Thank you! I am going to need a lot of help! I get my racing homers next week and I want the best for them! I am getting some 4 ybs from a guy in a pigeon club in michigan, the parents are 500 mile racers. I am lucky to have found such good people. Wow, still good people these days, it is wonderful!
Various type of grit has different content of minerals. Stones in grit help gizzard functioning, as pigeon don’t have teeth to chew seeds. Oyster shells are good source of calcium, which birds need for their bones and egg production. I personally like to use two, three types of mineral grit (pink minerals, charcoal and oyster mixes).
you can get kay-tee hi calcium grit at the petstore for cocktiel sized birds, it is a bit small but it is better than nothing. you really need to go to a farm supply or feedstore for the red grit and oystershell, they also sell pick pots at the pigeon supply sites online. just google pigeon supply.
