TAKING CARE

RACE-METHODE

At Jan and Frans their lofts the pigeons are raced on two systems.
So are there on both lofts 32 widowers who are played on the traditional widowhood.
Frans races with 9 pairs on the nest and Jan with 12 pairs.

They mate their widowers around the 25th March.
The widowers don't raise any youngsters on their nest.
After 6 days of brooding they are sepperated again.

Around the 21st April the are mated for the second time and after 3 days
brooding they start for there widowhood..........
All the yearlings raise one youngster from their first nest.
If the youngsters are 20 days old, then the yearling's become a widower.


THE FEEDING and GRAINS

Jan and Frans love from variated mixes so they always purchase 3 brands to mix.

And those brands are:
**Paloma Super widowhood
**Mariman Super M
**Versele lage Superstart

The nest-pigeons can eat as much as they want (full tray).
The widowers get in the morning one spoon "Gerry +" from Versele Lage and in the evening 2 spoons from the variated mixture above.
They also get with their evening diner a little teaspoon of candyseeds. (each pigeon)

There are always minerals, stones etc. on the loft.


THE MEDICAL PART

When the pigeons 10 days brood they get a cure against trichomonas.
One year with the products from " de Weerd" and the other year with products from the vetenarian " Peeters".

All pigeons are vaccinated against the paramixo-virus and against smallpox.

In February they are cured with "Parastop" against the paratyfus-virus with a product from "de Weerd".

The last 3 days before basketing the pigeons get the products beneath mixed through there grains:

1 Spoon Aminozuren.
1 Spoon pigeon-oil (9 sorts of oil)
1 Spoon B.M.T. (brewers-, milkyeast and wheat-flakes)
1 Spoon racing-vitamines.
1 Ampul aspartatencombination (Red ampuls)
Mixed together in 1 kilo grain given in the evening.

On the day from homecoming:
1 bag "recuvit forte" and 1 Spoon Dextrose in 1,5 liter water.
This stays all day long in the loft.
