Grit Offerings

Kaytee Bay-Mor Hi-Calcium Pigeon Grit  – Available in red or grey (grey is best for breeders who raise white pigeons as it eliminates staining), grit is a necessity when feeding a grain-based diet. In addition to promoting proper food digestion, it provides many of the essential nutrients usually lacking in typical pigeon grains.

Ingredients:  Calcium Carbonate, Granite Grit, Oyster Shell, Salt, Charcoal, Anise Oil, Zinc Oxide, Manganese Oxide, Ferrous Carbonate, Copper Oxide, Iron Oxide, Calcium Iodate, Cobalt Carbonate.  Guaranteed Analysis:  Calcium (min)…25.0% Calcium (max)…30.0%

Lind Marine Oyster Shell – Offers plenty of calcium at 36%, and prevents hens from laying soft-shelled eggs.  It’s often blended with the pigeon grit.
