Feeding Directions

Homestead Pigeon Grain Mix: Use as a complement to a good feeding program for pigeons such as Homestead Pigeon Pellets.

Feeding Tips

  • Water - Poultry should have access to clean, fresh water at all times
  • Grit - When birds have access to coarse litter or whole grains, an insoluble grit should be fed.  Limit intake of grit to 1 pound per 100 pounds of feed or 2 pounds per 100 birds per week. Grit can be blended with their regular ration or offered free choice in a separate feeder.
  • Do not allow feeders to run empty or stale feed to accumulate.
  • Never feed any feedstuffs that are moldy, musty or suspect in any way.

Homestead Pigeon Feeds are formulated specifically for pigeons and should not be fed to other species, or to birds in large commercial operations where a more customized diet would be more appropriate.  Do not feed to cattle or other ruminants.
