Calcium powder supplement for birds with added vitamin D3 for application onto soft food or fresh foods. This fine flowing powder allows for easier and more even distribution once applied onto moist food sources.
Quality chelated calcium! No more...
Calcivet® - Used by top breeders around the world!
Key Features: Ideal for breeding and growing birds. Promotes healthy egg production and has proven to be very effective as an emergency product for egg-bound hens. Calcium is involved in brain and nerve function and can improve behavioural problems such as feather plucking or chewing.

I have used this ( powered version which I prefer) consistently as directed before egg laying and drop to two days a week the rest of the year after babies have finished growing. I have never had any problems with poor egg quality, egg bound hens or splayed legs etc. I have also used a loading dose of calcivet on a blue and gold macaw which I rehomed with poor feather quality and withheld feather sheaths along with the normal DE3 and feast. I did this for a month before dropping to 2 days a week. When blood and disease testing failed to find a reason for the withheld sheaths despite the bird having previously been on a ‘good’ diet ( Harrison’s pellets) I asked the Bird care company and they recommended these steps to take. 18 months later the macaw is in beautiful condition. I would highly recommend this product.

Easy to administer with soft food I prefer the powder rather than liquid

I add to soft food every day during the breeding season, three times a week during moult and winter.

Add it to my Ringnecks veggie chop twice a week as he had no sources of calcium or D in his previous home. Only wish it came with a tiny spoon as trying to pinch the product is messy.

Excellent well developed product easy to use and vital

A lovely product that mixes with the fruit and veg I feed my birds and is readily ingested.
The only criticism I have is the container it comes in, not the product itself. It would be much better with a "pepper" style shaker lid to make the application of smaller quantities to food so much easier. As with other Birdcare Company supplements etc I'm disappointed that they don't supply containers with built in applicators as standard.

The birdcare company actually saved my parrot's life a few years ago when she had a calcium deficiency and nearly hacked herself to death - The vet(s) tested her many times over and did not recognise the problem. My Meyers was suffering SO much I was on the verge of having her put down - it was awful, and then I found the Birdcare company who immediately recognised her problem. My Meyers has her calcium supplement regularly and the Birdcare company is the only place I will purchase it from/recommend. The product is fantastic. The company really care/show they do and know their stuff with helpful advice! This really is a one stop shop for quality food and supplements for birds. I will shop at no other place now. I also take other supplements for my parrot which were recommended by the Birdcare co. and my Meyers has never been so perky and healthy looking. Her coat is bright and shiny and soft and she is very happy and healthy. Thank you Birdcare Co!
