Eating Disorders

Eating disorders often have a puzzling origin to lots of bird lovers.   Many times a bird "goes off feed" when it has been given a dose of antibiotics.  This is because the antibiotics indiscriminately destroy the essential bacteria that is required for digestion and absorption of the food the bird is eating.  

The killing of this essential flora in the bird's gut causes it to lose it appetite, thus "going off feed".  Rebalancing the flora in the gut has been shown to aid in restoring the bird's appetite and desire to eat as well as its ability to absorb the nutrition you are providing.       

BOTANICAL BIRD FOOD™ - developed for the bird that has quit eating or is recovering from a severe illness and needs additional protein and amino acids in order to get back to health quicker. 

These are blends of stone ground, organic food grade herbs designed to boost the immune system and have been part of the bird’s natural food in the wild. 

Can be sprinkled on top of seeds or pellets daily or moistened as a soft food in and of itself.  Excellent for aiding in weaning stress of the youngsters.   

Botanical Bird Food wholesales for: 

Small  $15 for 2.5 ounces
Large  $25 for 20 ounces.

A highly potent microbial for the adult bird that enhances the natural bacterial activity in the digestive system and boosts the immune system. ProBac Adult™ improves the enzyme system with the digestive tract therefore improving the bird’s nutritive uptake thus improving the bird’s immune system.

ProBac Adult™ is a powdered substance containing 20 Billion colony forming units per gram of good bacteria. It has been used in the bird industry in Europe since 1874.  It does require refrigeration. It is used either in the water, the soft food or both. We recommend 1/8 teaspoon to a cup or less of water or sprinkled in your bird's soft food on a daily basis until your bird is extremely healthy.   Then we recommend ProBac to be used one or two times a week to maintain your bird’s excellent health.

 Small  $20 for 2.5 ounces 
Large  $40 for 20 ounces.
Many breeders use Botanical Bird Food to help wean their babies onto regular adult food.  Normally adding a small amount along with what you are attempting to get your baby to eat, will get them weaned properly within a few days. 

Other bird owners use this food whenever they have a bird that is "off feed".  Birds seem to respond well to this specially formulated variety of stone ground herbs.
