NUTRITION

From Dr. Colin walker:

 

Confined birds, which include most stock birds, are totally dependent on their owners to provide everything that they need nutritionally. A nutritional deficiency in the short term will cause no problem, however, even a subtle deficiency over an extended time will compromise health. This shows as a lack of vitality, decreased reproductive performance, and a poor moult. It is well known that the nutritional demand of the pigeon cannot be met by a grain diet alone. Access to a grit or pick stone is necessary for health. We have all seen the keenness with which birds allowed outside the loft examine areas such as the garden, incinerator, and gravelled surfaces. They are looking for the substances that a balanced mineral block contains. The practice of open lofting, although giving the birds the opportunity to find these things, is not without its risks. If health problems such as worms and Coccidia are present, then the droppings around the loft will contain infective eggs, which serve to reinfect the birds following effective treatments. The birds are also exposed to harmful fungi and bacteria. Many of the insects, such as slaters, around the loft can carry tapeworms. The Australian Pigeon Company's Mineral Block brings the minerals and trace elements that birds try and obtain from the loft environment into the loft in an hygienic form. The Mineral Block is palatable to the birds, which means that it is not only something that is good for them but something that they enjoy eating.
