Psittacus Avian Silex Grit – Fine 1kg is ideal for specialised granivorous feeders (common budgerigar, Forpus, Agapornis, Neophemas).
This flint sand is calibrated to the optimum size to be ingested by these birds: 0.8mm – 1.2mm for small species. Its consumption is essential to guarantee an optimal functioning of the gizzard and the digestive tract in general.
Its function is purely mechanical and it should not be confused with Calcium grits which have a nutritional function as a calcium source. Contrary to what happens with calcium grits, Silex Grit Fine is insoluble and is not dissolved by gastric acids in the gizzard.
Psittacus Avian Silex Grit – Fine 1kg should be permanently available in an independant feeder.
The amount consumed depends on the species and the diet being offered. Species more highly specialised in the consumption of grass seeds will require a higher intake of Silex Grit.
