As in the lofts even the slightest doubts about the health of a pigeon we will contact immediately with Belgica de Weerd (Jan van Wanrooij) or visit the clinic. Should there really be anything detected then certainly against cured, however, that we try to limit to the minimum, but certainly with the youngsters you cann’t do without.
There is regular with the youngsters something done by the headlines, we do this by feel. A cure against tricho is also every 3-4 weeks on the program as well WN-red on the day before basketing. A pigeon that is not 100% healthy cann’t perform well. Further, all birds (including breeders) just vaccinated annually against Paramixo and the youngsters get this vaccination preferably 2x. The juniors are seeded in their birth year against pox with the brush.
During the season we don’t take any risk on the health of the pigeons. In addition, a regular smoke tablet is used a couple of times during the racing season, the pigeons on Tuesday get sedochol in drinking water.
For feeding the pigeons, we have a basic food scheme we use during the season, this adjustment done by feel depending on the severity of the flight (s), weather etc. etc. The pigeons also receive regular “allerlei-mix ” and grit.
