General information

The products of the COLUMBAE range are aimed at feeding granivorous pigeons, especially the different breeds of domestic pigeons. A good part of the products in the range are focused on racing pigeons, although they can perfectly be supplied to other granivorous breeds or species.
These are complete foods that make it possible to obtain optimal results, through an extremely simple dietary management of adult specimens based on complete food, flint grit, calcium grit and water.
The hand feeding formulas (crop milk and follow-on hand feeding) allow the systematization of the artificial rearing of pigeons from birth to emancipation.

Characteristics

The different types of foods in the range are offered in the form of pellets. The granulation does not allow the birds to select the ingredients of the mixture. Each pellet contains all the nutrients that the bird needs and in a balanced way.
The Crop milk is one of the achievements of the R&D work of Psittacus Catalonia and right now it constitutes an unavoidable component in the protocol for hand-rearing pigeons from hatching.
Likewise, the follow-on hand feeding formula makes it possible to complete the hand-rearing process of the chick pigeons.

Advantages of COLUMBAE

The main advantage of COLUMBAE products is that they are complete foods.
This means that they completely cover the nutritional needs of the pigeons and that they can be used as the only food, so feeding management is greatly simplified. In the case of granulated foods, it will only be necessary to put "Silex Grit Coarse" and "Calcium Grit Coarse" also at the disposal of the birds or mixed with the food.
The flint grit is essential for the correct functioning of the gizzard and of the digestive system in general.
The consumption of COLUMBAE foods will quickly result in an improvement in the health and vigor of the birds, as well as in the improvement of the reproductive results.

Our proposal

We recommend replacing traditional seed mixes with our complete foods (supplemented with "Silex Grit Coarse" and "Calcium Grit Coarse"). Select the most suitable food formula for each situation. This will minimize the risk of diseases, the vigor of the birds will increase and reproductive and sporting results will improve.
Likewise, this will greatly simplify the feeding distribution time and the need for periodic nutritional supplements will be eliminated.

The various COLUMBAE pelleted food formulas have been designed for optimal nutrition of adult and juvenile birds. These are complete foods in which each portion contains all the necessary nutrients for the birds for which they are intended. The range includes food for breeding, maintenance, moulting, juveniles and for animals in competition. It is important to select the most suitable diet for each moment. For example, the nutritional requirements of a pigeon during the stage of reproductive rest have little to do with those of another pigeon in the process of molting.
The hand feeding formulas of the COLUMBAE range have been designed for the hand-rearing of pigeons from birth and allow them to achieve the high growth rates that they require for their optimal well-being. In newborn pigeons or those just a few days old, the supply of crop milk is essential. From then on and until emancipation, the "Granivorous Pigeon Hand Feeding" should be supplied.
The products included in this category allow to cover needs that cannot be covered through complete food. This is for example the case of flint sand and calcium grit. Our foods contain adequate levels of calcium to cover their usual needs, but they cannot contain flint sand. In order for the birds to be able to self-regulate and cover their real needs more precisely, it is essential that they have Silex Grit and Calcium Grit permanently at their disposal.
Soft tubes for hand feeding and corn cob bedding are tools that facilitate the work of keepers and improve the well-being of the birds. It is important to select the most suitable soft tube model based on the size of the chick to be fed.
