most use it in powder form on the corn just moisten corn first ...when I used it I would give twice per week I have known fanciers give them to weary pigeons in tablet form ...I would buy some from a health shop in powder form much cheaper than one with a pigeon on ....if I remember correctly it was a tablespoon to a kilo of corn ,their are other things to use to get those b-vitamins if you don't fancy using the yeast powder then try zell oxygen its very similar in liquid form at a rate of 1 table spoon per kilo of grain also very good for racers I use it twice per week this can also be obtained from the health shop atb

I use it just once a week - in the afternoon on their corn.

I have a big 850g tub of the stuff made by Natural - but as Darren said, you can get it cheaper in the high street - except in frogland of course. You can get bugger all here, and if you can find what you want it is always 50% more expensive than what you think it should be. - End of my rant!

Mine says to use at 2 tea spoons to 500g of corn. I wet the corn with lemon juice sometimes, but mostly I use rape seed oil - bought from the super market at maybe a quid per litre. You only need a very little rape oil, mix that into the corn, then add the yeast and mix again.

The added advantage of using rape seed oil, is that it is excellent for the birds plumage especially leading up to and during the moult. I use rape seed oil all year round and my birds are always lovely and silky.

All the very best with your endeavours.

Phil

Never really used it on my patch etc, but it has stood the test of time from my perspective & so well worth the effort/punt I suspect John. Cheers.

If I remember rightly as a kid it was one of the only supplements my dad used, when I asked him why he used it, he said it had something in it that pigeons don't get in their food, which is Riboflavin.

I have never used it on the basis that it is a yeast and canker feeds off yeast. I don't canker my birds anymore and have never had any problems. whether this has any relevance I don't know but brewers yeast is a popular supplement that a lot of people use.

No expert C C & I could be wrong etc but I thought it is what was termed a dead yeast as such & I would suggest canker may have no relevance with it's use.
B - 12 for some reason also comes to mind.
Cheers.

Hi Knackered, just did a quick Google on it and as normal one study say one thing and another says another but your right about it being a dead yeast. I am no scientist and may have put 2 and 2 together and come up with 5. As I said it is a popular supplement but not one I choose to use. Another thing I don't use is multi vits as I believe they cause sugar build up and yeast feeds off sugar. This is only my opinion and I have no real science to back it up but it make me happy in my little world. cheers

C C. No scientist here either unfortunately. My expertise "laugh, laugh laugh" was to do with more of a human nature as such. Cheers.

Cowandchicken - can you please explain why you think Multi vitamins would cause a build up of sugars? And what type of sugar are you referring to.

I am not a scientist either but I do have a Degree in Anatomy and Physiology and studied body science for a couple of years.

In my limited experience I do not remember multi vitamins being any type of sugar.

There are many types of sugars - fructose, glucose, sucrose, to name a few - and to be honest with you I can't see how you are getting vitamins mixed up with sugars.

Maybe I have missed something in my studies, and I am always willing to learn, so over to you.

Phil

Hi Phil, I have no science on the subject just dvds and word of mouth from the old timers and just my opinion.

its the carrier agent that you need to watch not the vitamins themselves...e-coli will feed off sugars etc...

Brings to mind a test done here on many of the Oregano supplements etc O/S. Failed the pub test in a big way sadly & so one always needs to be wary of the fine print as such. Cheers
