The Pigeon Guide: Practical Breeding, Training, and Management: by Dr. Jon Esposito (Author) & Shannon Hiatt (Author) with introduction by Stephen J. Bodio

A definite reference guide for Pigeon fanciers. This Gloss-Colored page book describes the methods of one of America's great flyers and breeders of racing pigeons. It covers young birds, medication, feeding, selection and pairing, preparation for the specials, management of old birds, selection theories, polygamous and rotational breeding, inbreeding, material products, nutrition and feeding, immune system stimulation, the secret asset, wings, loft equipment & accessories and the list goes on and on.
While there are many pigeon books available to American pigeon fanciers, reviewers have declared The Pigeon Guide to be one of the most up-to-date and comprehensive works available. This book includes information about breeding systems and genetics, nutrition, loft systems and equipment, showing, racing, and much more. Of particular interest to fanciers is information about the general health and well being of their flocks, preventive health measures, recognition of diseases, and disease treatment.

This book contains black and white drawings and color photos throughout with an Introduction by noted hawker Stephen Bodio. Includes index and appendix, with chapters on housing, breeding, feeding and more.

This book that I have published makes a wonderful gift and is available for immediate delivery. Every copy ordered will be signed by the publisher Silvio Mattacchione.
