Egg food is a healthy and much-loved food supplement for ornamental birds. Grain feeds often contain few proteins and vitamins, making supplementation necessary. Especially during breeding and when bringing up young, egg food provides an essential source of protein. Birds weakened by illness can be helped to regain their strength with egg food supplement. A high vitamin content helps with moulting. Honey is added for increased acceptance, making even sick birds keen to peck away and take in any medicine mixed in with the food.

Please note: Egg food is not suitable for feeding during certain illnesses and can have a harmful effect in these cases. Avoid feeding egg food during illnesses that require a low-protein diet, such as kidney disease or gout. Please also note that regular feeding of egg food increases breeding instincts. Do not feed to females suffering from egg binding or females keen on breeding if no breeding is intended.

Dispose of unused food daily. Store in a cool and dry place.
During moulting and breeding, egg food may be fed daily. Add grated apple, carrots or fruit juice if desired.
Due to its higher vitamin D3 content compared to complete feeds, egg food must not make up more than 25% of the daily feeding ration.
