    Daily consumption

    As pigeons grow up very rapidly, it is difficult to determine the ideal consumption. The velocity of transit of each individual has to determine the maximum quantity to supply. The big crop capacity of colombiforms make the possibility that overfeeding happens, possibility that we must avoid. In order to take as example, the rock pigeon consumes daily an amount of hand feeding formula made that is about 60% and 40% of its alive weight when it is prepared, it is distributed in 3-4 doses and with a maximum recommended dose of approximately 200 ml per day.


    The Frugivorous Pigeon hand-feeding formula should be prepared with hot water (a temperature between 35 -38?C is enough) in sufficient quantity to achieve a creamy texture (about 20%- 25% concentration). It is a continuation formula, that is going to substitute gradually the crop milk given during the first days of the pigeon's life and that it is going to be supplied to them until the finalization of the weaning process. Although, each species requires the application of an specific protocol, taking as an example a granivorous pigeon, the rock dove, the introduction of the continuation hand feeding formula begins when they are 4-5 days and the process of the substitution of crop milk must ended when they are 10-12 days (look the protocol of hand feeding formula for this species).
