another Newbie Dove feed/seed question??????

Hi, another dove seed question from a Newbie......

If I took some of the dove bird seed mix that we buy from a local pet shop by the lb. & gently pressed these seeds into the soil in a small patch off to the side of our garden, would these seeds actually grow?

Would I be able to harvest some seeds in the future to feed our doves as well as leaving some for the wild doves to eat?

YES the seed will germinate & grow BUT the yeald (from a small patch)will not be large enough to feed your doves and/or wild doves...
