Vetafarm Nutriblend Breeder 2kg
Breeding birds require extra nutrition in the form of protein, vitamins and minerals to support the laying of fertile eggs and rearing of healthy chicks. The Vetafarm Nutriblend Pellets contain all the essential nutrition breeding parrots require. Chicks in the nest will also be fed the fortified diet by their parents, meaning they will also receive the necessary nutrition for healthy development.

Directions for Use:The Vetafarm Nutriblend Breeder Pellets should be fed as a total diet, beginning approximately 6 weeks before the breeding season and continued until chicks fledge (when young birds develop feathers that are large enough for flight).
As a guide, most cage and aviary birds will consume about 10% of their bodyweight in dry feed per day. For example, a 100g cockatiel will consume approximately 10g of dry food per day.
Fruit and vegetables should be fed to make up approximately 20% of the diet to encourage interaction and provide variety and stimulation.
If feeding as a supplement to seed-based or homemade mixtures, provide as approximately 10 - 20% of the total diet.
Recommended for: Breeding Australian and Asiatic parrots. Also suitable for exotic breeding parrots such as the South American parrot.
