Pigeon Essentials is a very comprehensive supplement that should be added to slightly moistened corn. This exciting product is designed to look after all your birds' basic nutritional needs plus provide extra support for the digestive and immune systems. They are the foundation of your birds' health and performance. Pigeon Essentials contains a very comprehensive vitamin package with emphasis on the B group (energy vitamins) and the anti-oxidant vitamins (to help remove the toxic by-products of exertion). The comprehensive trace minerals are supplied using the firm's unique 'Rapisorb' technology. This maximises nutrient absorption from the gut into the bloodstream and is achieved using nutrients that more closely resemble those found in the natural diets of wild birds.
A pigeon's digestive system is easily unbalanced. Every time the bird exercises blood is diverted from the gut to supply the heart, lungs and muscles. Prolonged lack of nutrition to the gut leads to an upset in its chemistry, reducing its efficiency and leaving it prone to microbial imbalance. Pigeon Essentials contains the unique 'Flourish' herbal package specially selected to help maintain an attractive environment in the gut for beneficial bacteria. This is called a prebiotic effect. These herbs also have the benefit of providing extra protection against protozoans like coccidia and providing extra support for the immune system. So your birds are less likely to get ill following transport and racing/training and the inevitable exposure to a number of other birds. Key ingredients in Pigeon Essentials have been selected to enable the birds to experience a rapid and stress free moult. Experience also shows that the water resistance of feathers is improved so enabling birds to fly more easily in wet weather.
Birds that are not being very heavily exercised may lose a little weight on Pigeon Essentials. This is normal and the weight loss will be fat not muscle. These birds will in fact eat less food so save you money. Heavily exercised birds will not show this effect. You may also find that you can feed corn mixes with lower protein levels (fewer pulses). These mixes will also save you money. Pigeon Essentials contains many key nutrients and nutricines that are not water soluble. The Birdcare Company believes that many of these ingredients are crucial to the performance of supplements and so will not compromise on this. We don't believe it is possible to make 'in-water' supplements that are anything like as good as this. Pigeon Essentials should be added to slightly moistened corn. It is a good idea to have a spray bottle of water or cooking oil for this job.
