when fat grains of seed are being fed it should be in moderation along with a high carbohydrate of grains fed as well

Fats are the most important source of energy for a pigeon imo, I would happily feed no carbs for a race, but I'd never send a pigeon without feeding plenty of fats regardless the distance. For me fat loading starts Monday evening, but the full effect kicks in from Tuesday

Although a old post
Be interested to see how you judge what's required against what fat will be unused and just a dead weight on the bird
Thanks

I’ll be honest I do not judge it they get the same feed every single week. Put it on another perspective is that the way I feed or fed is similar to an athlete on a no carb diet. What happens is and those that will have tried it will know is that for about two days u feel rubbish as the body is craving carbs. However once the body knows no carbs or little carbs will only be supplied the body realises fats will be its only energy source.

Very interesting Ryan
What kind of amounts would you feed of the fat based feed in the ration from say Tuesday for sprinting looking at your reply I guess it would be 100 per cent by Wednesday ? If so I guess it would have to measured

Ok Wiley,so are you advocating a racing mixture thats high in fats to make up the 3/4 top up or is it a certain seed and if so what seeds contain lots of fats ,if it is peanuts they are rather expensive are there other options,cheers
