33 Pigeon husbandry and diet Breeding pigeons is often a passion. Pigeons need care and attention. You should provide a dovecote with 2 compartments and 2 nests for each pigeon pair. This means that the pigeon pair will begin a new brood before finishing the previous one. The front of the bird house should be oriented to catch as much sun as possible. Traditional pigeon feed consists of grains (wheat, barley, maize) and peas. You can supplement this feed with minerals in block form: bird grit. Pigeons perch all over the place and heavily pollute their environment with excrement. You therefore need to use special troughs and tubs to keep feed and water clean. Egg-laying: - 1-2 eggs (3-5 times a year) - begin laying eggs from around 6 months old - brooding period 17 days (rearing about 10 days) Pigeon Drinker • Material: Plastic ​ ​ ​ Ref. no.
