Topic: Doves are greedy for more

I have recently been feeding my doves "laying mash", because I was told they thrive on it, and that it is extremely nourishing. But they seem to be "asking" me for more variety in their diet. Does anyone here know if this stuff is really all that great for them, and what I could add for variety?

I'm not sure what "laying mash" is but I use dove mix seeds exclusively. I add vitamins to the seed and water. As a treat, I add some Canary song food seed to their regular diet. This smells like licorice and my dove go wild for it.
You can always give them apples, bananas, leaf lettuce, peas, and hard boiled eggs for variety. Just a treat now and then. I give them these about once a week. Milet strips are also a good treat for them.
