The Birdcare Company
On food multi-vitamins and minerals for birds. Add to softfood or fruits/vegetables. Contains 13 different vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
Not all useful ingredients come in a nice water soluble form. In these cases, a non-soluble product such as Daily Essentials3 which gets mixed into moist food may be better. Methionine, which is great at speeding up moults, dissolves in water but often smells disgusting like rotting cabbage therefore we put this in our on-food version.
Another consideration is that birds eating lots of moist foods obtain most of their liquid needs this way and so have little desire to drink water. Think birds eating chopped fruits or vegetables. So if you put supplements in the water, it is expensive for you and no value to the birds. The answer is to mix Daily Essentials3 into their finely chopped fruit, soaked seed or eggfood (Feast).
Key Features: mixes easily into moist foods. For all year round use and suitable for young and older birds. Promotes good health, condition and can aid with feathering and moulting problems.
Easy to mix into the birds food and there is no waste. I have only used it for a short time so cannot comment on the long term effects, but my birds consume their food as before so there is no problem with the taste or texture.
i use this if a bird is looking a little down as it is very good for bringing my birds into top health and improves their feed
I have been using DE 3 for a few years as part of the supplements I give my birds, usually with feast and then calcivet 2x a week. It is difficult to really say what difference it has made as my birds have always eaten plenty of fresh and sprouted food, however, the difference some of the other BCC products has made to the birds has been beyond question - so I have no qualms in relying on this as a good multivitamin to cover all the bases that may otherwise be missed. Will use again.
Been using this product for years , I also use calcivet , bioplus . My female cockatiel went to avian vet recently had swabs and poop sample done , vet said she had the best results he had ever seen im sure it’s the diet and supplements , she’s disabled she was t expected to live she’s now just over ten years old
I get this staff all the time ,I mix with egg food moister egg food and everything, Birds love that food
I give my birds FIFES this product every day through-out the year Daily essentials and find it keeps my birds in tip top condition and never get any trouble with going light or any other complaint 1st class medicine to keep birds in breeding condition
Because he is still transitioning to his Banquet I feel more comfortable adding Daily Essentials 3 to his veggie chop to make sure he is getting his nutrients.
Have been a Birdcare customer for about 20 years and have always found their products the best on the market - their back up services are also of the very highest order - fully recommended.
