Psittacus High Protein Maintenance Formula - for Amazons, Cockatoos, Ring-necked Parakeets, Alexandrines.
This product is intended for species that in wild consume a great amount of fruits and seeds with low-moderate fat content such as Amazon parrots, white cockatoos, ring-necked parakeets and alexandrine parakeets (Amazona, Cacatua, Psittacula, etc.). Maintenance foods are formulated to feed pet birds and reproductive birds during non-reproductive periods. Their composition meets the nutritional requirements of birds at these times.
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 60% 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 body weight. Mediumsized species (for example, Amazons) consume around 20-40 g per day.
