LEMON JUICE

BY Dr.Wim Peters answer:

"Lemon juice mixed in water prevents salmonella from spreading with drinking
water, and helps to fight viral diseases.

Lemon juice fulfils exactly the same function as the Apple cider vinegar, that
of acidifying the intestinal content. ACV has a relatively low percentage of
certain minerals and vitamins that are useful to the pigeon. On the other hand,
lemon juice is rich in vitamin C which, although produced by the pigeon, helps
to fight viral diseases. On balance, therefore, your friend is right: lemon
juice is as good as apple cider vinegar.

A problem might be that both products are unpalatable and it can cause the birds
to drink less water until they get used to the taste. One very significant
characteristic of vitamin C in the lemon juice is that it helps the body to
neutralize and expel toxic for the system, it is useful."

Tip: do not put to much lemon juice or apple cider vinegar into the drinking
water until the birds are used to it.

As you have seen, our members also add the Acid pack 4 way to the list. The big
difference is that the pigeons like it very much right at the first time they
drink it. The only problem might be that it contain salt and we have to pay
attention not to give any other kind of salt to our pigeons

 

LETTUCE

LICE.

These are the most common of pests on pigeons and are very small but

still visible to the naked eye. Examine your birds regular as these are

not bloodsucking insects but they do live off the pigeon's skin scales

and feathers and never leave. In the warm months they rapidly multiply.

LUGOL

Here is more information about Lugol as you asked for:
Iodine is good but Lugol is better because it
contains what is necessary for hatchability. Iodine
alone helps but mainly for the good function of the
thyroid. Lugol helps in the prevention of diseases,
improve egg hatchability because of the potassium in
it and help to raise stronger birds. We can obtain
Lugol in most pharmacy as it is also recommend for
humans, if they don't have it, they will command it.
The problem is that we don't really know the right
quantity to give. When I used this one, a gave 1cc.
per gallon. With Lugol made specially for pigeons,
it's 1 teaspoon per gallon, once a week, it's not
expansive and last a long time...

LYCINE:

A few days ago, I posted tip number 11 in which I
asked why particularly Lysine among the
amino acids was important for our pigeons. It seems
that no one except Shannon is interested to know more
about it as no one asked for info.

As I believe it is really important for our modenas, I
will tell you more about it.

Lysine is very important for growth because it plays a
role in the production of many of the body’s
proteins. It is also important in the formation of
enzymes, hormones and, last but not least,
antibodies, without which our pigeons would die from
lack of resistance to all sort of diseases
including viral infections. It also has a role in the
correct usage of fatty acids.

Any good product with supplementary amino acids will
contain lysine. (Sometimes call lys)

The second important amino acids for our pigeons are
menthionine.

Do you want more information about menthionine?

How many among you give amino acids to their pigeons?
Don’t forget it is important
as the feed itself, as it is for vitamins, aren’t
complete in those except when very fresh seed and even
there, it should not be enough. !!!
