High Energy Breeding Formula


This product is intended for the reproductive stage of medium and large-sized 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 palmitic oil (Ara, Psittacus, Poicephalus, 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 give access to our Psittacus Calcium Grit Coarse as a calcium source of voluntary intake. It is appropriate to renew food and water daily. Store in a cool dry place after opening inside a closed container.
Daily intake
Birds consumption varies between 5% and 8% of body weight. Medium-sized species (for example, African Grey parrots) consume around 25-40g per day.
