How much food should I feed a pigeon?

1. If their feed is grains or commercial feed, they should be:

– whole grains, not fine or powdered

– the mixture must be adequate in vitamins

– free from molds, weevil, pest or damage

2. Feed may consist of corn, sorghum, soybean, rice or legume seeds (mongo).

3. Put the food in a place where they can eat all day. Separate grains from feed.

4. When raised in quantity, allow them to eat plenty until they hatch their eggs.

As the chicks grow, allow them to eat freely so as to grow fast and get sold quickly.

If they don’t get sold within a month from hatching, or they lose weight, place them in a coop where their movement will not be so free, and give them plenty of food so as to grow fast.

Pigeons like to take a bath, so they must have their own bathing containers with about 7.5 cm deep water. They bathe 2 or 3 times a week in the morning if the weather is good.

Remove the bath after they are through.

Provide also clean sand (from the seashore) where they can roll themselves and pick up small shells and stones.

When pigeons bathe often, they become sturdy against pests. Protect them from pests and diseases, and consult a veterinarian for this.

Reduction of Old Pigeons

Every year, remove 25% of old birds and replace them with newly born ones to keep active their propagation. Take care of half of this number until age 5-6 weeks. A progressive mother pigeon can produce 10 chicks a year.
