Daily Maintenance:  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 hypocalcaemia (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.

Do not give other vitamin or mineral supplements. Fresh fruit and vegetable treats may be given as a minor part of the diet.

California Blend:  A wholesome blend of dried peaches, apricots, plums, bell peppers, carrots, tomatoes, and cabbage combined with Roudybush Daily Maintenance pellets and a healthy dose of sunshine. 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.

Breeder:  This diet meets the nutritional needs of the growing chick. Feed it to overweight breeding birds that are feeding chicks. Mix 1/3 Breeder with 2/3 Low-Fat Maintenance for overweight birds that are chronic egg layers or overweight birds with a tendency to develop hypocalcaemia (such as African Greys). The mixture provides the extra calcium and vitamin D3 to support egg production or to meet the needs of birds that seem to need more calcium than other birds. Do not give additional vitamin or mineral supplements, such as cuttlebone, mineral block, or multivitamins. Fresh fruits and vegetables may be given as a minor part of the diet.

High Energy Breeder:  Feed to breeding birds that are feeding chicks. Wean chicks onto this diet for the first 1-3 months post-weaning (3 months for the larger species, one month for the smaller species). High-Energy Breeder will provide these young birds with extra protein, calcium, and Vitamin D3 needed for the continued growth that occurs during that time. The higher energy will help put back the body weight lost in the weaning process. Mix 1/3 High-Energy Breeder to 2/3 Maintenance mixture for use in birds with a higher calcium need or are being introduced to Roudybush. Do not give additional vitamin or mineral supplements, such as cuttlebone, mineral blocks, or multivitamins. Fresh fruits and vegetables may be given as a minor part of the diet.

Senior Diet:  This diet is specially formulated to meet the needs of pet birds that may benefit from a diet that is higher in calcium, vitamins, trace minerals, and protein such as older birds, African Greys, and weaning chicks. Do not give additional vitamin or mineral supplements. Fresh fruit and vegetable treats may be given as a minor part of the diet. Not sure if this is the right diet for your bird? Consult your avian veterinarian before switching your bird to Senior Diet as the higher calcium, vitamin, trace mineral, and protein levels may not be appropriate for all birds.

Lory Diet/Nectar 15:  This diet is lower in sugar than other brands of nectars, so switching a bird from another brand of nectar sometimes requires adding a small amount of powdered sugar to the diet and slowly eliminating it to convert the birds. Less sugar is helpful to reduce incidence of yeast infections that lories are prone to due to the high sugar diets they are commonly fed. Some people grind up the maintenance pellets into a powder or convert their birds to maintenance crumbles. Lories do very well on the maintenance diet. Feeding pellets, crumbles, or dry powdered Lory Nectar will result in drier, easier to clean up droppings, making lories that much more pleasant to live with. Although some people use the Lory Nectar to handfeed lory chicks, we recommend using Formula 3, which provides a little higher protein needed for growth in the chicks and eliminates the sugar that could lead to yeast infections.

Also: Formulated for hand-feeding hummingbirds from 0-3 weeks of age; it contains 15% protein. Not for use in Hummingbird feeders.

Formula 3:  Use as a handfeeding formula for all species of psittacines from day one to weaning. Also used for handfeeding Squabs older than 7-14 days (7 days for smaller species, up to 14 days for larger species). Do not give additional vitamin or mineral supplements.

Squab Diet:  Columbiformes (doves and pigeons) are remarkable among the bird world in that the parents produce a substance called "crop milk". The crop wall undergoes changes while the parents are incubating their eggs so that upon hatching, the squabs can be fed a high protein, high fat material composed mainly of material shed from the parents' crop walls. As the squab mature, their need for this material decreases and eventually disappears, leaving the squab with nutritional needs like those of parrots. During this time the parents’ crop walls return to normal.

Use this formula from day one to 7-14 days, as a crop-milk replacer. After 7-14 days (7 days for the smaller species, up to 14 days for the larger species), gradually switch from Squab Formula to Formula 3 over a 1-2 day period, increasing the proportion of Formula 3 a small amount at each meal. Do not give additional vitamin or mineral supplements. Squab Formula may also be used as a handfeeding formula or tube feeding formula in insectivores being rehabilitated.
