Vanrobaeys Winter

The winter period depends from loft to loft, one pigeon fancier breeds early, the other somewhat later, pigeons are not let out,...

For pigeons who are not let out and therefore do not have to perform, Winter/Rest no. 16, Casaert Depurative no. 418, Premium Power Relax no. 183 are recommended, if so desired, in combination with a moulting mixture from our range.

After the moulting period, which is pretty stressful, it is of the utmost importance to prepare your breeding pigeons for the breeding period. Here, Winter/Rest no. 16 can play an important role as it guarantees that the presence of  barley, paddy and oats entirely “cleans” your pigeons. Feed this mixture during 3 weeks to switch afterwards to a Vanrobaeys breeding mixture before having the pigeons mate.

During the winter period, it is extremely important to have healthy intestines. To that end, bind 10 gr of Bactostar on 1 kg of Vanrobaeys pigeon feed with BronchoStar twice a week.

Vanrobaeys Homecoming

When your pigeons come back home from a competition race, it is important to get them back in shape as soon as possible and as efficiently as possible.

To that end, fast absorbing and strong but light digestible feed is necessary.

As soon as the pigeons fly in, it is recommended to feed them the Vanrobaeys Super Grit mix. Only 2 hours after arrival, feed them Vanrobaeys Premium Power Relax no. 183 or Breeding Exclusive no. 38 or Diet Extra no. 26 mixtures.

As extra support to speed up recovery, we recommend to bind 10 gr of proteinstar on 1 kg of pigeon feed with 10 ml of bronchostar.

Proteinstar is a high-quality fast absorbing protein that helps your pigeons recover their strengths in no time.
When your pigeons are back in shape (the day after their homecoming), switch to a protein-poor light mixture, such as Casaert Depurative no. 418 or Premium Power Relax no. 183. Per kg of pigeon feed, 10 gr of Bactostar can be added to ensure a perfect intestinal health.

Vanrobaeys Acidification of drinking water

Some pigeon fanciers are well-aware that drinking water acidification is an important part to be considered, but some seriously underestimate this element.

Via the drinking water pigeons can come into contact with a lot of bacteria that can contaminate the pigeons, such as e.g. trichomonas.

The average pH value tested in the drinking water with several pigeon fanciers ranges from 6.5 to 8, whereas the ideal value  can maximally be comprised between 4.5 & 5 so that trichomonas do not have a chance to survive.

A lot of pigeons fanciers make the mistake to fill the drinking bowl too much. Therefore, it is recommended to first test your drinking water with pH strips that you can find for free in the Vanrobaeys pH Blue Star packagings.

Take the test:

  • Take 1 l of water that you use for your pigeons
  • Hold the pH-tester in the water for 20 sec
  • Pour 5 ml of pH Blue Star in the water
  • Take a new tester & hold it in the water for 20 sec
  • Now, compare with the chart on the packaging of the pH Blue Star
  • If the value is comprised between 4.5 & 5, the water is ok to feed to your pigeons
  • - If the value exceeds 5, you should increase the quantity; lessen it if the value is lower than 4.5.

Use:
All year round, min. 4 x per week, 5ml per litre water during the racing period 2 days per week. Do not administer to pigeons with downy birds.

As you can see that you can avoid big problems for a small price, we recommend pH Blue Star for every pigeon loft.
1 L of pH Blue Star allows to acidify an average of 200 L of drinking water.
Cost price: +- 0.068/ litre

  1. Use a properly formulated Vanrobaeys breeding, racing and moulting mix as the foundation for your feeding regime and for future success.
