Heard of that mark, I think Darren uses it....I like ropa b liquid, but it's pretty expensive and the mans a snake who sells it, over the last month or so I've been using the vita pre pro combo from Nigel cowood which is only cheap and is good value for money ....

I use avidress for ybs and ropa for old birds ,reason being the avidress stops cross contamination in the drinker and better suited to the ybs from my perspective,with the old birds I use ropa as not so bothered about cross contamination from the drinker...I don't actually use ropa anymore I use dostopharm seems better quality to me ,I do know ropa have started to use homegrown oregano (dutch) instead of the Turkish stuff which is the best and has the higher concentrate of carvacrol which is the active ingredient in the oregano that benefits the pigeons ...avidress contains cinnamon and oregano along with naturals acids ...so could I have 1 product for each please lol!

OH there are so many on the market to choose from! When I first started I listened to everybody and needed 2 drinkers in each section 8 days a week to put all the products in for them!
Now I don't use anything apart from Garlic powder and Grit 2/3 times a week so I suppose Garlic and Grit for me.

I got some of the old 1980`s limited edition formula aviform a couple of weeks ago off nigel cowood, it is an anniversary edition based on molasses , we used this in the 80`s and was good stuff.

Absolutely true CC Smile Smile The CS bit I use opened my eyes etc years ago here Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes of what a rort most pigeon things are when a pigeon is placed on a bag/bottle. 8 dollars here & I buy 10 litres of pure water as such which I then turn into my CS mix. Turns into 20, 500 ml bottles, for me & my birds Smile Smile  which are around 35 dollars a bottle in the shops here. So Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes 10 from 700, means I'm 690 in front & that's "Big time, saving" & that makes me lol! lol! lol! Happy, happy happy Smile Smile.

Had a seniors moment, again here Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Fixed up now Wink Wink

Worms in Australia? Nah..they call them snakes there. Two legged ones also. Always fasinated me the wildlife there. Few months I was there cut sugar cane. The rodents and wildlife they burned out first was outstanding. Kangaroos, Wallabys, in other parts. Strange creatures. That is the basis of MMA. Kangaroos. I think...
