A diet of a pigeon is very different, so when you feed racing pigeon supplies you should take that into account.When you compare what an expert pigeon keeper feeds the pigeons and what they usually find to eat in the park, you think about how they manage to get along.
In the exhibition and racing world, a pigeon fancier is overwhelmed at what he feeds his pigeons and racing pigeon diets. In this article we will not be talking about detailed feeding with lei tills, feeding hemp, etc. as this information can be personally searched and links will be provided below.
Nevertheless, it is critical to give the birds a balanced diet consisting of quality Racing Pigeon Supplies. But after that, you have to try to make them as like you want them.
Millet, beans, wheat and maize are parts of pigeon stock food which is usually sold by the pigeon supply merchants. Other seeds to be used are canary seed, lentils, and vetches, rolled oats, polished rice, and barley. Plus a small amount of layers pellets or poultry pellets is usually included. Of course if it is hard to find proper food, you can always use wild bird food.
Racing pigeon supplies should be maintained clean and dry.
Depending on the number of birds you have the size of the container varies, but a large bucket with a lid or a plastic dustbin would be perfect. It is very important to keep mice and rats out.
The racing pigeon supplies should be clean and hard, grains for example should be hard as nails and clean. You might wonder how a pigeon eats all of this, but seeing some Woodpigeon eating crops stuffed with acorns, I remarked that pigeons have a strong digestive system. Some think that you should not give same-season wheat, because it is not hard enough, but it depends on the moisture of the grain and the season.

It is possible to mix your own feed starting with basic 50% wheat and adding various grains; many people do this, but it is easier for the beginner to buy the ready mixed product.
