Ok, so we've bought a sack of gem pellets, heard a lot of good things about them so we are going to use them on the ybs for the racing season, any suggestions on the ratio of pellet to corn to get the best out of the young ones, thanks guys

Yes. I use The Pax now and have done for over a year now. Like a lot of these things, it is so hard to know if it is doing our birds any good at all.

What it is supposed to do for the pigeons?
