Does anyone here know how much newly hatched pigeons eat?
Can I assume you're looking for specific amounts...? Tsps/CCs?
Exactly! Vet books say to give 0.03ml per 10 grams, but I don't think that nearly enough. How much are you giving to your babies? I think mine that are about the same age as yours get 2-3ml per feeding.
Mine are getting approx 3 tsps for each feeding. I'm using the Kaytee Baby at a thinnish oatmeal consistentcy. No reference olive found gives any specifics.
I found this link, but it doesn't have any recommended amounts:
Lol, I saw that! I'm feeding until their crops are full, just not hard. 9 am, small amount again at 1:30pm (befor work) again at 11pm....
Here's a thought... Any pigeon clubs in your area? I've called a local racing club here in Maine, no response as of yet.
That's about how I do it.
Good idea... I'll look into that.
