Like everything else, everyone has their own little secrets when it comes to feeding! I think most people use a breeder mix of around 15 or 16% as a base feed. This is then supplemented by some people with other grains or pellets. I have had good luck this year supplementing my normal breeder mix with trout pellets. These are very high in protein (42%). The babies seem to grow faster and healthier than in the past.I just wanted to know the right pigeon mix and the percentage of the proper mix of the seed for the racers and breeders, then how many times should I feed the racers and the breeders in a day? Especially the breeders feeding and raising their young from the first day til weaning.. And for the breeders who is resting, incubating and mating.. I know the breeders should have feeds, grits and water 24/7 while raising youngsters.. But what should be the proper mix which is my main concern??? Thanks
Once the babies are weaned I cut the protein level way back by mixing the above base mix with about 25% barley. This seems to do well for me.
Hope this helps.
