We're going on vacation and my neighbor is going to feed my son's pigeons. He has about 30 pigeons. How much food should they be given? My son just showed my how much he said he feeds them daily. He filled a container to about 3 quarts and said that's what he feeds them daily (half the container in the morning and half late afternoon). That seems like a lot to me but I have no clue.

Also, can the grit just be left in a container in the coop or does it need to be spread around. My son usually mixes it into the food.

Thank you

I fill the feeder, then When it is getting low, say seeing scatted seeds in the bottom , I fill it back up. If he has a regime he can start that again when he gets back. I’d keep it simple.

The grit can have its own container to keep it out of the droppings. They eat what they want as they need it separate from their feed.
