I believe pigeons have 35 taste buds if I remember right. So they aren't really as picky as we take them to be. But yeah, I think the little buds they do have, must really like the peanuts Or maybe because they know it's like junk food, being full of protein and things that make them get fat quick Like kids. They don't think about how fat and hyper they'll get, they just care if it tastes goodMakes me wonder do pigeons have taste buds?? What makes pigeons want certain grains like peanuts more than other grains....is it because they taste good?
LMAO!!!!! Good Lord, can I ever relate to that. That is SOOOOOOOO funny! I'm lucky some days that I get out alive. They are all over me! Fighting with each other! Some days it's like a war zone. If I have my reading glasses on, they sometimes get knocked off. Good thing they're on a string. (still laughing) I can visualize what you look like when you get out of there. Apparently our birds were not raised with many manners. LOL.When I feed my birds spanish peanuts, I come out of the loft looking like a wild man. They set on my head, shoulder, arms and they attack me for them. It is funny but they and I seem to enjoy it. The first time my wife saw me come from the loft with my hair all looking like a crazed man, she thought I was having a bad hair day. I don't know why they like them, but they surely do.
