Prepare food fresh each day. We do not advise storing food in the fridge overnight as it can become contaminated with micro-organisms.
Feeding Guide: Feed prepared Finch Soft Food as a supplement to finches or as a complete diet to insectivorous softbills such as wrens, robins, chats, whistlers and woodswallows. Feed in conjunction with insects or as a complete substitute for live food. Fussy birds can be enticed to eat Finch Soft Food by mixing in a few small mealworms, fly pupae, termites or other treats in the food. Can also be mixed in with soaked seed, sprouted seed or finely diced vegetables.
(guidelines for non-breeding birds)
|Amount to feed as a Moist Crumble
(1 teaspoon = 5g approx.)
|Small finches & waxbills||1g per bird per day.|
|Large finches & weavers||2g per bird per day.|
|Wrens, Robins & Chats||2-3 g per bird per day.|
|Whistlers & Woodswallows||5g per bird per day|
Breeding: Once breeding has begun offer as much Finch Soft Food as the birds will eat. Adult birds will take in Finch Soft Food, partially digest it and regurgitate it back to the chicks as a highly nutritious rearing food. Once the chicks have fledged keep feeding at about twice the amount suggested for non-breeding birds. This will maintain the protein and mineral levels required in the diet for the post-breeding moult. After the moult, reduce back to the amounts outlined for non-breeding birds.
Other Species: Finch Soft Food is an excellent high protein supplement for other species of breeding birds. For parrots, lorikeets and cockatoos, offer 5-10 g per pair per day. Alternatively, use Passwell Parrot Soft Food.
