In order to assure a beautiful, new plumage for the pigeons you’ll be continuing with, the right building materials are necessary, especially proteins. The richly assorted prestige moulting delivers, during this time, ever-so-important building materials. It gets the pigeons into the sleek condition, which is necessary for good breeding results.

  • feed 5583 prestige moulting until the final feather is half-grown. When winter begins, add 1/4 part 5311 pigeonbarley to the feed
  • complete the moulting feed with 1/3 part 3864 solution. In the winter 1/5 part is enough

During the breeding period a good condition of the breeding couple guarantees well fertilized eggs.

  • feed, before the young hatch, the combination of 5583 prestige moulting, 5311 pigeonbarley and 3864 solution. Then switch over to 2/3 part 5582 prestige kweek and 1/3 part 3864 solution. Increase the amount of feed by 20 – 30%, a bit more during winter breeding or extreme cold
  • for the resistance and health of the young pigeons, put a handful of 3865 solution junior with some cold-pressed linseed oil onto 1kg feed
  • give the breeders, which won’t be flying and after the weaning of the last young until the moulting period 5582 prestige breeding, supplemented with about 1/5 part 5311 pigeonbarley
  • give 5587 prestige junior growing so that the young easily can get used to hard feed after weaning and, furthermore, to provide them with all important seeds. This perfect feed contains small peas and maize. The young pigeons ingest it fast and well.
