Chisholm Trail supplements are a proprietary blended unit of numerous ingredients from around the world each ingredient having its own specific property and duty in regard to the overall health of the pigeon. Many of the ingredients are derived from herbs, plants and plant root extracts which the birds cannot forage for themselves. These ingredients can not be purchased at your local feed store or health food store. Our formula addresses numerous specific areas of concern for the show and performance bird. There are ingredients which coat the intestinal lining and act as a prophylactic toward pathogens like E-coli and Salmonella which would attach to the intestinal wall and eventually debilitate or kill the bird. Another area we have addressed is reproduction. There are ingredients which are vital in the health and formation of the sperm cell, a healthy oviduct, and yolk sac nutrition. ( Many youngsters die from a lack of yolk sac nutrition before the parents can start their milk ) We’ve addressed your birds health needs by adding an ingredient which binds ammonia up to 75%. Ammonia is the culprit when it comes to respiratory infections. ( other than mechanical ) Ammonia cuts through the mucous membrane and allows pathogen and virus penetration. More oxygen means more cellular respiration, which means robust youngsters.We’ve added enzymes which break down the food for better utilization and economy.Other ingredients bind molds and mildew which affect the liver.
