REFACE

Natural Grains was established in 1936 by the brothers Noël and Robert

De Scheemaecker, pigeon racing champions in those days, and editors,

since 1930, of a magazine on pigeon racing in French and in Dutch.

More than 70 years later, Natural, the first producer of grain mixtures

for racing pigeons is still controlled by the De Scheemaecker family.

This longevity is unique in the world of pigeon fancying.

The Natural company enjoys worldwide fame in the field of

racing pigeons’ feed, care and the breeding of racing pigeons.

Natural mixtures and complementary products are sold in over

46 countries. Pigeon fanciers all over the world confide in Natural.

These are our assets:

• over 80 years of experience practising pigeon racing

• over 75 years of experience and active presence in books

and magazines on pigeon racing

• over 70 years of experience in the production of grain mixtures

and complementary products

• over 50 years of experience in the management of the largest

and oldest Breeding Station for racing pigeons in the world.

In this leaflet we present our complementary products to provide improved

feeding and hygiene for the racing pigeon. They are the result of the extensive

experience gathered by pigeon fanciers and intensified specialisation.

To this effect the number of products is reduced. Indeed, we only wish

to present useful products having the qualities we can truly believe in.

All our products are intensively tested at the Natural Breeding Station

which houses 14.000 pigeons but are also tested in our pigeon lofts

and in the lofts of the pigeon fanciers of our staff.

NATURAMINE

OLIGO BOOST

NATURAMINE IS A TONIC CONSISTING OF MINERALS,

TRACE ELEMENTS AND IMPORTANT AMINO ACIDS.

NATURAMINE IS ASSIMILATED VERY EASILY

BY THE PIGEON ORGANISM.

2

250 ML - 500 ml


Naturamine is a tonic consisting of minerals, trace elements and important

amino acids. Naturamine is assimilated very easily by the pigeon organism.

RACING – BREEDING – MOULT

During the racing season Naturamine enhances the pigeon’s physical

condition. Naturamine is the ideal supplement during the breeding and

moulting season. During these two periods additional administration of

minerals and trace elements is essential.

Regular use of Naturamine guarantees a successful breeding season,

healthy young birds, pigeons in top condition and a perfect moult.

The Naturamine minerals and oligo-elements in liquid form are very well

tolerated and absorbed as opposed to the solid substances of which only a

very small percentage is absorbed, resulting in a much smaller positive effect.

By adding important amino acids such as methonin and lysine that are

important for the pigeon’s growth process and of cholin for enhanced

functioning of the liver and through its specific composition, Naturamine

is a very efficient tonic for the pigeon’s physical condition and overall

health condition.

• Improves physical condition

• Improves growth

• Enhances the functioning of the liver

• Stimulates the formation of haemoglobin of the red blood cells

• Guarantees a silky-soft plumage

• DIRECTIONS OF USE

Initial dose

5 ml - 1 coffee spoon per litre of drinking water

Important

before starting the maintenance dose a course of treatment

during 5 consecutive days with a 5 ml dose per litre of

drinking water must be followed.

Maintenance scheme

Racing season

Once per week after the return from a race.

Breeding season

Two to three times weekly from pairing up to the time

of weaning off.

Moulting season

Twice weekly during the entire moulting season.

NUTRI•POWER

NUTRI•POWER IS A BALANCED, EASILY DIGESTIBLE NUTRITIONAL

SUPPLEMENT WITH A HIGH ENERGETIC VALUE.

IT CONTAINS THE RIGHT MIX OF PROTEINS, FATS,

CARBOHYDRATES, VITAMINS, MINERALS AND TRACE ELEMENTS.

4

1,5 kg - 3,5 kg


The carefully, balanced composition of Nutri-Power makes it particularly

suitable for bringing racing pigeons in condition.

The easily digestible character of the product not only accelerates recovery

after physical exercise, it also provides the pigeon fancier with another benefit.

It is a food supplement that has to be fed to pigeons according

to the instructions below.

First of all we must point out that pigeons that were never fed a granulated

feed may not immediately accept Nutri-Power.

However, if they have tasted this granulated feed once your pigeons

will eat it with great pleasure afterwards.

We advise feed the pigeons less one day before the first time

they are fed with Nutri-Power.

• DIRECTIONS OF USE

During the racing season:

1. Speed races (up to 250 km)

Feed on the day of arrival and the 2 following days:

4g (1 measuring spoon) daily with the grain mixture.

2. Middle distance (250 km to 400 km)

4g daily together with the grain mixture.

3. Long Middle distance (400 km to 600 km)

a) If you basket weekly (e.g. hens):

feed 4g daily with the grain mixture.

b) If you basket every 2 weeks (usual for widowers) feed 4g daily:

with the grain mixture, except if their loft-partners are basketed.

4. Long Distance (600 km to 800 km)

• Feed from 2 weeks before the first long distance race:

feed 4g daily with the grain mixture.

• Feed the day of arrival and the 2 next days:

feed daily 4g with the grain mixture.

• As a preparation for the next long distance races: the five

last days before basketing feed 4g daily with the grain mixture.

5. Extra Long Distance (from 800 km)

Same as for long distance pigeons (see under 4).

6. Programme pigeons (200 km to 600 km)

Same method as for long middle distance pigeons (see under 3).

Other uses:

breeding, weaned young birds, sickness, exhaustion and serious loss of weight.

The NATURAL PLANT at SCHOTEN

This plant exclusively produces grain mixtures for

racing pigeons shipped to the four corners of the world.

M

INERALS

Pigeons mainly eat grains. It has been scientifically proven that minerals

are essential elements for the organism.

If macro-elements are required in large amounts, small amounts

of trace elements are no less essential.

Amongst the macro-elements are calcium, phosphorous, potassium,

sodium, chlorine, sulphur and magnesium.

Trace elements include manganese, iodine, zinc, cobalt, iron and copper.

Calcium and phosphorous represent three-quarters of the minerals found

in the pigeon’s organism. In addition to their role in the skeleton, calcium

and phosphorous perform critical physiological functions such as muscular

contraction, nervous conduction, blood coagulation, regulation of osmotic

and ionic equilibria and chemical reactions that generate energy.

It should also be noted that 97% of the shell of the pigeon egg

consists of calcium.

The organism’s needs are thus highly variable and crucially important.

Grains are poor in calcium. Pigeons need supplementary minerals.

Nutritional deficiencies manifesting themselves, for example,

in the deviation of the breast-bone by young pigeons.

The shell of the eggs produced by poorly fed pigeons are

frequently malformed.

Vitamineral, Picking Stone, Pickpot, Grit and Red Stone

will see to it that your pigeons get all the necessary minerals.

VITAMINERAL

8

600 g

VITAMINISED MINERALS


Natural launched Vitamineral in 1952.

By doing so Natural became the first company to produce

a special vitaminised mineral mix for racing pigeons.

Vitamineral won the confidence of Belgian pigeon fanciers in no time

as it meant a breakthrough in the feeding habits of the racing pigeon.

Natural has constantly improved the composition of Vitamineral.

Vitamineral contains all the minerals necessary for a balanced diet.

In addition to essential minerals, Vitamineral contains vitamins A, D and E,

which are required for the assimilation of these minerals. These vitamins

have a positive influence on the growth of the youngsters and the fertility.

Vitamineral is a product that pigeons need all year round.

Vitamineral should therefore always be present in the pigeon loft.

The pigeons will only eat it out of real physiological need.

There will be marked consumption when they return from a race and

during breeding and moulting. The breeders ingest up to 650 mg

of calcium per day when they nourish their youngsters.

Vitamineral accelerates the pigeons growth and enhances their resistance.

•DIRECTIONS

Always leave some Vitamineral in a small gallipot the pigeons

have easy access to.

PICKING STONE

10

620 g

BRINGS THE FIELD

TO THE PIGEON LOFT


Natural Picking Stone consists of a dozen of natural ingredients. It contains clay,

seaweed, magnesium, grit, redstone, oyster shells, stomach grit, charcoal, etc.

Natural Picking Stone offers an important supplement of natural minerals

and oligo-elements. Natural Picking Stone does not contain any appetite

stimulating substances and meets a natural habit of the pigeon.

The pigeons will only pick on it when they really feel a need, e.g.

during the breeding season, after a race or during the moulting season.

In the course of the years Natural Picking Stone has turned into a the standard

reference for the racing pigeon’s feed. It is sold in over 40 countries.

Over a quarter of a million pigeon fanciers feed Natural Picking Stone

to their pigeons.

It is by far the most popular picking stone for racing pigeons in the world.

Natural Picking Stones are freshly made every week and an essential element

in the modern racing pigeon’s feed.

•DIRECTIONS

This product should be made available to pigeons during the whole year.

PIKPOT

400 g

BRINGS THE FIELD

TO THE PIGEON LOFT


The Natural Pikpot contains roughly the same ingredients

as the famous Natural Picking Stone.

The fancier who prefers a concentrated picking stone packed

in an earthenware jar will be delighted with the Natural Pikpot.

Like the Natural Picking Stone. The Natural Pikpot guarantees

an important contribution of minerals and trace elements.

The Natural Pikpot is made from natural products, without added

appetite-enhancing substances.

•DIRECTIONS

This product should be made available to pigeons during the whole year.

HI-CALCIUM

GRIT

14

2,5 kg

MIXTURE OF SILEX

RED STONE AND

OYSTER SHELLS


Natural Grit is a mixture of silex, red stone and oyster shells.

It does not contain any appetite-enhancing substances.

The various components are essential for an optimum digestion

and to increase the effectiveness of the grinding of the grains in

the gizzard so that all nourishing substances can be perfectly assimilated.

The red brick particles and shell fragments provide the necessary

minerals and trace-elements.

The Natural Grit is heated to over 200°C to eliminate

all harmful micro-organisms.

•DIRECTIONS

Make sure that the Natural Grit is always available at the loft

so that the pigeons can help themselves according to their needs.

15

25 kg


REDSTONE

16

2,5 kg - 25 kg

RICH IN MINERALS

AND TRACE-ELEMENTS


The Natural Redstone is made of clay fired at very high temperatures

(over 1.000°C) in a special furnace, before being ground.

Redstone is also one of the ingredients of the Natural Grit which

consists of oyster shells, silex and red stone.

The Natural Redstone is rich in minerals and trace elements

and pigeons just love picking on it.

Before and after laying hens are in urgent need for it.

The Natural Redstone is a 100% natural product and does not contain

any appetite-enhancing substances.

17


THE NATURAL BREEDING STATION

Was established in 1955 and gradually developed into

a large pigeon village at the service of pigeon racing.

The Breeding Station houses over 14.000 pigeons.

It is also a unique testing ground.

Every complementary product marketed

by Natural Grains is thoroughly tested

at the Breeding Station.

18


V

ITAMINS

Vitamins are organic substances indispensable to racing pigeons at minute doses.

The pigeon’s organism is not always capable of synthesizing them.

When feeding is unbalanced, avitaminosis, i.e. deficiency of one

or several vitamins, may occur.

The life conditions of the pigeon do not always provide a balanced source

of vitamins and avitaminoses may be observed and cause disorders and lesions.

In that case, avitaminosis manifest itselfs by well-defined signs such as growth

disturbances, diminished fertility, diminished resistance to disease and

a less than optimum racing performance.

Vitamin requirements depend on a number of factors that vary with

the time of the season.

Thus the stress induced by competition, breeding, disease, moulting, etc.

increases the demand and is liable to induce avitaminosis.

19


NATURAVIT PLUS

20

250 ml - 500 ml

A MULTI-VITAMIN

LIQUID COMPLEX


The composition of Naturavit Plus, being based on the most recent scientific

research, guarantees that the pigeon will receive a balanced supply of

the entire range of vitamins, including the following, essential ones:

• vitamin B1, which permits the degradation of fatty acids and carbohydrates.

The heightened metabolism of the pigeon, particularly during the

racing season, highlights the enormous importance of this vitamin.

• vitamin D, which plays an important part in the regulation

of the phosphocalcium metabolism.

This vitamin is necessary in the formation of the skeleton.

• vitamin A, is essential for the growth of young pigeons and

has anti-infectious and anti-parasitic effect.

• vitamin E, which is indispensable to optimal muscle and

nerve function with a positive influence on fertility.

• vitamin K, is anti-haemorrhagic. The diet of pigeons kept

in aviaries should be enriched with this vitamin.

Naturavit Plus is wholly soluble in water and pleasant-tasting.

Naturavit Plus allows a rapid and complete absorption of vitamins by

the pigeon. Regular administration of Naturavit Plus protects the pigeon

against avitaminosis and will result in maximum racing performances.

Naturavit Plus is a multi-vitamin complex of outstanding quality and stability.

It is manufactured and guaranteed by “DSM”.

•DIRECTIONS

DURING THE BREEDING AND MOULTING SEASON

One measure of Naturavit Plus per 2 litres of drinking water

during 1 day per week.

DURING THE RACING SEASON

One measure of Naturavit Plus per litre of drinking water,

preferably two days before the day of basketing.

After a difficult flight it is advisable to mix one measure

of Naturavit Plus per litre of drinking water, the day after

the pigeons returned.

AFTER ANY TREATMENT OF A DISEASE

After any treatment it is important to administer vitamins

to the pigeons for three days.

In this case one measure of Naturavit Plus must be given

per litre of drinking water.

21


VITAMINOR

BREWER’S YEAST

A 100% NATURAL PRODUCT,

RICH IN AMINO ACIDS

AND B-VITAMINS

22

350 g - 850 g


Vitaminor is a brewer’s yeast grown on wort, grains and sugar derivatives.

The raw material is only obtained from breweries. It is dried thoroughly and

prepared with great care for detail without the addition of any chemical agents.

It fully preserves the nutritional qualities of each of its natural constituents.

It is a 100% natural product rich in amino-acids, vitamins and organic mineral

elements that are completely assimilated by the pigeon’s organism.

Vitaminor provides a complex of natural B-vitamins, which are important for

the metabolism of sugars, proteins and fats and therefore in the physiology

of the racing effort.

B-vitamins have therefore a positive influence on the physical efforts which

the pigeon needs to produce.

Vitaminor is a growth factor in the diet of young pigeons and enhances their

resistance to various diseases and stress.

It is an established fact that Vitaminor brewer’s yeast has a very favourable

effect on the fertility of the breeding pairs and on the vitality of the youngsters.

•DIRECTIONS

DURING THE BREEDING AND MOULTING SEASON

Add Vitaminor brewer’s yeast at least twice weekly to the ration of grain.

BEFORE THE RACING SEASON

10-day diet during which Vitaminor brewer’s yeast is added to the ration

of grain to stimulate the pigeons’ physical condition.

DURING THE RACING SEASON

It is advisable to add Vitaminor brewer’s yeast to the depurative mixture

on the day they return from the race and on the following day to make

sure they recover quickly from the efforts.

AFTER ANY TREATMENT OF A DISEASE

It is also advisable during and after a treatment against trichomonas, worms,

coccidiosis and other infections to give Vitaminor brewer’s yeast.

•DOSAGE

Mix a generous dessert-spoonful of Vitaminor or the quantity in the can lid

with 1 kg of grains.

For optimum results moisten the grains with garlic oil, or lemon juice or

water to ensure a better adherence of Vitaminor to the grains.

23


ELECTROLIT

A MIXTURE OF ELECTROLYTES

AND GLUCOSE FOR RAPID

RECOVERY AFTER A FLIGHT

24

240 g= 12 x 20 g


The heightened metabolism and substantial exertion of the pigeon in flight

result in numerous waste products. In the elimination of urea, uric and

phosphoric acid, lactic and carbonic acid, mainly sodium ions are consumed

and elimination is therefore dependent on the quantity of these ions available

to the pigeon. Water loss is also appreciable during flight.

For all these reasons it is important to give pigeons Natural Electrolit

on their return from a race.

This energy-drink effectively compensates water and electrolyte depletion

and progressively restores the acid-base equilibrium. It also represents an

immediate energy gain (glucose), which markedly shortens the recovery period.

Diseases such as adenovirosis and paramyxovirosis cause diarrhoea resulting in

a major loss of minerals and water loss. Natural Electrolit prevents dehydration

caused by diarrhoea and accelerates the recovery from a disease.

•DIRECTIONS

ON THE RETURN OF A RACE

Mix Natural Electrolit in the drinking water and leave it

at their disposal until after the evening meal.

THE DAY OF BASKETING

The pigeons that take part in long-distance and very long

distance races are under way for several days and nights.

It is essential that these pigeons are basketed with sufficient reserves

of electrolytes (body minerals). This is why we advise to mix

Natural Electrolit to the drinking water on the day of basketing.

IN CASE OF SEVERE, WATERY DIARRHOEA

Administer Natural Electrolit until the droppings return to normal again.

•DOSAGE

240 g packing:

1 bag of Electrolit per litre of drinking water.

750 g packing:

1 measure of Electrolit per litre of drinking water.

Natural Electrolit can also be mixed with

Natural Tea and Naturaline.

25

750 g


Natural Mixtures are the result of over 70 years of experience

in manufacturing grain mixtures for racing pigeons.

Moreover, Natural has been a specialist for over 40 years

now in the field of French Cribs maize and guarantees

a very strong germinative capacity for this maize.

26


NATURAL GUARANTEES…

• the excellent quality of the grains and seeds used

• stringent inspection carried out on the delivered goods

• the silos in which the grains are stored meet

the highest standards of hygiene

• professional know-how and care applied during

composition and production

• regular checks at all stages of production by

experienced pigeon fanciers

The yellow French Cribs maize used by Natural

is dried slowly and naturally and has a very high

degree of germinative power.

Since 1967 Natural has been recommending

the yellow French Cribs maize...

simply because both client and pigeon

benefit from it!

27


Natural is the proud owner

of the GMP-Certificate.

Natural grain mixtures are fed worldwide...

from Belgium to China...

so they are worthy of your confidence too!

28


P

LANTS

Since time immemorial plants have been used to cure and preserve

the health of both humans and animals. Pigeon fanciers have also applied

themselves to improve the health and condition of their pigeons by

administering teas and plant infusions.

The management of Natural has always been interested in phytotherapy.

Numerous tests carried out in the course of several years have contributed

to the elaboration of three Natural complementary products.

NATURALINE

concentrated extract of fifteen different kinds of vegetables and plants.

NATURAL TEA

a blend of 16 expertly selected plants mixed in the right proportions.

NATURAL GARLIC OIL

composed of pure garlic oil extracts, refined soya oil and vitamin-E.

29


NATURALINE

30

1 liter

CONCENTRATED GREENS

AND PLANT EXTRACT


Naturaline is a concentrated extract concocted from some fifteen varieties

of selected plants and greens. Naturaline also contains Echinazea extracts

that enhance the general resistance of the pigeon.

In addition to its active ingredients, this extract contains many other substances

that appear to contribute to the specific action of the treatments since they

can accelerate or slow up their assimilation by the digestive system.

Naturaline keeps pH-values naturally at the proper level.

The component plants and greens of Naturaline have been carefully selected

for their beneficial effects on the respiratory, digestive and urinary tracts.

That is why pigeons that regularly receive Naturaline in their drinking water

present a rosy skin, indicating that their blood is pure and free from toxins.

Their plumage becomes glossy and displays a unique rich, creamy smoothness.

Moreover, the pigmentation and lustre of the eye are heightened.

These external signs reflect an optimal health, which enables the pigeons

to better resist disease and improve their performance.

•DIRECTIONS

The use of Naturaline is particularly advisable during the racing season,

the moulting season and in case of watery droppings caused by

adenovirosis and paramyxovirosis.

DURING THE RACING SEASON

During a 10-day diet Naturaline is mixed with the drinking water

at the beginning of the racing season. After this, twice weekly after

the birds return home from a race.

DURING THE MOULTING SEASON

One or two days per week.

IN CASE OF WATERY DIARRHOEA

Caused by adenovirosis and paramyxovirosis:

mix Naturaline daily with the drinking water as long as the symptoms persist.

RECENTLY WEANED YOUNG BIRDS

Mix Naturaline to the drinking water for ten days.

•DOSAGE

One to two dessert-spoons of Naturaline per litre of drinking water.

31


32

TEA

300 gr

A BLEND OF 16 HERBS


Extensive research has led to the conclusion that Natural Tea facilitates the

conditioning of pigeons in a wholly natural manner during the racing season.

It even enhances that condition.

Natural Tea also ensures rapid recovery after an effort.

•DIRECTIONS

BEFORE THE RACING SEASON

To enhance the pigeons’ condition, give them tea daily 8 to 10 days before

the first race. After this treatment, their plumage will be silkier and the

pigeons will swell yet become lighter - a sign of optimum blood irrigation.

DURING THE RACING SEASON

On their return from a race, give the pigeons tea. If the pigeons have flown

for many hours in hot weather, then we should give the pigeons Natural Tea

to which Electrolit has been added in order to compensate for the loss of

minerals. Tea alone can still be given as a drink on the day if pigeon returns

from a race purification of the organism is desirable.

DURING THE MOULTING PERIOD

The pigeon must cope with a substantial energy demand and top condition

is crucial to a perfect moult. Tea, given 1-2 days per week during this period,

facilitates the optimal regeneration of the plumage.

•DOSAGE

One generous dessert-spoonful of Natural Tea per litre of boiling water.

Allow to infuse for 10 minutes with the lid on the pot.

Filter, allow to cool and give to the pigeons as a drink.

33


GARLIC OIL

FOR IMPROVED CONDITION

AND HEALTH OF THE RACING PIGEON

34

150 ml - 450 ml


Garlic is a plant that has been known and used for thousands of years

for its exceptional curative properties. It stimulates gastric secretion

and prevents fermentation and digestive disorders.

What is more, it improves the blood circulation and affords protection

of the air ways and protection against worms.

Most pigeon fanciers are familiar with the therapeutic action of garlic

and many are having their pigeons benefit from it. It is for this reason that

some of them routinely put a clove of garlic in the pigeon’s drinking water.

This method is not effective as the virtues of the plant are essentially lost

on the bird.

Natural, the leading pigeon feed specialist, has had dieticians and

veterinary surgeons study and solve this problem.

Hence, the development of Natural Garlic Oil.

Natural Garlic Oil is a product in a class of its own giving pigeons

the full benefit of garlic.

Natural garlic oil is composed of pure garlic extracts and refined soya oil,

rich in linolenic and linoleic acid.

Natural garlic oil also contains vitamins E that have a favourable effect on the

fertility of the pigeons and are essential to obtain properly functioning muscles

and nervous system in order to enhance the pigeon’s condition and health.

•DIRECTIONS

DURING THE BREEDING AND MOULTING SEASON

Mix Natural Garlic Oil and Vitaminor Brewer’s Yeast twice or three times

per week with the daily ration of grains - 30 drops of Garlic Oil per kilo

of grains.

DURING THE RACING SEASON

Mix Natural Garlic Oil and Vitaminor Brewer’s Yeast with a depurative

or diet mix on the day of the return from a race and the following day.

30 drops of Garlic Oil per kg of grains.

AS A PREPARATION BEFORE A LONG DISTANCE RACE

The soya oil in the Natural Garlic Oil is the ideal substance to accumulate

fat reserves in the pigeon’s body.

We advise: 4 to 6 days before basketing (depending on the distance)

one drop of garlic oil per pigeon, to be mixed with the daily grain ration,

adding Vitaminor brewer’s yeast .

35


SMALL SEEDS

A MIXTURE OF PLATE MILLET

LINSEED, RAPESEED, CLIPPED OATS

RICE, HEMPSEED AND CANARY SEED

36

1 kg


Some pigeon fanciers claim that small seeds overstimulate pigeons and therefore

tend to shorten the period in which they remain in top form for races.

We are convinced, on the contrary, that small seeds, when given in moderation,

play a role in safeguarding their form since they constitute an energizing nutrient

supplement capable of developing form in several respects.

If after their morning and evening training sessions, the widowers discover

a pinch of small seeds in their nest box, they will develop the habit of

returning more rapidly.

•DIRECTIONS

A small tea-spoonful of small seeds per day per pigeon during the racing

season will enhance the condition of the pigeons and their resistance

to temperature variations.

37


NATURADROPS

FOR NASAL AND EYE HYGIENE

• A clear, isotonic aqueous solution containing chlorhexidine gluconate.

• Eliminates after 10 minutes and at room temperature all Gram+

and Gram- bacteria.

• Strong desinfectant.

• Ideal to check the respiratory organs.

• One drop in each eye and each nostril at the time of basketing

and upon returning from a race.

38


H

YGIENE PRODUCTS

Through the years Natural has developed a number of hygiene products that

contribute considerably to increased hygiene in the loft and of the pigeon.

39


NATURAL SPRAY

AN EFFICIENT REMEDY

AGAINST EXTERNAL PARASITES

40

600 ml


The Natural Spray is a very efficient product against external

parasites and all other vermin.

It can also be used for pigeon lofts, baskets and transporters.

It is completely innocuous for pigeons and they do not even have

to be removed for the loft while it is being treated.

The pigeons can also be individually treated without any risk

by spraying them under the wings.

Natural spray contains no CFK’s.

•DIRECTIONS

DURING THE RACING SEASON

Slightly spray underneath the wings of pigeons that are going to be basketed.

By doing so you offer them an efficient and guaranteed protection against

parasites during transport.

Regularly spray baskets and all corners and cracks of the loft.

DURING ANNUAL CLEANING AFTER THE MOULT

Slightly spray the corners and cracks of the loft as it is mainly here that

ticks, red mites and other external parasites hide.

NOT AVAILABLE IN THE U.K.

41


BATH SALT

42

650 ml

FOR IMPROVED HYGIENE

OF THE FEATHERS


Natural Bath Salt is a high quality product aimed at satisfying the most

demanding pigeon fancier.

The raw materials used in its production are the same as those used in bath

salts for human consumption.There will not be any blue or yellow tingeing,

as no chemical colouring is used in its composition and only natural pine

extracts are used.

Natural Bath Salt gives a soft, smooth plumage and rids the epidermis

of any flakiness (dandruff) without irritating the skin.

It tones up and stimulates the organism when administered in a cold bath.

However, it relaxes the muscles and accelerates the recovery process

at the return of races if the bath is warm.

It is thus the ideal product for pigeon fanciers used to give their pigeons

a warm bath when they return from races.

Its natural disinfecting action provides a good body hygiene and rids

the plumage of vermin.

We therefore recommend you add Natural Bath Salt to the bath water

once or twice a month during moulting as it is important for the growth

of new feathers not be disturbed by parasites. This is particularly important

during the moulting period as the tonic effect of the Natural Bath Salt

stimulates blood circulation and helps the moulting of the down-feathers.

Natural Bath Salt efficiently contributes to the health of the new plumage.

During the racing season, the regular use of Natural Bath Salt will keep the

feathers glossy and smooth. At their return from a difficult race we recommend

you add the contents of half a lid of Natural Bath Salt to a bucket filled with

warm water and immerse the pigeons one by one for one minute while lightly

massaging their pectoral muscles.

•DOSAGE

One capful of Natural Bath Salt for 20 litres of bathing water.

43


GRANULATED FLOORCOVERING

ANTI-COCCIDIOSIS

44

20 kg

FOR IMPROVED HYGIENE

IN THE LOFT


For the pigeon fanciers with only a limited amount of time to spend

on their loft, the Natural granulated floorcovering is the ideal help.

The Natural granulated floorcovering is a natural product of consisting

of lava drawn from the subsoil.

The treatment and the granulation of this particularly porous substance

offer it an exceptional absorbing power:

1 kg of granules can easily absorb 1 litre of water.

Thanks to this the Natural granulated floorcovering guarantees perfect

hygiene in the loft. When the pigeon’s droppings fall on the granules,

they dry in no time, which stops the contamination cycle by parasites.

The use of Natural granulated floorcovering practically stops maturation

of the oocysts of coccidiosis and of the eggs of the ascarids.

Moreover, the granules absorb the smell of the droppings.

When small birds eject liquid droppings, some granules can be strewn

around the nestbowls to absorb the humidity and the odours.

The Natural granulated floorcovering also offers good insulation against the cold.

It will considerably increase the pigeon’s comfort which is reflected in

improved performances.

The granulated floorcovering maintains its absorbing capacity for

a very long time, which makes it economic to use.

It can stay in the loft for one year provided it is raked weekly.

When the granules and droppings are removed from the loft they can

be used as an excellent fertilizer in the vegetable and flower garden.

The Natural granulated floorcovering is harmless to pigeons.

It is the ideal formula to keep your loft dry and clean.

Young birds love to lay down in Natural Floor granulated floorcovering.

Their droppings dry quickly and their feet are always clean.

Natural granulated floorcovering - a bag of 20 kg covers 1,5 m 2 .

45


LOFT WHITE

AN EFFICIENT, USEFUL AND PRACTICAL

CLEANING PRODUCT FOR PIGEON LOFTS

46

2,5 kg


It is a powerful absorbent and disinfectant made of finely ground chalk.

Simply dust some Natural Loft White on the spots with damp droppings
