Long distance

The preparation for a long distance flight normally begins approx. 10-14 days before the pigeons are put into the race basket. The animals must be absolutely 100 % well. Therefore the pigeons receive a body wash with metro against trichomoniasis approx. 10 days before being put into the racing basket and after every long-distance flight. Depending on the training behaviour, a light antibiotic can be used for 3 days for the respiratory passages.

The provision in the final week looks somewhat like the following:
