WANT TO BUY PIGEONS?

Foy’s has it’s own lofts and raises top quality Racing Homers

breeders, as there are times we run low on some birds. We

guarantee that if we send you a pair of birds, they will be a cock

and a hen. We suggest you call the office before ordering; to be

sure we can fill your specific order. You may visit our lofts, and

we would be glad to spend time with you, but you must call to

make an appointment to visit.

The Purebred Pigeon magazine and Racing Pigeon Digest have

classified sections of birds for sale, and we suggest you call and

possibly subscribe to one or both of these top quality pigeon

Very knowledgeable on the health and

treatment of pigeons.

Foy's catalogs, she also designs our ads,

brochures and flyers. Veronica is the producer

of the Foy's on Facebook Show.

Veronica also creates and host many websites.

If you would like to have your own

site or your company's site, she will do all

the work for you.

Dan - Dan joined us in 2019 and we are

very pleased to have him on board. I call

him Dan - Dan the Pigeon Man because he

is the first employee to have a real interest

in keeping pigeons. Dan works in our

warehouse, packs orders, drives the fork

lift, and whatever he is asked to do he does.

20 years ago, Vickie and Jerry Gagne had

the opportunity to purchase the most respected

pigeon supply company in America.

We are so proud of the Foy's growth

and especially pleased to know both of us

are semi-retired. Two of our daughters are

president and vice president of Foy's.

After 18 years at the old building, we moved to a much more convenient building.

It is all on one floor. The new facility includes offices (4), packing areas (3),

and a store with most products on shelves with a display of many of the baskets

we stock. Connected directly to the packing area with direct access to the

warehouse. The approximately 6000 square feet of storage, contains all of our

bulk feeds, shelf after shelf of what we call hard goods. The hard goods include

feeders, drinkers, baskets, floor grills, tobacco stems, nest bowls, perches,

nest boxes, nest fronts, lots of books, and much, much more. The warehouse

also includes a full size forklift and pallet jacks for narrow spaces. There is also

a loading dock where trucks may back in for unloading as well as a place to unload all the international containers. With all this new

space, we still use another off site storage building. One of the biggest benefits to our visiting customers is the location. We are on Rte.

51 which is also called Constitution Blvd. This location is accessed from the Pennsylvania Turnpike or Rte. 376. The address is for the

city of New Brighton, which is our mailing address, but we are across the river from New Brighton. We encourage our customers to visit

during normal business hours, 9-5 and we are opened Monday thru Friday, but if you would like to visit on a weekend, arrangements

could be made. The new location, as of March 2017, is about 20 minutes from the old location, but if you want to visit our lofts, you must

call and let us know. My lofts are at our old location, just outside of Beaver Falls, Pa. Foy's is now the largest pigeon supply company

in America, and after 138 years, we continue to grow and add new customers regularly.

There is no product anyone sells that will replace sound loft management. If you are a beginner or “old pro”, it makes good sense to

invest in a good book that will answer many basic or often complex questions. #9010 or #804 are both good books which cover all

phases of pigeon raising. The book on pigeon health that I recommend is #805 or #9010. If you are in the white dove release business,

I suggest "White Pigeons, The Color of Money" #9002.

FEEDING

If you fly, show or race your birds, you must control the feed consumption. If you feed your birds and after 20 minutes or so, there is still

feed left, you are feeding too much. If they eat everything but leave some that they don’t like, I give them the leftovers the next day. Do

not allow uneaten feed to stay on the floor overnight, it will become contaminated and may result in sick birds. I suggest feeding twice

a day, morning and evening. I strongly recommend that you do your best to feed a mixed grain or pellet that is made for pigeons.

WATER

Many diseases are transmitted through the drinking water. It seems like birds think of their drinking water as a target. I’ve yet to find a

waterer that the birds can’t foul. It is a must to change water every day, twice a day is even better. When adding medications or vitamins

to the water, it is even more important to change the water every day. If you place the water drinker in the same place every day, make

sure the area under and around the drinker is dry. Dampness creates a perfect environment for disease to develop. I move my waterer

from place to place, thus allowing each location to dry. My favorite drinker and the only one I use is the #315 Large Ideal Drinker. It is

easy to clean and holds a gallon, which is important when adding medications, vitamins, etc. to the water. When the directions are to

add to a gallon of water, I do not have to measure out a gallon of the water. I just add the product and fill the pan. I also do not use a

heater. I just use two bowls for each pen, bring a clean one out, and bring the used one back in the house for cleaning. Keep in mind

that if you use lots of Apple Cider Vinegar, stay away from metal drinkers. This is true of any product that is acidic. The acid eats away

at the metal. The same is true of grit.

GRIT

Grit consumption changes from season to season. When you are breeding, they seem to eat more grit than feed. The reason for this is

the production of eggs in the hen and the mating process. Make sure good clean grit is in front of them at all times. Do not rely on granite

grit alone. Your birds need grit containing trace minerals and oyster shell. If you are using granite grit for chickens, I would suggest you

add grit concentrate, #676, to 50 lbs. of this grit. If you are using a regular pigeon grit, keep it clean and fresh. I use pigeon grit, but also

add pick pots, #5062. The bird’s body tells it what it needs and you’ll notice a change in consumption as the seasons change.

OVERCROWDING

Birds are very fast breeders and without planning, most people have too many birds. Never a day goes by that when I ask a fancier how

many birds they have, the answer is “too many”. If you don’t have the heart to cull or a way to dispose of birds, plan for the future. The

best thing to do is to separate all your hens and cocks and put them together only when it is breeding season. Another method is the

use of wood or plastic eggs, #155 or #3474. Dispose of a freshly laid set of eggs and the birds will set the dummy eggs for up to three

weeks, thus slowing down the young bird production. Have you thought of throwing one egg, from each clutch, away? When the pair

raises only one young at a time, the young are usually healthier and grow faster. If you allow your loft to become overcrowded, disease

will pay your birds a visit.

FLOOR COVERING

Nothing is more important than having a dry loft. Over the years I have tried just about every type of floor covering. In 2008, I ordered

a new product from Belgium called Natural Granulated Floor Covering. The floor covering is a natural product consisting of lava drawn

from the subsoil and has exceptional absorbing power. A very dry floor helps stop the contamination cycle of parasites such as Coccidiosis

and eggs of intestinal worms. I used a small pitch fork to pick up the clumps under perching areas and rake the floor. I replace

the floor covering once every 6 months to a year. I think this is the best floor covering you could possibly use. The next best would be

sand, followed by corn cob. Do not use straw or hay, as it holds moisture. Shavings and sawdust are messy and dusty.

FEED

I strongly suggest you feed mixed grain pigeon feed or pigeon pellets, and suggest you stay away from scratch feed or poultry pellets.

If you can not find a pigeon feed in your area, check with the companies that advertise in this catalog. They may know someone in your

area. Breeders may share with you where they get their feed. Keeping your feed vermin proof is very important, and a plastic or metal

barrel with a lid, is a good way to do that. I use a 5 gallon bucket with a lid to hold feed in small loft sections and most of the time I use

plastic trash cans with a lid. Hardly a day goes by that we don't ship out bags of feed in 10 lb., 44 lb., or 50 lb.

GENERAL INFORMATION

If there was just one loft management plan, I’d write a book about it. A sound plan really is one that works for you and most importantly,

works for the well being of your pigeons. The plan is really based on you, the breed(s) you raise, what part of the country you are in and

whether you show, race, fly or use your birds for ceremonies. Other variables include loft location, type of feed, the hours you have available

and on and on.

There are some basics however. I talk to people all day about the health of their pigeons. Most people do not vaccinate and all people

should. It is something anyone can do. You need to vaccinate for Paramyxovirus (PMV) and Paratyphoid (Salmonella). The PMV and

Paratyphoid may be done at the same time, and the best place to vaccinate the bird is behind the neck. I still use the regular syringe and

needles #177 and #505 on page 33. Should you have a question or concern in regards to vaccinating, call Foy's.

I am not a big believer in using antibiotics or medicines as preventatives. I think you should have medications on hand in case of an

outbreak. I do believe you should treat, before breeding, except for worms, Canker and Coccidiosis. We have individual treatments for

all three. You should rotate, from time to time, to prevent your birds from building up a resistance. 3-1 Powder treats worms, canker

and coccidiosis.

What should I have on hand? I tell people to try to prevent and treat only if you must. Yes, you should have a few meds on hand, but

with today's fast shipping, most products would be received in 2-3 days. I would suggest having on hand, products for canker, worms

and Coccidiosis. That product would be 3-1 Powder (#2500).

JERRY'S TIPS ON PIGEON HEALTH

One eyed colds are quite common and sometimes all you need to do is remove the perch. Some birds roost in a draft and you do not

even know it. If moving the perch doesn't help, I would try Spiradox Tablets or 1 Drop 1 Eye 1 Time. A good treatment for Paratyphoid

(Salmonella) is Furazolidone, Furaltadone 20% or Typhoid Cure.

Coccidiosis is easy to control, but keep in mind that Coccidiosis will develop resistance to a drug and I strongly suggest you rotate

drugs after 2 or 3 uses. Testing your droppings by a vet who was a pigeon fancier, through Foy's, will reveal many problems such as

Coccidiosis and Worms.

I like to keep tablets around to treat individual birds when it is the only bird that is ill in my whole flock. I segregate it and treat individually.

If I am not sure what the problem is, I use Tony's Divet or Amoxicillin tablets. If I suspect Canker, I would suggest Aviotrich

Tablets and if I suspect worms I would try Wormout Plus Tablets or Ekto/Endo. The best thing to do, when not sure what the problem

is, would be to SEND IN A SAMPLE OF THE DROPPINGS. We have a Vet, who is also a pigeon fancier, as an associate. He will

look at the droppings under a microscope, and in most cases, tell you what the problem is and suggest a method of treatment. For

more information and how to send the droppings, please go to page 17.

Parasites are always a problem. I dip my birds in a 5 gallon bucket, with about 3 gallons of warm water, mixed with Permectrin II, as

directed. Dusting also helps control parasites on the birds, although most drop off when the birds fly. I would suggest Diatomaceous

Earth as a dusting powder. #572 Bug Spray does an excellent job. Do not dip birds on a hot day.

Be sure to remember that when you use any drug on a pigeon, you must not eat them. No one really knows how long it takes for a

drug to clear out of a pigeon’s system. If you’re raising them to eat, then make it natural for your health’s sake.

I spend a lot of my time talking or answering e-mail inquiries, in regards to health concerns with pigeons. I welcome your calls, and

will do my very best to help, but you should be prepared to answer questions, which will help me help you. I strongly suggest you try

to develop a relationship with a veterinarian when possible. Some of the questions I will ask, and I hope you will be able to answer are;

What do the birds look like? How do they act? What color are their droppings? What kind of pigeons do you have? Do

you feed grains or pellets? What treatments have you tried and for how long? There will be other questions based on your

answers, but the initial questions are very important. Over the years I have had thousands of discussions of health issues in regards to

pigeons. Over the last few years, I have compiled a list on issues and answers to questions asked. I add to this list on a regular basis,

and this information is supplied to all of Foy's employees to use when asked about a pigeon's health issues. If you would like a copy of

the HEALTH TIPS I have created, contact Foy's on how to get the exact same pamphlet I have created for all of our employees. I write

health tips based on all the questions I receive from customers, and offer these to my employees, as an aid in answering questions and

learning more about pigeon health. If you would like a copy of these, JERRY’S TIPS may be purchased for only $10.00, this includes

postage. Ask for #9009, JERRY’S HEALTH TIPS.

We sell quite a few perches and each fills a particular need or situation. I raise solid (White) Racing Homers, regular Racing

Homers, and unusual colored Homers. Because I am trying to save cleaning time, I find that my favorite perches are the Space Saver

and the Block Perch. The question arises about bird droppings hitting the bird on the perch below. If your birds are healthy it is like

water off a ducks back. Recent addition of the nest box choices has created new favorites, once more, because they are easy to clean.

I use all the different nest boxes so that I may share my favorites. I use different feeders depending on my needs. All of my lofts use

the wood feeder with guard. I use the #1073 for grit, and each of the other sizes #1070, #1074 or #1075, depending on the number

of birds in each section,

I realize that many who receive this catalog are just beginning in pigeons and here are some random hints: It is OK to handle

eggs or young in the nest. I have switched young around from nest to nest, as long as the age is close to the same. Birds do not need

a bath, but do love to take baths. Dump the bath water as soon as they stop using it. All birds should be vaccinated to prevent PMV,

Pigeon Pox, and Paratyphoid. Change the drinking water every day. Separate the young into a separate section as soon as they are

old enough. You can tell if the young is old enough by checking under the wings. If you see no bare skin, then the bird is old enough

to be moved.

I certainly hope this information is of some use to you and remember….the reason we have so many choices is that everyone

has a different idea or need.

NEW BIRDS IN THE LOFT

I receive so many questions in regards to sickness in a loft. In

a great majority of the questions, I find out that the breeder has

recently added new birds to the loft, and did not quarantine

the birds for a period of time (30 days). You may be adding

perfectly healthy birds, but either your birds or the new birds

are not resistant to the same strains of a disease, and sickness

may be introduced to the loft. It is best, if possible, to keep the

birds in a separate building, if this is not an option, keep the

new birds separate as much as possible. While in quarantine,

keep a close watch and make sure the birds are healthy. You

may want to treat with 3-1 powder which treats the 3 most

common problems that pigeons have. If you observe what you

think might be a problem, call us at Foy’s and we will discuss

it. Over crowding your loft is an invitation for disease to rear it’s

ugly head. The birds are in the best health during cold months,

but in the warm weather, over crowding will create problems in

a hurry. A cubic meter would be approximately 40”high X 40”

wide X 40” long. This is the space one pigeon would take.

DISEASE BY NAME

• PMV - Birds should not be vaccinated any earlier than 3

weeks of age. Symptoms become worse when the bird is

under any type of stress. Vaccination during an outbreak is

recommended. An improvement may be noticed in the droppings

and the watery appearance will improve. No improvement

to the symptoms such as shaking, twisted neck, flying

irrationally, will occur after vaccination. Serious loft cleaning

and regular disinfection of food and water containers with

bleach is suggested. Young birds need two shots. They

have not developed any immune system and the first shot is

a primer. The second shot, 3-4 weeks later, is the antibody.

Adult Birds: If never vaccinated, it is the same as the young

birds. If vaccinated last year, they only get one vaccination.

• Coccidiosis - Treatments should be rotated between 2 or 3

different products as resistance to a particular product develops

after just a few treatments.

• Canker - Treatment should also be rotated between products

to prevent resistance.

• One Eye Colds - A wet eye may be an early sign of Ornithosis

or may simply be a result of injury. It may also be the

result of a draft or poor ventilation. If it is a harmless inflammation

it will disappear as a result of isolation in a warm, draft

free location in as short a period as 24 hours.

• Adenovirus - Large volume of droppings, foul smelling

and green in color. Many times complicated by e-coli and

often result in rapidly lost condition and high death rate. See

Viruses.

• Worms - Pigeons with hairworms are very prone to Coccidiosis.

Coccidiosis is resistant to treatment until the hairworm is

controlled.

• Pigeon Pox - Adult pigeons can show lesions and be completely

symptom free within three to four weeks, or more.

• Herpes Virus - In young birds, symptoms include being

hunched up, fluffed feathers and they move jerkily. Odd head

positions and crooked neck are common. Adult birds may

act depressed, lose weight, have nasal discharge, dirty

wattles and yellowish liquid in the mouth.

• Mycoplasmosis - Many times slime found in the throat

and threads of slime run from the throat to the roof of

the mouth. You can sometimes press down on the nostrils and

push out slime.

• Ulcerative Enteritis - Symptoms include the sudden onslaught

of profuse, smelly diarrhea followed by sudden weight loss. The

crop may be filled with undigested seeds.

• PMV and Paratyphoid - Vaccines may be given simultaneously

to adult birds. Vaccination is best. Vaccinate your birds

to prevent Paratyphoid.

Paratyphoid- I am of the opinion that Paratyphoid is an epidemic

in this country and is a very difficult disease to get rid of.

Symptoms may include some or all. Twisted Neck, difficulty in

flying or eating, dropped wing, wing boil, limp, green droppings,

young dying in the shell, one young dies in the nest and the other

seems fine, young dying after they are weaned and more. As you

will no doubt realize, it is difficult to diagnose Paratyphoid, if you

have concerns that your birds have Paratyphoid, contact Foy’s.

BREEDING SEASON

I always recommend separating the hens and cocks when you

are done with the breeding, until the next breeding season. If

you are unable to do this, close off access to the nest boxes,

Yes, some will insist on breeding and lay eggs on the floor, but

you cannot stop that. Separating gives them a break and time

to rest from the stress of mating, laying eggs, and caring for

young. Pigeons lay two egg, and the incubation does not start

until the second egg is laid. Pigeons must be offered a nest box,

nest bowl and in most cases, nesting material such as tobacco

stems or straw, not hay. Some breeders use only beach sand.

The cock sets the eggs from about 11 A.M. to 4 P.M. the hen

the rest of the time. If you want to know which is the hen, go in

a dusk or night, she will be on the eggs. I mark my cocks with

a blue marker band and my hens with a pink. If you want to

reduce the number of young you raise, throw one of the eggs

away, the one resulting young will usually be stronger as it does

not have to compete for food. You can switch eggs and young

around, just so they are about the same age. You can handle the

eggs at any time. If you do not want to raise any more young,

give the pair a bit of rest, and replace the eggs with false eggs.

Breeding is stressful, this is a good time to supplement the feed

or water with vitamins and probiotics, a good choice is Ultra Pro.

Mark all your eggs with the date laid in case you want to switch

them around. I use a sharpie pen and write the date on each

egg.

FEED & GRIT

I would not recommend any feed accept feed made for pigeons.

Mixed grains or pigeon pellets are the best. If you are

medicating your birds with a med that ends in “cycline” take

the grit away

Grit is a must, and once again, I recommend a pigeon grit, not

a poultry grit. If you can not get pigeon grit, consider our Grit

Concentrate, added to poultry grit. Lack of grit could result in

rough or soft eggs, and sometimes it will result in a temporary

inability to walk, due to lack of calcium, right after the hen lays.

1 bag of concentrate to 50 lbs. of poultry grit.

MISCELLANEOUS

• High pitched whooping sounds may not be respiratory. It

could be a small feather or grain husk caught against the wind-

pipe. It, will most of the time, work its way out.

• A chest that blows up like a balloon may be caused by

a ruptured air sac leaking under the skin. This many times is

caused during flight and is probably due to a blow or strain.

Usually, all that is needed is rest but air can be bled thru a

hypodermic needle.

• Amprolium - Do not combine with anything containing

Vitamin B during and for a few days after using amprolium.

• Oxytetracycline - May be combined with Tylan.

• Chlortetracycline - May be combined with Tylan.

• Tylan - May be combined with Oxytetracycline and Chlortetracycline.

• Doxycycline - May be combined with Tylan.

• Grit - If you are using any medicine that the name ends with

"cycline", take away the grit.

• Eggs hatch 18 days after the second egg is laid.

• Wet or discolored nose wattles are an indication of an

upper respiratory problem. It also may be there because

they are feeding young.

• If you have had pigeon flies in your birds, do not use loft

scrapings in or near gardens or flower beds. Newly hatched

pigeon flies will return to the loft.

• Think long and hard about introducing new pigeons,

especially youngsters, into your loft. Your birds could infect

the new birds or the new birds could infect young birds.

• Add 2 cc Ivermectin Inj. to each gallon of bath water. It

will kill lice and if they drink it, it will help worm but may not be

strong enough to be counted on as a complete wormer.

• Put your perches on one wall, when possible, this will

make it easier to clean up droppings which will mostly be

under the perches.

• Ronidazole is the most popular Canker treatment, but has

been used for so long, that pigeons have started to resist it’s

benefits. The 10% is no longer strong enough, double the

normal dosage of the 10% Ronidazole or switch to the stronger

Ronidazole 25%.

• Pigeons moult once a year. If you notice feathers all over

the loft, and this continues for a period of time, your flock is

most likely going thru the moult. There will be all kind of feathers,

not just the large wing feathers. Give consideration to a

product designed to create a good moult.

• Do not give Garlic before a race or flight.

• Want to add weight to your pigeons? Try raw peanuts,

unsalted of course.

• If your birds go light at about two weeks old, parents stop

feeding, parents drink a lot of water and the parents go crazy

for grit and eat just about all the grit you put In front of them,

these are typical signs of Clostridium crop and intestinal

infection. Try using a combination of Muscle & Wing plus Entromune

and Avio Gel for 7 days. Dose all ill birds separately

with Muscle & Wing for 7 days.

• If a single bird in the flock shows difficulty in breathing, with

a whistling sound, the most likely causes are either a fungal

or Canker.

• If a squab is Gurgling, it is most common just prior to

weaning, often there appears to be very little wrong with

these youngsters and the problem usually goes away when

weaned.

• Metronidazole can be combined with Spiramycin. Highly

effective against enteritis and respiratory infections.

• The difference between bacterial infections and viruses

is that you can kill bacterial infections with antibiotics but you

cannot kill viruses. The virus must run its course.

• Try swapping drugs from time to time. When you use one

drug too long, the effects will gradually be reduced.

• When using drugs, follow the directions and complete the

treatment as directed. If you use it for say 3-4 days and not the

7 days as directed, you may be doing more harm than good.

• If you have a history of Canker problems, treat before

breeding season and check the young in the nest on a regular

basis. You may use some canker meds while the birds are

laying on eggs. Pigeons may have Canker with no sign of the

yellow cheesy stuff most fanciers look for. Ronidazole is a very

safe Canker med.

• On occasion, a young in the nest will develop splayed leg.

One leg will stick out from the body. This is almost always

caused by a smooth surface in the nest bowl, and there is only

one young in the nest. If older than 10 days this condition is

irreversible.

• You should not use most antibiotics when you have

very young birds in the nest. The use of Ampicillin, doxycycline,

baytril (enrofloxin), streptomycin and gentamycin should

not be considered.

• Ivermectin, Baytril (enrofloxin), gentamycin and metronidazole,

used during the breeding season, may cause infertility.

• Without Vitamin D3, calcium cannot be absorbed from the

gut. In addition to Grit, give products that include Vitamin D3

It is very important to pigeons that they receive a continuous

intake of calcium, during the breeding season. Give the hens

calcium after the breeding season.

• Garlic is very useful for pigeons. The Alkaloids of Garlic

affect bacteria directly, just like antibiotics, without major side

effects.

• Paratyphoid and Salmonella are the same thing.

• When you are advised to quarantine your birds, if possible,

the quarantined pigeons should not even share air space with

the other birds. Quarantine should be a minimum of 30 days.

• Pigeons molt once a year, and if you used a drug during the

molt, you should not have. The effects could last for next 12

months.

• If you have “HARD” water, it may ruin some drugs. Tetracycline

or gentamycin in particular. Boil “Hard” water beforehand.

• Aloe Vera strengthens the immune system and hastens

recovery after illness.

• When using tetracyclines, you may combine with apple

cider vinegar.

• You may want to consider feeding your flying youngsters a

high protein diet, not over 18%. This higher protein diet encourages

growth and development. When you’re flying breeds

begin to fly longer periods, say up to an hour, modify the diet to

a lower protein.

• Want to put weight on your birds, try adding raw whole

peanuts to the birds diet. Peanuts contain almost 50% fat and

30% protein. Add 6-7 peanuts per bird on average would be

enough, for Racing Homers, building up reserves and stamina,

peanuts may be the way to go.

• Tobacco Stems are good nesting material and help reduce

parasites. Try soaking them and shaping them to fit inside the

bowl; dry completely before putting them in nest bowl.

• Enteritis means an inflammation of the digestive tract.

• Keep your carrying baskets clean. Parasites will live in the

basket as it collects droppings. Clean it and disinfect it regularly.

Feather Lice

Symptoms:

Small black lice can be seen on feathers next to the shaft.

Constant preening. Lice do not cause any disease but is a sign

of better care needs to be taken into consideration. Look at the

inside of wings.

How do you diagnose?:

You should see them with the naked eye, but may want to use a

magnifying glass.

Prevention:

Regularly dipping the birds in Permectrin II (#707/#709) as

directed. Spray suspected cases with #572 Bug Spray.

Treatment:

Spray, dip or powder. Secticide Spray, Permectrin II on a bimonthly

program until the problem is solved.

Pigeon Fly

From a family of biting flies, the most common is the Pigeon Fly.

Symptoms:

Restlessness

Stamping of feet

Fast moving fly between the feathers

Carrier of Malaria in pigeons

How do I know if I have pigeon flies?:

Close examination of the birds feathers, the fly will dart in and

out, trying to hide.

Prevention:

Clean all the nest bowls, nest boxes and loft, regularly. Do

not dump loft droppings close to the loft. Prevent any strange

pigeons from entering the loft. If you use the deep litter system,

do not allow dampness. Spray all the birds, if possible, every

eight weeks. Be sure to spray under the wings and all the tail

feathers.

Red Mites

Symptoms:

Pigeons become restless especially in the evening. Mites move

to the pigeons in the evening. Mites feed on pigeons sucking

blood in the evening. They breed in the loft but not on the

pigeons. They live in cracks and crevices.

Diagnosis:

Place cotton balls in the loft after dark. Examine the cotton

balls in the daylight to see small pin head sized red mites.

Prevention/Treatment:

Regular effective disinfection of the loft with a pyrethrum product

such as Bug Spray #572. Spray every 2 months. Apply Ekto/

Endo #2516 to the back of the neck as directed. Perch Oil

#7032 has been proven to be very effective against Red Mites.

Scaly-Leg Mite

A burrowing skin mite. Sometimes will burrow under the skin of

the feet and lay their eggs in tunnels that they create when they

entered. They may be seen on any part of the body and cause

irritation. Another common spot to find them is under the

beak in the crop area. They leave bald spots on the chest

and top of the head.

Treatment and Prevention:

Treatment and prevention is accomplished using Ivermectin or

Moxidectin #585. The use of Ekto/Endo has proven very effective,

#2516 and rotate with #2514. Many times it only affects one

or two birds in the loft.

INTERNAL PARASITES

Roundworms

Symptoms:

Lethargic, fluffed up

Loss of weight

Slimy wet droppings

Death of youngsters as a result of blockage of the intestines.

Transmission:

Adult worms lay eggs in the intestine.

Worms pass thru the droppings.

Eggs have to be in a moist warm environment for a few days

for the larval stage to develop.

Infected eggs may be picked up and eaten.

Larvae are released in the intestine of pigeons.

Larvae grow to adults that start laying eggs within 14 days

Larvae migrate to the liver and lungs.

Diagnosis:

Microscopic examination will identify the worm eggs.

Prevention:

Keep loft dry and clean.

Keep carrying baskets clean.

Prevent strange pigeons from entering loft.

New birds should be segregated, for 30 days, and treated

before mixing with other birds.

Treat preventively every 8-12 weeks.

Treatment:

Levamisole #2523

Fenbendazole (Wormout Gel) #74

Pyrantel (Avioworm) #2515

Ivermectin #581

Ekto/Endo #2516

Hairworms

Symptoms:

Lethargic and do not want to fly long. Wet droppings, sometimes

with a spot of blood. Dramatic weight loss. Death in

youngsters due to anemia.

Transmission:

Adult worms lay large number of eggs in the pigeons intestine.

Worm eggs are passed thru the droppings. Larval stage

develops in the egg. Worms eggs develop in a moist worm

environment. Infected eggs are eaten by the pigeons. Larvae

grow to adults in 14 days

Diagnosis:

Microscope will find them in the droppings. Necropsy will find

them in the intestine.

Prevention:

Keep lofts clean and dry. Make sure all your carrying baskets

are cleaned effectively and all droppings removed. Prevent

stray birds from entering the loft. Segregate all new birds for

30 days before mixing with current birds. Treat preventively

every 8-12 weeks.

Treatment:

Levamisole #2523

Fenbendazole (Wormout Gel) #74

Ivermectin #581

Pyrantel (Avioworm) #2515

Ekto/Endo #2516

Moxidectin Gel #585

Tapeworms

Symptoms:

Common reason for poor performance. Emaciation (Loss of

lots of weight). Tapeworm segments may be seen hanging

out of their rear. Not a common worm.

Transmission:

Segments of tapeworm filled with eggs are excreted in the

droppings

Eggs are ingested by the intermediate host. The eggs develop

in the host such as ants, snails, beetles and mites. The

host is ingested when the pigeon eats it.

Diagnosis:

Visual examination of the stool will reveal small pin head sized

segments.

Prevention:

Strict control of insects in and around the loft. Clean feed to

prevent food lice that may carry the Tapeworms.

Treatment:

Praziquantel which is found in Avioworm Powder #2515,

Ekto/Endo Tablets, Wormout Tablets #38, Wormout Gel #74.

Lungworms

Symptoms:

Pigeons tend to yawn and keep their beak open for a few

seconds after yawning. Clicking type coughing in the

evening. Extremely poor flying performance. Necropsy will

reveal worms in the throat.

Treatment: Clean loft and loft area. Insect control in and

around loft.

Treatments: Ivomectin #581 is the only effective treatment.

Paratyphoid

Paratyphoid is quite common in pigeons, and prevention attempts

are so important. If you do take preventive steps, you

will never know if you would have got the disease had you

done nothing, but is it worth the risk? Initial symptoms may

be mild to severe enteritis with green and tinged sloppy wet

droppings. In some cases the pigeons immune system may

be strong enough or the bacterial strain may be weak enough

to ensure that the bacteria does not gain entry into the body.

In most cases the bacteria (Paratyphoid) will soon gain entry

into the body and cause infections of the liver. (Hepatitis). The

droppings will become a dark green color signifying sever liver

damage. Once this happens the pigeon becomes severely

depressed (fluffed-lethargic) and will stop eating. The affected

pigeons will soon lose a lot of weight and may succumb from

the hepatitis. In most cases; symptoms may be difficult to distinguish

from PMV-1, a virus. Once the infection has established

itself in the ovaries the hen will become a lifelong

carrier and will pass the disease on to her babies via the

egg. If the joints become infected pigeons will develop lameness

in the leg or wing and it will establish itself in the joints.

The bacteria will hide in the joint fluid or in the membrane of

the joint. The fact that the normal antibiotics do not penetrate

well into the joint or the brain makes it difficult to eradicate the

bacteria.

Treatment:

It is important to realize that there is a marked difference in

treating the non–systemic form of Paratyphoid compared to

the systemic form (regular) When the bacteria has not yet entered

the blood stream and is only in the intestine, a short

course of the treatment with Furaltadone. Other antibiotics such

as Amoxicillin may also be used. Once the bacteria has however

entered the blood stream and a systemic status develops, a very

specific treatment must be followed. At this stage it is unclear

whether the treatment regime has the potential to clear the true

carrier state that exist in some pigeons. It is especially the joint

and the ovarian form that is extremely difficult if not impossible to

clear. Entromune and Avio-gel combined with an antibiotic, but

NOT Furazolidone or Furaltadone, may be tried. Many times combining

two antibiotics will do the job. Before combining any antibiotics,

you should consult an expert to be sure the combination of

antibiotics and the correct dosage. Typhoid-Cure is an extremely

effective combination of antibiotics. Another effective combination

of antibiotics is YBD-Cure.

Prevention Program:

Start 10 weeks before the flying, showing or breeding season.

1. Treat all the pigeons for 10 days with Typhoid Cure in the

drinking water. Combine the Typhoid- cure with Avio-gel and

Entromune over the food for the full ten days.

2. Vaccinate all the pigeons using KM-1 on the last day of the

treatment.

3. Continue your normal pre-flying or pre-breeding program.

4. Vaccinate all the pigeons again 3-4 weeks after the first vaccinations,

once again with KM-1 vaccine. The second vaccination,

called the booster is most important.

5. You may use any treatment, including antibiotics when using

KM-1 vaccine.

regards to pigeons, chickens or cage bird health. I am not a

Vet, nor is anyone on our staff. If you have a serious health

issue with your birds, please call a Vet. I have had pigeons

the better part of seventy years, and have read book after

book about bird health. The staff at Foy’s has been trained

by me and also thru repetition. A great majority of the calls

are questions we have been asked many times and the staff

most likely will be able to help you. In a male dominated

hobby, many callers ask for me. I think it is because the

caller feels as though a lady could not possibly know

much about pigeons, but believe me they do. Please

explain to one of our staff, what the issues are, if they do

not know or are not sure, they will call me at home. If you

need to call me, please do, but try the store first. I am now

retired from the day to day operation at Foy’s, but like most

small business owners, I am still involved. I still keep 200-300

birds. Having so many birds, I am always trying to find ways

to save time but still accomplish what I want do. Keeping the

birds bug free is important, and there is nothing easier and

better than Permectrin II. Follow directions, use warm water,

spread the wings and tail and rub the top of the head and the

neck under the beak.

TIPS:

If you add apple cider vinegar or lemon juice to the drinking

water, do not use metal containers as it will eventually eat

away the metal and cause them to rust.

When pigeons reach the age of three weeks or so, they have

an increased demand for a high protein feed. Corn is not

a high protein grain. High protein grains include safflower,

hemp and many pigeon pellets. Anything over 13% would

be considered high protein. Do Not Use Permectrin in hot

weather.


The Gagne family purchased the Foy’s Pigeon Supply Company,

in the year 2000, from Clair and Janice Hetland. The

Hetland’s were from Golden Valley, Minnesota, and operated

the company from there for over 28 years. The Hetalnd’s had

purchased Foy’s from Charles Foy from Clinton Iowa, who was

the son of Frank Foy, who started the business. I have always

thought that Foy’s was founded in 1887, but reading thru an

American Pigeon Journal, from 1922, I came across an article

written by Frank Foy. In this article I read that Foy’s Pigeon Farm

was founded in 1883, in Des Moines, Iowa. So in the year 2020,

Foy’s is now 137 years old and still going strong.

The Gagne family has taken the company back to its roots, by

adding poultry supplies to the products offered. Frank Foy started

the company by selling Pekin duck eggs and eventually adding

live ducks and chickens. Charles Foy took over the business

in the late 1930’s or early 1940,s, and the company became a

pigeon only company, with most of the emphasis on pigeons as

a meat animal, featuring Kings and Carneau pigeons. Charlie

Foy led the business to greatness, building a large and loyal

following. I actually met Charlie Foy at my home in Maine, never

imagining that the Gagne family would sometime own Foy’s.

How that all happened is another story. (By the way, when

Charlie Foy visited my home in Maine, he asked if I was interested

in buying the Foy's business. This was in the mid 60's.)

FOY'S STORY

Clair and Janice Hetland grew the Foy’s company to be many

times larger than the company had ever been. Innovative ideas

and Clair’s background as a pharmacist, allowed the company

to expand the medication line and Clair formulated the biggest

selling vitamin powder in America. He also created a concentrated

grit supplement. The Pigeon Builder vitamin that Clair

formulated, sells well over a ton every year, and the Grit Concentrate

is still an excellent seller.

The Gagne Family, in its own right has introduced many innovations.

A website, full color catalog, toll free phone, same

day shipping, Facebook, Twitter, advertising space for pigeon

breeders, cage bird products, droppings analysis and sale of

pigeons and much, much more. We now import containers

from Belgium, Taiwan, Poland and Spain. We order from Belgium,

Taiwan, Poland, Spain, South Africa, Norway, Germany,

Australia and England. We have our own associated wood and

metal shops, and are able to custom build anything in wood or

metal. We also offer website design, advertising literature and

personalized business cards.

Note: I asked Clair Hetland, the gentleman, who along with his

wife Jan, purchased Foy’s Pigeon Supplies from Charles Foy,

for his comments on the history of Foy's. The following are Clair

Hetland’s comments.

I began selling pigeon medications from the pharmacy I managed

in 1961. I had a small line of products that I had used and

knew they were both safe and effective. I used the American

Pigeon Journal to reach the customers. The pharmacy gave

me half the profit from the sales. The pharmacy owner was not

happy because I spent time selling pigeon products. So I said

fine. I took the business home. I still worked at the pharmacy

but I operated the pigeon business at night.

Many of the products I sold were “manufactured” or repackaged

Foy's was founded in 1883.

Other important events of 1883:

• Brooklyn Bridge open after 13 years of construction.

• An F5 tornado in Rochester, MN leading to the creation

of the world famous Mayo Clinic.

• Adventure of Pinocchio was first published in book form

FOY'S STORY

by Foy’s. Whenever I ordered more products from Charles Foy,

I would ask him if he was ready to sell his business and would

he give me a shot at it. One day the phone rang and it was

Charles. Charlie Foy said if you want the business come on

down and see if you like it, spend a week. See what it is like.

I visited with Charlie and saw what a dynamo he was. He and

his wife, Lucille, showed me the ropes. Charlie filled me in on

what the business was all about. The business was started

by Charlie’s father Frank Foy. Frank Foy worked in a factory

that made incubators and other poultry products. Frank also

raised poultry and water fowl. He had a small pamphlet that

he would toss in each outgoing order. That was the beginning

of Foy’s Pigeon Supplies.

Charlie Foy, Frank’s son, was many things. Highly respected in

his state and he was a small plane, open-cock pit pilot. Charlie

disposed of so many chickens and their eggs that he was the

only person to test for New Castle disease. It did not make

him ill, but it showed up in his blood tests. The pigeons were

a continuance of the poultry breeding. It was harder to raise

chickens.

could not operate it part time. I sold the business and moved

on with my life.

I became a home improvement contractor and in this line of

work, I would climb on to roofs to inspect them. One day I

was on a roof and happened to look down into a neighbors

yard and I saw two pigeon lofts. The next day I spoke to the

owner, Joe Piltz, and I came home with a box of pigeons. No

loft, no cages or anything else, but I had pigeons! Being who

I am, the pigeons led to Jerry’s Pigeon Supply. As the small

business grew, I had an occasion to speak to Clair Hetland.

Clair was a real gentleman and helped me find some pigeon

products I was looking for. I started to buy products from Clair

and over the course of time, I asked the same question that

Clair Hetland asked Charles Foy. I told Clair that if he ever

wanted to sell Foy’s Pigeon Supply, please give me a shot at

it. It wasn’t easy, but I think it was meant to be and with Clair’s

help, I ended up buying Foy’s. Two of my sons, Kim, and I flew

to Minnesota. We spent 3 days and loaded two tractor trailers

full and on a Friday left for Pennsylvania. The Minnesota phone

number was forwarded to Pennsylvania and on Monday we

were taking orders. The year was 2000.

ORDERS: 1-877-355-7727 • FOYSPETSUPPLIES.COM

Selling Pigeons requires a person who could tell the sex of

birds. Foy’s had such a man and could almost guarantee

pairs. When this man died, Charlie gave up on the live bird

sales. The end of railway express also convinced Charlie to

stop selling live birds and that is when it became 100% pigeon

supplies.

Our business in Golden Valley, Minnesota grew by leaps and

bounds. My family was very involved but both daughters had

careers and Janice was ready to retire. Then I had a heart attack,

so we were lucky to find Jerry Gagne to buy us out. It

was luck for Jerry too. ~ Clair Hetland

The following are Jerry Gagne’s Comments.

I have had pigeons and sold pigeon supplies most of my life.

When I was 21 years old, my brother Bob and I became partners

in the pigeon business. We had a friend, Ray LeBlanc ,

who owned a small pigeon supply business and we asked if it

was for sale. Ray was a real gentleman and made it very easy

for us to buy his business even though we had very limited

money. We actually bought it by making payments to Ray. I

just never imagined that LeBlanc’s Pigeon Farm was the beginning

of this long road to Foy’s Pigeon Supply.

My brother, who was a carpenter, handled the building of all

wood products as well as whatever needed to be done. We

changed the name to Gagne Bros. Pigeon Supply and operated

in Maine for several years. (Charles Foy visited us on one

occasion.) I lost my regular job in 1969 and made the decision

to move to Pennsylvania where I had a job offer. I bought out

my brother and moved everything to Clinton, Pa. (Quite amazing

isn't it that I moved to Clinton, PA and operated a pigeon

business which eventually bought Foy's a business that once

was located in Clinton, Iowa.) I operated a business from Clinton,

Pa. I ran the Gagne Bros. Pigeon Supply until 1974, but

with a growing family, it was just not enough income and I

The Gagne Family is just the third family owner over the past

137 years. The company has survived depressions, wars, recessions

and so much more. Pet fanciers are very loyal, and if

you give service, they will stick with you.

The president of Foy’s is Kim Hare, who becomes a second

generation leadership of the company. Sherry is a 14 year

employee and there is hardly a job that she has not handled.

Veronica will be in here ninth year and creates all our advertisements,

creates and monitors our web site, creates a market

for other services we offer such as web site design, business

cards , promotional items and all the catalog prep work. Our

daughter Gina, a 20 year Navy veteran, is in charge of Inventory,

and anything else that's needs her attention.

Vickie, my wife, is in charge of all the seamless band sales,

packs, ships, and answers the phone. Together we have built

the business and enjoyed the inclusion of family members.

I am now semi-retired from the company and have decided

to try to give back to the pigeon community. I still create the

catalog with Gina and handle our pigeons, but for the most

part, at the age of 79, have stepped back from the day-to-day

operations. I served as the President of the National Pigeon

Association and spent much of my time trying to make the

NPA bigger and more service oriented. If you are not a member

of the National Pigeon Association, please contact me, I

will be glad to answer any questions and hopefully send you a

membership application. I currently serve as chairman of the

National Pigeon Association - Legacy Fund Trust.

In 2017, Foy's moved to a new location to better serve our

customers. We are now located across the river from New

Brighton, PA.

RACE QUALITY RACING PIGEONS

Over the last 6-7 years, Foy’s has sold 1000’s of quality

pigeons. We know we are doing something right when we

have repeat customers time and time again. We have our own

lofts at my home. I no longer race my birds, but still enjoy the

whole process of keeping pigeons. Yes, I even enjoy cleaning

the loft. Birds we have sold have won at all distances, including

a winner at 500 miles. We do not raise every racing homer

we sell, but we do guarantee, that if you are looking for quality,

we have it. When needed, we purchase birds from local

lofts, but not just any loft. We acquire birds from three top lofts

in the race combine, and these birds are made available to

Foy’s, because the breeder would prefer they be shipped out

of their area. They do not want to offer them locally because

they do not want to compete against their own birds. If you

want quality racing pigeons or rollers, we have them. We

offer no particular strain or color, and the color of the racing

pigeons is not important, we just want good racers.

YOUNG RACING PIGEONS

Raised by Foy's and two local breeders, the young birds are

all from our breeding teams, and have never been out of the

loft. When we ship, they are old enough to eat and drink and

are seamless banded. We can not sell young birds by pairs, as

they are not old enough to know the sex of the birds, when we

ship them. All orders are shipped in the sequence that we receive

the orders, so order early and be sure to get them before we sell

out. You should keep the young birds in the loft, with access to an

aviary, for two weeks, before releasing them.

BREEDING PAIRS OF RACING PIGEONS

We sell mature breeding racing pigeons year round and can ship

year round. We do separate our hens and cocks when we are not

breeding, so we can not guarantee mated pairs, but we do guarantee

a hen and a cock. You can never allow these birds to fly free,

as they will eventually try to return to where they were born or first

released. We feed a mixed grain, commercial pigeon feed and you

should try to do the same. If you do want a particular color, we will

do our very best to honor your request, but it is not always possible.

TIP:

Breeding normally lay one egg in the evening, and a second

one two days later. When the second egg is laid, the incubation

period of 18 days begins.

All pigeons are shipped through the post office by Express

Mail directly to your home or address you supply.

RARE COLOR RACING HOMERS

The racing pigeon remains the single most popular breed of pigeons, and within the breed, many racing pigeons are enjoyed,

not for their ability to compete in club races, but for the beautiful colors. If you wish to fly colored homers, train them

like any other racing pigeon. They are quite capable of flying 100 or more miles.

ROLLERS

ORDERS: 1-877-355-7727 • FOYSPETSUPPLIES.COM

Rollers are the second most popular breed of pigeons, after Racing Homers. Our Rollers are top quality birds and will roll as promised.

Rollers are acrobats of the pigeon hobby and it is a real blast to watch a kit of Rollers take off and get to gather as a group, At

some signal, known only by the birds, they start tumbling to the ground, doing somersaults almost all the way to the down. At the

end of their roll, they gather up again and fly back up to the height needed to roll down again. Rollers come in all different colors,

but we do not necessarily have them for color, we have them for their ability to roll. We will try to send the colors you like, but can’t

promise to send birds as lose to the colors you are looking for. Rollers are a small breed about half the size of Racing Homers, and

a bit smaller than the wild birds you see on the streets or roof tops. Rollers are very active, bright eyed and just love to fly. They are

easy to breed and great parents. Keep in mind that Rollers have little to no homing instinct, so you can purchase breeders and they

will stay return to your loft. I would suggest you keep them in the loft for 3-4 weeks before releasing the new birds, and you need

an outside landing area and a removable aviary. The aviary offers the birds the opportunity to enjoy being outside and also allows

them to observe their surroundings before being released to fly. Prices do not include shipping cost nor the special boxes

that must be used to ship the birds. Birds are sent by express mail, thru the post office.

PRICE DOES NOT INCLUDE THE SHIPPING BOX OR THE AIR MAIL SHIPPING COST.

DROPPING ANALYSIS

We are quite pleased to offer a great new service to aid you in

knowing more about the health of your flock of pigeons, poultry

or cage birds. We have enlisted the help of an experienced

veterinarian who will look at droppings that you have sent, and

give you an idea as to what is wrong and what to do. Droppings

analysis will not find viruses, paratyphoid or other bacterial infections.

It will find coccidiosis, worms, parasites, yeast infections

and other problems.

Here is what you have to do:

Collect about a tablespoon of fresh droppings. This tablespoon

can be a mix of your flock, or if you have problems in just one

section of your loft, collect the Tablespoon from just that one

or two sections. It should be a general sampling of a number

of the birds. If you are concerned with just one bird, isolate the

bird and collect just the dropping from that one bird, you will not

get a tablespoon, but get as much as you can for overnight and

the morning before mailing them. The surface, under the bird

should not be anything that will absorb the urine (plastic or metal

is best). The droppings MUST BE AS FRESH AS POSSIBLE

when you send them. Do not collect them from newspaper or

an absorbent surface, because the urine would be blotted up,

and we need all of the droppings. If you are sending more than

one sample, place each sample in a plastic zip lock bag. Mark

each bag you send to us, with a number or an identification of

some kind. This is important because we want to be able to

refer to each bag. Put all the ziploc plastic bags in a padded

envelope and mail them to Foy's. Padded envelopes are sold

at a store such as Staples or the post office. If the samples are

not in a ziploc bag and padded envelope, the droppings will be

destroyed. We will call you with the results and a suggestion of

treatment.

Include a check or money order, or you may call with your credit

card number.

Analysis one sample $40.00

Additional samples sent together

$20.00 (on same order)

Checks or Money Order made out to Foy's, Mail, via Priority Mail

or express mail, to: Foy's Pet Supplies, 453 Constitution Blvd.,

Dept. D, New Brighton, PA 15066

Please call 724-843-6889 should you have any questions and

ask for Sherry.

TIP:

A big part of the pigeon hobby is the friends you make and

the best way to meet other pigeon fanciers is to go to a

show or two. Another way is to join a club such as the National

Pigeon Association. Pigeon keeping is also a way to

spend time with the family, but make the experience fun. I

know of a number of situation where a fancier is too strict

and the child will not consider it fun. Let them chose a bird

or two and let the child name the birds. Don’t consider the

child as an extra hand to clean coops, unless of course they

consider it fun and not a chore.

TIPS:

If you are mailing eggs or moving them from one nest to

foster parents, do not place the eggs in a sealed container

such as a plastic bag. A fertile egg dies within 4-5 hours

from the lack of oxygen. If you are sending pigeon eggs

on a plane, keep in mind that if the eggs are in the hold

they could freeze or even explode because of change in

pressure.

Wood Floor Grate

A really heavy duty wood

floor grate of solid oak, which

measures 47 ½” X 39 ½”. These units

may be used as a floor for a new loft,

or as a built up floor for your existing

floor. Because of the super strength of the grate, it needs no

center support, only support around the edges. Other possible

uses are at the entrance to your loft to clean your feet

or as a deck around the loft. Because of the size, we can not

ship the grate by UPS, unless we cut it in half, lengthwise.

We will cut it at no additional charge. If you order 10 or more,

it need not be cut because we will ship it via truck freight.

#1649 Wood Floor Grate $65.00

#1650 Wood Floor Grate 10 pack 550.00

Show Cage Grill

These lightweight grills are designed

for placing in a show

cage. Many clubs have discontinued

the use of shavings in a

show hall. Without something

for the bird to stand on, they will

be standing in their own droppings.

The grill may also be used in a nest box, under the

nest bowl. I personally use them under my water containers.

Moisture that collects under the water container will be

a breeding ground for disease. You may also use them on

the bottom of your carrying basket which keeps the bird’s

feet clean without the use of shavings, which may irritate the

bird’s eyes. Easily cut to fit any basket. 9 ¾” X 9 ¾”.

Anit-Roost Spikes

Anti-Roost Spikes are specifically

manufactured to prevent birds

from roosting in areas that the

Spikes are installed. Light weight,

stiff wires are angled in such a

way that birds cannot land or

stand on them. Used on the top or lower edge of a roof,

outside window ledge, inside the loft in places you do not

False Eggs

False eggs are used for

a number of purposes.

Pigeon fanciers use them when they want to stop raising

youngsters. They remove the real eggs and replace them

with the false pigeon eggs. Pigeons do not know the difference

and will sit on these false eggs until past the normal

hatching date. Pigeon fanciers also will place under the pigeon

when the hen stays in the nest bowl as though they

have eggs but in fact they have not laid. It is thought that

if you put false eggs under the pair, they will sit on them

until the hatching time and this may start the regular cycle

of laying eggs. Chicken fanciers may not want to raise any

more peeps and when a hen goes broody and will not leave

the nest, the eggs are removed and replace with false eggs.

Cage bird fanciers use them for the same reasons. Some

fanciers like the wood and others prefer the plastic, where

possible, we offer both. The cage bird eggs are all available

in plastic only.

Ideal Bath Salts by Versele-Laga

Parasites, mites and so on are a real

problem with any pigeon loft. They

damage feathers and put your pigeons

under stress. Pigeons that cannot relax in their

loft are never going to be in the best of condition,

and for this reason it is very important to treat pigeons and

their accommodations such as the loft, baskets and aviaries.

The Ideal Orange Bath Salts in the bathwater gives the

pigeons soft feathers and helps maintain the strength

and water-resistant function of the feathers. One tablespoon

to 2 ½ gallons of bath water and remove after they

are done bathing. In the winter, one bath a week, flying season

one or two times a week. Give cold bath water in the

morning and warm bath water after a race or competing.

The Large Bath Pan is made of very

sturdy plastic and has the extra benefit of having

a drain plug. When you fill a bath pan, it

is easy, but when you want to throw the bath water out, it is

rather heavy. With this pan, pull the plug and it drains out. Pigeons

just love baths and willingly jump right in, no matter the

weather, even on a sunny day in the winter. Add pigeon bath

salts and your birds are cleaning their feathers and helping to

eliminate parasites as well. This Large Bath Tub is 8” deep, so

"Building Pigeon Lofts Legally"

The purpose of this book is to help you

avoid many of the problems that can occur

when you attempt ANY residential or hobby

building project. I hope you follow my

advice. I have had various consultations

with government department officials over

the years, and want my knowledge to be

useful to others. Whether you want to build

or remodel a pigeon loft, an outbuilding or

a new house addition, this book will help

guide you. Some people are going to be interested in stopping

your project, because they may not have learned what an interesting

hobby you have. That makes it necessary to proceed with

your project legally, and carefully. In portions of this book I give

you information about my worldly travels, and insight about lofts

and flying in Japan. I lived and traveled there 18 months. I joined

the Aomori City Racing Pigeon (desho bato) Club, and raced pigeons

of two young bird seasons. My life would have been much

less interesting without my Japanese tomadachi "friends". I want

to thank them for the friendship they shared with me, and show

you how devoted to the sport they are.

Foy’s 4-1 Trap

and Landing

Platform

This unit is meant for the fanciers

with a small loft or a small

flock. The units are called 4-1

because the serve as a trap to

keep the birds in when you do

not want them outside, they

act as a one way door that

allows your birds to enter on

return from a flight, but once in, they cannot go back out.

Should you make your own aviary or decide to purchase a

quality, pre made aviary from Foy’s, the third use of the 4-1

Trap is by placing an aviary on top of the landing board, you

can open the trap and this allows the birds to be outside

in the aviary, but not able to exit and fly outside. The 4-1

includes a turn button to allow the trap bobs to stay in the

up position and the birds go in and out as they please. The

unit creates a varmint proof entry by locking the platform in

the up position. The wood frame is made of pine and we

suggest you consider painting the wood as it is exposed

to the elements and painting will allow the unit to last even

longer. I must say that I have not painted mine and it has

been installed for over 15 years. The bobs are feather light

aluminum that will never rust. The Standard 4-1 Trap and the

Large 4-1 Trap and Landing Platform projects out 12”. The

Standard is 18” from left to right and the Large is 24” left to

right. MADE IN FOY'S OWN WOOD SHOP. Custom sizes

available.

Foy's Landing Platform Only

Over the years we

have had request for

a Landing Platform Only, so we

have now made it available. These

Landing Platforms are meant for

the fancier who has only a few

birds that are flown and no need for a large landing area. You

may also want to cut another opening in a loft and need a

landing platform for a few birds. We offer this platform in three

sizes. The standard Landing Platform is 12” left to right, and

the larger one is 18” from left to right and the extra-large Platform

18” X 48”. The wire used in all of the Landing Platforms

is 1” X ½” which is small enough to allow pigeons to walk

on with no problem. In the Extra-Large Platform, you may

want to place the bath on it and the splashed water will end

up on the ground. White pine framing for all three sizes and

we suggest you paint the wood for years of service. Custom

sizes available. MADE IN FOY'S OWN WOOD SHOP.

TIP:

The harmful nature of moldy nesting material is usually

underrated, however dusty, damp straw of stems

are equally life-threatening to babies and even following

generations. Moldy straw is forbidden to use in any form

and should be destroyed.

Foy's Aluminum Trap

Finally a trap that will last a lifetime with

no worry about rotting out over time.

The FOY'S ALUMINUM TRAP is made in Ohio

by our own John Raber. John has been working

for Foy's for quite a few years now, and we

constantly receive compliments about his quality wood products,

and in the last couple of years he has been able to create new

products such as our Aluminum Bobs. The FOY'S ALUMINUM

TRAP, is made similar to our Foy's Bob Trap. In order to release

the birds to fly outside, lock the bobs in the up position, and they

are free to come and go as they please. Drop the bobs down and

they no longer can go outside after they return and drop into the

loft. The heavy Duty bobs are 3/16" thick but very lightweight.

The bobs will not bend if a bird or critter tries to enter when they

are locked in position. All aluminum construction with plastic

corners, will not rust or corrode. Custom sizes are available,

please contact Foy's for a quote.

Aviary

Because this is

meant to be outside,

we suggest you prime and paint

the wood to make it last years and

years. There may be a higher shipping

charge for the extra large Aviary. When you want your birds

to have free access to fly outside, just remove the whole aviary.

The small is 18" long x 12 ½” x 12 ½” high. The medium is 24"

long x 12 ½” x 12 ½” high. The large is 36" x 12 ½” The extralarge

ORDERS: 1-877-355-7727 • FOYSPETSUPPLIES.COM

I SHIP HUNDREDS OF PIGEONS EVERY YEAR, and these are the

boxes I use, They are strong, well ventilated and easy to carry. I do

tape the bottom edges before I put the birds in the box. We are so

lucky to be able to ship birds thru the post office. I do not want to upset

them by having shavings dust escaping thru the bottom cracks. I

also do not complain if they are supposed to be there in one day and

they take two days. I once had a shipment get lost and it took six days

to get to my customer, would you believe every bird arrived alive! No

feed or water for 6 days, arriving in two is absolutely not a problem.

SHIPPING BIRDS (THE DO'S AND DON'TS)

DO

• Feed and water birds prior to shipping.

• Place litter or bedding in the bottom of the box to collect

moisture, reduce odors, and provide a foothold. I use straw.

• Call the recipient and give them the tracking number and

expected arrival date.

• Write the shipping address on the box in case shipping label

comes off.

• Add #295 Save-A-Chick to the drinking water 2-3 days before

shipping.

• Tape the bottom cracks to prevent dust from escaping.

DON'T

• Do not remove the white breathable membrane from over the vent

holes. The membrane protects your birds from airborne disease,

reduces excitability, stress, and is required by postal regulations.

• Do not ship birds in very hot or very cold weather conditions. It is

hotter in the box and extreme heat can be fatal to your birds.

IF IN DOUBT - DON'T SHIP.

• Do not over pack the box. To many birds in a box can cause

over-heating and stress which can be harmful or fatal.

• Do not ship birds over the weekend or holiday. They may

become stranded.

• DON'T MEDICATE WHEN SHIPPING BIRDS.

paratrooper who parachuted into enemy territory and used the

pigeons to send messages back to headquarters. They are in

good condition , but a bit musty from 78 years of storage. 12” X

SLIMY DROPPINGS:

The cause is Giardia or Hexamita species. The droppings

become slimy and wet with occasional blood spots seen,

Green discoloration is seen. Pigeons strain to pass droppings

but produce very little at a time. The vent or anal

feathers become green and soil the vent. Treatment would

be Ronidazole or Dimetridazole.

All American Nest Box,

Without Front

The nest box will accept a nest front

on 24" X 12". Some folks have their own nest fronts

or have a particular need for an empty box. I have used just the

box without a front in one of my lofts and am quite satisfied with

the results. I place a clay or heavy nest bowl in one corner of the

box and have absolutely no problems. It is very easy to clean the

box as there is nothing to catch the scraper on. I remove the

nest bowl and in a matter of seconds, the box is clean and I put

the bowl back in. The box outside measurements are 16" from

to back, 25 ½” left to right and 12 ¾” high. I stack them 4 high,

and when the breeding season is over, it is very easy to remove

the boxes, as there is no need to attach them to a wall or to

each other. Removing the boxes after breeding season gives

me more room in the loft and I can add perches for the cocks or

hens after I separate them. Custom sizes available.

Simplicity Nest Box

This nest box has always

been very popular,

but I was never quite satisfied with the

design. It worked fine, but the center

divider had a tendency to move. I discussed

this problem with John Raber, our shop manager.

John has come up with a new design. I am quite pleased

with it after testing it in my loft. The divider is very easy to remove

when you want to clean the nest box. The new design

now locks the divider in place, and will not move. The idea of

the divider is to allow the pair to have young on one side and

then the second set of eggs is laid on the other side. The size

of the box is such that you may also use a nest front such as

our #115 or #120. 25 ½” x 16" x 12 ¾” high. Custom sizes

available.

Divider And Drawer For All

American Nest Box

Many fanciers build their own

nest boxes, but may not have the

tools to build a tray like the one we

supply with our Simplicity Nest Box. The tray is made to slide

into the bottom of a nest box, the same size as our #1016

Simplicity Nest Box. The tray slides right into the bottom of

a box that is 24" from left to right and 16" deep. It has a 4'

board in the front, from left to right and a divider as part of the

tray, to create a double nesting box. Make your own box and

save lots of money, especially on shipping you would pay on

the entire box. Custom sizes available.

These boxes are supplied with

out a front, but are made to fit

our Large Nest Fronts and they also fit

our #3574 Plastic Nest Fronts. For larger

breeds, it really works well if you use no

nest front at all. I have used them in my lofts, without a front,

and it makes it so much easier to check the nest bowls and

young with out taking any front off. It is easy to scrape out

the droppings from the young on a regular basis. Measures:

29 ½” long by 14 ¾” by 16 ¾” high (outside measurements).

Large Simplicity

Nest Box

This Nest Box has

the same measurements as the

Large Nest Box, 29 ½” x 14 ¾”

x 16 ¾” high. It includes the Divider

to create a Simplicity Nest

Box, but with the large Nest Box. It does not include a front,

but it is sized to fit Large Nest Front as seen on the previous

page, #147-#150. These Dividers are great, when babies

get to be 2-3 weeks old, you may want to move the babies

to the other side of the Nest Box, and the clean out where

the young were, in preparation of the parents laying again.

The divider slides out of the box for cleaning. We offer just

the Divider for those who may wish to build their own Nest

Box, and purchase just the Divider. Should you want to add

a nest front, perhaps you want to close up the nest after

breeding season, our Large Nest Fronts fit the large nest box.

Divider and Drawer for

Large Nest Box

Many fanciers build their own

Nest Boxes but may not have the

tools or skill to create the Simplicity

Divider for the Large Nest Box. The

Divider slides right into our Large Nest Box. The Simplicity Divider

creates a separate nesting area for one pair. Young can be on

one side, and when the parents are ready to lay again, move the

babies to the other side, keeping the eggs from getting soiled or

accidently broken. Should you wish to use a nest front with the

divider, it is built to also accept the front. By making your own

box, you save money by building it yourself and also the shipping

charges to ship a large box. CUSTOM SIZES AVAILABLE.

Breeder - Sick Bay - Quarantine Unit

A complete unit that may be set on the floor

of the loft , hung on the wall or stacked one

on top of the other to create an eight nest

unit. The unit may be used for mating individual

pairs, and is the pairs permanent

home. For the Racing Pigeon flyers, it may

be used as a widowhood nest box. You

get two plastic nest fronts that swing in as

needed, and we supply a door that slides

up and down, you may install the door on

whichever side you want. We ship the unit disassembled, but

it is easy and quick to put together. We install all the black nest

front holders, so you do not have to worry about where they go.

All the screws are supplied and we pre-drill the hole so that you

know where to place the screws. The first time I used one, I put

it together in less than 15 minutes. Completely sanded and you

may want to consider painting it before or after assembly. The

total unit is 30 ½” from left to right, 15 ½” front to back and 30 ½”

high. Each nest box unit is 14" left to right, 14" front to back and

14 ¼” high. We supply the plastic fronts. If you decide to hang

the unit on the wall, we suggest you put a screw in each interior

corner. We do not supply the hanging screws.

Double Hanging Breeder Cage

This is ideal for the fancier that lacks

floor space, or has a tough time

bending over to observe or feed and water

birds in a breeder unit. The Double Breeder Cage is big enough

to put one pair on each side, but you can remove the center divider

and allow the birds to see each other and get used to each

other before putting them together to mate. There are occasions

when you put two strange birds together and the cock will beat

up the hen because they are not a pair. By allowing the two birds

to get acquainted before getting together, you will just about remove

that possibility. You receive two double cage cups that will

hold feed. A wire floor and a slide out tray, below the wire floor,

to remove droppings. Each side has a spring loaded door to get

access to the birds. 46 ½” x 17 ½” Front to Back and 15 ¾” High.

#3423 Breeder/Sick Bay Unit $130.00

TIPS:

The best temperature in the nest box is 68 to 77 degrees. You

may want to buy a thermometer and hygrometer and place

them in nest boxes, one at a time.

I love these and used them in some of

my lofts. Made in Belgium, they come

with 5 adapters that you screw to your

nest box. You can lock a pair in, use it to

mate your birds or can also be used by

racing pigeon people flying the Widowhood

System. Fits a nest box no larger

inside of 30.7 Inch, and no higher than 13.4”. Fits our #143 Nest

Box. Instructions & diagram included. Available in white, blue,

Ultimate Nest Box -

This Ultimate Nest Box

has so many features. I

hope I don't forget to list them

all. It is all heavy duty, beige

plastic which can be cleaned

easily. The birds stand on a

grated floor and the droppings

fall through to a drawer which slides out for cleaning. Each

unit has a drop down door for the birds to enter and locks

the birds should you have the need. The Ultimate Nest Box

may be used as two separate nest boxes using the unique

triple track divider. You can have it open so one pair claims

both sides, you can slide a partition that allows the birds to

see each other (this is for racing homer fanciers who fly the

windowhood system), or the partition allows you to set up

the two sides so one pair can not see the other pair. Each

box has vent grills on the sides and the rear. The front allows

you to open each side for complete access. The Ultimate

Nest Box includes a stack and lock system and using

this system you can stack them one on top another and

also lock them together on the sides. You can lock them all

together and have a wall of nest boxes. Each Ultimate Nest

Box includes a set of rollers that allow you to roll a single

stack or the entire wall backward and forward for ease in

cleaning around the units. Won't rust like metal. Won't

rot like wood. Each individual Ultimate Nest Box is 16.14"

Deep x 23" Long x 17.13" High (exterior measurements).

front is undoubtedly the most

available on the market. It pivots on two aluminum rods

clean the nest boxes. These nest fronts can be cut to fit

most all nest boxes. The gate (door) can be cut on the left or

on the right side. Comes complete with aluminum rods, fittings,

screws and easy installation instructions. A little more

than some, but worth the price. Maximum size is 15" X 30"

Spanish Large Cage Drinker

There are cases where you may

need a large drinker for a cage.

Cases where you have to be away for a few days

or more, your cage is large and has multiple

birds and you need to offer a larger drinker, etc.

The unique design of the Spanish Large Cage

Drinker allows you to slip the base through the wires and

lock it in place. It has a bottom screw off lid should you want

to remove the drinker that still has water in it, this prevents

spillage. The bottle also slips off the base for easy filling as

well as being opaque which allows you to see the level of

water. The base that holds the water is a corrosive resistant

aluminum. Holds a bit over two quarts. Great for pigeons,

poultry and cage birds.

Nest Bowl Corner Shelf

I have been a pigeon fancier

for the better part of 70 years.

One of the problems I have always had

is the pigeons, for some reason, make

nest and lay the eggs on the floor. Now

there are plenty of nest boxes, so that

is not a problem, but for whatever reason, they nest on the

floor. They almost always make their nest in a corner, and

if there are perches above, the nest is always a mess because

of droppings from above. Now I usually do not have

perches near the corners, so that, in most cases solves the

problem of the droppings falling on the corner nests, but

the corner nesting are still a problem, as the pair have problems

defending the nesting area from aggressive cock birds.

The newly designed Corner Nest Bowl Shelf goes a long

way in protecting the eggs and young, much like a regular

nest box, it is much easier to defend from other cock birds.

The design allows you to face it in two directions, the open

front and doweled side allows for a lot of air flow. Since it

need not be screwed to a wall, it is much easier to clean the

area, move it, clean the area and put it right back. The unit is

large enough to use any size nest bowl, including the larger

#3500 Lifetime Nest Bowl. The unit is 12” X 12” X 12” high.

Sturdy all wood construction will last for many years. There

is no need to paint it, but it will last longer if painted and the

painted wood resists moisture and stains.

NEST BOWLS

Clay Nest Bowls

The clay type nest bowls have been used for

hundreds of years and are very popular all over

the world. The weight of the clay bowls prevents

them from moving around. This is the Bowl of choice

for my own pigeons, after the breeding season I soak them

in water with bleach in it for 24 hours and when I remove

them they are quite clean and just need wiped and put away

for next breeding season. Four vent holes in the bottom.

Plastic Weave Nest Bowls

Most nest bowls have

vent holes in the bottom

of the bowl in order

to vent the bottom

to help keep it dry. The

Weave Bowl has more ventilation than any bowl we offer. A

nest pad must be used with the Weave Bowl. The Weave

Bowl is offered in two sizes. The Standard Weave Bowl is 9”

wide and 3” high and meant for most all breeds, with the exception

of very large breeds such as Runts, House Pigeons,

etc. The small is meant for the many small breeds such as

Rollers, Tipplers, etc. The Small Weave Bowl measures 7”

wide and 2” high.

Paper Pulp Nest Bowls

These bowls are made from nothing but

paper and water. We had the opportunity

to make them white, but this meant using

chemicals, and we did not want that,

so the bowls are the natural color of gray. The base of these

bowls is a bit over 10”, the top diameter is a bit over 7 ½” and

they are 2 ½” high, just like the originals. The texture is a little

rough, the reason for this to allow the babies to get a good grip

when they try to stand up, which will reduce just about any possibility

of splayed legs. Foy’s Paper/Pulp Sanitary Nest Bowls are

meant to be disposable after the young are raised and out of the

nest. Ideal for most small to medium breeds, but not the large

breeds such as Modenas and Kings.

Lifetime Heavy Nest Bowls

The clay nest bowl has always been a great

seller, because the fancier wanted a nest

bowl that was heavy enough to prevent the

pair or young from pushing it around. The big disadvantage of

the clay bowl was that it broke very easily. The Heavy Nest Bowl

solves both of the issues with a clay nest bowl, it is virtually

impossible to break and is very heavy to prevent the bowl from

moving. It is also very easy to clean It is available in the standard

9" in diameter or the 10 ½” large breed size. Heavy duty plastic.

Never buy another nest bowl!

Lifetime Heated Nest Bowl

Breeding season can be quite difficult

in cold climates and it is not unusual

to lose a few young, in the nest, because

of the cold. Designed especially for Foy's, the Heated

Nest Bowl may be the answer to breeding in cold climates. Yes,

these bowls are expensive, but at what price would you put on

the ability to raise young from a special pair or two, much earlier

than normal. Designed around our Heavy Nest Bowl, the Heated

Nest Bowl will not move around and keeps the young warm.

The heat is regulated so that it does not get too warm. Available

in two sizes. Maximum temperatures are 75-86 degrees.

Nest Bowls for Cage Birds

We had been looking for these for a

couple of years, and the only supplier we

could find was, in our opinion, an inferior product

that was overpriced. We found these nest

bowls and nest pads that are high quality and reasonably priced.

The bowls come in 3 sizes and clip on to wire or they could also

be attached to a wall. Very sturdy construction and they will last

a very long time. They are beige in color. The small one is 4" outside

diameter X 1 ½” high, the medium is 4 ½” X 1 ¾” high and

the large is 5 ¼” X 2 ¼” high. Please note that we also have the

nest liners and liner clips to fit these cage bird nests bowls.

Bowl Pads

Coconut Nest Pads are

Pigeon Nesting Eggs

There are times when you want to start the laying process by

offering false eggs as a suggestion or promotion of the idea of

laying. There are also times you don't want your birds to raise any

more young, so you simply replace their eggs with false eggs and

they will set them. The plastic pigeon eggs are full of a powder to

give them a more realistic weight.

Tobacco Stems

Build their nest or let them build their own with these

insect killing stems. Box measures approximately

15"x14"x8". The stems are imported and are the highest quality

available. Long and comparatively thin. Many fanciers soak

the stems they are going to use, in water for an hour or so. After

soaking to soften the stems, form them into a circle that fits in to

their next bowl. They should cover the bottom and part way up

the side. Many pigeons are poor nest builders and you sometimes

have to help.

Felt Nest Pads for Pigeons

Has always been the most popular

nest pad Foy's offers. Soft felt that

helps retain the body heat of the parents offer

to the eggs and young. The felt creates an easy grip for the

feed of the fast growing babies. The grip is very important

as the babies grow very fast and as they try to stand, a grip

is important, because if it is a slippery surface under them,

their legs will slide out from under them and in a matter of 24

hours. It is very difficult to try to push the legs back under

the babies, usually not possible. We offer the felt pads in

three sizes to best fit the breeds you have.

All plastic construction means easy cleaning because stains

do not sink in like a wood perch. The P.M. Perch is really

two perches in one. Remove the two protection sides and

you have a block perch similar to our #1040 with the sides

slipped back on and you have a standard V perch. We have

pictured it both ways. Screw the U clip to the wall and slip

on the perch. There may be times where you have fewer

birds and need fewer perches so it makes good sense to

remove the unused perches. All you have to do is slip up the

perch and leave the bracket. The perch projects out from

the wall 4 ½” and is 11 ¼” from left to right.

Show Cage Platform Perch

A number of our products come from discussions with customers,

making custom products for customers or in the

case of this particular product, we saw it being used at a

show and thought it an excellent idea and asked the fancier

who created it, if we could add it to our product line. I am

sorry to say I cannot remember his name, but he not only

gave us permission to offer it, he gave us a sample to use.

Almost all of the cages at a show are the same size and are

usually a four compartment show cage, so this is what the

unit is made for. Our workshop makes these and should you

want one made in some other size, call Foy’s for the custom

cost. This Show Cage Platform Perch is 15 ½” long X 1¾"

front to back and ¾” thick. It has a slot that holds a wire

hook that sits in the slot. The hooks come out when you

want to hook the unit inside the show cage. The most important

benefit to the Platform Perch is that during a show the

bird can hop up on the perch and stay clean for the judging.

Most shows no longer allow shavings so the cage floors do

get nasty. Easy to install and no tools needed. We suggest

painting the perch to keep it looking nice.

I believe we offer the largest selection of perches and there is a reason for this. Choosing the correct perch is an individual decision as there are different

situations for each loft. Some choices will depend on space available, breed of pigeon, special needs and what the perch is made of. I do not believe it is a

must to protect the bird below as droppings do not stick to a healthy bird. The only time this may be a factor is when you have a pair that insists on having

a nest in the corner on the floor. Scraping the perches regularly is no big deal, but for someone like me, who has a lot of pigeons, I am always looking for

a perch that cuts down on scraping. I have used just about every design of perch and because I want to limit my perch scraping time, my two favorites

are the Space Saver Perch and the Block Perch. For Racing Homers and Rollers, and they fill my needs. We suggest all perches be spaced 11"-12” from

side to side and 11"-12” from above and below, with the exception of some very small of very large breeds. If you have a special size or design need,

please contact us for a quote.

perch clip to the end of the wood,

using the pre drilled 4 holes and the

four screws supplied with the perch.

Slip the perch into the wall clip and

you have a V perch that is secure and will not move. The perch

may also used as a block perch, similar to our #1040 Block

Perch. The wood that the pigeons roost on is a solid piece of

hard wood and will not split or crack over time. The two sturdy

plastic pieces that form the V, are a top quality plastic, meant

to stand up to years of use and unaffected by extreme weather.

The Perch measure 9 ½” between the V and projects out 4 ½”.

Easy to clean and protects the birds perched below.

Foy's Heavy Duty Wood Perch

This perch, as with most of our

wood products, is made in our

wood shop. The idea for the perch came

from John Raber, our master carpenter. No

plywood in the construction, it is all yellow

pine, and meant for years and years of service.

You may want to consider painting them with a good gloss

paint, which will make it even easier to keep clean. Absolutely no

knots and sanded for a fine finish. The wood for the sides is 3/8”

thick, 2 or 3 times thicker than most other V perches. The wood

where the bird perches is 2” wide and 5 ½” front to back, lots of

room for most all breeds. The back brace and mounting bracket

is of the same thickness as the sides and includes two pre-drilled

mounting holes. Made in Foy’s own wood shop. CUSTOM

CEREMONIAL PRODUCTS

Deluxe Heart

Basket

Made in America and

one of the up-most quality. John

Raber, our finish carpenter, designed

this himself and having never

built one, he looked on it as a real

challenge. The handles are large to

give balance when carrying. The

weave is a full ¾” high and allows

for lots of ventilation. To reduce the

possibility of malfunctioning hardware, we have eliminated any

type of locking device. Place the two handles in the up position

and use a zip tie to lock them. Curious kids or adults will be unable

to "sneak a peak" and accidentally release the birds. The

small Deluxe Heart Basket measures 13" x 10" x 8 ½” high. The

large Deluxe Heart Basket measures 18" x 14 ½” x 10" high. We

offer this beautiful addition to your business in a natural color, but

you only need a can of spray paint to paint it the color of your

choice.

Remote Release

Basket

I have viewed videos

and attended ceremonies

where a remote release basket

was used. It was my opinion

that the remote release was a

good idea, but the ones I observed

left room both in appearance

and in function. I spoke

to a good friend who is a genius when it comes to creating a

product from an idea. Carl is also the designer and creator of

our "Event Release Basket" as well as our Ceremonial Release

Basket, both on pages 91 & 92. Well you get the idea if you want

something special, well made and very functional, I call Carl. The

Remote Release Basket is battery operated and features a fully

painted sturdy wood frame that will give you years of service.

The unit has a top loading door. Push the button while you're

positioned many feet away, and away the birds go. The 1" spring

of the hard wood dowels allows the curious guests to observe

the birds, but ensures their safety by not allowing their heads to

push through. The floor includes a removable raised wired floor

grate that keeps the birds clean. Another unique feature is the

double locking system. When the lock is in the rear position, the

top loading door and the front release door are securely locked

and will not open even if it is tipped over. The receiver and trigger

mechanism are in a module which has an on and off switch to

conserve battery strength. We offer the Remote Release Basket

in 18 x 16 x 10" high for 10 birds and 36 x 16 x 10" high for

20 birds. Both baskets are available in white or black and are

shipped complete and also include two remote key chain remote

transmitters. Works up to 100 feet.

Basket

Another excellent

product from our Amish

wood shop. This is a

heart shaped basket for

weddings or ceremonies

in white and funerals in black. The small which is 13" x 10"

x 8 ½” high is meant for 1-2 birds and the large which is 18"

x 14 ½” x 10" high is meant for 4-5 birds. Very light weight.

proud to own. All white with oak

trim. The sides are mesh for full ventilation. A drop down

door for release and an unusual rear drop down door to

feed and water the birds if they are going to be in the basket

for an extended time. The double floor includes a removable

raised wire floor to keep the birds clean. Available

in two handy sizes. The 15 bird size is 24 ½” X 14 ½”

X 10" H, the 20 bird size is 30 ½” X 16 ½” X 10" H. Choice

Event Release Basket

The white dove (white racing

homers) release business continues to grow

and it may be the opportunity for you to earn

the extra income you are looking for. The

Funeral Release Basket is designed to be

used at a funeral and in many cases, the box

is left with the funeral director who releases the birds at the

cemetery. The funeral director is instructed how to use the

unit, it takes 2-3 minutes to learn. This custom made box

features a divided bottom section which holds three birds

and are released first. The top section holds one bird which

is released a few moments after the first three. The box is

designed to keep the birds quiet, which is very important

at a funeral. The birds are placed in the box from the rear,

facing forward in preparation for release. The two knobs at

the top are pulled one at a time to release the birds in proper

sequence. Traditional black, gray wire mesh and hardwood

trim. Approximate size is 17" x 17" x 13" high. The release

of the first two birds signifies the trinity and when released,

they naturally circle. The last single bird released represents

the deceased, which on release, joins the first three and after

circling, they will fly away. Another use would be using at

weddings or wedding receptions. Release two birds representing

the couple and then the third bird which represents

love. Made in one of our contractors wood shop, top quality

throughout.

BOOKS

"Lofts of North America"

This book is the result of over 5 years of work, and I truly believe it is the

most anticipated book in many years. As the owner of a major pigeon

supply company, we receive inquiries on a regular basis, asking for information

about building a loft. This book is meant to give you ideas, not

only on what a loft looks like, but it is also full of interior pictures of a loft

to give examples of nest boxes, perches, flooring, breeder cages, ventilation,

windows, doors, trapping, aviaries, feeders, drinkers, and so much

more. We included over 100 lofts from Hawaii, Alaska, Canada, North-

South-West and Eastern United States. I did not want just Taj Mahal type

lofts that cost a mint, (but there are some in the loft), I wanted the Average

Joe loft, Racing Homer lofts, Fantail lofts, Runts, Rollers, Pouters,

Dovecoats, Parlor Tumblers and so much more. We have included step

by step pictures on building a loft and a page by page diagram with bill of

materials to build a 4x8 loft. The book is 99% in color and much of the

description text is written by the fancier who built the loft. We have amateur

builders and professional builders. Even if you do not plan on building

a loft, Lofts of North America will give you a ton of ideas about improving

the loft you have. If you would like an autographed copy, please let

us know. A Great Gift. I apologize for the high cost, but printing a book

in color and what a printer considers a low number, it is very expensive to

print. Written by Jerry Gagne. Author's signature available upon request.

"White Pigeons:

The Color of Money"

This booklet may be one of your best investments ever. Over the last

decade, the dove release business has exploded in a very positive way.

People who just a short time ago had no idea that people kept pigeons,

let alone made a good part time or full time income from the release of

white doves at funerals, weddings, celebrations and recently the release

at gender revelation parties. In America and Canada so many people are

looking for ways to add extra income or in a lot of cases, a full time income.

It really is a great opportunity, and in comparison to other businesses,

this one is relatively inexpensive to start. Many people already

have an empty shed, utility building, barn or old chicken coop, and a little

work will turn it in to a very usable loft. This is the first and, to my knowledge,

the only book written about this phenomena that is sweeping the

country. The dove used in the white dove release business are actually

white racing pigeons. The racing homer is born with an instinct to rerun

home after being released, all it takes is a bit of training to hone that instinct.

This multi million business is still considered new and there is lots

of opportunities in every state.

White Pigeons, The Color of Money is a must for anyone that is giving

any thought to starting their own business. If you have pigeons now or in

the past, you should purchase this book. If you have never had pigeons,

you must consider ordering this book. The book will help you prevent

costly errors and put you on the right path immediately. The author, who

is a 70 year pigeon fancier and also is in the bird release business, so

the book is based not on theory, but on facts and experience. Chapters

include: Where Do I Start?, building or converting a building to a

loft, Interior loft preparation, Feeders, drinkers, perches, and so much

more. Correct feed, health management, breeding, training, advertising,

equipment, etc. soft cove with 46 pages. Pictures, most in full color,

and priced quite reasonable. Author's signature available upon request.

Rich’s End

Release Basket

Rich Dworek, a

nationally known pigeon flyer

designed this basket to solve a

problem he has always struggled

with. Rich raises and trains quite

a few birds and it was a real chore

to catch every bird in the morning. This solved his problem!

Rich trains the young birds from the very beginning to enter

the baskets themselves by putting their daily feed ration in

one of these baskets. The "Rich" basket has a sliding door

on each end and once the birds know that their feed is in

the basket, all he does is line the baskets up, end to end.

When one basket is full of birds, he drops the doors on the

full one, installs a door on the next basket and when it is full,

drops the end door. Rich says he can line up as many as six

at a time. These quality baskets have a flip top door should

you want to load birds or remove one from the top. Great

ventilation due to the doweled top and the mesh material on

the sides. 31 ½” X 16 ¾” X 9 ¼”.

Levi's Basket

I attended the

National Poultry

Show in Columbus, Ohio and

noticed a basket that many exhibitors

were using. I brought

one of them home and had

John, our Amish craftsman, made one with what we feel are

a few small improvements. This basket is ideal for poultry,

but it is also ideal for some of the larger, tall breeds of pigeons.

Available in 4, 5, or 6 bird baskets. Each compartment

is 5" wide x 12 ¾” x 11 ½” high. Completely sanded

to eliminate sharp edges and each compartment has 3/8"

dowels in the front, 5 ½” high. Each compartment has a

sliding door and all may be locked using the ¼” dowel. All

3 sizes are 13" high and 14 ¾” front to back. The 4 bird is

26" long, the 5 bird is 32" long and the 6 bird is 38" long.

A beautiful, Amish made basket in natural wood. You may

want to stain one and cover with Polyurethane for a gorgeous

Deluxe 5 Large Bird Basket

The word DELUXE is not used much in this catalog, but I

could not come up with any description that did not include

the word deluxe. As with most all of our wood products,

this is made in the FOY’S WOOD SHOP. Our good friend

John Raber and his family are Amish and work together as

a family to create the best of products. With features such

as sanding the finished wood, knot free, heavy duty dowels

and plastic covered wire floor, you will be proud to own this

special basket and without a doubt, people will ask where

you got it. The original design was from a customer’s request

and created by John Raber. The Deluxe Basket is 32” long,

14 ¾” front to back and the total height is 15 ¼”. Inside measurements

are 12 7/8” front to back, 11 ¼” high and 6” wide.

The five sliding doors are locked in place by a ¼ sanded

wood dowel, this allows you to slide the doors open one at

a time. The front of the Deluxe Basket includes two 3/8 inch

dowels to allow maximum air ventilation. Inside, the birds are

standing on a wire floor of ½” x 1” plastic coated wire. The

bottom of the basket contains a sliding drawer to remove

accumulated droppings. . No handle is needed, as the ends

are recessed to allow you carry it with ease. Made in Foy’s

Workshop. Custom sizes available at additional cost.

Jaiden's Premium

Basket

Factory precise and a

real quality basket. Quality features

include a bumper on the

bottom and at the corners. These

bumpers will not scratch a surface

and they keep the basket up

from the floor. Corner protectors

which add to the overall attractiveness

of the basket, as well as

added strength. The corner protectors are on the top corners

as well as the bottom corners. Large vent holes on three sides

that offer the pigeons lots of air circulation. The release door in

the front is hinged and includes a vent hole that also serves as a

finger hole which may be used to drop the door down , if needed.

The heavy duty carrying handle folds down. Top dowels are

3/8”, larger than most other wood baskets. To place pigeons

to the basket, the door on the top opens easily due to the steel

hinge and folds across the center of the basket, unlike all other

baskets that swing up length ways. The door is locked in place

when closed, using an oversized plastic turn button. The center

support of the basket is 1 ¾” wide for added strength, as all the

weight with the pigeons in the basket, takes the brunt of this

weight and it needs the extra width. The wood basket is fine as

it is, but we suggest you paint it to protect the wood and added

beauty. Varnishing the basket makes it a real gem.

P.M. Heavy Duty Aluminum Baskets

The P.M. Baskets are exclusive at Foy’s and you’ll find no

better. Each basket has dividers that keep each bird in an

individual compartment. The aluminum used to construct these

baskets, is much heavier than others on the market, this extra

strength reduces the possibility of dents. It is very important that

each bird be offered maximum ventilation, each compartment

has two round holes in the front, and the design below each

circle and also in the rear of each compartment serve as not only

FINAL CLOSEOUTS

Clearify Liquid

Prevention of RESPIRATORY problems is so

very important, and yet no fancier wants to

overuse antibiotics. Clearify, an ALL-NATURAL product,

was introduced in 2015,and has become one of

the bestselling pigeon respiratory treatments in all of

Europe. If you race or fly your pigeons, a respiratory issue will

reduce their ability to compete, as their breathing is affected. If

your pigeons are not flying as long as they should, or upon landing,

they are breathing with the mouth open, you may have

a respiratory issue that needs your attention. Clearify is meant to

PREVENT respiratory problems, and it is All NATURAL. Clearify

produces no side effects and is more potent than Tylan. Use

for three days every week starting a couple of weeks before the

race season or competitive flying, and then twice a week during

the flying season. For pigeons such as Racing Homers, Rollers

and Tipplers. The 250 ml bottle will make a bit over 6 gallons of

drinking water, and is safe in all weather conditions, including

extremely hot days. Tests in Europe gave the pigeons 100%

relief from respiratory diseases.

Plastic

Feeder

A very well made feeder,

with the added benefit of

reducing waste. The feeding

spaces are a bit closer together and will reduce waste

placement of legs to keep it a bit off the floor. A top quality

feeder that will last for years and years. Also great for grit

because the heavy duty plastic will not react to the salt in

grit like a metal feeder might.

Poultry Drench

Specifically formulated for all poultry. Our

approach is to promote overall health to

boost the immune system FAST! Nutri-Drench

moves to the blood stream, eliminating the hours

needed for digestion. Nutri-Drench can be measured

in the blood stream in minutes with 99%

utilization. Nutri-Drench increases the appetite, improves

hatchability of eggs, you will get stronger new born, withstand

extreme weather, reduce the strain of shipping birds,

reduce the diarrhea caused by heat stress, and reduce vitamin

deficiencies. Balanced nutrition is important to growth,

reproduction and resistance to disease. Stress can be

caused by a number of factors, however poultry hide problems

very well until stress becomes critical. In all cases,

FAST replacement nutrition is important or poultry can go

into shock and die. Even disease is difficult to diagnose.

When poultry begins to show obvious signs of illness, they

are already seriously ill. Balanced, replacement nutrition

should be used at the same time as antibiotics are being

used. Nutri-Drench contains only Natural Nutritional Ingredients.

Nutri-Drench may be used in proportions. Backed

by 20 years of research, field trials.

Feeding Trays

I think this is a really great idea for

the fancier who enjoys spending

time in the loft, feeding the birds. This is a

method the Europeans have enjoyed for years. Place the

tray on the floor and place feed in it. The birds will flock

to the floor and eat from the tray, keeping the floor clean.

They will push and shove trying to get to the choice seeds,

and that's part of the fun. When you have decided they

have had enough, remove the tray. This allows you to

control the feed and the birds become quite tame. Ring

DRINKERS

Spanish Style Cage Drinker

Extremely well made and very

well designed. The units come in

two sections and come apart for cleaning

and filling. Heavy, commercial grade

plastic, will last a lifetime with minimum

care. The drinking ports protrude out and offer easy access

for the birds and also help prevent debris and droppings

from fowling the water. Just about impossible, because of

the design, for birds to roost on top of the drinker. Mainly

used in breeding, isolation or sick bay. I use them and am

quite pleased with them.

#3415 Spanish Style Drinker 1/2 Gallon / 2 L $8.00

#3416 Spanish Style Drinker 2/3 Gallon / 2.5 L 11.00

Drinker / Feeder Shelf

Many people comment that they

can not keep the drinking water

clean. I use these myself and they really

work well. As I mentioned in one of

my TIPS, I suggested you move the water drinkers around

so that you do not have wet spots if it were always in the

same spot. This shelf solves the problem. I also like them,

because it is one less thing I have to move when cleaning

the floor. This handy, Amish made shelf will come close

to keeping the water sparkling clean. Attach it to the wall

and if you are not using it, it will fold down against the wall.

Wood frame with a galvanized wire base. Sit your water on

one and feeder on the other. Available in two sizes. The

smaller one has a platform 15 ¾” x 15 ¾” and the larger

one is meant to hold a drinker and possibly a grit feeder or

pick pots. Measures 31 ½” L x 15 ¾”. What a great idea!

#1627 Drinker / Feeder Shelf 15 ¾” x 15 ¾” $34.00

#1628 Drinker / Feeder Shelf 31 ½” x 15 ¾” 45.00

Mini Drinker

A really handy small drinker with the added

benefit of an upper tank that is clear.

This clear tank allows you to know exactly how

much liquid is left with out having to handle it.

Idea for use in individual cages, breeding boxes,

or "sick bay". Finger hole in the top allows you to

carry with ease. Twist to lock together. The small

is 8" high x 4" wide. The medium is 10" high x 5" wide and

the large is 11" high x 5 ½” wide.

Spanish Large Drinker with Stand

The drinker holds a bit over 3.3

quarts. The three liter (101 ounces) is

meant for cages with a number of pigeons

or a large chicken or two. The Large Cage Drinker

goes inside the cage and stands on its own, but

also has a metal attachment with clip to clip on

the cage wire to hold in place. The drinker is also

handy if you need to leave for a few days and you need a

larger amount of water available to the birds in a cage.

with Stand

#3378 Spanish Large Cage Drinker 3 quarts

Spanish Large Cage Drinker

There are cases where you may

need a large drinker for a cage.

Cases where you have to be away for a few days

or more, your cage is large and has multiple

birds and you need to offer a larger drinker, etc.

The unique design of the Spanish Large Cage

Drinker allows you to slip the base through the wires and

lock it in place. It has a bottom screw off lid should you want

to remove the drinker that still has water in it, this prevents

spillage. The bottle also slips off the base for easy filling as

well as being opaque which allows you to see the level of

water. The base that holds the water is a corrosive resistant

aluminum. Holds a bit over two quarts. Great for pigeons,

poultry and cage birds.

#3390 Spanish Large Cage Drinker $8.00

#3391 Spanish Large Cage Drinker 2 pack 12.00

Spanish Cage Drinkers

It is always nice to be able to add

feed and water to birds in a breeding

cage or birds in quarantine for whatever reason,

without actually opening the cage door. It is always

a possibility that when you are opening the door to

feed and water the birds, they will escape. This cage

drinker eliminates that possibility because it is on the

outside of the cage. The base of the drinker slips thru

the cage wire and with a twist, it is locked in place. The top slips

off the base, so when you want to fill it with water, you need not

unscrew it, which would be difficult. The drinker is all plastic and

you can see the level of the water in a glance. A problem at many

shows is the fact that the birds in their cages often spill the water

and make a mess. Take one of these to a show, one for each

bird, and the water will not be spilled and it is almost impossible

to foul the water. As I have stressed many times in this catalog,

birds at a show are stressed by having to drink water that they

are not familiar with and this may cause stress. Bring your own

water and if you want to add something like our Show Water, it

will help prevent stress even more. Great for pigeons, cage birds

and chickens.

P.M. Drinker

quick twist and lock in place after filling.

Plastic Crock For Feed Or Water

Crocks are easy to clean

and have no reaction to

hard water, medications, or vitamins,

etc. I have used the large crock myself

for many years. I like them because

they hold exactly one gallon which means when I add something

to the water, it is easy because I don't have to measure

out a gallon. I do not use a heater in the winter. I go out in

the morning, pick up the frozen one and hit it against a block

and the ice pops out. I replace it with the one I had washed

the day before. The small is 8" x 2 ½” deep and the large is

11 ½” x 3 ½” deep.

CAGE BIRD

False Eggs

False eggs are used for a

number of purposes. Pigeon

fanciers use them when they want to stop raising

youngsters. They remove the real eggs and replace them

with the false pigeon eggs. Pigeons do not know the difference

and will sit on these false eggs until past the normal hatching

date. Pigeon fanciers also will place under the pigeon when the

hen stays in the nest bowl as though they have eggs but in fact

they have not laid. It is thought that if you put false eggs under

the pair, they will sit on them until the hatching time and this

may start the regular cycle of laying eggs. Cage bird fanciers

use them for the same reasons. Some fanciers like the wood

and others prefer the plastic, where possible, we offer both. The

cage bird eggs are all available in plastic only.

sizes and clip on to wire or they could also be attached to a wall.

Very sturdy construction and they will last a very long time. They

are beige in color. The small one is 4" outside diameter X 1 ½”

Breeder Units

Reintroduced to the pigeon fanciers after not

being able to get them for the past few years.

These units have so many features, you’ll wonder how you

got along without them. The four level is separated in the

middle, by a small section where the feed and water containers

are located. The feed and drink containers are included.

A separate spring loaded door gives you access

to the feeder and drinker, without disturbing the pigeons.

Each level has individual slide out trays. The floors of the

units are plastic coated wire that allows the droppings to fall

thru to the removable tray below. A really nice feature is that

each complete unit has casters on each of the four legs,

this allows the unit to be moved very easily. The complete

unit is constructed with long lasting plastic coated wire, this

wire is spaced close enough to prevent the possibility of a

pigeon sticking a head or wing thru the wire and causing

injury. The four level may serve you as a mating cage, put

the hen on one side and the cock on the other. The cock is

prevented from possibly attacking a hen that is not its mate,

leave in the unit for a week or so and the cock bird will then

be placed with the hen. Another popular use is a breeding

cage. Each unit is 35 ¾” X 32 ¾” X 16 ½” high, this allows

plenty of room for the pair to breed in, just add a nest bowl.

Another popular use is a sick bay unit. Every vet or experienced

breeder will suggest that as soon as you notice a sick

bird, remove it from contact with the others thus reducing

the spread of the sickness to the other birds. The units are

shipped disassembled, and are very easy to put together.

The two level unit is shipped in one box and the four level

unit is shipped in two boxes. The units are very well built but

very heavy. The two level unit is 43” tall and the four level unit

is 67” tall. A bit pricey but will last years and years. Please

note that the two level unit is two large compartments not

divided.

Nest Box Four Hole with

Plastic Nest Front

A complete unit that may be set on

the floor of the loft , hung on the wall

or stacked one on top of the other to

create an eight nest unit. The unit may

be used for mating individual pairs, and

is the pairs permanent home. For the

Racing Pigeon flyers, it may be used as a widowhood nest

box. You get two plastic nest fronts that swing in as needed,

and we supply a door that slides up and down, you

may install the door on whichever side you want. We ship

the unit disassembled, but it is easy and quick to put together.

We install all the black nest front holders, so you do

not have to worry about where they go. All the screws are

supplied and we pre-drill the hole so that you know where

to place the screws. The first time I used one, I put it together

in less than 15 minutes. Completely sanded and you

may want to consider painting it before or after assembly.

The total unit is 30 ½” from left to right, 15 ½” front to back

and 30 ½” high. Each nest box unit is 14" left to right, 14"

front to back and 14 ¼” high. We supply the plastic fronts.

If you decide to hang the unit on the wall, we suggest you

put a screw in each interior corner. We do not supply the

hanging screws.

tough time bending over to observe or

feed and water birds in a breeder unit.

The Double Breeder Cage is big enough to put one pair

on each side, but you can remove the center divider and

allow the birds to see each other and get used to each

other before putting them together to mate. There are occasions

when you put two strange birds together and the

cock will beat up the hen because they are not a pair. By

allowing the two birds to get acquainted before getting together,

you will just about remove that possibility. You receive

two double cage cups that will hold feed. A wire floor

and a slide out tray, below the wire floor, to remove droppings.

Each side has a spring loaded door to get access

to the birds. 46 ½” x 17 ½” Front to Back and 15 ¾” High.

Simpson's Heater Stand

This Heater/Feeder Stand

was noticed while visiting the

lofts of a friend, Ron Simpson. Ron came

up with this idea and with his permission,

we are making this available to our customers.

Made in our own woodworking

shop, owned and operated by John Raber.

The unit is 20 5/8 in. high and 15 5/8 in. from front to

back. We have made the top so that it flips up, should you

have a drinker that is quite tall. Without flipping the top up,

you have 11½ in. of height to place your heater or drinker.

This unit was designed to keep your water from freezing,

but it most certainly can be used year round, as it goes a

long ways in keeping the drinking water clean. There are two

holes in the back of the unit, on down near where it meets

the floor and the other higher, just above where you would

place your drinker. These holes are to slip your extension

cord thru, in order to plug in your heater. This stand will accommodate

just about any heater, including our #294 Can

Heater and Heavy Duty Heaters #3461 thru #3464. The

Can Heater goes under the stand, tilt back and place the

Can Heater in position. The stand also has four small holes

that align the Heavy Duty Heaters and this prevents the

Heavy Duty Heaters from moving. This is a great unit, made

mostly of wood, and as all of the wood products, the wood

is sanded to a very smooth surface. Foy's suggest you paint

the unit which will give an even longer life, in fact will last

you a life time when painted and years and years even if you

do not paint it. No frozen water and water that stays much

cleaner. Made in Foy's Own Workshop.

#157 Simpson's Heater Drinker Stand $59.00

Thermostatic Heater

With the cost of electricity so high,

you should consider this money

saver which operates only when you need it.

Designed for the metal double wall drinkers

including our hood drinkers. Also may be used with our

P.M. Drinkers. Automatically turns itself on when temperature

drops below 38˚ and protects in temperatures as low as

10˚F. Includes a grounded plug and a 8' cord. 16" wide x

4" high. 125 watts of power.

#296 Thermostatic Heater $62.00

Can Heater

Use under your metal

drinker to prevent freezing.

9" in diameter x 5 ¾” high. This item will

require your putting it under a platform as it may be too high

for most breeds to drink from. Make your own platform, or

place a brick or 2x4 next to it for pigeons to stand on while

they drink. This heater uses 40 watt light bulbs. Do not use

with plastic drinkers.

#294 Can Heater $35.00

Metal Drinker

Platform

This sturdy galvanized

platform serves 2 purposes. It

serves as a platform for you to place your heater under and

it also helps keep your water clean by keeping the fountain

almost 6" off the floor, thus allowing less debris to blow in.

The hole is off center, hence you would not be able to use

the twin duplex fountains. Measures 16" x 11 ½” x 5 ¾”. Use

with our #294 heater.

#291 Metal Drinker Platform $13.00

Heavy Duty Heater

Bullet

Flat

Our heavy duty plastic round heater that is great in cold climates.

It is a continuous heater that stays on all the time,

regardless of the outside temperature. Each unit has a small

red light that goes on when it is plugged in and in this way, if

for some reason your unit is not working or the power is off,

you know at a glance. They are 1 ¼” high and come with a 6'

cord and two prong plug. Good for just about any drinker, from

a gallon to 2.5 gallons. Should you like to control the heat,

we would suggest a Thermo Cube-Cold Weather double plug.

The #2188 goes on when the temperature drops to 20 degrees

and shuts off when the temperature goes to 30 degrees and

above. The maximum temperature that the Heavy Duty Heaters

will reach is between 75 degrees and 86 degrees. The

molded projection of the Bullet Heater is 3” in diameter and 1

¼” high.

#3461 Heavy Duty Plastic Flat Heater 7 ½” $34.00

#3462 Heavy Duty Plastic Flat Heater 9 ½” 40.00

#3464 Heavy Duty Plastic Flat Heater 11 ¾” 46.00

#3463 Heavy Duty Plastic Bullet Heater 7 ½” 34.00

Thermo Cube-Cold Weather

Thermo Cube thermostatically controls

your electrical outlets. There is

no installation required. Just plug it

in. Thermo Cube is a unique and patented

electrical device. They plug into

a standard 15 amp electrical outlet which turns the power on

automatically according to outside temperature. We offer two

models each with a different temperature range. Each Thermo

Cube has two receptacles for use with more than one electrical

device rated 15 amps. Runs your unit only when necessary.

#2188 turns on at 20˚ and turns off at 30˚. #2190 turns on at 35˚

and turns off at 45˚.

#2188 Thermo Cube - Cold Weather 20˚ to 30˚ $18.00

#2190 Thermo Cube - Cold Weather 35˚ to 45˚ 18.00

Replacement Bulb Base

Over the years we have had request

for the bulb base for the

#294 Electric Drinker Heater.

#292 Replacement Bulb Base $8.00

Heated Poultry Drinker

This all season drinker is unique

in design and solves the problem

of frozen drinkers in the winter. This is a

thermo statically controlled drinker that keeps

water from freezing in sub-zero temperatures.

The base itself has a built in electrical connection.

Simply plug in your extension cord and

your ready to go. Keeps water from freezing

in sub-zero temperatures when winter is over. Just unplug and

use the drinker like any other. To fill, you flip upside down and

it will stand alone. Remove the rubber plug and fill. Includes

an easy grip carrying handle. The base is 12 ¾” in diameter

and the whole unit is in the see through tank. We suggest it be

placed out of the wind. 3 gallons. 100 watts.

#2171 Heated Poultry Drinker $53.00

Large Wood Cafeteria

Feeder

We make these ourselves

with the busy pigeon fancier in mind. All quality, exterior

plywood construction. The top comes off for

easy filling of up to 50 lbs. of feed. Two sided access

with five 1 ¾” diameter holes for feeding 5 to 10 birds at the

same time. You’ll find that you waste very little feed as the birds

eat only when they are hungry and must eat what is in front of

them. Slanted inside to flow the feed to the holes. 13 5/8" wide x

12 ½” deep x 19" high. Comes with a wood cover for each side.

If the birds are wasting feed, I cover the holes and make them eat

scattered feed. Made in Foy's Own Workshop.

#151 Large Cafeteria Feeder $70.00

Wall-Mount Cafeteria Feeder

Holds 35-40 lbs. of feed and is great

if you are going away for a few days. Screw

it to the wall high up so that dirt and feathers

do not blow in. 13 5/8" wide, 21 ¾” high and

7 3/8" projection, not including landing perch.

Made in Foy's Own Workshop.

#141 Wall-Mounted

Cafeteria Feeder $64.00

Spanish Divided Drinker/Feeder

A convenient feeder

with many uses.

This is a heavy duty plastic

feeder/drinker that will last

a lifetime. The unit, with the

divider removed is a feeder

or drinker. With the divider

in place, it is a feeder that

you can fill with three different feeds or single seeds and/or grit.

The divider locks into place but is easy to remove, and has five

holes for the birds to eat or drink from.. Holds 2 Quarts of water.

The divider has 3 sections, two large ones and one smaller one,

the smaller one is for grit or single seeds. The lid locks in place.

12” high X 7 ½” wide.

#3394 Spanish Divided Drinker/Feeder $9.00

#3395 Spanish Divided Drinker/Feeder 2 for 14.00

Roll Bar Wood Feeder

Another quality feeder

with features you may be

looking for. The bar rolls when a bird

tries to perch on it. One side drops

down to fill, and magnets on both ends to keep it closed. The

small one will feed up to 16 birds, the larger one will feed 28

birds.

#1010 Roll Bar Wood Feeder 39 ½” $38.00

Wood Feeder with

Guard

I use these and really

like them. Wood based with flip top

plastic covered wire cover. Stays clean

longer and birds cannot perch on top.

Flip up to fill. I use #1073 for grit.

#1073 Feeder with Guard 9 ½” $7.00

#1070 Feeder with Guard 24" 12.00

#1074 Feeder with Guard 31 ½” 17.00

Galvanized Metal

Feeder with

Guard

Just about impossible for birds

to fowl or sit on. Easy to fill and

easy to keep clean, hose down, dry and disinfect.

#1061 Galvanized Metal Feeder with Guard

20" Long $19.00

Sanitary Wood

Feeder

All wood construction,

with ¼” hardwood dowels

on all four sides. Removable, easy

to clean flat top. All 6"wide by 7.5"

high. Made in Foy's Wood Shop.

#1001 Sanitary Wood Feeder 12" long $23.00

#1002 Sanitary Wood Feeder 24" long 35.00

#1003 Sanitary Wood Feeder 36" long 45.00

#1004 Sanitary Wood Feeder 48" long 59.00

Pick Pot

Feeder

Many fanciers

would like to reuse the empty pick

pots. This feeder will hold 3 pick

pots. Fill them with grit, salt, Vitamineral,

grains or any item you want your

birds to have access to. All wood

construction with access all around. Shipped without pick

pots. Measures 14 1/8" long x 7 5/8" high x 6 ¼” wide. Made

in our workshop, custom sizes available.

#153 Pick Pot Feeder $22.00

P.M. Antibacterial Feeder

Factory made and completely sanded for a smooth surface.

What makes this feeder unique is the plastic tray insert.

The plastic insert is stain resistant and removable for easy

washing. The grit, because of the salts and minerals, has a

tendency to dry out the wood prematurely. The plastic liner

protects the wood. Another unique feature of this feeder is

that they are treated with an antibacterial agent, which helps

reduce the possibility of a bacterial disease. The bottom

includes small feet that keep it a bit off the floor to alter air

flow. Dampness tends to collect under feeders and drinkers,

and dampness is one of the worst things one can have in a

loft. The dowels are 3/8" hardwood and spaced to allow each

bird easy access. I like the flat roof, which is hinged. It is so

easy and quick to clean. Many feeders with the gabled roofs,

have two surfaces to clean. We offer three sizes to fit most

needs, and each of the three are 7 ½” high and 7" wide. The

longer feeders may require extra postage due to their length.

#3562 European Wood Feeder 12” long $16.00

#3563 European Wood Feeder 40” long 39.00

Record keeping is very important, and yet many fanciers do very little. When you breed your birds, you should put a pair marker

band on each bird. I use a blue numbered snap-on for cocks and a pink numbered snap-on for the hens. Snap-ons are sold in

packs of 1-12. 13-24,25-36 and 37-48. The cock, for example, is banded with a blue #1 and his mate is banded with a pink #1.

When I mate up my birds, I mark each nest box with the corresponding number of the pair. Nest box #1 is occupied by pair #1. I

do this by placing each pair in a nest box until they are mated and have claimed their nest box. I record the nest box and pair on

breeding record cards, which I keep in the loft. Periodically, or at the end of the breeding season, I record cards to my loft register.

I keep a loft register for each year, sometimes I use more than one loft register book. It is important to write the year on the front of

each loft register book, as years go by, it is easier to find the book I want. If I need to fill out a pedigree blank, I will need to get the

information from the loft register books. Some people never sell birds, and do not think they need to keep records. I strongly suggest

you keep accurate records as possible. If you raise a really good bird, you would certainly want to know where it came from,

wouldn’t you? If you have a really good pair of breeders, and something happens to one of them, wouldn’t you want to know if you

have offspring of the pair so that you can mate the mother to a son or the father to a daughter. Keeping records takes very little time

but if you don’t do it, no amount of work will supply the information needed.

Three Ring Binder of

Loft Sheets

Stiff sheets, 5" x 8", fit into

our 3 ring binder. Blanks for breed type

it is a very high quality, polished plastic that will

last for years and years. The Belgium Gallipot is a crock pot and

will break if handled roughly or is dropped. These gallipots are

super in mating cages or isolation cages. Take them to a show

and place them in the cage with your bird. We suggest you attach

that much less feed is wasted. Available in two sizes.

TIP:

· A hen can be found dead before she lays an egg, and

without any previous signs of a problem.

· Some hens lay only one egg or do not ever lay one

· You will, on occasion have a rough shell egg, softshelled

egg or very odd shaped eggs, or very small

of unusually large eggs.

· The hen, at times is not able to pass her egg.

· On occasion a hen who just laid an egg may not

be limp or not be able to fly. This condition is rarely

permanent and will go away in a couple of days.

· If no mate is available, two cocks may mate or two

hens will mate. If the two cocks mate there will be no

eggs, two mated hens will product 4 infertile eggs.

· It is never a good idea to use antibiotics when very

young.

Spanish Cage Feeder

Heavy duty all plastic cups with molded hooks to attach

dampness. May be used for feed, grit or anything you wish

NPA BAND SIZE CHART | AU, IF AND NPA YEAR BANDS

NPA Bands - The National Pigeon Association is an organization all fancy pigeon breeders should consider joining. This is the only national fancy pigeon

organization and sponsors the National Pigeon Show every year. The NPA offers many benefits and supports our pigeon keeping future. See order information

chart for correct band size and shipping information. To contact the NPA call 404-922-4960. If you do not put the leg bands on your pigeons, you

are certainly not doing the hobby any good. These leg bands are placed on the baby birds when they are very young. When the baby grows, the band

will never come off. The leg band contains a serial number, year born, and the organization that issued the leg band. If you do not band your birds, you

can never show the bird, plus it makes the bird almost impossible to sell to another pigeon fancier. Everyone who buys or trades pigeons wants to

know how old the bird is and without a seamless leg band, there is no way to know how old your bird is. Here at Foy's we take calls almost every day

from someone who has found a bird and would like to know who it belongs to. We keep records on the band sales and if we sold the band, we direct the

caller to the breeder. If we did not sell the band, we can usually direct the caller to the organization that sold the band. Sadly, we get more calls than we

should from callers who found birds with no band and the caller is at a loss as to what to do. Bad publicity for this great hobby is something we always

want to discourage. When someone calls with a lost bird, it always impresses the caller when we can direct them to the breeder. Do your

part and help our hobby, band your birds with a seamless leg band.

TIPS:

Give youngsters a chance to build up some of their own natural

immunity: make sure that the medication is only given

when the pigeons really need it. Treat your youngsters only

when necessary.

Personalized

Seamless Bands

Used by fanciers to increase the

chances that a lost bird will be returned to

the breeder. The folks who do the WHITE

BIRD RELEASES use these frequently,

with the name of their business including

their phone number. Anyone that raises

flying varieties of pigeons should use these either as their only

leg band, or on the opposite foot of the regular leg band. If

you ever plan on showing your birds, you must have a regular

band on the bird, along with your personalized band. Check

out the NPA chart on the previous page to see which breeds

they will fit. They are put on the bird when it is still in the nest.

You may use 2 lines with 17 spaces per line. Line 3 is consecutive

numbers only. A space means a letter or empty space

between them. Your orders must be online, e-mailed, faxed

or on a piece of paper. WE CAN NOT ACCEPT PHONE OR-

DERS FOR PERSONALIZED BANDS. Allow 10-12 weeks for

delivery. EXPRESS MAIL AVAILABLE, call for cost. (2-3 weeks)

Colors: White, Blue, Green, Red, Yellow, Orange, and Black.

ONLY AVAILABLE IN SIZE 8. Line 1) up to 17 spaces

Line 2) up to 17 spaces Line 3) consecutive numbers only

E-Z LOCK RINGS WITH NUMBERS AND WITHOUT NUMBERS

Seamless banding pigeons is so very important. If a bird goes missing, a seamless band, in almost all cases, can be tracked back

to the original purchaser of the band. If you want to sell a bird, it is much harder to sell the bird because there is no way to know

how old the bird is. If you want to race, show or fly in any completion, the bird most likely will not be able to be entered without a

seamless band. Foy’s also offers a seamless personalized band. The personalized band can have your name, phone number or

other information that recognizes you as the breeder of the bird. The seamless birth bands may be found elsewhere in this catalog,

check the index. Marker bands as found on this page and the next, serve a totally different purpose. Marker bands are used to mark

special birds, male and females, pairs, etc. They come in many colors and sizes. You can get them plain or numbered. An example

of using numbered would be to use a numbered marker, say number one in blue for the cock and for his mate, put a number one

in pink that Identifies the pair as pair number one. I sell a lot of birds, and when I ship the mature birds, I mark the cocks with a blue

band and the hens with a pink. Sometimes I have birds that are not for sale and I mark them with a colored marker band with a

color that is not used for anything else. Marker bands are all removable. You only put seamless bands on the babies in the nest but

the marker bands, being removable, can be but on or removed at any time. Seamless bands and marker bands come in a number

of sizes based on the breed you keep. There is a chart in this catalog that tells you what size each breed uses. We register all the

seamless bands, so if you buy seamless bands from Foy’s, we register what you buy, and your contact information.

E-Z Lockrings Size 7mm

The ring can be closed fast and

easily attaches to the birds leg by pinching

the sides together. Once the ring is closed,

Band Storage Boxes

We sell a variety of band

storage boxes to try to meet

the needs of a variety of breeders. As a

pigeon breeder most of my life, I recognize

the need to have a variety of market bands

in the loft. Some uses of marker bands are:

E-Z Elastic Rings

• Mark all the cocks and hens.

• Use a single color or combination of colors to mark a family

of pigeons. By using a narrow line band, you might put a

red and green on the same leg to identify all the young from

a special pair.

• If you are raising some special birds for a particular race,

mark each bird you raise for that race.

• If you raise White Homers for the release business or young

Racers to fly in a team, each team member gets a special

color.

I am sure you can think of other uses of marker bands and a

band storage box would be great for any loft. We offer two

sizes of band boxes. The small is 10 ½” long and 6 ½” front

to back. The small includes dividers to create a total of 15

compartments of various sizes. The large band box is 13 ¾” x

8 ¾”. The large includes dividers to create 24 compartments

of various sizes.

Made in Belgium to vary exacting

size. Available on a "card" in increments

of 12 per card. Remove them

from the card as you need them. The

card includes an expander which expands

the band to the width needed

to place them on the birds leg. Available

in yellow, blue, pink, orange, green,

red, black , silver, violet, and white. The

numbers are laser engraved with a lifetime warranty on the

print. We suggest 2.5 mm for finch, 3 mm for canaries and 4

A new concept of elastic rings which can easily be put over

the leg of a bird using the specifically manufactured E-Z Ringing

Gun. Thanks to the use of highly elastic material, the rings

can expand up to 5 times their original size.

Benefits:

• The limited height of the rings makes it possible to

combine several colors of rings, one above the other,

greatly expanding the options for marking.

• No concerns about the rings becoming too tight as the

ring expands with the growth of the bird.

• The rings are very soft and pliable.

• The rings come in a series of bright colors which makes it

very easy to see them on the birds. This new concept

clearly provides the fancier with nothing but benefits.

• Great for pigeons, cage birds, poultry or any type of bird

that requires a way to identify them.

Your first order should be a Starter Kit, which includes the

applicator gun and 20 of the E-Z Elastic Rings in an assortment

of colors. They come in 6 sizes from the smallest for

cage birds and the largest size for poultry or larger pigeons.

When you order the Starter Kit you have what you need in

the size you need, and you do not need the applicator gun in

the future. Colors available are yellow, green, red, violet and

blue.

"Courageous Couriers"

In November 2008 I received a call from Jake

Van Dyke of Florance, Alabama. He told me

that after the American Pigeon Journal went

out of business, a relative of Frank Hollmann,

who was a relative and member of the Tennessee

Pigeon and Dove Club, acquired the

remaining copies of an out of print book called

"Courageous Couriers". The relative distributed

copies to all the club members and then Jake acquired the

remaining books. These books have been in storage for many

years and in November 2008, Foy's purchased the remaining

books and, while they last, we offer these antique, World War

II books to you, our customer. This edition was published by

Frank Hollmann of The American Pigeon Journal in May 1977.

These "Memoirs of a Pigeon Soldier" and the chronology of

events commence with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

It was a well-kept secret, but an American infantry division

landed in Northern Ireland in January 1912, and by mid

1912 the United States was deploying military pigeon communications

detachments to overseas destinations. Chapter

1 covers pigeons and Pearl Harbor. Chapter II covers

the pigeon as "Messengers Since Dawn of Civilization".

Many black and white photos are in this 136 page, soft covered

book, including many well known and some lesser known pigeon

heroes. Army lofts, equipment, personnel, methods and

training information is in this interesting book. Were you aware

that you can train racing homers to fly two ways, back and

forth to two different lofts? This book tells you how to do it.

There is just so much fascinating information. You'll be better

informed about your pigeons and you'll also learn much about

how the Pigeon Corps operated. This is a real collectors book.

many of the problems that can occur when you

attempt ANY residential or hobby building project.

I have had various consultations with government

department officials over the years, and want my

knowledge to be useful to others. Whether you want to build

or remodel a pigeon loft, an outbuilding or a new house addition,

this book will help guide you. Some people are going to be

interested in stopping your project, because they may not have

learned what an interesting hobby you have. That makes it necessary

to proceed with your project legally, and carefully. In portions

of this book I give you information about my worldly travels,

and insight about lofts and flying in Japan. I lived and traveled

there 18 months. I joined the Aomori City Racing Pigeon (desho

booklets are not professionally done. This is an archival project

in the United States and Canada. These two booklets are

an attempt to replace a scrapbook stolen from the United

Roller Club in 1937. Both authors Steve Roth and Joe Quinn

have maintained private collections of letters, bulletins, articles

and personal correspondence. Both authors feared

that their collection would be lost on their demise, so they

produced these booklets of Rollers in the mid 1800's. In the

fall of 1947 Bill Pensom came to this country and brought

along some of his best Rollers which were a mix of the Whittinghams.

If you are a flying Roller/breeder, these books

will offer an insight to the history of Rollers and make you a

better informed Roller flyer. Written by Steve Roth and Joe

Quinn. 406 pages.

Birmingham Rollers are a very unique performance

the number of Roller enthusiast. Written by Dave Gehrke

Rita are also editors of the publication "The Roller Journal".

TIP:

The hobby of pigeon keeping is one that is mostly learned

thru just having them and if you are lucky enough to have

a mentor at the beginning, you are a lucky person. The

second best thing you should consider is to borrow or buy

books on the keeping of pigeons. Reading books about

pigeon keeping just makes so much sense and will save

you from making the simplest of mistakes. A book is a path

to take; a learning tool and a way to make the hobby so

much more enjoyable.

#9010 Dr. Walker's The Pigeon $148.00

As many of you know, I am a big believer in reading books

to learn. When it comes to learning about pigeons, it is so

very important. Pigeon keeping is so unique and interesting,

but many questions will arise, mistakes made, wrong medications

used, etc. How to? When to? Why? It is all in books and

I am surprised how little is known by the beginner and very

often the person who has had pigeons most of their life. As a

person who has had pigeons most of my life, a person who

is counted on to have answers and someone who can share

the How, When and Why, I would be lost without books. On

many occasions I am asked questions that I have no answer

for, and I will suggest to the person that I will have to get

back to them. What do I do then, I go to my books. For many

years I was so lucky to have a close friend, Dr. Pigeon (Muard

Nagel), and when stumped, he was my go-to guy, but he left

this world way too early. I wish he would have found the time

to write a book.

What books would I suggest you consider? Well it depends

on your breeds, are you a beginner, have you had pigeons for

years, do you race, fly rollers, Tipplers, High Flyers, do you

show birds? Here is what I would suggest.

MINERALS | OYSTER SHELL

CHARCOAL | MAGNESIA

Oyster Shell

A natural source of calcium.

A must before and during

breeding season. Especially important for

the hens in order to produce smooth, hard

shell eggs. If the grit you use does not

contain oyster shell, we suggest you add

some. A good pigeon grit may contain as much as 45% oyster

shell. Especially important if you have a hen locked up for breeding.

The loose crushed oyster shell may be used by itself in small

containers or add to your grit.

#658 Crushed Oyster Shell 50 lbs. 34.00

Granulated Charcoal

When you feed grit with charcoal,

the birds will eat the charcoal

before anything else. Natural filter for

your birds digestive system. Add to your

grit or feed it in a small container once a

week. I keep an old pick pot container full.

Charcoal absorbs any toxins from the birds system which

contributes to good health. Give them just a small amount in

a small container.

When your pigeons are looking

sick or fluffed up, separate the sick

time digesting larger grains such as peas and corn. By

switching to the Pigeon Candy they are better able to digest

the smaller grains. Guaranteed crude protein 16.2%, crude

WHAT BENEFIT DOES SEAWEED HAVE FOR PIGEONS?

Green plants from the sea, sometimes called ‘sea vegetables’, like kelp for example, ARE GOOD SOURCES OF IODINE. It

seems that species of birds such as pigeons and parrot like birds that produce milk have a high demand for iodine. Also,

seaweeds are high in other minerals, especially calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium. They are also a fair

source of vitamins, including carotene, vitamins A, D and B2. The needs of pigeons for these substances can also be satisfied

through the use of a multivitamin mix in the drinking water. It is also useful to buy a mineral mix that contains safe levels

of selenium, which along with Vitamin E, protects cell membranes against degeneration and also adds in the development

of the immune system.

LETS promote a natural resistance to disease,

enriches the grain mixture and should be given

throughout the year. Adding stabilized vitamins, amino acids

and minerals ensures a well-balanced and complete

food. Extra carotenoids, Selenium and Vitamin E and Vitamin

C support immunity. Includes maize (corn), wheat, carrots

10%, adzuki beans, berries (Elderberry and Cranberry

(4%), minerals, vegetable oil, Marigold (0.4%), prebiotics,

example would be if you have 20 birds, add to what you

normally feed them at the rate of 1 teaspoon per bird. Carrot

corn offers all the nutrition a pigeon needs and will help prevent

the pigeons from getting fat, which, like humans, overweight

pigeons are more likely to have health issues and not

classic symptoms such as growth in their

throat or naval. Older birds show weight loss

Tony’s Treasure Tablets

Over the years various products have been described

as the “Magic Bullet” Tony’s Treasure Tablets

deserve this title because of the feedback we get from customers

who have found terrific success with the tablets. Here

at Foy’s we receive so many inquiries about pigeon health and

when we ask the customer what the symptoms are, we usually

get one or multiple replies such as fluffed up like they are cold, lethargic,

Trichocease by Dr. Pigeon

A combination of ingredients formulated

by Dr. Pigeon as an effective

canker treatment to prevent or treat Canker. Trichocease

(Canker) is very common in young birds, and

it is suggested using regularly during the breeding season.

Trichocease also has the added benefit of enhancing the immune

system. 1 teaspoon to a gallon of drinking water for 7

days, and once a week as a preventative. Makes 48 gallons.

#7039 Trichocease 8 oz. $11.00

Coccivet Liquid

A powerful combination of Amprolium

(80 g/L) and Ethopabate 5 g/L for the

effective treatment of Coccidiosis.

1 tablespoon per 2.5 gallons of water during treatment.

Treat all birds for 5-7 days. Repeat treatment as required.

Makes 36-37 gallons. For pigeons and cage birds.

Avertex Tablets by Aviomed

Double the strength of Appertex. This tablet

treats Coccidiosis and should be used when

you suspect Coccidiosis or when introducing a new bird to

your loft. One tablet per pigeon, repeat in 10 days. One tablet

to a youngster when weaning. Contains Diclazuril 5 mg.

#2509 Avertex Tablets 100 $25.00

Cocci-Cide by Dr. Pigeon

Made from 4 very common ingredients,

which has proven very effective

in treating and controlling Coccidiosis, which

causes emaciation, loss of stamina; thrush. Thrush

causes white ulcer lesions in the mouth and throat; Aspergillosis,

which causes heavy breathing, loss of appetite,

and increased thirst. Add 1 teaspoon per gallon for 3 days.

#7037 Cocci-Cide 8 oz. $11.00

Corid/Amprolium

A very effective product for treatment of Coccidiosis.

Prevention is always the best, as in

any disease, and the best thing you could do

is to be sure your loft floor is dry. Many fancy breeds spend

a lot of time on the floor, breeds such as Fantails, Muffed

Breeds, Runts, Kings, etc. These breeds are more susceptible

to Coccidiosis because if the floor is damp this creates

the ideal breeding ground for Coccidiosis. The liquid

, which is 9.6%, is used at the rate of 2 teaspoons to a gallon

and used for a suggested 7 days. The powder, which is

20%, is used at the rate of one teaspoon per gallon and also

used for a suggested 7 days. Coccidiosis is not a disease

it is a protozoa or similar to a very small bug, and usually

has droppings of very light green which may include small

amounts of blood. Coccidiosis is quite common in pigeons,

and if you suspect your birds may have it, you may want

to send in a sample of the droppings to Foy’s. We partner

with a veterinarian who will look at the droppings thru a microscope

and will know right away if Coccidiosis is present.

He will also be able to tell you if worms are present. To send

the droppings call Foy's. Coccidiosis will develop resistant

to any drug, very quickly and it is a good idea to rotate Corid

with another drug such as #2508 Cox/Trimethroprim. Do not

combine with anything else and change the treated water

daily.

Cox/Trimethroprim Powder

by Aviomed

AvioCox Powder combines Sulphadimethoxine,

the safest and most effective Sulphonamide,

with the purest and most potent water

soluble high dose Trimethoprim. Sulphadimethoxine

is one of the newer, safer and more effective Sulphas

that is ideal for the treatment and prevention of Coccidiosis.

At the high dose inclusion of Trimethoprim found in

this product, it has been proven to be very effective against

Salmonella (Paratyphoid) and Ecoli. The combination of

Trimethoprim and sulphas are well known to act synergistically

to increase its spectrum against bacteria. AvioCox is

thus highly suitable for the treatment of other bacteria especially

those found in the intestinal tract. AvioCox is the

ideal product to use when treating "Young Bird Disease".

AvioCox should be used once every eight weeks during

racing or competition flying season as a preventative treatment

against Coccidiosis. Breeding pigeons and babies

should be treated every eight weeks preventively until molting

season starts. Contains Sulphadimethoxine 12.5g Trimethoprim

20g and Dextrose Add 4 teaspoons per gallon for

5 days as a treatment. Makes about 7-8 gallons.

#2508 Cox/Trimethroprim Powder 100 gr. $26.00

Coxiworm by Aviomed

This product is a world breakthrough and

is the first of its kind to be specifically developed

for pigeons. So far there is no equivalent

available for the pigeons worldwide. It combines

three of the safest and most effective actives available, for

the unique combined treatment of Coccidiosis and worms

in pigeons. Pyrantel and Praziquantel are the two safest and

some of the most effective against the three most common

worms, (Roundworm, Hairworm and Tapeworm).

Toltazuril likewise is the most effective and safe treatment

against Coccidiosis. It also supplies a three week residual

protection against re-infections with Coccidia. This product

is completely safe and does not cause any burn of feathers

so it is ideal for weaning youngsters. 1 Coxiworm tablet per

pigeon. It is highly suggested to dose every 12 weeks if you

have an ongoing issue with worms of Coccidiosis. Dose all

babies after weaning. Rotate with Ekto/Endo+ tablets.

Floor Covering from Versele Laga

Everyone knows that a dry loft reduces the

possibility of diseases and in turn contributes

to good health of your pigeons. This floor covering

includes an anti-coccidiosis agent for natural

protection, as well as worm infections. Heated to

almost 500 degrees to eliminate any harmful ingredients.

My favorite benefit for this product is the fact that it

has cut down the need to scrape the floors every week or

two. It is suggested that you use VL Floor Covering anywhere

from every 3 months or longer. I clean out the old

material and replace it twice a year, more often if your loft is

crowded. 40 pounds per bag.

#1764 Floor Covering from Versele Laga $16.00

#1765 Floor Covering from Versele Laga 5 for 60.00

TIPS:

AMPROLIUM (CORID) should not be used during breeding

season. Foy’s floor covering helps to prevent the

spread of Coccidiosis.

Floor Covering by Natural

If you are like me, with limited time to spend

in the loft, I would suggest you consider

Natural Granulated Floor Covering. Natural Granulated

Floor Covering is a natural product consisting

of lava drawn from the subsoil and has an exceptional

absorbing power: 2.2 lbs. will absorb easily over a quart

of water. When the droppings fall on the granules, they dry very

quickly which stops the contamination cycle by parasites such

as the oocysts of Coccidiosis and of the eggs of ascarids (intestinal

worms). Another benefit of Natural Granulated Floor

Covering is that the granules absorb the smell of the droppings.

You might want to spread some around the nest bowl when

young birds eject liquid droppings. The granulated floor may

stay in the loft for up to a year provided it is raked weekly and

also adds good insulation against the cold. Young birds love to

lay down in this product. Their droppings dry quickly and their

feet are always clean. A 44 lb. bag will cover about 16 square

feet at ½” deep. I have over 300 pigeons and use it in all my

lofts, nest bows and breeding cages.

Moxidectin Gel

Moxidectin Gel was brought

to our attention by a breeder

who has been using it for over

10 years, and highly recommends

it. It is a product that is different

than most other products in the

way it is prepared. Not only does

it eliminate the most common roundworms, it also eliminates

the Gapeworm, Air Sac mites, other mites and most internal

parasites. Lice, which live off feathers, so you would think

that Moxidectin would have no effect, but experience shows that

most lice will also be disposed of. The breeder who suggested

we add Moxidectin to our product line, sent along three pages

of testimonials! The product is similar to a large syringe that has

notches on it. Add four notches to a cup of warm water and put

this in your blender. Blend for 30 seconds add this mixture to a

gallon of drinking water. Give for one day and then repeat the

process after 9 days. It is very Important, as with all roundworm

treatments, to clean the loft after treatment. The Moxidectin does

not kill round worms, as with all round worm treatment, it paralyzes

them and they are expelled thru the droppings. If you do not

clean the loft, especially the floor and perches, the pigeons could

become reinfected by eating worms on the floor and perch. If

your pigeons are exposed to the outsides and go to the ground,

they sometimes pick up roundworms. If worms are an ongoing

problem, this exposure to the ground may be your problem and

you should consider treating every month or at least twice a year,

as the lifespan of the round worm is six months. Moxidetin remains

in a birds system for up to 30 days.

#585 Moxidectin Gel 0.05 oz. (14.4 grams) $20.00

Levamisole/Vermisol

A very efficient wormer for all worms except Tapeworms

which are rare. It is suggested to remove

feed 24 hours before using, and a few hours after to reduce vomiting

which is a common side effect. The powder is 4 teaspoons per

gallon for one day. Repeat in 10-12 days. The powder contains

7.5 grams of Levamisole. Moisten the feed with a little #2534

Feather and Immune Oil.

Hairworm infestation and one of the few

products that is effective against Lungworm

and Nasal Mites. Ivermectin has the added benefit that it

will also control blood sucking lice such as the red mite.

Praziquantel is well known to be the safest and by far the

most effective products for the treatment of tapeworm in

pigeons. It is not recommended to dose Avio-Ekto/Endo +

during the molt. Dose 1 tablet every 12 weeks. Each tablet

contains Ivermectin 0.1 mg and Praziquantel 7.5 mg.

Worm Powder by Aviomed

An extremely safe and effective combination

of Pyrantel Pamoate and

Praziquantel in special powdered form. The

two active ingredients combine very well to ensure

maximum effectiveness against the three

most common pigeon worms, (Roundworm,

Hairworms and Tapeworms) The product is completely safe

and does not cause feather "burn" of the feathers, so it may

be used during the breeding season. It is extremely mild and

will not cause vomiting or loss of racing performance. Mix 5gr (1

heaped teaspoon) with four teaspoons of water, leave stand for

30 minutes, and mix to make a paste. Add this to about a quarter

pound of grain and feed to the birds. Make a second batch

in the evening to be sure all birds are treated. Treat again in 12

weeks and alternate with Endo/Ekto tablets. Pyrantel pamoate

10%, Praziquantel 2 % and special adherent base 88%.

#2515 Avioworm Powder 100 gr. $17.00

Wormout Gel

Suitable for the worming of non

food producing birds. Wormout

Gel is ideal for crop needle administration

however for ease of use it should be delivered

in water. Kills Thread worms, Tape worms,

Round worms, Caecal worms, and Hook worms in

caged and aviary birds and pigeons. Using a small

container (preferably with a lid that can be screwed

on) measure 1 1/2 teaspoons of water and add to

your container. Prime the wormout gel pump and add 1 ml/cc

of the gel to 1 1/2 teaspoons of water. Screw your lid on and

shake it for 5-10 seconds to break up the gel. The dose of the

diluted wormout gel mixture is 0.5 (1/2) ml/cc per 100 grams

body weight via crop needle. Remember that the crop needle

will have an air space in it which may effect the dose that is

actually delivered. For instance, a 12 gauge crop needle has

an empty space about 0.45 ml/cc. You need to allow for the air

space in whatever needle you are using. You need to know the

weight of your birds, any good "bird book" will give the average

weight of various species. The active constituents are Praziquantel

20 g/L and Oxfendazole 20 g/L for the treatment of

threadworms (capillaria). The 100 ml/cc and the 250 ml/cc sizes

deliver 1 ml/cc for each pump. All aviary birds add 2 ml/cc to

160 ml/cc (2 pumps to 1 1/3 cup) of drinking water for 2 days.

Aviaries should be treated at least 4 times a year. 160 ml/cc is

1/6 of a gallon. Remember to Mix 1 tsp in a container with water

and shake up before adding the drinking water. It is what I use.

NPA LEGACY FUND

As a pigeon fancier for over 65 years, and owner of a pigeon business for over 25 years, I have

witnessed the slow decline of the hobby. There a number of reasons for this decline, and most can

figure out the reasons. Eleven years ago, some far sighted National Pigeon Fanciers, decided to

look at the future a create a vehicle to fund projects that would help the great hobby of keeping

pigeons. The NPA Legacy Fund Trust was created and started to accept contributions. The fund

raising started out slowly, people had to get used to the idea and many waited to be sure the idea

worked and would grow. Although the National Pigeon Association Legacy Fund Trust is an arm of the National Pigeon Association, it is meant to benefit or help the

entire pigeon hobby. The Trust accepts contributions from all those who have an interest in supporting the great hobby. We have received contributions from family

members of pigeon fanciers, both in honor of or in memorial. We have received contributions from non NPA members who enjoy their pigeons and want to help the

hobby. Many clubs have sent in contributions and some of these clubs do or plan to, make a contribution every year. All contributions are cumulative, meaning every

time you contribute, your contributions accumulate and you are getting closer to the next contribution level. Contributions, when they reach $100.00 or more, are

recognized in the National Pigeon Association Quarterly, twice a year. The contribution will also be listed on the NPA website.

Gold Band Level The first level, which is $100.00 which is needed to be listed forever in the Quarterly and the web site. A certificate is sent to the contributor in case

of a memorial or the to the person honored.

Ruby Band Level

Platinum Band Level

The second level which is the $500.00 level, and a Ruby Certificate, in a frame, is awarded.

The third level is reached when contributions reach the $1000.00 level. Another appreciative framed certificate is sent.

Other levels are in place, they are;

Diamond $5000.00 Presidents $10,000.00 Vision $50,000.00

Some of our members have included the Trust in their wills, and this is a great way of their recognizing the need and doing what they can to continue this great hobby.

One such person has made us aware of a future contribution of $15,000, and others have also added the Trust to their will. If you are person who would consider

adding the Trust to your will, please inform us of this future contribution.

Listed below are all of the contributors, to date. Another way to help is to consider donating pigeon related items or pigeons. The Trust plans on having an auction in

the future and each item sold at this auction, will be recognized and if the contribution garners $100.00 or more, the appropriate level will be listed as if it were a cash

contribution. If the auctioned items do not reach the $100.00 dollar level or for that matter is close to any level, the contributor may add to the amount. For instance,

your contribution reaches $75.00, if you send in a contribution of $25.00 and you will have attained the Gold Band Level.

Contributions are to made out to NPA LFT and mailed to Jerry Gagne, Chairman LFT, 3170 Bennett’s Run Rd., Beaver Falls, Pa. 15010 724-359-5355


VIRUS

ORDERS: 1-877-355-7727 • FOYSPETSUPPLIES.COM

Pigeon Nutri-Drops

Adeno virus, PMV and Circovirus are different strains

of the same virus. Circovirus is an infectious transmittable

disease that spreads form one bird to another. It is

assumed to be spread though physical contact as well as

on the dust in the loft, therefore, making it airborne. Once

in the loft every pigeon will be exposed to the virus and the

majority will become infected. Birds that do become sick

will almost invariably die. The ones that do not become sick

eventually clear the virus from their system. We do not know

how long this takes but if is thought the majority will clear in

4-6 months. However, there is the possibility that some birds

will fail to clear the virus and remain as persistent carriers.

WHILE THE VIRUS IS ACTIVE IT INTERFERES WITH

THE FUNCTIONING OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM. KILL-

ING OF BIRDS WILL NOT ELIMINATE THE VIRUS BE-

CAUSE THE MAJORITY OF INFECTED BIRDS SHOW

NO SYMPTOMS. Viruses attack in two waves. 90% of

birds die in the second wave because an impaired immune

system has increased their vulnerability to secondary disease.

It is essential that birds develop a good immunity to

the second wave to avoid death. Remember that all birds

need a strong immune system to fight off infections and

disease. Pigeons Nutri-Drops contain high energy vitamins,

amino acids and minerals to boost the immune system.

Backed by 20 years of research, field trials and two U.S.

patents and Pigeon Nutri-Drops owns the first patent ever

for “speed of nutrient availability. Mike Owens, Boxes for

Birds writes “ My birds were dying. My birds tested positive

for PMV/Circovirus. I lost 900 birds & lost all hope. I GAVE

THE BIRDS Pigeon Nutri-Drops and in a very short period

of time, my birds were perky. I am so delighted with Nutri-

Drops that I have ordered two cases to give to the rest of

my birds. Thank you to Bovidr for saving my birds”. Nutri

Drops may be combined with any antibiotic, it actually

makes the antibiotic even more effective. Do not combine

with any canker or wormer medicine of any kind, this

combination could be fatal to a pigeon. Directions- Add up

to 1 teaspoon of Nutri-Drops to a gallon of drinking water. If

the weather is very hot, reduce to about ½ teaspoon. Use for

as long as needed or as long as you want to add antibiotic.

Change the water daily.

#1792 Pigeon Nutri-Drops 8 oz. $27.00

Adeno-Zap

A natural blend designed to quicken the recovery of

Adeno virus, as no antibiotic will treat the disease.

Adeno-Zap may greatly shorten the side effects. You have

heard of Adeno Virus or experienced its devastating effects.

Symptoms may include loose watery, yellow diarrhea,

vomiting up feed and sudden death. The spread of the virus

may start in one age group and then spread to birds of all

ages. Some birds in the same loft may show no symptoms

at all and are not sick. When you have a bird(s) that you

suspect has the Adeno-Virus, you must segregate the birds,

preferably in another building or cage if possible. Add one

teaspoon to a gallon of water, after they have been fed. Treat

the sick birds until symptoms are gone. You should also treat

the entire flock for three consecutive days and then repeat

giving it to the whole flock in one week for three consecutive

days. If symptoms persist, repeat the following week.

Use distilled water, especially for the sick birds. A blend

of natural herbs. KEEP REFRIGERATED AND MAKE A

FRESH BATCH EVERY DAY. Once they have the Adeno

Virus, they will not get it again and they are not carriers.

#682 Adeno-Zap 8 oz. $37.00

Improver

A unique patented product (natural organic acids)

designed to improve the flying or show performance

and to protect the pigeon against bacterial diseases such

as: Paratyphoid, Salmonella, E. Coli, and others. At the

same time it brings the birds into top condition day after day!

The body of the bird will look much better (feathers) and

stronger (before, during, and after performance) together

with an improvement of orientation to direction in a race.

Improver helps with Adenovirus resistance, reduces

drastically the sickness, fungal, and bacteria all year long.

This is a super concentrated product and you merely add

1/2 teaspoon to a gallon of water 2-3 days a week every

week, year round if desired or as often as you decide for your

flock. May be mixed with vitamins, electrolytes and probiotics.

Will make approx. 80 gallons.

#2567 Improver 125 gr. $36.00

Antifungal

A great additive to Improver designed to

solve the problems of fungal. This product

is meant to be used in combination with

Improver, not by itself. Kills the high concentration

of the fungal "Candida Albican". In combination

with Improver it kills bad bacteria as Salmonella, E.

Coli, and in addition of fungal also inhibits the spreading of

Canker and other diseases through drinking water. It replaces

antibiotic damage, therefore it stops the destruction of the

natural micro flora in the birds that was generally caused by

antibiotics. Simply add 1 spoon to a gallon 2 times a week

(spoon included). The effects are visible in less than a week.

One container will take care of 100 pigeons per day for a

period of six months. Will make approximately 60 gallons.

Elderberry Juice by Foy's

Grown and bottled in the good olde

U.S.A. A juice to be added to the

drinking water at the rate of 3 teaspoons to a gallon

of drinking water or may be added to the feed at the

rate of 3 teaspoons to 2 lbs. Experts and fanciers

from around the world suggest that Elderberry Juice

will effectively combat the ADENO VIRUS. Reported

studies suggest the duration of RESPIRATORY

issues to be reduced by several days. Other studies

have shown the Elderberry to be an effective

fighter of H5N1 bird flu. Refrigerate after opening.

#502 Elderberry Juice 13 oz. $23.00

TIP:

BEFORE VACCINATING it is important to treat for 10

days against paratyphoid in order to get rid of any lurking

paratyphoid that may be in the bird. Furazolidon,

Cox/Trimethroprim and Typhoid Cure would be good

choices. After the ten days, treat with a probiotic for

2-3 days followed by the vaccinations. Using immune

boosters before and after vaccination significantly raises

the level of protection that the vaccine provides.

PARATYPHOID | SALMONELLA

E. COLI | VACCINES

The KM-PMV and KM-1 may be used at the same time.

KM-PMV Vaccine

Pigeon Paramyxovirus is endemic in the feral pigeon

population, and hence can be dragged in by any flying

birds that might mix with feral (think young bird races). It can also

be carried and intermittently shed by apparently healthy adult pigeons,

especially in stressful situations such as races, shows,

mount ... Because PMV is so devastating and ubiquitous, it is

extremely important to protect (vaccinate) your birds against this

disease. The New KM-PMV Vaccine is: Proven effective against

Pigeon Paramyxo disease. Extensively tested in both Lab and

Field for both effectiveness and also for safety. Developed from

the actual field virus isolated from a pigeon that was sick and

died from PMV disease. Developed by successful pigeon fanciers/veterinarians,

Drs. John Kazmierczak and Paul Miller; manufactured

by ARKO, a successful, USDA licensed vaccine Lab.

Technical support available from Dr. Kazmierczak at (609) 771-

0995 (West Trenton Animal Hospital). Same smooth, gentle adjuvant

as KM-1 vaccine: eliminates: vaccine reaction, down time,

losses USDA incensed: legal to sell, possess ship and use. For

use in all types of pigeons: racing showing, meat, pet, flying, research

... Shipped with an ice pack via 2ND DAY AIR.

#501 KM-PMV Vaccine 100 dose $139.00

KM-1 Paratyphoid Vaccine

Made available in 2013, after years of development and

testing. Dr. John Kazmierczak and Dr Paul Miller, both

lifelong racing pigeon fanciers, developed this vaccine. Vaccinated

birds were challenged in tests and DID NOT get Paratyphoid,

unvaccinated birds developed Paratyphoid after challenged. Earlier

vaccines that were available had a tendency to make birds

sick and occasionally cause death. This vaccine has shown

minimal side effects and may be given to birds as young as

six weeks. KM-1 contains strains from racing pigeons, show

pigeons and meat pigeons, these are current strains that previous

vaccines did not protect against. Each bottle will treat 100

birds at the rate of 1/4 cc. Initially the birds are vaccinated twice,

3 weeks apart and then once every six months. Paratyphoid

is almost an epidemic in North America, and the only way to

prevent Paratyphoid is with a long term approach of vaccination.

Symptoms of Paratyphoid may include twisted neck, lack of coordination,

limp, dropped wing, eggs not hatching, young dying

in the shell or at weaning age, sudden death and in some cases

none of these symptoms but still have the disease. KM-1 is a

killed bacterium. You may vaccinate against Paratyphoid

using KM-1 Vaccine while using Lasota in the drinking water,

in fact it is a good idea. The KM-1 will stimulate the immune

system and activate the immune system which in turn will

make the Lasota more effective. Shipped with an ice pack via

2ND DAY AIR.

"Understanding Pigeon Paramyxovirus"

The sole purpose of this booklet is to explain

to pigeon breeders what Paramyxovirus

(PMV) is, and to stress the need to vaccinate the

birds and to take hygienic precautions. The pigeonbreeder

will then understand that if there is an illness

in one of the lofts, washing hands, changing shoes

and overalls before going from loft to loft may prevent a catastrophe.

The book includes sketches, photos and vaccinating info.

Lasota PMV Strain Vaccine

For years many pigeon fanciers have used the Lasota

vaccine, rather than the PMV-1 Vaccine, and now

we all have to use Lasota. The Lasota is not an injectable.

I recently spoke to a very well know veterinarian about using

the Lasota. He uses it and is quite satisfied with its ability to

prevent PMV-1. The veterinarian explained in detail how he

uses it, and Foy’s is quite pleased to pass on this information.

Once you open the bottle, you must use it all or dispose

of what you do not use. THE LASOTA MUST BE KEPT

COLD, NOT FROZEN. Keep it in the refrigerator until you are

ready to use it. The first way to use it is in the drinking water,

but this is not recommended because it may not do the job, as

it is assuming the pigeon drinks enough of the water, and this

is not always the case. If you have a very large flock, you may

have to go this route, but if you have some valuable or some

very special pigeons, it is suggest you use the second method

on at least those. When using the vaccine in the drinking water,

you should first do the following: Do not feed them the night

before, or if you use a cafeteria feeder, remove it. The

next morning, place the feed before them and they will

eat rapidly. 3-4 hours later put a gallon of distilled water,

with the vaccine added, in front of them. You want them

to be very thirsty so they will drink. The vaccine loses

its potency after just 3-4 hours, which is why you want

them to drink right away. The second method requires you

to handle each bird. Open the Lasota bottle and fill with distilled

water. Shake the bottle to dissolve the vaccine. Add this to a

2 ounce dropper bottle and fill the remainder of the bottle with

water. Using the eye dropper (included), place one drop directly

into the eye and then one directly into nose hole. When giving

the drops in the nostril, hold a finger over the opposite nostril to

close it and repeat when you do the other nostril. By doing this,

the drop will be sucked right into the nostril. It is recommended

that you start with the Lasota two months before the race or

show season. Whether you put it in the drinking water, or use

a dropper, the treatment is for one day per month and repeated

all thru race or show season. The idea is to treat during the

period pigeons are mixed with other people’s pigeons. The Vet

suggest 1 bottle to a gallon of drinking water but no more than

one bottle to 2 gallons. You may vaccinate against Paratyphoid

using KM-1 Vaccine while using Lasota in the drinking water,

in fact it is a good idea. The KM-1 will stimulate the immune

system and activate the immune system which in turn will make

the Lasota more effective.

Cox/Trimethroprim Powder

by Aviomed

AvioCox Powder combines

Sulphadimethoxine, the safest and most effective

Sulphonamide, with the purest and most potent

water soluble high dose Trimethoprim. Sulphadimethoxine

is one of the newer, safer and more effective Sulphas

that is ideal for the treatment and prevention of Coccidiosis.

At the high dose inclusion of Trimethoprim found in this product,

it has been proven to be very effective against Salmonella

(Paratyphoid) and Ecoli. The combination of Trimethoprim

and sulphas are well known to act synergistically to increase its

spectrum against bacteria. AvioCox is thus highly suitable for

the treatment of other bacteria especially those found in the respiratory

system. AvioCox is the ideal product to use when

treating "Young Bird Disease". AvioCox should be used once

every eight weeks during racing or competition flying season

as a preventative treatment against Coccidiosis. Breeding pigeons

Muscle & Wing Powder by Aviomed

Muscle and Wing Disease is a bacterial disease

that under certain specific conditions

starts over growing that initially only causes

inflammation in the breast muscles. Symptoms

are blue discoloration and swelling of

the breast muscles. Pigeons become unwilling

to train as a result of inflammation

of the breathing muscles. Pigeons often sit

with their beaks hanging open causing fanciers to confuse

it with respiratory disease. High dose treatment with

Amoxicillin trihydrate is the treatment of choice. Use for 7

days, may be used effectively mid racing season when pigeons

are starting to lose form. Also treats Enteritis, Diarrhea,

E.Coli and Paratyphoid. 40% Ultra Pure Amoxicillin

trihydrate, Neomycin Sulfate, immune stimulants and

herbals. Use over feed as per directions. Mix 5g (1 heaped

spoon included) with 50ml of clean water. Mix thoroughly

until no lumps remain. It will form a gel. Mix gel with

1kg of pigeon food, leave to dry and feed then. Treat for

7 consecutive days, morning & evening. CRITICALLY ILL

PIGEONS THAT ARE NOT EATING; mix the Gel as directed

above. Mix 50ml of the gel as above. Keep this in

the fridge (may be kept for 7 days). Dose each bird with 1 ml

directly in to crop (1/4 TEASPOON) using a syringe 2 x per

day for 7 days or until pigeon is eating again. The 200 ml

container is enough to treat 120 pigeons for 7 days.

#2505 Muscle & Wing Powder 200 gr. $61.00

Young Bird Disease

YBD is a frustrating disease that affects

young pigeons between the age

of 4 weeks and one year. YBD is a multifactorial

disease that is seen clinically when pigeons

contract Circovirus and they are stressed and/

or suffer from other underlying diseases such as Paramyxovirus,

Trichomoniasis, Coccidiosis and Salmonella

amongst others. Pigeons initially show symptoms of

listlessness and loss of appetite, this is soon followed by

excessive drinking of water and Vomiting as well as

a bad smelling yellow to green diarrhea. Pigeons lose

weight rapidly and about 10 – 20 % of untreated pigeons

die. If pigeons are not treated effectively they may become

severely stunted and never recover fully to become competitive

during the racing season. An incredible new combination

product that contains the two safest and most effective

antibiotics against the secondary bacteria found in YBD

(Amoxicillin and Colistin) combined with four well researched

and proven natural immune stimulants has been hailed as a

world breakthrough in the treatment of this dreaded disease.

Dr. Botha’s YBD-Cure is based on years of painstaking personal

research combined with knowledge gained from the

latest scientific articles printed in Veterinary journals. The

unique and effective combination of Capsicum oleoresin

(Capsicum), Turmeric oleoresin (Curcumin), Olea europaea

( Oleuropein) and Beta Glucan as anti-viral and immune

stimulating elements with the high dose antibiotics make

this product far superior to any other YBD products available.

Add 1 heaped teaspoon to 50ml ( 1 3/4 oz.) of water.

Mix thoroughly until no lumps remain, it will form a gel. Mix

the gel with 1 kg (2.2 lbs) of feed leave to dry and feed the

birds. Treat for 7 days consecutive, morning and evening

The container is enough for 60 birds for 7 days.

easily. When Bromhexine is combined with respiratory antibiotics

such as Mycoban (#2521) and Doxycycline (#2548) it

increases the levels of antibiotics in the lung tissue. Bromhexine

is of tremendous aid in the treatment of respiratory

disease in pigeons. Bromhexine may be combined with

any antibiotic used in the treatment of respiratory disease

for the first four days of treatment. Contains ultra

pure, highly potent Bromhexine HCL 1% m/m. (Does not

minimum of 21 days but in severe cases of paratyphoid

as long as 45 days. Effective treatment of Ornithosis,

mycoplasmosis and respiratory infections. Treatment is one

teaspoon per gallon. Remove grit during treatment. Follow with

Tony’s Treasure Tablets

Over the years various products

have been described as the “Magic

Bullet” Tony’s Treasure Tablets deserve this title

because of the feedback we get from customers

who have found terrific success with the tablets.

Here at Foy’s we receive so many inquiries about

pigeon health and when we ask the customer what the

symptoms are, we usually get one or multiple replies such

as fluffed up like they are cold, lethargic, poor performance,

loss of weight, diarrhea, etc. We get as much information

from the customer and we usually suggest Tony’s Treasure

Tablets. Tony’s Treasure works well when treating one eyed

colds, canker, respiratory issues, diarrhea, weight loss, and

more. When people ask what they should keep on hand,

one of the suggestions is Tony’s Treasure Tablets.

Tylan 200 Injectable

Highly recommended by Vets to

treat many forms of respiratory

problems in Pigeons. If your Pigeons

are of the flying variety and they are not

performing as expected, you may have

a respiratory issue. Mycoplasma Gallisepticum,

a breathing problem, may be

found in as many as 30% of the racing

pigeon lofts. Overcrowding of young birds may bring this

problem. Sometimes the Pigeons show no symptoms and

yet have respiratory problems. Tylan may also be an aid in

treating one-eye colds. 1/2 cc injection under loose skin

behind neck. Dosed for pigeons only.

Spiradox by Aviomed

Spiradox is currently by far the

safest and most effective treatment

for Orniplasmosis (combined

infection and Mycoplasmosis). The

two most common respiratory problems. The combination

of antibiotics acts together optimally. It has the added

advantage of not causing a loss of performance after treatment.

The tablet is small and easy to dose sugar coated for

individual treatment whereas the powder is recommended

for larger lofts that are treating larger numbers of pigeons.

Powder - Treat pigeons for 7 days continuously, at least 8

weeks before the racing season. Eight weekly preventative

treatments, for 3 days, during the season are advised.

It is strongly advised to alternate treatment with Mycoban

(#2521). Treat breeding pigeons for 7 days, at least 8 weeks

prior the start of the breeding season. Always combine with

Avio-Bromhexine (#2522) for the first 4 days of treatment.

Tablet - Treat ill pigeons continuously with 1 tablet per day

for 7 days. Contains Doxycycline HCL, Spiramycin and

Dextrose. The powder is used at the rate of 4 teaspoons

to a gallon. It should be combined with #2522 Bromhexine

for the first 4 days. Remove grit during treatment. Nothing

better. Makes about 20 gallons.

#27 Vetafarm’s Pigeon Respire 50 Tablets $26.00

Tylan Powder

Highly recommended by Vets to treat

many forms of respiratory problems. If

your birds are of the flying variety and they are not

performing as expected, you may have a respiratory

issue. Mycoplasma Gallisepticum, a breathing

problem, may be found in as many as 30% of the racing

pigeon lofts. Overcrowding of young birds may bring this

problem. Sometimes the birds show no symptoms and yet

have respiratory problems. Tylan may also be an aid in treating

one-eye colds. Tylan powder is used at the rate of 2

teaspoons per gallon for 5 days. Makes about 10 gallons.

#2501 Tylan Powder 100 gr. $39.00

TIP:

E-Coli can attack the joints, making pigeons display exactly

the same symptoms as Paratyphoid/Salmonella

(Swollen Joints). Most people would first assume that

if their birds had lameness, dropped wing or wings, but

no swollen joints, can’t fly, infertility babies dying in the

nest or not hatching, the birds had Paratyphoid as most

would. You would be wrong. These symptoms would

be E-Coli.

1 Drop 1 Eye 1 Time by Dr. Pigeon

When I spoke to Dr. Pigeon about

this product, he warned me that a

customer would only buy it once, because it lasted so

long. If the bird has a one eye cold, this will get rid of

it. One drop, in 1 eye, 1 time and it’s gone. Makes over

900 drops. One fluid ounce dropper bottle.

#7051 1 Drop 1 Eye 1 Time 1 oz. $24.00

Forma Soothing Eye Drops by Versele-Laga

Your pigeons have a very hard time during

competition and while they are in the

basket. Fighting may cause injuries and the poor

ventilation in the basket leaves much to be desired.

Keeping this in mind, it is almost impossible to avoid

respiratory problems. The Forma Eye Drops are a way for

checking the respiratory tract. The eye drops are meant to

run away from the tear duct after application. The blue color

should then be visible in the throat. Very easy to use. If the

drops do not appear immediately in the throat, treat for respiratory

issues. One drop in the nostril and in each eye the day

of basketing for a competition, and the day they return from a

race or day after a competition. If your pigeon has an eye problem,

one drop in morning and one in the evening, into the eye.

#1711 Forma Drops 15 ml Dropper Bottle $15.00

Linca-Specta 20% Powder

Mycoplasmosis occurs around the world and

infects not only pigeons, but other species of

birds. Pigeons of all ages may contract this infection.

In all cases conditions exist which lower the immune

system, and this lowered immunity allows the outbreak of Mycoplasmosis.

Pigeons may be a carrier and show no symptoms.

The first symptoms show themselves as a grey deposit of nasal

discharge that appear as a slimy thread from the lower beak to

the upper beak when the mouth is open. Wheezing and a rattle

may be heard at night. As an aid in the prevention and treatment

of resistant Mycoplasmosis (slime in the throat) and bacterial

diseases, add 1 1/2 tablespoons to a gallon of clean drinking

water daily for 5-7 days continuously. May be combined with

Bromhexine. Follow with a Probiotic.

#2554 Linca-Specta 20% Powder 100 gr. $32.00

Broncho Plus Liquid

Respiratory problems are one of the most

widespread problems in pigeon racing. Due

to warm and humid conditions under transport,

most pigeons are exposed to respiratory diseases

during the racing season. These problems often

come along with large amounts of mucus whereby the pigeons

show reduced oxygen intake with lesser available energy. The

risk for bacterial grown on the mucus membranes is increased

followed by secondary infections. The results are reduced performance

in races and increased diseases under transport and

in the loft. Features: Against respiratory diseases in the racing

season decrease the amount of excessive mucus in the respiratory

tract. Stimulates the natural defense of the organism

Supports in case of heat stress Natural - no side-effects and

resistance. Feed-grade quality ingredients and GMP+ certified

Broncho Plus is a well-balanced formulation based on different

natural essential oils based on peppermint, eucalyptus oil, and

menthol. Helps the pigeons to decrease the amount of excessive

mucus in the respiratory tract. Instructions for use: In racing

season (to avoid outbreak): 2ml per liter of drinking water for 2-3

days every 3 weeks. If the weather is hot: 1-2 days before basking

and after a race may be beneficial. Treatment: 2ml per liter of

drinking water for 6-7 days until symptoms disappear.

One never knows what a race bird or for

by Dr. Pigeon

good bacteria.

#7034 Rejuvenation/Probiotic 1 lb. $14.00

TIP:

A lot of calcium is needed for the proper development

of eggshells muscles. Calcium deficiency causes abnormal

egg shells and/or weakness of the oviduct, the result

may be the inability to pass the eggs. If you have frequent

problems with eggs not being passed, there may

be something wrong with your pigeon’s diet. Before and

during the breeding season, pigeons need a continuous

supply of calcium. After the season make sure your hens

are getting a lot of calcium.

Viromune has been specifically formulated to act as a

natural immune enhancer in the prevention and control

a pro biotic. Makes about 40 gallons.

#2528 Viromune Powder 200 gr. $19.00

Adeno-Zap

A natural blend designed to quicken the recovery

of Adeno, a virus, as no antibiotic will treat

the disease. Adeno-Zap may greatly shorten the side

effects. You have heard of Adeno Virus or, god forbid,

experienced its devastating effects. Symptoms may

include loose watery, yellow diarrhea, vomiting up

feed and sudden death. Sudden death is the most

common symptom. The spread of the virus may start in

one age group and then spread to birds of all ages. Some birds

in the same loft may show no symptoms at all and are not sick.

Don’t wait until you need it, order Adeno-Zap now, and be ready.

Please keep it in mind that Adeno Zap is not an antibiotic, it is

a natural product to quicken the recovery from the Adeno-Virus

and to eliminate the side effects, such as poor food digestion,

vomiting feed and yellow loose stinky droppings. When you have

a bird or birds that you suspect has the Adeno-Virus, based on

the symptoms described, you must segregate the birds, preferably

in another building or cage if possible. Add one teaspoon

to a gallon of water, after they have been fed. Treat the sick birds

until symptoms are gone. You should also treat the entire flock

for three consecutive days and then repeat giving it to the whole

flock in one week for three days consecutive days. If symptoms

persist, repeat the following week. Use distilled water, especially

for the sick birds. The dosage is one teaspoon per gallon of

water. A blend of natural herbs. KEEP REFRIGERATED AND

MAKE A FRESH BATCH EVERY DAY.

#682 Adeno-Zap 8 oz. $37.00

Adeno S Liquid

AdenoS is not a treatment for the Adeno

Virus, as you may know, there is no treatment

for a virus. However, the combination of the

natural organic acids and vitamins in Adeno S,

seems to reduce the bloom of E. coli when the pigeons

are exposed to the Adeno virus, and thereby

taking the burden from the young birds. After 1-2

weeks the young birds survive and develop an immunity to the

virus. We also found that it was beneficial to mix AdenoS with

an electrolyte. Directions are to mix 4 teaspoons to a gallon of

drinking water, change daily. For young birds showing signs of

the Adeno virus, such as vomiting and a reluctance to fly.

Four teaspoons to a gallon of drinking water until the symptoms

are gone. Preferably combined with an electrolyte such as #529

Pigeon Nutri-Drops

Adeno virus, PMV and Circovirus are different

strains of the same virus. Circovirus

is an infectious transmittable disease that spreads

form one bird to another. It is assumed to be

spread though physical contact as well as on the

dust in the loft, therefore, making it airborne. Once

in the loft every pigeon will be exposed to the virus

and the majority will become infected. Birds that do become

sick will almost invariably die. The ones that do not become

sick eventually clear the virus from their system. We do not

know how long this takes but if is thought the majority will

clear in 4-6 months. However, there is the possibility that

some birds will fail to clear the virus and remain as persistent

carriers. Viruses attack in two waves. 90% of birds die

in the second wave because an impaired immune system

has increased their vulnerability to secondary disease. It is

essential that birds develop a good immunity to the second

wave to avoid death. Remember that all birds need a strong

immune system to fight off infections and disease. Pigeons

Nutri-Drops contain high energy vitamins, amino acids and

minerals to boost the immune system. Backed by 20 years

of research, field trials and two U.S. patents and Pigeon

Nutri-Drops owns the first patent ever for “speed of nutrient

availability. Nutri Drops may be combined with any

antibiotic, it actually makes the antibiotic even more

effective. Do not combine with any canker or wormer medicine

of any kind, this combination could be fatal to a pigeon.

Directions- Add up to 1 teaspoon of Nutri-Drops to a gallon

of drinking water. If the weather is very hot, reduce to about

½ teaspoon. Use for as long as needed or as long as you
