Pigeons / Birds

EM is a new and healthy method of achieving top condition and maintaining it for pigeons. Improve their environment by making up a rich fertliser from their droppings with Actiferm and Edasil clay minerals.


Dilute Actiferm to a solution of 10 ml to 1 litre water.

Add this solution to the pigeon drinking water.

Dilute 10 ml to 1 litre water and spray this in the loft.

EM in farming of pigeons and ornamental poultry

Actiferm for pigeons is a complementary feeding stuff containing Effective Micro-organisms®. It is a blend of micro-organisms with regenerative properties. Use of Actiferm for pigeons improves natural immunity and general welfare, and ensures significant and long-lasting fitness of pigeons and other birds. The product may be used in breeding and rearing pigeons and ornamental poultry.

EM Probiotic Actiferm for pigeons may be administered with water or in feed. Effective Micro-organisms® found in the product influence the functioning of the alimentary tract, stimulate natural bird immunity, improve their fitness and welfare. Numerous enzymes produced by bacteria enhance feed digestibility and lead to better assimilation of feed ingredients. Lactic acid bacteria contained in the product produce the lactic acid that acidifies the environment of bird’s alimentary tract, protecting it against pathogens.

Actiferm for pigeons may be used in spraying dovecots and aviaries. This procedure is intended to populate the environment with beneficial micro-organisms forming a barrier for the development of pathogenic microflora. Lowering pH of the environment (due to presence of the lactic acid) is aimed at producing adverse conditions for multiplication of bacteria from the genera Escherichia Coli and Salmonella. This is a biological disinfection method which may be used in the presence of birds. By adding the product to water used for bathing the birds, water gets acidified preventing growth of pathogens, and making the water ready to be used for a longer period of time. Additionally, such solution is a very good cleaning agent that soothes epidermal injuries and accelerates healing.

Benefits from using Actiferm for pigeons:

  • reduced diarrhoea incidence (especially in baby pigeons when paste food is changed into seeds)
  • improved hatching
  • population of the alimentary tract after antibiotic treatment
  • neutralisation of mycotoxins in the feed
  • decontamination of the body and accelerated liver regeneration
  • elimination of unpleasant odours in the dovecot or aviary
  • biological disinfection of the environment and reduced mite population
