Hi everybody

sorry I haven't been around for a couple of days but I still have to work unfortunately I did ask the man whether he would join this forum and he was reluctant he said I have joined forums in the past but you always get some stupid people asking stupid questions, which are not relevant to pigeon health my main concern is keeping the stress off of the pigeon which in return races better he said he would be only to welcome to speak to you on the telephone at any time or through his website, once again all I can say he has been extremely helpful I believe Buster got on to his website he is on you Tube as well I will find out where and let you know.

Kind regards

Terry

TRIED ALL sorts over the years,keep it SIMPLE.
Left out hormoform this year,for the first time..
Fed stockbirds tic beans in their boxes/hopper fed verselaga breeding mix
NO difference at all in there feather quality!
IS not youngbird sickness A VIRUS???
you cannot stop a virus,like us catching a cold.
even tho,i/we drink all fresh orange/fresh fruit/drinks etc
but catch it never the less!!,if theres one going around :cry: :lol:
If its GOOD,as you say it is,i will pass it onto my mates,who get the y/b sickness,year after year.
Well done with your birds ;) ,it all comes down to your methods/stockbirds breeding the goods!!!

Hi

thank you for your comments and I take on board most things that you say but first I have not got any stock birds, this is my second year racing only my first year young birds only this year yearlings and young birds most of my pigeons were bred from members at the club one member gave me eight and another five and so on and I ended up with I think 25 last year all young birds, I travelled to Belgium quite a lot and a friend of mine over their asked me if I could get him some top S and some vital spark I made numerous enquiries until I found it I also gave it to my pigeons all the pigeons or the majority of pigeons at the club last year went down with young birds sickness mine didn't this year there have been quite a few gone down with young birds sickness but I was lucky again could this be vital spark I don't know my birds never seem to be sick and as you say it is all in the breeding well the members that gave me their pigeons must have got it wrong because I have beaten their pigeons in nearly every race the same pigeons from the same stock I do not have the answer for that but I do spend time when I have it with them they are kept clean exercised twice daily every day regardless of whether with the exception of fog and mist I have been told I shouldn't do this because all they are is hawk food yes we have hawks here hawks are everywhere but I think mine are just a little bit sharp I have lost one to a hawk which I see it take off the top of the loft I think it was on its second flight as a young bird very often as they fly around in a flock suddenly they all disburse in all directions this is obviously a predator attack I just think I'm lucky but good to hear what other people are doing.

Kind regards

Terry
