Roudybush Maintenance Mini 10lb Information




Not all bird feeds are formulated the same. Some bird feeds are basically just a random collection of bird seeds and with standard nutritional profile, but there are gaps in its nutritional profile. For example, it is too heavy on calcium or there is not enough protein or the energy component is lacking. When it comes to bird feed, you should look for a premium bird feed that not only meets the nutritional requirements of your bird, but also is standard enough that it maintains your bird's general nutrition.

For example, if you are using high-energy, high-calcium bird feed for your bird and your bird is not laying eggs, you are not only wasting money because you are paying more for this formulation, but it is also not doing your bird any good. It is not really improving your bird's health anymore than if you are feeding it a maintenance diet. The Roudybush Maintenance Mini feed from Pet Store is for maintenance diets.

It means it is the standard feed for birds that are not laying eggs or they are already mature birds, they are not chicks. By feeding them a maintenance diet, you are avoiding over supplementation and giving them the right nutritional profile for their stage of development. Roudybush Maintenance Mini is for mini birds and that includes cockatiels, budgerigars also known as budgies, African love birds, canaries, ring necks and other birds of this class.

Even lorries and lorikeets will accept this feed. These birds are normally nectar feeders, so their droppings are normally wet, but if you give them Roudybush Maintenance Mini, their droppings would be a bit drier, but they would still take this feed. Roudybush Maintenance Mini has such a complete nutritional profile for non-laying adult birds that you do not have to give them many extra vitamins or extra minerals. In fact, those might be harmful because it might exceed their nutritional profile with Roudybush Maintenance Mini. This feed is nutritionally complete and that is why you save money on supplements.

However, if you wish to supplement your bird's diet with fruit and vegetable treats, that is fine as long as you give them just a small part and it pays a minor role or a small component of their diet. Natural sources like fresh fruits and vegetables are okay, but do not use concentrated supplements. If your bird during its cycle with this bird feed starts to mate or begins to lay eggs or it has a propensity for developing hypocalcemia, which is low calcium levels, mix two-thirds of this feed with one-third Roudybush High-Energy Breeder so that you can give your pet more calcium for them to cope with the hypocalcemia or deal with the depleted calcium levels that happens with egg laying.

Try Roudybush Maintenance Mini today and see the difference.

Roudybush Maintenance Premium Bird Food When nutrition is important, Roudybush premium foods are second to none. Use this diet when switching your bird from its old diet to Roudybush. Continue to feed to adult birds that are not laying eggs or feeding chicks. Lories and lorikeets, which will accept this diet, will have drier droppings than they have on nectar. If you have a bird that is a chronic egg-layer or a bird with a tendency to develop hypocalcemia (like African Greys), mix 2/3 Maintenance with 1/3 High-Energy Breeder to supply more calcium and vitamin D3. Do not give additional vitamin or mineral supplements. Fresh fruit and vegetable treats may be given as a minor part of the diet.

Best Bird Food

Comments: Roudybush definitely is one of the best pellets for any bird. My trusted bird breeder uses this for all of her birds, at any age. Seeds provide poor nutrition, but this pellet is completely balanced. Pair this with fresh vegetables, and the occasion seed treats and you will have a health, happy bird.

Comments: the only food our amazon parrot will eat. she wouldn't touch the small pellets for she can't to hold the small pellets at her mouth. we had purchased other brands and found she picked and chose the peanuts to the exclusion of all others. the vet marvels at how well she looks and called his assistant in to show her what parrots are supposed to look like. apparently a lot of his avian patients are overweight! we supplement the roudy with 2 unsalted peanuts in the shell daily.

Great for budgies

Comments: We have been helping our budgies to kick their unhealthy seed habit. After trying other pellet brands (Harrisons, etc.), some folks from www.mickaboo.org suggested Roudybush pellets. These have been very successful, and our birds look healthy and are very active. We also feed them spray millet, along with various vegetables (halved cherry tomatoes, while baby carrots, corn on the cob, etc.).Thanks for a dependable supply of our budgies' key source of nutrition.

Comments: Lat time I bought this product (another vendor) it came in a plastic tub with minimal breakage. This time it came in the big plastic bag with a ton of crumbles on the bottom - the stuff my parrot won't eat cause it's too small. Wish the company would return to the tub - much easier storage, better retention of product integrity. I have always loved Roudybush for my birds - now if only they would improve the packaging!

Comments: We are breeders of Indian Ringnecks, and also green cheek conures. This products is accepted readily, from fledglings through breeders. The health of our fifty plus birds is paramount to us, and we can say that the Roudybush line of fine bird foods meets or exceeds the daily requirements of all birds in our care. We will continue to use the mini extruded pellets exclusively of any other brands on the market today, as we have experimented with them all
