The rate of us is directly linked to the amount of our Sprouting Blends you feed each day.
- – In the beginning, all birds will need to have our sprouting blend make up at least 50% of the total volume of food they are fed each day. This is to ‘dose load’ them, to begin to make up for all the nutrients they have not received in prior diets.
- – For birds with an existing health condition, and those showing symptom, you will want to feed a volume of up to 80% of our Sprouting Blend each day. In other words 80% of our Sprouting Blend to 20% other appropriate wholesome foods.
- – Start by sprouting 1 tablespoon of our sprouting blend per bird, per day. For one parrot this means sprouting 3 tablespoons of our sprouting blend, and this would be expected to last for a 3-day period. Once you you begin feeding, adjust the amount of sprouting blend as needed.
Consider the Present Diet
Birds are skilled at hiding any symptoms of illness and disease – this is a primary survival trait in the wild. Please think about the type of diet your bird has been consuming when deciding the amount of sprouts to feed each day. Avian malnutrition is an insidious condition with one of it’s symptoms being ‘unexpected death.
