Usually just have open loft. Today was different. Friend turned up. Wondering if I had any surplus birds. So I bit the bullet. He left with 20 young birds. Free. No peds, don't keep them any more.  he knew the reds were out of Gallez Oude vos, pieds and dark feathered legged ones out of Aardens. Blues van Loons. ll crossed of course. Just keep the good racers anyway. Shot another opossum two days ago and short on .22 bullets so he will pick me a box up. Plus a few sheets of plywood. Works both ways. Low 40's here today, gale force winds. So kept them in. They will fly until it snows heavy. He noticed a feral young bird in the loft. In answer to his question told him. Been coming in for 3 weeks now. No sick birds so immunity booster. He was surprised! He is a medicator. My med days are over. Lemon or lime juice only.

Seems to work last few years. Birds have open loft most of the time so clay and veggies and minerals are not lacking. Planting time I have to keep a closer eye on them all the treated seed corn. When I had 2,000 plus sows here years back, get an outbreak of something feed the chopped up young back to the sows. Plus all the antibiotics etc,. I realize that not all fanciers can allow open loft as such. So supplements are usually necessary.

When you talk about Lemon Juice visited a fancier close to the area i worked who had a small loft, went driving past one day and noticed the fancier in his front garden, stopped my car and asked about his loft and birds he asked if i wanted to see his birds which i said yes to, it was november time very cold but his pigeons looked like oil paintings just pure quality, very tame but the one thing i noticed in the water fountain was slices of fresh lemon when i asked the old fancier about the slices he said thats the only thing my birds have in there water every other day.
