Suitable for all types of birds with a high need for energy such as African grey, eclectus parrot, macaws, black cockatoo, golden conure,… and all baby birds of less than nine days of age. Start+ HE contains all nutrients to guarantee good growth and a wellbalanced development of the babies. The added probiotic (Bacillus Subtilis) as well as the prebiotics support the crop- and intestinal flora and optimise the digestion of the feed. The presence of DHA (essential fatty acids) contribute to an optimal omega-6 and omega-3 balance and supports the resistance against pathogenic bacteria. The presence of organic acids ensure an ideal acidity environment in the crop.
• Bacillus subtilis C-3102 109 CFU/kg
Always prepare fresh mash for each feeding! It is better to have the mash a bit more runny to stimulate good digestion and give one feed per day more!
HAND REARING FOOD has truly caused a big change in the world of bird breeding. It is the solution for numerous problems encountered during the breeding of birds.
In bird breeding in general, things have become much more professional during the last few decades. Keeping and breeding exclusive and costly birds, a higher number of eggs because of better feed, multiple sittings per year... and not to forget the hand tame indoor birds have caused a tremendous rise in the demand for hand rearing food. Hand rearing can be done in different ways. It can be done with a small spoon (sides bent), via injection or with a crop tube. Depending on the type of bird and the preference of the bird lover, the birds can be fed by hand. Hygiene is the most important aspect during the hand rearing. As a bird lover, one needs to make ensure that all recipients and containers are clean (spoons, injection devices, pots, brooders,…). Ideally, all recipients used should be cleaned in between different feeding sessions in order to keep the chances for infection as little as possible. If this is not done well enough, the vulnerable chicks will be more prone to contract infections, with disastrous consequences.
Other elements we need to take into account as a bird lover:
TIP: we advise as from day one after hatching to give a few drops of water with FLORA+, yoghurt whey,… This will avoid dehydration of the baby and will allow the crop and intestinal flora to work. As from the second day, the mash can be given in very thin consistency. Ideally, one can add more FLORA+ during the first week in order to supportdigestion.
DELI NATURE START+ has a slightly coarser structure (< 2mm). After a few days, the parents will be picking peeled seeds. Thanks to the coarser structure of START+ we areimitating nature as closely as possible. This stimulates the function and the working of the crop and optimises the digestion of the feed.
