I just recently got some roller pigeon and not sure to feed them, when they are breeding and not breeding, season changes? They just feed small crack corn and I think turkey feed (some sort of pellet)...

Was hoping there was something different?

You can buy Pigeon feed at most farm stores...minimum of 14% protein. Pigeons breed all year long.
Cracked corn tends to scratch their throat and turkey feed was created for turkeys.

I believe you mentioned you are in Fresno? Here are some feed stores I found, you can check all of them and see who has the best mix. I had to try several before I found one that they liked ALL the seeds in, with quite a mix. It's for racing pigeons but it's clearly their favorite. . .maybe why mine are so plump. :rolleyes: (They're not racers!) It runs around $16-$25 for 50 lbs, which you can keep in an airtight/watertight container to store. You'll also want to get some red grit for them, which is about $8 for $50 lbs and lasts quite awhile.

I've heard some people feed their pigeons with turkey pellets and they do well because they are usually high in protein. For variety you can use pigeon mix and add some of those turkey pellets. For cheapness you can even use wild bird seed mix with that turkey pellets.
