Last weekend we tried the Salmonella (Paratyphoid) home test kit for the first time. It’s really easy to use and you have a result in 10 minutes.
We did a combined sample test on our loft and it came out negative (phew…! 🙂 ). Doing this regularly will help to minimise “shooting in the dark”. It’s better to know what’s wrong and treat accordingly.
The kits are available locally from Medpet and it’s very economical.

Various top birds on auction. Triple J lofts, Hardy Krueger (on R40 000 plus already) etc.
Top local blood also on auction. Like my pick below… she made my “Super” list a while ago. Not often you get this quality in the market. She scored in the union as follows: 2, 4, 5, 11, 14, 18, 34, 36, 47, 66, 69
Cock on the left is a SUMO – full brother GPU hen – he raced exceptionally well on the middle distance races and ended best bird club and union middle distance.
The hen is a Tom Lock / Putterie / Clausing that raced superbly on the long distance races. We stopped racing her when she was still in the top 3 best birds union long distance due to the risk of losing her – not worth it. She finished as 6th best long distance pigeon in the union.
