Thread Starter 
On a previous thread someone said milo wheat peas are an excellent part of a pigeons diet, so I was wondering, where could I get some? also, any info about what benefits this feed has would be appreciated as well. Thanks,

Milo, wheat and peas are 3 different plants/seeds.

Milo is easy to find since it is a component in any cheap mix of wild bird seed.

Feed wheat should be at any feed store.

Peas are a little harder to find but feed stores may have those too.

You can probably find a blend of the three online or even at pet shops.

They likely didn't delineate with commas and it looked like they were talking about one thing.

 

Peas are higher in protein than the other things. I've seen them in parrot blends. You may want to look into that.

Racing pigeon food, or what is known as Pigeon A, I believe, both have peas.

Peas can get dried at any food store. They're not needed if mixing wild bird seed, scratch grain feed, and chicken layer pellet feed. Pellets will offset seed n grain mixes, and vice versa.

Milo and peas are totally different grains.
