    That's the grit I have always used the oyster shell.
    Thanks for all that info @CaptainHowdy
    Now can I ask a question. I regularly feed pigeons at a park. They always eat a lot of the seeds I buy which contains no wheat. They are wild, but would it be best if I added insoluble grit for them?

    Being they are wild they most likely have many sources for getting grit unlike the captive pidgieos

    Thanks Michael, I won't worry about adding it then. I love feeding them.

    Wild birds will forage for it themselves but you can always a bit in for extra calcium :)

    Thanks, the junk people feed those poor birds is unbelievable. I like giving them something healthy and nutritious to eat.

    Soluble which is what I use. We were chatting about wild pigeons because I always feed them so I wondered what type of grit to use.
    For your birds it will be the oyster shell. This is the make what I use https://www.scarlettsparrotessentials.co.uk/gold-wings-bird-sand-grit-350g
