Rearing birds is an extremely rewarding process, but it does take effort, care and attention. The most important part of this level of caring is the form of food you feed your young birds making sure they have enough nutrients to grow into strong and healthy adult birds. Little Peckers knows this and have a selection of high quality bird rearing food from EMP, Orlux and Versele-Laga, which is sure to provide your young birds with all they need to support them through this crucial stage of growth.
EMP Bird Food
EMP’s Rearing Food should be used about two to three times per day when rearing, for adults it is to be used every other day normally, and every day during moulting periods to encourage healthy feathering. Just add a little water to create a soft, crumbly mixture and away you go! It can be bought from Little Peckers in 1kg, 2.5kg or 20kg packs to suit your needs.
Versele-Laga Rearing Food
Versele-Laga’s Nutribird range has two Hand Rearing Food formulas in the A19 and A21 mixes. The A19 provides a well-balanced complete diet, conveniently bringing together all the nutrients your baby-bird needs into one meal. The A21 is similarly scientifically proven to ensure an optimal and healthy development in young birds, and is recommended by veterinarians and used worldwide by ornithological parks and top breeders.
And we can’t forget Versele-Laga’s excellent Orlux range, which offer two eggfood patee compositions. These are essential for birds in the breeding season, but also can be used as supplementary food for birds all through the season. These formulas are moistened with 100% natural honey, and the Gold Patee is enriched with extra lysine and methionine, ideal for encouraging an optimal growth and feather composition.
