ALWAYS FULLY READ THE PRODUCT PACKAGING BEFORE USE. When changing your bird onto a new food it is important to do this gradually over several days. If your bird is already on a seed-based diet, over a few days mix some old food in with Beaphar XtraVital Parakeet to give your bird time to adjust to the new food. Some birds do not require a change over the period and will readily accept the new food. Alternatively, if you are changing your bird from a pelleted diet to a seed-based diet, this may need to be done over several weeks to ensure your bird accepts the new style of food. If you are unsure how to do this then please follow the schedule for transition below as a guide. The daily amount of Beaphar XtraVital Parakeet to give is dependent upon the size of the bird, its level of activity, it's housing, temperature, and weather conditions. The below information is a guide, so you may need to adjust the feeding amounts to suit your bird's requirements.
Budgies: Using the measuring scoop provided, feed 1 ½ scoops (7.5g) of Beaphar XtraVital Parakeet per day
Cockatiels: Using the measuring scoop provided, feed 2 scoops (15g) of Beaphar XtraVital Parakeet per day
Regularly check your bird’s weight to ensure you are feeding enough.
