This product is a versatile formula for several medium and large-sized psittacine species of the genera Amazona, Psittacus, Cacatua, Ara, Psittacula, etc. Maintenance foods are formulated to feed pet birds and breeding birds during non-reproductive periods. Their composition meets the nutritional requirements of birds at these times. Not suitable for nymphs and other small-sized Psittacine species.
Directions for use
It is designed to constitute 100% of the parrot's diet in non-reproductive periods. 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. 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 their body weight per day in the case of medium-sized species (for example, African Grey) and up to 10% for small-sized species.
