Basic Nutrition Applies to Pigeons Too!
All animals require Protein, Carbohydrates, Fats, Vitamins, Macro Minerals, Trace Minerals, and Water. The percentages and amounts of these nutrients vary with different species and also different stages of life – Infancy, Growth, Adult Maintenance.
Other factors effect nutrient requirements such as Breeding, Shipping, Molting, or Racing.
Nutrient levels, as featured in Purgrain feeds, must be increased as demands increase or full genetic potential will never be achieved.
Whole grain feeds are the staple diet of pigeons. These grains consist of corn, wheat, red milo, white milo, maple peas, Canada peas, vetch, buckwheat, safflower and many others. While whole grains are a natural feeds and could supply enough protein, carbohydrates and fat, they fall short of necessary vitamins, macro and micro nutrients.
When stressed during racing, training, breeding, showing or transporting, birds require more nutrition. Supplementation is necessary in order to provide the bird with complete nutrition. YOU WILL NOT ACHIEVE THE FULL GENETIC POTENTIAL of your birds unless all of their nutrient requirements are met. You can not meet all of your birds requirements on a 100% grain diet.
Purgrain Advantage was developed to be fed as a supplement to a whole grain diet. Advantage provides more methionine (a very essential amino acid for feathering), plus excellent sources of Protein, Fat, Carbohydrates, Vitamins, Minerals and Trace Minerals.
Purgrain Advantage was designed and formulated for performance birds – no fillers, no poorly digested ingredients, no skimping on vitamins, minerals, or trace minerals. We have even added several health enhancing ingredients to the formula.
You have spent a lot of time, effort, and money on your birds. You want them to reach their maximum level
