To successfully transition birds from their currently diet to COLORFUL COMPANIONS® Blend Parakeet, do a gradual changeover. Start with 90% current diet and 10% Parakeet. On each succeeding day, reduce the amount of seeds by 10% while increasing the amount of Parakeet by 10%. On the 10th day, the diet should consist only of COLORFUL COMPANIONS® Parakeet Blend.
Monitor the bird’s weight and behavior carefully during the conversion period. Be especially attentive during the 10th to 12th day. If the bird is losing weight, or if the bird is not consuming the product, offer the bird a mix of 50% original diet and 50% Parakeet and restart the conversion process from this point. If the bird is not eating, the excreta color will become dark green and the volume will decrease.
Supplemental calcium should also be provided in the form of cuttlebone to ensure birds can meet their needs for the mineral at all times.
Always provide animal with plenty of fresh, clean water.
