  Why are vitamins, minerals, herbal teas, and elixirs important to the pigeons?

Many fanciers overlook the importance of supplementing the diet of performance birds with these products, but the truth is, they may be the most important thing that a fancier can give to his pigeons, providing they are already in good health.

Supplements such as these, if given prudently, can add to a birdís performance in the races, in the shows, and also as a breeder. Since our birds are kept in an unnatural environment, and they cannot receive all of the necessary vitamins and trace elements or minerals that they need from grain alone, it is extremely important that proper and timely supplements be given. In Europe, supplements are an important part of the program, on a weekly basis, all year long, and their birds are almost always in shining health.

For information on a variety of vitamins, minerals, herbal teas, and elixirs, see these section of the Siegelís catalog.
