    My dove won't touch her grit. I know this because in a separate dish I put red pigeon grit with a layer of "Kaytee high-cal grit supplement for small birds" over the top, and the two layers are still perfectly preserved. For food I give her: 2 tbs "Wild Delight dove & quail feed" 3 tsps...

    Hey guys! I ordered Harrison's Adult Lifetime Mash which I'm sure is good for pigeons, but I don't see myself convincing CUP to eat that any time soon. Converting a pigeon from seeds to pellets is one thing -- they're at least the same shape even if the texture is different -- but seeds to...

    Hello: I've been wondering about what the birds are eating, when I leave food in the breeders loft... I don't pull their food, or give them time limits. Food, water and grit is always available when there are chicks to be fed. It seems they will first eat the peas, wheat (I think it's...

    I just fed the Day6 baby 25cc of baby formula, and he keeps squeaking for more food. His crop looks pretty big so I don't want to overfeed him. Should I give in and feed him some more? The feathers look like that because it just took a warm bath. It is still harassing me for food. Feed more?

    I don't have any pigeons, but hope to get at least one some day... I was wondering, would an automatic feeder (like what chickens have) be suitable for a pigeon? Or would it overfeed?

  17. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi everybody, About 25 days ago I found a pigeon on a tree in front of my house that at the time I thought it was about 4 or 5 days (eyes closed). Having never dealt with pigeons, I started searching again and found some sites that recommended a special formula for baby pigeons called Kaytee...

    Today I did all my normal stuff: Wake up, clean the cages. Feed the birds. I put the pigeon mix, mixed with the cardinal one. Some safflower seeds here and there. Some peas. Took a shower. Every time I went into the room, one of my pijjies started following me. She was around my feet, and...
