Psittacus Breeding High Protein Formula - for breeding Amazons, Cockatoos, Ring-necked Parakeets and Alexandrines.
This product is intended for the reproductive stage of medium and largesized species which, in addition to the need for a high quality protein-rich diet during this time, also get benefit from an appropriate fatty acid content rich in oleic, such as Amazon parrots, white cockatoos, Ring-necked Parakeets and Alexandrine Parakeets (Amazona, Cacatua, Psittacula, etc.). Breeding extruded food is formulated to stimulate reproduction. It contains high levels of protein with suitable amino acids for this stage. Moreover, it is formulated with particular attention to fatty acids, Omega 6 and Omega 3 inputs. The concentration of vitamins and antioxidants of this product is higher than maintenance extruded foods, in order to satisfy the increased requirements during breeding season.
Directions for use
It is designed to constitute 100% of the parrot's diet. However, if fresh fruit and vegetables are provided daily to lend variety to the diet, we recommend that Psittacus should constitute no less than 70-80% of the total intake. No vitamin or mineral supplements should be given to parrots whose basic principal food is Psittacus. In the case of reiterated and/or numerous lays, we suggest to allow our Psittacus Grit Coarse available as a calcium source of voluntary intake. It is appropriate to renew food and water daily. Store in a cool dry place after opening (while refrigeration is not advised, freezing is possible if it is hermetically sealed).
Birds consumption varies between 5% and 8% of body weight. Medium-sized species (for example, Amazons) consume around 20-35 g per day.
