Supplement for carrier pigeons and cage birds

Information and Directions for Use

Tarsin is an all-rounder”. The same compound for over 15 years. Originally developed to boost lactobacilli. The focus is on obtaining the correct food source for lactobacilli. Tarsin therefore contains select types of vegetables most beneficial for the lactobacilli to settle and grow in the intestines. In this sense Tarsin is a prebiotic nutrient for a lactobacilli-product (for example: Ac-i-prim®). Tarsin combined with Frutin (also referred to as: Fru-tin-fluid®) allows lactobacilli to grow 100 to 1000 more in the small intestines.

As already mentioned, Tarsin is an “all-rounder”. Rich in lecithin and carnitine, which are both required for smooth lipometabolism, providing additional energy.

Tarsin with its valuable protein sources of natural origin also improves the body’s amino acid level.

Tarsin contains a balanced amount of green-lipped mussel. The insider tip for good joint function. Green-lipped mussel contains a high concentration of glycosaminoglycans (or GAGs) of excellent bioavailability. Of course we should also mention omega-3 fatty acids. So the ingredients in green-lipped mussel can boost the development of connective tissue, articular cartilage, and synovial fluid (“joint fluid”).

Tarsin with added vitamin E and selenium is particularly intended to protect fatty substances from free radicals.

As an “all-rounder”, Tarsin of course also contains key trace elements. These both in inorganic and chelate form. It’s now well known that organically bound trace elements can pass through the intestinal wall better than inorganic ones. However, the body needs both binders. We pay close attention to the correct ratio of trace elements. Excess use of individual trace elements (such as iron) will inhibit the absorption of elements vital for the body (e.g. zinc and manganese). It is my scientific opinion that trace elements are often confused with minerals. Not to the benefit of the animal. I therefore do not offer these types of products with an unbalanced content of trace elements.

However, Tarsin goes far beyond the basic idea of a prebiotic effect. The last ten years have shown that, in breeding, it can also promote receptiveness, fertilisation and the growth of the young. Tarsin conditions pigeon for travel and simultaneously promotes an impressive motivation, even in poor travel conditions (headwinds). A memorable quotation from a carrier pigeon breeder who is well respected throughout Germany always comes to mind: “with Tarsin my pigeons can fly to Moscow and back”.


For best results, Tarsin should be bound to the food with Frutin (=Fru-tin-fluid®). Tarsin and Frutin also complement one another in their effect. With the excellent bonding effect of Frutin, you can also mix several days’ worth of feed ahead of time. Tarsin should not only be limited to one meal a day, but also be included in morning and evening feeding. The full effect of Tarsin can unfold particularly well when used along lactobacilli-product (for example: Ac-i-prim®) for 10-14 days from the first feeding on. The lactobacilli germs remains viable on food mixed with Frutin and Tarsin for a long time, even at room temperature.

During the race preparation phase (spring), Tarsin is the ideal addition to Magnesi-a-gold, particularly due to the special properties of green-lipped mussel.

The ingredients in Tarsin is an excellent basis for a smooth moult. Pigeon and bird breeders are always surprised by the intact, smooth plumage of the animals when used during moult.

Dosage: Carrier pigeons

  • Breeding: 1 level scoop Tarsin/kg grain feed daily throughout breeding.
  • Travel: 2 level scoops Tarsin/kg grain feed for 2-3 consecutive days, preferably before the weekend. After very difficult travel for the first two days after returning. Then before the weekend begin one day later. See also “Travel plan”.
  • Moult: 1-2 level scoops Tarsin/kg grain feed for at least three days during the week or 1 level scoop Tarsin/kg grain feed per day.

Dosage: Cage birds

  • Breeding (or preparing for breeding) and moult: 1-2 level scoop Tarsin/ kg grain, soft or seed feed. For rearing feed (or egg feed) the dosage should be 4 slightly heaped scoops per kg of feed.

Of course you can also use Tarsin outside of breeding, travel, and moult.

Package insert:

1 level scoop of contents = 4g Tarsin.
