Season Reminders- July, 2016

Bring the outside in, which in this case would be minerals, grits, pick stone, vegetables, carrot corn, mineral salts and such.


Modified light system is used! Reminder, if you haven’t already, please vaccinate for PMV & POX. I know currently in America both products are not manufactured. La Sota for PMV can be substituted and Flowers of Sulphur in the grit should be used if you can’t locate a pox vaccine.

With this being one of the hottest months, I would pull flights and shut them down. Remember, when pulling flights, you don’t have to pre-cut & let dry beforehand if birds are on their 3rd flight. Crate them up, since this will get them excited and hot, then pull the flights straight out– not on an angle that could cause damage to their follicle. Temperature of a normal pigeon is 108 degrees, so crating them on a hot day helps the blood move quicker which then makes it easier to pull flights. I usually pull the last flights (ninth and tenth). After this, return them to the loft and let them get accustomed to flying up to the perch with only eight flights. Optional tail feathers can also be pulled and I do this by pulling every other one (alternate) and then when 3/4ths of the new flights are grown out, I pull the other six tail feathers. At this point, you should shut them down for a month to grow in the new feathers. Remember, one of the down sides to this is the flight is stunted about 3/8ths of an inch for the following old bird season. But most of our money races now are in the young bird series so you don’t leave anything to chance.
