  1. Hi Albert mare.Just got the post and saw your comment saying you live in NZ now but not sure where to get pigeon products from.You can buy many pigeon products from CHECKER-FLIGHT NEW ZEALAND 18 HENWOOD RD,TAUPAKI,AUCKLAND.E-MAIL [email protected] Ask them to post you a price list of all their pigeon products,and they can courier the products to your door.Hope you get this.

  2. I might have to try that! for me! Garlic-tea? sounds healthy enough. Really, it’s good to give them a “pick me up” even(maybe esp.’ly) during the off season too! Winter can be rough on birds depending on where you live.I know a guy who lives in Alberta, enough said! He tries to keep them well fed,& lets them out on “warm” days.Besides, after the winter comes breeding season. How are they then??????? Good stuff! Always enjoy the articles.

  3. And where do you get some of these ingrediants? I am not sure about raw cane sugar… maybe glucose instead…much more digestable. Beet sugar is also very digestable.
