Q: I started feeding my pigeons hemp seeds, but now they only eat the hemp seeds and ignore their other food! How do I stop this seed preference?
A: Hemp seed should be fed in moderation and can be given as a treat to your pigeons. They do love it! If you want to encourage them to eat their regular diet, I would remove the hemp seed from your regular feed and only offer it as a treat; it is a good source of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats and seems to be most beneficial during molting and the breeding season.
ThePigeonLoft does not have experience feeding hemp seeds, do you? What are your recommendations? Comment below!
