Fruitmix - Start low iron (40 ppm)

Premix to prepare a complete rearing diet for frugivorous birds, such as Touracos, Mousebirds, Trogons, Mynahs, Hornbills, Barbets, Toucans, Broadbills, Cotingas, Pipras, Bulbuls, Leafbirds, Waxwings, Flowerpeckers White-eyes, Tanagers, Birds of Paradise, Troupials, Fruitdoves and Eclectus Parrots

Low iron contents of 40 mg/kg (40 ppm) to avoid iron intoxication (hemosiderosis and hemochromatosis).

Newborn frugivorous birds are fed different kinds of insects and insect larvae, day-old mice etc. The nutritional value of insects can be increased by using Aves-Mealwormfood or Aves-Insect dustingpowder. When the young mature, the parents will offer the youngsters the same diet as their own.The standard Fruitmix diet should be exchanged for Fruitmix Start, with increased protein, calcium and other nutrients to support gain, feathergrowth and skeleton development. Preparation of Fruitmix Start is the same as of Fruitmix.
