We use oyster mash mixed in with our cracked corn. That combo works well for us over the years.


We use the same except for whole kernel corn. We've found that the cracked corn too often draws grackles and doves.

I use pigeon food. I also use patience. Their alternative food source will likely dry up and they will eventually fill your traps..
