The stuff for finches and parrots? It has oyster shell in it and charcoal?
well the only ingredients i can find are oyster shell & charcoal is that enough? Pigeons are bigger then doves & finches also im not sure if they need bigger stones? They have a parrot on the box though which is close to the size of a pigeon.
use the parrot size, It's good enough to help them digest their grain. Finch is a little small but will still give them the calcium and charcoal they need.
ahh ok but on the cover of this box is has a finch and a parrot lol other then calcium and charcoal is there anything else they need as for gravol?
I assume grit and gravol are the samething
I give my birds red grit, which has crushed granite, oyster shell, and charcoal, and coated in a pink mineral powder.
Oyster shell and charcoal are very important, but you may want to add some granite, since it's the main part of the grit that aids in digestion (since it's so hard and not easily broken down like oyster shell). Usually chicken grit is closer to the size they need. But anything parakeet sized is too small usually. Even chick grit will do, but once you start getting into the small cage bird size...the pigeons look at it with this confused look, haha.
