the best thing is to get your birds tested it cost around £12.00
that way you will save money and know for sure what or if anything is wrong
guessing games cost money and time and wont correct things if your wrong

these r the best imo if u think something wrong with your birds http://www.belgicadeweerd.com/clinic-in-taiwan

I would get something in for canker in race season . and maybe some eloctrlyites .
I used jhonson tonic this season to be honest didn't see much difference .

ropa-b is a oregano based natural product ...I cannot recommend the product highly enough for keeping on top of canker,cocci,parasites and bacterial problems ...I have a droppings test done twice a year and for the last 3 years they have been clear Smile as for other products I like impact which is a iodine ,iron,vitamin b12 product made by gem products ...plenty of potions and lotions out their but these two are a must for me the iodine in impact is a must for the pigeons bodily functions and b12 is hard to get into a pigeons diet as its best source is shell fish their are other substitutes you could use but impact is cheap enough and economical to use as to is ropa-b ...theirs a lot of rubbish out their so be careful and spend wisely atb

yes I use the ropa  vita - mino.....which Darren told me about too, its in powder form, not a liquid and if I remember correctly it is one scoop to 2 litres of water.

as with all ropa products I think very highly of them, as Darren/oldstrain recommended them to me.
