Stop Attacks on racing pigeons

How to Stop Predator Bird Attacks on Your Racing Pigeons

As you may have experienced yourself (hopefully not), the numbers of predator bird attacks on pigeons are on the rise. And because of that fanciers are constantly trying to find ways to keep their birds safe from attack.

Well today I want to share with you a method developed by Italian fancier and Veterinarian Adriano Verardi. This method he calls CODICE LIVIA has helped bring the number of attacks on his birds from two killings per week to zero! So, this method is definitely tried and true.

Adriano’s loft was located very close to woodlands and hills which are breeding grounds for peregrines and every other predator species. Like I said before, because of this Adriano’s birds came under attack weekly, especially the young and inexperienced birds.

Adriano’s method is based around the idea of camouflaging his birds to look as if they are predatory birds themselves. He did this by painting a small yellow patch on the tail of his birds with a black line through the middle (nail polish will work just fine, see pictures above for details on how to do this yourself).

As explained by the veterinary himself the yellow /black /yellow patch is the predator’s own colors especially on their tail and feet, so they will hesitate to attack as they will think it is another predator species. Even if they attack seeing this patch will retract the attack and deviate to safety.

The best part about this system is that there is no harm to either the pigeons or predatory birds. Try it for yourself and we hope that it helps, again see pictures above for details on this method.

Nail polish? Does it dry fast, if not the bird will preen his tail and get it all over, mess up the spot… Why does one picture show the spot pink and the others are yellow
