Will a pigeon eat them...or are they like pony cubes...need to be layers pellet size....
Just looked online aprox£50 a tub 1.8 kg
Think the liquid is easier to use and not overdose...plus more economical

I like them FW. Little bit easier than messing with brewers yeast to soak it up a bit.

Wow. Yeah, the liquid would definitely be cheaper for you. Must be a little alot cheaper here for some reason. As far as overdosing, I can see that happening easily. With the liquid you know you get a more even dose. I tell you what $ here....flax seed! 50 bucks for a twenty five pound sack. More expensive than bacon a pound. I picked up 600 lbs of feed when we attended the club meeting.

I doubt I wil use much, except for moult. Our pigeon mix may be a little rich anyway. The guys still cut in 50% barley when flying the western open. I did give them a tablespoon of 12 12 mineral supplement tonight. They ate it immediately.

Anything you have need of shipping pigeon related is expensive as hell here. I was going to order some aluminum sputniks instead of building my own, but the shipping was more than the sputs confused

Sputnicks are easy to build Rom Smile Smile Unless Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes lol! lol! lol! your a brick layer hobbist type etc Wink Wink.

Great little photo Rom Smile Smile Handy being handy with the tools etc Wink Wink Sputnick's & flights on a race loft as such "I have both" are great little tools to have bounce bounce if one is looking to give ones birds that feel good moment etc from my perspective Smile Smile.  cheers

I had a productive first meeting knackered. Racing will get a little bit expensive as I'm going to have to take the Fridays that I race off. That is the only way to get my birds to basketing. The president of our club is going to give me some one on one eye tutorials. He gives speeches for the digest magazine. Told me not to worry about eye sign for now. He offered to let me borrow some of his expensive old birds (if my loft is secure), but I may end up having to put up an electric fence in a couple months. The bears will be awake in late April-early May. Evil or Very Mad so now I've got to get moving on the YB loft. Problem is......ground is frozen 3 feet. I may have to break out the jack hammer to get the posts set. I will put those white birds in a smaller loft of their own. No more white privilege lol!

Noonkester wasn't at the meeting knackered. I really wanted to pick hus brain too. I guess he runs a large ranching outfit

Good stuff Rom Smile Smile Bummer  Rolling Eyes  Rolling Eyes about the Friday bit etc. Still   bounce  bounce with an electric clocking system like Benzing there Wink Wink you can work Saturday & Sunday just to make up for it as such. Also lol! lol! lol! you can stick that Bear bit, right up you know where Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Smile Smile as I'm a skippy type of guy Smile Smile. Also, pity you missed Noonkester, but when you do meet him bounce bounce just give him a kiss & a hug so to speak lol! lol! lol! from a big skippy fan of his from down under Wink Wink. Now Rom, interest/knowledge/curious factor  Wink  Wink do you all present clocks on race day there or do you use some thing like what we here call Benzing live etc which some flyers now use, which allows then to send their times into a main computor/control for the results as such &  not have to present a clock to get a result. Waffle finished Smile Smile but with you having your first meeting there, one
less/small step on a long journey hopefully, one could say Smile Smile.   cheers
