Pigeon Supplies

I get emails asking what Pro Pigeon has in their supply closet and what if any medication program/routine we follow.

It's important to note that we currently fly ONLY at the one loft races. We chose to put all our focus and energy on the breeders; a career in marketing and a wedding around the corner, limit my time to race locally as well ;)

ProPigeon Medication Program

  • Test droppings every 2-3 months
  • Treat for what is present
  • Periodically (every 3-4 weeks), a preventative 3 day course of Miracle Life/Turbosole

New Breeder Acquisitions/ One Loft Race Returners:

2009 Mercedes Classic Race Results

***5 of the 6 were lost in training, PROPIGEON.COM 619 made it through every race including the 400 mile. I brought him back and may test breed him in for club/combine races.

Update 11/03/09: We are down to 1 bird at the CBS races. I don't foresee a good showing in this race for us this year, back to the drawing board...

We have a team of 6 in Oklahoma City:

Racing Loft 1
612, 614, 618, 620, 619, 621 (red=lost)

612 - Import Keizer Janssen x a direct daughter of CBS's "VICTORY"
614, 618, 619 - "Witpen Hofkens 366" x Inbred Van Hove Hen (1739/Bill Martin)
620, 621 - "Brother NPO Winner '04" x Import Beverdam Hofken Hen #799

Looks like they will do the 100 mile inventory/trainer toss this weekend; I'm excited to see how they do.
