Food for poultry
You are what you eat. This is true for both birds and humans. The poultry food you will use is vital to a healthy and long-lived bird.
The only problem with poultry food is that we don’t really know what the nutritional requirements of each species or type of bird are. The more time passes, the more we learn.
In the past, birds were divided into 2 categories. They were the seed eaters and the meat eaters. Since then, a more varied diet has been used. Now the birds eat fruits and vegetables. That is if they will eat them. Just like us humans, much of a good thing is just bad. Variety is the key.
A bird has the fastest metabolism of any animal. This means they need more energy just to stay healthy and in good shape.
You just need to provide a variety of healthy foods for poultry feed. Commercial bird food is available that is formulated to support the health of the little guy or the big guy and is recommended to feed your bird.
You should also familiarize yourself with the birds’ natural habitat. By knowing this, you can figure out what the bird will eat in which season.
The natural feeding behavior of birds is to forage in the morning. They eat what they can and store the rest in the “harvest”. This culture stores the food, allowing the bird to fly to another place that is safe from predators to digest the food. If you keep pet food or organic pet food in the cage all the time, the bird is not fulfilling its natural eating habits. This can cause the bird to become bored and very picky about its food.
Here are some tips to beat boredom.
Put the vegetables on a stick or stick. The bird will need to hold it so it doesn’t move around while they eat. Place the food between the bars of the cage. The bird will have to untie the food to eat it. You can stuff food into all the crevices of a cone. the bird will have to forage to extract that food from itself, as in the wild.
Don’t think of poultry food as equivalent to dog and cat food. In other words. Don’t make dog and cat food exotic bird food. Just don’t feed a bird that kind of food. This will have a bad effect on the health of the birds.
