VITAMINS For Molting
Increased metabolic load on the body and additional need for some vitamins appear during the molting period.
Add during the molting period (about 2 months) 10 drops per 100 ml. in drinking water.
Multi-vitamin preparation for bird keeping and breeding with all vitamins
It is recommended to use 2-3 times a week to maintain overall health.
Add 15 drops per 100 ml of water to drinking water NB! Do not use if the bird feeds on granular feed. It already contains all the necessary vitamins.
Remember that an excess of vitamins is as dangerous to health as a lack.
PRIME adds 14 essential vitamins and 9 minerals missing in commercially prepared seed mixtures for companion birds. As well it provides proper quantities of two limiting amino acids – Lysine and Methionine – which cannot be produced by birds, but are vital to growth and proper protein metabolism.
PREFERRED METHOD (moist food dosage):
Mix or sprinkle recommended dose over the bird’s favorite greens, vegetables and/or fruit. Do not mix supplement in standard seed mix as most will settle to food dish bottom or the powder may coat the seeds and be removed with empty seed hulls. By using the bird’s favorite moist foods to absorb the powder, smaller and more accurate dosages can be used since total consumption of the treated food is achieved.
Small birds (Canary, Cockatiel, Finch, Lovebirds, Parakeet, etc.) ½ c.c. per day. Medium birds (Goffin, Lory, Miniature Macaw, Mynah, Pionus, Small Amazon, Softbills, Timneh, etc.) 1 c.c. per day. Larger birds (African Grey, Amazon, Cockatoo, Macaw, Toucan, etc.) 1 ½ c.c. per day
HARI Clay-Cal Bentonite Clay Supplement offers companion bird’s the benefits of natural geophagy, in a ready available supplement, specifically milled to be suitable for companion birds. As a daily supplement: mix or sprinkle 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of Clay-Cal onto your bird’s favorite greens, vegetables and/or fruits. Moist food helps ensure the absorption of the clay and increases the benefits of cationic activity, while at the same ensuring the likelihood that the supplement will be consumed. Alternatively, you can sprinkle or mix up to 2 teaspoons (10 ml) with extruded pellets or seeds. As a detox: to provide a detoxifying regime for your bird we recommend the HARI Clay-Cal 21 day Clay Milk regime: With a plastic or non-metallic spoon, mix 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of HARI Clay-Cal with 125 mL (1/2 cup) of water. Let mixture settle overnight. The “mud” will sink to the bottom and a “milky” liquid know as “clay milk” will float to the top. The “clay milk” can be served to birds in a non-metallic drinking bowl for detoxification therapy. Change water daily. Repeat for 21 days. Save the “mud” (see advanced uses below)!
