  1. Can you introduce me to a supplier of the ingredients? Apart from the garlic and onion these ingredients are not obtained in Trinidad.

  2. Thankx guys. My name is Devlin staying in India city called Kolkata.I keep high flying homing pigeons.We have compititions during the summer months when it is about 40+.Just want to know one thing when the pigeon comes down after 10 to 11 hours what is the best solution to make the pigeon recover?

  3. I don’t make use of tonics as pigeons burn it out quickly. What is in the tonic is in nature there for i stick to mother nature what feeding to my pigeons is concerned. Pigeons don’t tend to burn the vitamins, etc… out quickly when they get there body needs in via seeds, etc… but with tonics, seems to me my neighbors pigeons get quick out of breath when just circling around their lofts. As their owners give them tonics. I told him he is wasting his money on tonics.

    I went to South Africa to see my new pigeon loft on my brother’s warehouse roof top. Absolutely beautiful, luxurious and high tech too. My pigeons also like it as my brother say :” They are more active, more alive and coo much more than in our belated uncle’s old loft.” It is build like a brick house with stainless steel dowel fronts, American ceder front doors with 6 raised panels. Build in a capital L shape.

    The vertical bit of the capital L house breeding loft, race loft for short to middle distance racers, office, race loft, breeding loft for long distance racers and large store room
    The short horizontal bit of capital L house waiting lounge with small kitchen and in the corner is a fully hidden testing and administrating top spec lab.
    At the back of the lofts is up and halfway over on to steep pitch roof ridge line aviaries. Made out of stainless steel solid bars and fine thick solid stainless steel mesh welded to it
