Directions for use
It is a complete food. Birds get all the nutrients they need to enjoy great health, excellent vigour and optimal plumage. It is designed as an exclusive diet, but may also be combined with seeds in a mixed diet. In addition, leafy greens could be supplied regularly in order to vary the diet. Females temporarily increases their calcium requirements for the eggshell formation which must be readdressed with our Calcium Grit product. This should be placed in a separate feeder so that consumption is only voluntary. To stimulate chicks growth, parent birds should have access to our Serinus Eggfood Dry for Wild Birds. It is intended as a dry feed to be supplied in mesh feeders or external feeders. Store in a cool dry place after opening (while refrigeration is not advised, freezing is possible if it is hermetically sealed).
Birds consume about 3-4 g per day. Intake varies according to the ambient temperature (the lower temperature is, the more food they need). Intake will also vary according to the number of chicks reared by the parent birds and their stage of development. This product should be provided ad libitum.
