I wouldnt let them eat stuff off of the ground.
They can get sick that way.
I also would let them have access to grit 24/7 if possible.

Hi! Where do you live? Can you order pigeon grit online? I know the shipping would be outrageous but you gotta do what you gotta do, right. I have one pigeon and I couldn't find any grit nearby so I had to order 10 lbs. with shipping at like 15$! More then my whole purchase combined. haha. but thats part of the responsibility of having pets I guess.

Pigeon grit: can i feed them once in a week

Hi... I am not sure of what I am going to tell you, but this is just an idea which is better than no grit... you know they need that grit to digest their food... if you have available some kind of crushed sand... or something similar to grit.. hopefully you know what grit is.... if not... You can look it up on one of the supply stores on the internet which will give you the ingredients and maybe you can come up with something to give them.... I think something to use for grit is better than NO Grit... hope this helps.......if I were in your situation this is what I would try to do... Good Luck !!!:)

Actually Shalimar, I have given them course sand if they are getting meds that they can't have calcium with. I figured the same thing. Better than no grit at all.:)

Sundar, The pigeon grit also contains calcium. Calcium is VERY important for your pigeons. Especially the hens. They can have a lot of problems if they don't get enough calcium. You would need to find a way to give them calcium. Egg shells contain it, and I have heard of people giving them ground up eggshell, but these should be boiled or cooked in some way I think in case of salmonella. Do you have a calcium source for them?
