Feeding Instructions

ZuPreem® AvianMaintenance™ Natural Diets are formulated to be fed free choice. A typical bird will consume 20% of its body weight per day. Feed the diet to maintain proper body condition. If the diet is moistened or becomes wet, remove the diet after
four hours.

AvianMaintenance Natural Diets are formulated to be the bird’s sole source of nutrition and require no supplements. If the diet is supplemented with other food items, make sure the AvianMaintenance Natural Diet makes up at least 80% of what the bird consumes. Adding vitamin or mineral supplements to AvianMaintenance Natural Diet is not recommended and could be harmful to the bird.

Convert the bird to an AvianMaintenance Natural Diet by mixing it with the current food, slowly increasing the proportion of the
AvianMaintenance Natural Diet and decreasing the proportion of the previous food over the course of 10 to 14 days minimum. Monitor the color of the bird’s droppings to ensure they are well formed.The color of the droppings may change as a result
of the dietary change.

Note – As an indicator of health, always monitor for changes in weight and body condition. Provide adequate amounts of food to maintain body condition, preventing excessive thinness or obesity. Always provide clean, fresh water.
