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.

Mimic the seasonal diet for best results!
For budgerigars start 6 weeks before breeding and for canaries and European birds 8 to 12 weeks before breeding, to give their bodies time to make all the changes. Improve the nutrition quality steadily week by week. Feast eggfood gives top quality higher-protein food as well as unique herbal health support. Add Daily Essentials3 to it for broad-based vitamin, minerals and amino acids. Add ProBoost SuperMax, a high protein complex product, to boost fertility, bring excellent breeding condition and support the young chicks.
If birds are carrying infections, it will seriously limit their ability to breed and chicks will be more likely to die. So now is the time to resolve low level infections and parasites.
Airsac mite weakens finches and canaries.
Worm burdens build up in birds with access to dirt floors and outside flights. Regular treatment with Harkaverm is advised and is essential before breeding.
