Hi to all,

I have one question about "black velvet" . It's a color , line of pigeon or just a name of pigeon. Somebody asking about it and can't find the right answer. :?:

It is definitely the name of a pigeon,,a Hardy Kruger pigeon...but it could be used to describe a color...so many people use so many different terms...
Enjoy the friendship and the pigeons!

Moulting. Talking with some UK guys online. High protein for the moult, peas and beans. My birds hate peas. Never seen a bean. Think oil seeds and other additives will do a better job. Safflower peanuts etc,. Instead of expensive moulting mixes. Seem to be in the minority there. Oh well each to their own.

I agree, Hal. One can also increase the variety by using oil seeds and not run into the anti-trypsin problems of beans and peas.
