The secrets to improved show birds and quality feather condition revealed

Posted

Birds require certain nutrients to remain fit and healthy and a little boost of others to excel.  Nutrition plays a huge role in feather condition simply because the protein used to make feathers is very different in amino acid composition from the protein in the rest of the body. In fact 70% of the sulphur containing amino acids in a bird are incorporated in its feathers.

Unfortunately it is these very nutrients that are in very short supply in all plant foods whether it be seeds, nuts, fruits or vegetables. Supplementing with correctly selected amino acids does have a dramatic effect on both the quality of feathers produced and the speed with which they are replaced. These amino acids are incorporated into some of the better on-food vitamin supplements on the market.

They are not incorporated into soluble supplements (at least not in adequate quantities) because they can smell very unpleasant in tap water. So in general moulting supplements should be fed in an eggfood or added to moist fruit and vegetables. This can create a problem for owners of birds that are reluctant to take these foods.

The Birdcare Company has over 18 years' experience in designing and producing some of the most effective bird supplements on the market. Quite simply, there is nothing out there that can beat our show products.  With the simple addition of EasyBird Show Supremo into your birds diet, you can be confident that they are receiving the very best nutrition.
