    Okay, so Adrian and Jayden had eggs and they hatched and they've seemed fine... but I had to clean their cage out --it was getting really poopy-- and so had to put their babies back in the nest so I could take out the grate.

    Has anyone here tried pistachio nuts with their racing pigeons? Yesterday I bought some bird food at wal-mart made by 3-D products. It is a mix of sunflower kernels, peanuts, pistachio nuts, and pumpkin seed. Has anyone used this product for supplementing fat into their race mix?

    Hello, I got all the grains finally to make my pigeon seed/feed and it was actually pretty inexpensive because I was able to only buy 5 lbs to 10 lbs each which saved me but I couldn't find any MAPLE PEAS anywhere at my bird feed stores or any feed store for that matter!!
