Fabio van Olst

… a busy fancier

 

By invitation of the Board of the Ma­ga­zi­ne Avi­cul­ture-Eu­rope, Fabio van Olst has re­cent­ly agreed to join the edi­torial team of our ma­ga­zine.

BREEDING AND REARING

LARGE COCHINS

 

I recorded the following story years ago, from the mouth of a very good Cochin bree­der. I think it's still valua­ble, be­cause we know very well that Cochin fan­ciers have to ma­nage a breed which is very diffi­cult to keep in top qua­lity.

DEAD IN SHELL YOUNG

 

With breeding now in full swing I re­cei­ve re­gu­lar calls from fan­ciers that fer­tile eggs are fai­ling to hatch i.e. that the em­bryos these eggs con­tain are dying through the incu­bation time. Let us ha­ve a look at the po­ten­tial pro­blems that can arise with each of these periods of incu­bation in more detail.

a TRIP to CALIFORNIA

CONCERNING POULTRY

~ Chicken feed ~

 

There are many brands of poultry feed offe­ring a com­plete line of chic­ken feed. The pro­gram runs from spe­cial food for chicks to spe­cific feed for la­ying hens, broi­lers, hens, or­na­men­tal fowl, moul­ting chic­kens, etc. The diffe­rence lies in the com­po­sition, the so cal­led recipe of the feed.

Conditions for a successful

Breeding of the Scandaroon

 

The Scandaroon with its unique appea­rance among pi­geons, has many ty­pi­cal breed cha­rac­te­ris­tics in its main fea­tures of head and beak shape, as well as in its ma­jes­tic body struc­ture. These diffi­cult to achieve breed cha­rac­te­ris­tics are to be main­tained and, where nee­ded, to be im­pro­ved by the ef­forts of their bree­ders and in­vol­ved breed spe­cialty clubs.

BEAUTIES AT THE

Deltashow

 

The Deltashow is the largest in the pro­vince of Zee­land, cer­tain­ly with regard to the pigeons, which com­pete each year for the Zee­land Cham­pion­ship. follo­wing is my report with a con­cise des­crip­tion of each breed. I must em­pha­size that this des­crip­tion is of the pi­geons as I saw them; my own point of view. The last thing I want is to stand in the shoes of a judge.
