I am new to pigeons. I have a nice seed mix I bought for my pigeons, and want to know whether I should supplement it (by mixing it in) with a higher protein pellet to up the protein. I'd like to avoid feeding any pellets if I can, just because I hear it produces more runny poops than an all grain feed does, but I would feed some pellets if I knew it kept my birds healthier, of course. My current feed is a pigeon/dove mix, 11% protein, 4% fat, 10% fiber, and the seeds are (in this order) white millet, red milo, red millet, whole wheat, canary grass seed, feed oats, cracked corn, oat groats, green split peas, safflower seed, calcium carbonate, orange oil, etc. Picture below with contents of my feed. This feed appears high quality and clean to me. I feed my chukars a game bird pellet that is 22% protein, and that is what I would supplement the pigeons feed with, unless somebody can recommend something better? So, should I supplement with a pellet for protein? If so how much, 50:50? Should I do this as they are growing and cease when they are adults, or do it all the time? Thanks!
