Psittacus Microspheres 20/10 Wet & Dry Breeding Formula 800g is ideal for small parrots.
Breeding formulas are a complete diet formula with each pellet containing a full compliment of nutrients. This negates the common problem of picky feeding as the pellet and its nutrients are consumed as a complete package. These foods have been specifically designed to stimulate reproduction.
Breeding formulas contain high levels of protein with a suitable amino acid profile for this life stage, with attention to their profile of fatty acids and the content of Omega-6 and Omega-3. The concentration of vitamins and antioxidants of these formulas is much higher than in the maintenance formulas in order to cover the greater nutritional requirements during breeding.
Feeding Recommendations For Psittacus Microspheres 20/10 Wet & Dry Breeding Formula 800g:
Microspheres have been developed to provide rapid hydration while maintaining their spherical shape intact.
They can be offered either dry or wet. As a moist food, they are excellent to stimulate chick provisioning behaviour. Microspheres can also be offered mixed with other foods, such as Psittacus Eggfood (listed separately) or chopped vegetables. Be sure to add only enough water to create a moist, loose and non-sticky mixture as this is the texture which is most preferred by the birds.
- Pour two parts of Microspheres in a bowl.
- Add approximately 1 part water and mix.
- Let it stand for a minimum of 15 minutes.
- Break up the mixture and serve directly, or add dry Eggfood and/or vegetables. The mount of water used to hydrate the Microspheres will depend on the amount of added dry Eggfood.
