What to feed pigeons?

Pigeons are natural seed and grain eaters and will consume any and all seeds. They are sometimes referred to as granivorous, meaning they feed primarily on grains and seeds.

Wheat, oats, corn, rice, peas and flax are ideal pigeon foods. Pigeons will happily consume small insects, too, so they'll usually eat dried waxworms and mealworms if given the opportunity. Any and all bird seed mixes are suitable for pigeons - they're definitely amongst the least fussy garden birds.

Vegetables and fruit are also excellent food for pigeons. Wood pigeons especially enjoy munching upon farmer's cabbages and lettuce!
