Contaminated drinking water is one of the most common ways diseases spread from one bird to another. Despite the chlorine added by our water suppliers, the water from our taps contains a number of potentially dangerous germs. These get added to during the day when our birds bath, dunk food and carefully place their droppings into the drinkers! These germs then multiply and can reach dangerous levels.
Adding just tiny quantities of the water sanitiser Aviclens stops these germs from multiplying and keeps infection rates well below the level that your bird’s immune system can cope with. Aviclens is added to water at the rate of 5 mls. to a mammoth ten litres of water! So it is incredibly economical to use.
Aviclens has another important role too. Soaking or sprouting seeds are the perfect environment for germs - particularly yeasts and fungi. To eliminate this danger from your birds simply use Aviclens in the water you use for the sprouts at the dose rate indicated above. Change the water daily.
