Vetafarm Parrot Breeder Pellets 2kg
Leading up to and during breeding season, birds require extra nutrition to maximise breeding success. Fulfilling nutritional needs during breeding season protects your hen from egg binding and supports membrane development, shell formation, and chick development.
Breeder Pellets contain extra protein and amino acids, plus all of the vitamins and minerals needed to support reproduction and meet the high nutritional demands of egg production and chick raising.
Parrot Breeder Pellets were formulated by avian veterinarians for use during breeding season for optimum health of parents and chicks. Breeding birds require extra nutrition to enable them to lay fertile eggs and rear healthy chicks.
Parrot Breeder Pellets contains extra protein, vitamins and minerals to meet these high nutritional demands of breeding. Made fresh in Australia with fresh Australian ingredients. Extrusion cooked for optimum digestibility and food safety.
Parrot Breeder Pellets should be fed as your bird’s primary diet (80% of daily feed consumed).
The remaining 20% of the diet should be made up of healthy fruit and vegetables (15%) and a small amount of treat foods such as nuts and seeds (5%) to provide variety and enrichment.
Feeding should begin approximately 6 weeks before breeding season and continued until chicks fledge.
Chicks raised by parents being fed Parrot Breeder Pellets can be weaned directly onto Maintenance Pellets.
