  • Feed free-choice and provide fresh food daily to birds after their first molt. This diet is not for growing chicks. The feeding amounts are guidelines and should be adjusted based on the bird’s body condition, activity level (free flight or not), reproductive stage, other foods offered, social structure, and environmental temperatures.

Softbill Recommended Feeding Guide

  • Fresh fruits, vegetables, or other enrichment food items may be provided, but as no more than 30% of the total diet.
  • Avoid feeding bananas because they are high in calories and dry matter content. Avoid food items which may contain high levels of iron (e.g. meat, dog food, grapes, blueberries, figs, etc.), and limit citrus fruit (oranges, grapefruit) because they may enhance the uptake of iron.
  • Reproduction: Females which are heavy layers may need supplementation of pure, pharmaceutical-grade calcium carbonate at a rate of 2% of their daily intake during the laying season only.
  • To switch birds to this diet, gradually replace your old diet with this diet at the rate of 10% per day. Do not overfeed during this transition time, and monitor your bird to be sure it is eating the new diet.
  • Always provide plenty of fresh, clean water. Thoroughly wash feed and water bowls on a regular basis. It is always good practice to wash hands thoroughly after feeding and/or handling animals. This diet is not for human consumption.

CAUTION: This product is designed to have a low concentration of dietary iron. No readily available iron source is added as an ingredient to this diet. This product is not intended to be a sole diet for growing birds or birds which are not iron sensitive.

Storage Condition
For best results, reseal the bag between uses or store contents of open paper sack in container with sealing lid. Store in a cool (75°F/24°C or colder), dry (approximately 50% RH) location free from rodents and insects. Do not offer moldy or insect-infested feed to animals as it may result in illness, performance loss or death. Freezing will not harm the diet and may extend freshness. Use within 1 year of bag manufacturing or "Best if Used By" date.
