When they have mixed grain they eat what they want not always what they need. People think that their birds will starve before they eat pellets. They say the same thing about their dog. Once they eat them for a while they don’t like grain. Just try pellets with some of your breeders and see the difference in their babies.

This reminds of the story of the old fox hunter. He had about 20 walker hounds and they were always in tip top shape. One day as group of hunters were standing around jawing
One asks the old man what he feed his dogs to keep them in such good condition. The old man replied “I feed my dogs all the Green Collards that they can eat”. Another fellow spoke up and said “hunt’n dogs won’t eat collards”. The old man replied “Yes they will after about 3 weeks”.

I fed pellets for a while back in the day. It was nice and simple, cheaper withe waste. However, talk about a mess! They drank about 3 times as much water and **** runny like fruit bats and with an extra special odor. That isnt going to be a problem for some but it was for me. Nothing fun about any kind of pigeon poop but that was a whole heck of a lot worse. Now i have heard of a low sodium pelletthat cuts this down but i dont know the brand.

the problem is the Feed store is 50 mins away from me and i cant go there everyday since i'm busy with school and work. I have Couple pet stores around me such as Pet smart & petco. I'll look around this weekend at the pet stores and see if they carry any pigeon pellets. if not i guess ill get some when i go to the feed store. and thanks for the helpful info everybody i'll make sure not to feed Rabbit pellets to my birds .
