How did you get into pigeon racing?

Since 1975 around the age of 14 was when I first got interested, I used to help letting out pigeons and help with cleaning lofts and then gradually got into pigeon racing from that.

What have been your biggest achievements to date?

Many! But here are a few main ones: Double Midlands national champion, (most pigeon fanciers are lucky to win a national championship once in a lifetime).  Won a few federations (collections of different clubs).  Super club Tuerlings challenge race from Lessay 1st open against 60 of the top flyers in West Midlands.  Dew drop 1 bird open from Nantes again 50 of the top West Midlands flyers. 1st open also winning FED.

How has Meditech helped you achieve success?

I have been using Meditech products since the early 80’s and have known Mr Samrai from before this, he has always been willing to listen and tries to sort out your pigeon problems.  With good pigeons and the help of Meditech’s products the above achievements have been accomplished. Meditech products I use are: 4 in 1 capsules and 4 in one liquid.  Enhanced multi-vitamins and aqueous iodine.

What top tips can you can you give us?

Keep the loft clean, eliminate damp patches.  Treat regularly for Cocci, Canker, Worms & MItes.  Test droppings at the start and end of the racing pigeon season.
