Depurative


I keep reading about feeding a depurative. Can someone give me an example?

Depurative feed is high in fat. This is why you see many European lofts feeding it after their birds come home from a race. In American we tend to think it is fed to break the birds down before building them back up with racing feed and this is just not the case.

Feeding is an art!

Call Heritage acres, They will tell you why, their are the experts. I always feed the same except for the day of shipping. I've tryed their product and the quality is second to none but my resultes were less than I could get with the few grains I can get right here in Spoonert WI, at half the price.

is this a pellet or grains? some pellet has a toxin binder. grains alone cannot clear toxin.

I use a product called Muscle-up DMG 2000 for dogs to clear the lactic acid build up. It cost $14.95 for a jug and will last a season of OB or YB

its easier to just think of it as low in protein contaent and high in fat content. most depuritive mixs that I've come across leave out peas. which is fine for me since I dont like feeding them to the birds anyway.
