Any members using or used redcell multivitamins for their birds its originally for horses I put one tea spoon to a kilo of corn or a litre of water birds seem to absorb it better on the corn and it dries very quickly and goes a long way

I once used it a couple of years ago mark, cant say it was good or not to be honest ....I never saw an difference in the birds health, but I suppose its like anything else, people get used to a certain product and if they race well on it they stick with it.

I thought it was full of iron so helped the red blood cells carry more oxygen. I could be wrong though it has been known!lol!
Tried it few years ago on the Mark Caldwell system don't know if it helps or not but I do know I win more now than I did then.cheers

I've used redcell for years. Not on pigeons ofcourse, but I did use it rehabing birds. I use it twice a week on my birds now. I add enough to the barley or corn to coat very, very lightly. Droppings are fine, but definitely darker. As far as effectiveness? ...I don't know?

Think the pre-pro combi is good as it is soluble and easy to use.

Have not been able to get it lately so am using provit with yoghurt, seeing this post makes me think red cell and /or eqivalent would be a good carrier for the provit granules.

May even try it when racing, any thing that enhances oxygen levels can only be good.

If you doubt me ask professional cyclists

yes I`ve used primalac, seemed ok if used regularly , quite expensive tho` think one I got was around £40 - £45, altho` I have seen different brands cheaper, but if its the same or not I don't know.


I`ve also used a product called magic, similar type of thing but a fraction of the price, just as good by what I seen.

Mark, I don't which route you have taken, but redcell comes in pellets now. I bought a tub this weekend.
