    So about a month ago I went to a feed store to get a nice big bag of feed for my doves for cheap. And I was worried about one thing when I came there and I have proven it true. The feed contained eggs i suppose and now I have maggots or larvae in the feed bag and I've been feeding my doves this...

    I would like to know a list of specific foods that pigeons can't eat; Like fruits with pits, cooked seeds etc. Please don't say pigeon seeds, because i already feed birdie his pigeon seeds. If you can, please send me a detailed list of fruits and veggies they can't have. That would be sooooo...

    Hi everyone! It's been a while since I've been on here. Well, I've been worried about my Old Dutch Capuchine house-pigeon Schubert. I always read how with parrots they should have a varied diet, eat greens and fruits and not just seeds. I try to get Schubert to eat healthy foods too but he...

    Hey guys, so I feed a flock of feral pigeons in the city and when I can I bring them my pigeon seed from home but when I'm passing through I'll usually just go to the store and buy a bag of their wild bird seed which they don't love as much but will gladly accept. Now the past couple times I...

    I cannot find red grit anywhere here within 1 1/2 hours of keyser, wv and I'd really like to be able to feed my pigeon food that I can get at a store here. We have no petsmart or petco and the only feed store is southern states which does not have dove/pigeon food or the red grit. Right now I've...

    Weird question does mating come before eating? This last week I have been whistling before I entered the loft and my babies have meet me at their food before I got in. Today I whistled and nobody jumped down to their dish. The young boys stayed up in their boxes cooing like crazy. I checked them...

    Hi, I have two pairs of non-releasable pigeons, who live in my apartment with me. I've primarily been using plastic bowls for their food and water, but am trying to change over to different bowls (1) because we need bowls that can be free-standing in the middle of the floor (the plastic bowls...

I have a question for some of you that have been around pigeons a lot longer than me. I have them on regular pigeon feed I got...

    Good morning everybody. I am new to pigeon keeping and have a question about thistle seed and pigeons. Mourning Doves love thistle seed and it is very high in nutrients, fat , and protein. I was wondering (as fall and winter are coming to my area) would mixing a little thistle in with my regular...

    I have a feral pigeon that has been living with me post-PMV. I think she is an ex-homing pigeon. She also recently laid two eggs. She doesn't go outside any more, due to the PMV. I normally feed my pets the healthiest possible diet, but I don't know what the healthiest diet, but I really don't...

    I rescued and hand reared 2 feral pigeon squabs. I got them weaned and everything seemed OK. But I have a big problem with one chick. It will only eat one kind of seed (a small red one) from the seed mix. It won't eat anything else! Its sibling liked the cracked corn the best, but when that...

    Hello I have a question concerning one of my doves. Today I have found that her feces are pinkish reddish in color. Light brown in some areas but pinkish still, and the texture is of a normal form. It doesn't seem bloody at all, it just seems painted or dyed almost. Could it possibly be the...

    My pigeon likes parsley after it leaving it out a few days to dry. It is the only green food he has eaten so far. Does anyone know if this is good or bad for pigoens? Also, besides avocado, apple seeds, and chocolate, are there vegetables or fruits that would be harmful to feed my pigeon? Are...
