The Belmont Feed & Seed Family
Belmont Feed & Seed is Chicago's specialty store for people that keep Pigeons, Bees, Chickens, Small Birds, and other poultry and farm animals in an urban setting. Our store has been in business for over 25 years and the love we have for these hobbies have carried us through these years.
We are a family owned, very special and unique store located right in the City of Chicago. The reason our store is so special is because it carries an interesting variety of products for people that have decided to keep poultry, farm animals and bees in an urban setting. Our establishment and our increase is at the demand of a growing population of people that want to hold on to the special characteristics of humans to cultivate, reproduce and nurture animals. The bond between humans and animals has always been a mutually beneficial and powerful relationship that is considered essential to the health and well-being of both. This beautiful bond between humans and nature is what we and our customers are able to cherish by finding products to strengthen and increase this bond right here at our store. Over the years man-kind has become progressively further from the human-animal bond, however, there are a growing number of people that are longing to hold on to these virtues. We love to be here for those people.
We Are Here For You!
For The Backyard Poultry Keeper Our customers don't need to buy eggs at the market anymore! A growing number of people are raising chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys and other poultry right in their backyards. Here at our store they find everything they need to keep poultry in their backyard including feed, medications, bedding, supplies, and supplements. Not only that but our store has been selling live baby chicks and other baby poultry like ducks, geese, turkeys, and quails for years! Our helpful staff can also answer any questions related to the products that we carry.
For The Urban Beekeeper The truth is that we are Chicago’s first beekeeping supply store. It is also true to say that there are urban beekeepers right here in Chicago that are striving to keep the decreasing bee population alive. They are a group of people keeping bee hives on roof tops, in gardens, and in backyards no matter the size of the lot that they are on. These bees have an amazing impact on urban gardens as they pollinate millions of plants, and flowers across the cities. For this cause, we are here to supply the urban beekeeper with all of his/her beekeeping needs including hive tools, hive bodies and supers, hive equipment, beekeeping protective equipment, smokers, bee medications, and so much more. We also sell live bee packages, live working hives, and queen bees to make starting or expanding your apiary that much easier.
For The Pigeon Racer 25 years ago this store was opened to serve a large number of pigeon racers from Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa and other states. To this day, we pride ourselves in specializing in pigeon racing products including a wide variety of pigeon feeds, a collection of medications to treat every pigeon sickness or disease, a grand inventory of supplements to keep your birds healthy and strong and also numerous other loft supplies needed for racing pigeons. Many of our customers are actively pigeon racing as a sport and a hobby. Our store also offers pigeon racing expertise and information about how you could get involved in the growing sport of Pigeon Racing.
- Pigeon racing is the sport of transporting specially trained pigeons and then releasing them all at the same time, which then have the mission of returning to their individual homes. The time it takes the animal to cover the carefully measured and specified distance is recorded and the bird's rate of travel is calculated and compared with all of the other pigeons in the race to determine which pigeon returned at the fastest speed. In the mid-1900s pigeon racing was considered a classy gentleman’s sport in America. To this day there are thousands of pigeon racing clubs all across the United States and even more internationally.
For The Pigeon Fancier We are here to serve you with free information, products, tools, medications and anything that you might need to raise and breed those beautiful pigeons that you are keeping. We have learned that if one is able to keep their birds healthy and happy this shows great leadership and responsibility qualities.
