    Hi All, To avoid people having to read the backstory I will cut to the chase… Is it bad to feed pigeons peanuts (and nothing else)? Backstory… So there is a local feral pigeon who I have been feeding for about 9 months. I started feeding him as noticed he had two puss filled legs which...

    I just found out that Aggie loves peanuts. I bought some raw peanuts and handed them to her in a small lid. I didn’t think she’d know what they were since I found her as a squeaker. But she SURE did. She eagerly gobbled them up and started slamming the lid on the ground trying to find more...

    My hand raised pigeon, Noah, will not eat the larger seeds in his food mix, like the oats and died peas. He seems to only be eating the millet and other small seeds and occasionally I see him swallow bits of cracked corn. He tries to eat them but he just picks them up in his beak chomps on them...

    Feeding raw Spanish peanuts to pigeons is a sure fire way to make them tame. Click here to watch a short video on feeding them to your pigeons.

    How do you give them the peanuts? Are they cooked or just naturally? Thanks for your help! :)

    Hey Y'all, I thought some of you might enjoy this little video I made of my birds having a peanut feeding frenzy. About halfway through, one bird demonstrates his superior intelligence. ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xn-Hkm0iCME

I built a gravity feeder that can (when needed) hold 4 days or more worth of the feed I have for them (22% protein poultry pellets mixed with pop corn) I get small bags of unsalted, raw, shelled and chopped peanuts. My loft is only a couple of months...

    I currently have a pair of Chinese Owls that have been sitting on eggs for about 9 days. Hen at night, cock during the day. All the birds are new to the loft and not used to my presence yet. I chopped up some un-salted Spanish peanuts as a treat to get them used to me. After several minutes the...

    Pigeons love peanuts, but what is the average number of peanuts per day should I feed my fliers and breeders espesially the breeders feeding their young? Because I'm worried about over feeding my fliers when returning home, because I give it to them and they easilly trapped inside the loft..

    Hi all, Just found a pij outside who at first appeared to be eating normally but looked a little strange. I picked him up and found seeds backed up in his mouth, but no obvious canker. I could feel a huge amount of seeds backed up in his throat, so I started manipulating them out--out came no...
