explains our main breeding nutrition system.
birds is a combination of skill, hard work, art and science. Our
breeder nutrition products are designed to put both you and your
birds in control of their diet. Getting it right means you will
have good breeding results when others have bad years and excellent
results when the others have a good year. This e-mail from leading
British Yorkshire canary breeder Brian Keenan says it all:
I have now
used Birdcare products for 7 years, and in that time have reared
over 600 young Yorkshire canaries to maturity. Based on my previous
feeding methods, I would have achieved around the 240-300 mark
over the same period, at most. This year has been another 'poor
year' for many canary breeders, but I have reared 80 young birds,
ending the season one month earlier than normal.
Obviously, my improved results are not solely down to Birdcare
products, but I am convinced they have been, and continue to be
the catalyst for my on-going successes. People regularly ask me
if and how I use your products, and whether I find them expensive.
The additional stock I am producing more than pays for itself,
compared to the price of the Birdcare products I am using – so
to me, they remain on my 'essential shopping' list - as for advice,
if people cannot find help from your revised web pages, then that
help probably does'nt exist!

Our supplements can be used to mimic this wild diet so assisting
your birds' breeding cycles. The chart below gives an indication
of how we try to change our breeding birds' diets to mimic these
natural changes in the wild.
your birds are not breeding (we
call this maintenance) they will benefit from extra vitamins and
minerals. These can be supplied by adding Daily Essentials3 to softfood (Feast)
or fruit. Breeders with large collections will find the more
concentrated version (BirdPark Essentials) more economical.
contains all the vitamins and minerals that your basic diet may
be short of plus the added benefit of extra limiting amino acids.
These amino acids boost usable protein levels significantly which
prevents obesity and enables birds to moult very easily with no
stress. Once a week CalciBoost
will ensure that
bones are well stocked with this important mineral.
are a few circumstances when on-food supplementationis not practical.
So we have Daily Essentials1
(or Daily Essentials2) to add to the
drinking water. However the technical superiority and lower applied
cost of the in-food products makes in-water supplementation a
definite second choice. Feel free to talk to us about this by
or phone (1-888-588-3892).
the wild birds are brought into breeding condition by changes
in day length and improvements in food quality (protein, vitamin
and mineral improvements in newly growing plants). We call this
the lead-up period. So we steadily increase these
items in the diet by feeding more Feast. To this
softfood we add the high protein supplement ProBoost SuperMax, CalciBoost
(only once or twice a week) and Daily
Essentials3. Potent Brew
will ensure the
adults digestive system is functioning brilliantly so helping
them into full breeding condition. You can estimate the quantities
and timing of each of these products with our computerised supplements
may all sound complicated but actually the routine becomes very
simple and the results are well worth it. Remember lots of breeders
double their chick production and dramatically reduce both chick
and adult deaths using our full system.
the breeding season we maintain this high level of nutrition
and increase CalciBoost
to five times a week (after egg laying has started) to replenish
the hens' bone calcium reserves and provide the calcium required
for chick bone formation, nerve and muscle function. Potent
Brew gives the chicks a brilliant start by ensuring that
their digestive system operates very quickly. On this system you
may need to close ring birds days earlier than normal. Check on
day three or day four for budgies and finches!
five products, properly applied, could revolutionise your breeding.
If you have a large collection why not try the system on just
10 pairs and see for yourself the difference it can make. We are
confident that you will be delighted. And, for the tiny number
of people who don't get success or continue to suffer bird health
problems our free advice service is available to help you discover
just what is going wrong.
