Visiting Tim Kirschner and the Breeder's Fall Classic

Check out a video shot exclusively with a drone of 400 racing pigeons flying over the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. (More videos and photos will be added to this post as they are ready.) During a trip to the mountains of North Carolina, I stopped in to visit with Tim Kirschner at the Breeder's Fall Classic.  It was a fantastic opportunity to photograph and video some spectacular pigeons. Tim has an equally spectacular view from atop a mountain at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The health of the birds and their eagerness to fly, even in the hot temperatures were impressive. The birds clearly WANTED to fly. They were happy and healthy. Tim is a user of Acidifier Plus...

Kastle Pigeon Customer Testimonial: Steve Simes

Steve Simes lives not too far away from me in Kentucky, so I'm lucky that I get to see him in person every once in a while. Steve has a beautiful loft and even more beautiful birds housed inside. When I started selling the Kastle Pigeon supplements, Steve was one of the first to begin using Acidifier Plus. He sent me this update to let me know how it has been working for him. I'm so happy to hear the great news, Steve! "Approximately three years ago, despite properly medicating, I began to lose several homers each year to what appeared to be Coccidiosis; sadly, in amongst them were some of my most prized birds.     I started using Acidifier...

Introducing our new Young Bird Developer Plus formula with added virus support

Viruses are my biggest fear. Every pigeon breeder should have a good health program to defend against viruses, including vaccinations. But what more can we do? I turned back to Alltech® for a solution, and their Sel-Plex® was the answer. So now we have added that ingredient to a new formula of Young Bird Developer, a product that already created huge immune system and development benefits for our growing pigeon babies, especially when they are exposed to other birds. Selenium is a vital element for all animals and is difficult to uptake in nature. Sel-Plex® is Alltech's proprietary organic form of selenium yeast manufactured to mimic Mother Nature, thus better absorbed, stored and utilized by the animal than inorganic selenium....

Customer Profile: Special Delivery for Leroy Carreira

During a recent trip down I-75, I was fortunate to be able to make a quick stop at the racing pigeon loft and home of Leroy Carreira of Kennesaw, Georgia. Leroy is a customer of Kastle Pigeon and had ordered one of our pails of Breeder Advantage, so why not just deliver it in person? It was a short visit, but I had a great time meeting both Leroy and his pigeons, especially some of the M&D Evans stock (of which I am a known fan). He also has some beautiful specimens from the Dream Boy and Antoine Jacops families. Leroy raced pigeons in Hawaii before moving to Georgia last year and will be soon racing with the North Atlanta Racing Pigeon...
