Grains, Fuel, and Pigeon Racing


In case someone is interested, here is a link to a very informative article on proper feeding of pigeons during the various stages. Ie. moulting, breeding, racing. There are 3 more links in the article explaining in detail.

That is a very good article, and also an excellent link that has some very good info on pigeon diseases, egg binding, spraddle legs, and much much more.

If this link hasn't already been flagged I will flag it.

I appreciate you sharing this link.

Here....want to make your life more simple. Avail yourself of the research undertaken by Purina, and feed your birds a pellet. The down side is you don't have to come up with six different other things to feed, and 14 different feed schedules.

Here is a recent article I came across :

Here is a video I made concerning the Purina Pellets:

I was not as serious about racing as some members on this site.
I fed only Purina Gold pelletts for the last few years I had birds.
The birds were good for 300 mile races. Maybe did not win the race--but came home in good times.
When you get in your late 60's and have raced for 31 years--you will look for easier ways to keep birds and enjoy them.

I have always been in favor of pellets myself , total nutrition of every bird in the loft is what it all comes down to for me , feeding grains is great but some are pickier then others so with pellets you never have that problem so kudos to all that use them ,using grains on the side are a great treat as well

The only down side I see with pellets is our truck feeds only grains on a holdover. I am concerned that if the YB's have only been exposed to pellets they may not eat properly to fuel themselves for a 350 or 400 which is the typical "holdover" station. We are not allowed to provide food for the truck, that is considered interfering.

I would like to see the ingredients panel on the Purina pigeon pellets-if they are available.
