    Long story short, I need to order food from amazon that I can use to feed both my chickens and my pigeons.
    Whats the best food to get?

    I recently had my feed store order some Austrian Peas (which by the way my chickens don't like- but they don't mind split peas in small quantities). See what your feed store will special order for you and you can mix your own maybe.

    I recommend the book by Heuser called "Feeding Poultry" or another nutrition book if mixing your own feed.

    The cheapest source would be a feed mill, if you have one, for feed. Next cheapest, from feed store. Most expensive, paying shipping. I buy some ingredients from grocery store bulk bins sometimes.

    You might enjoy some of the old threads - search for pigeon mix if interested.
