    John was talking about preparing for breeding, the reason he medicates his breeders is to make sure they are going to into the stressful breeding season with a clean bill of health, if they are already fighting something this will take care of it. And just because the belgiums have been racing longer does not make them the best, that is just your opinion. John has won more than his fair share races also, but you dont see him on there beating his chest saying hey look at me. He is just trying to help us beginners get off to a good start and keep it that way.

    Hi John, I live in Honduras, Central America. Our weather is basically the same all year round. Six months of rain and no rain for another six months, temperature is about 80 degrees F.
    A few questions:
    1. How can one define a breeding season
    2. How do you give the cedar vinegar, mix with the grains or in the water. What proportions.
    3. What kind of charcoal do you use. I can get vegetable charcoal or the one that is use in aquarium filters.
    Thanks for your help.

    John- you raise critical points such as the importance of good nutrition and being obsessive about not transferring parasites, bacteria, viruses and protozoals from one population to another especially on the soles of one’s shoes (though not a fan of the rather gay-looking blue clog things). Also agree that all beings are partially protected by a strong immune system resilient due to not having an overly sterile environment (as in allowing dung to build up in breeder loft). I like your promotion of charcoal with fresh varied grits! Dryness, good ventilation and minimizing overcrowding are other important considerations in loft maintenance. V8 is a pasteurized product which destroys its food value as pasteurization kills the vitamins and enzymes available through fresh vegetation. Your vitamin supplements are probably all good but V8 is a messy waste. What pellet feeds do you like to add to your diverse grains? Keep up the good work!

    Dave you have hot days and cool nights. What I would do for young birds is feed a light feed. Buy a commercial conditioning feed, then add 4- 12 oz cans of barley or depuritive, 3- 12 oz cans of safflower, 4 cans of white milo, 3 cans of hemp. As the weather gets cooler you can add 4 cans of small corn. Thats a good light mix and your birds will fly well on it. If you are flying old birds the mix is different. Hope this helps you, John
