remove the diet after four hours. FruitBlend Flavor Diets are formulated to be the bird?s sole source of nutrition and require no supplements. If the diet is supplemented with other food items, make sure the FruitBlend
Flavor Diet makes up at least 80% of what the bird consumes.
Adding vitamin or mineral supplements to FruitBlend Flavor
Diets is not recommended and could be harmful to the bird.
Convert the bird to a ZuPreem FruitBlend Flavor Diet by mixing it
with the current food, slowly increasing the proportion of the
FruitBlend Flavor Diet and decreasing the proportion of the
previous food over the course of 10 to 14 days minimum.
Monitor the color of the bird?s droppings to ensure they are
well formed.The color of the droppings may change as a result
of the dietary change. It is not uncommon to observe certain
colors from FruitBlend Flavor Diets appearing in the feces.
