Changing to Crumbles

Direct Change to Crumbles: Applies to cockatiels, companion parrots, quail and doves. Remove all seed and treats and provide only Crumbles. Observe the birds closely. If the birds do not eat during the day then provide some seed before nightfall and try again the next day. If this is not successful try "Introducing Crumbles"

Introducing Crumbles: For budgies, canaries, finches and smaller birds. Start with a 50:50 mix of Crumbles and seed. Over the next few days, slowly increase the proportion of Crumbles. Remove all the seed once the birds begin to eat the Crumbles. For very small birds such as finches and canaries Crumbles may be slightly ground down to produce a finer grade feed.

What to feed with Crumbles

Crumbles are a complete diet. Limit the use of supplements and treats. Offer up to 20% of the diet as fruit (apple, pear, kiwifruit, orange) or vegetables (corn cob, silver beet, kale, asian greens, carrot, capsicum, broccoli) as well as fresh seeding grasses and sprouted seed.

Directions

Feed as a dry crumble, replacing the seed proportion of the bird's diet:

Birds that are accustomed to eating seed need to modify their feeding technique to eat Crumbles:

  •          Initially they will disintegrate the food, but they should soon learn to totally consume the Crumbles and even eat any powder produced during feeding.
  •          Avoid changing the diet on days that are either very hot or very cold, or during times of stress on the bird.
  •          Observe the birds regularly to ensure they are eating the Crumbles.
  •          Don't over-fill the feed bowl, as birds will tend to scatter the Crumbles in search of their normal food
  •          Have at most two layers of Crumbles in the feed bowl.

Breeding Birds

Feed 50% more than the non-breeding requirement of Crumbles plus prepared Passwell Finch Soft FoodBudgie Starter or Parrot Soft Food, depending on species. This provides the additional protein and nutrient requirements for breeding birds.
