Maintenance foods are formulated to feed pet birds and reproductive birds during non-reproductive periods. Their composition meets the nutritional requirements of birds in these stages.

Directions for use

It is designed to constitute 100% of the parrot’s diet in non-reproductive periods. However, if fresh vegetables are daily provided to lend variety to the diet, we recommend that Psittacus Minor should constitute no less than 70-80% of the total intake. During the breeding season, parrots should always have access to our Psittacus Eggfood and Psittacus Calcium Grit Fine. No vitamin or mineral supplements should be given to parrots whose principal food is Psittacus Minor. It is appropriate to renew water daily. Store in a cool dry place after opening inside a closed container.
