Agree with what has been said we use vitamins for humans and other things only use any thing for pigeons when we need it.

its never been that expensive for me as I only ever have 50 pigeons maximum at any one time in the year and come winter down to 32 ...racing a big team has to be costly by comparison years ago I would think

No insentive for new Comer's just the basics with now birds could easily set you back a£1000 and don't think you would buy new for that even a small loft s/h t3 baskets boxes perches and drinkers

Ians got it spot on imo, pigeons are as expensive as you want to make it, if you want to buy all these medications which (apparently) turns average birds into top birds crack on, but for me I dont think its expensive if you keep within your means, I still get as much enjoyment out the 12 I keep as the next man who keeps 100, just my opinion though
