Passwell Red Factor Canary Seed is a balanced diet for red factor canaries. This mix is a standard canary seed that is infused with Canthaxanthin. This unique infusion process means that canthaxanthin is absorbed into the kernel of the seed and is therefore readily assimilated into the bloodstream of the bird. This is a more effective method of delivering canthaxanthin into the diet than adding it to drinking water, as there can be considerable variation in the daily intake of water by birds.
Red Factor Canary Seed should be fed as the only seed component of the bird’s diet prior to and during the feather moult. Best results are achieved if supplemented as a 50% mix with the usual seed diet all year round to maintain sufficient levels of circulating carotenoids in the blood stream.
If feeding seed as the main diet, birds may become deficient in essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and amino acids, patricularly when breeding, It is recommended to supplement with Passwell Egg & Biscuit which contains a balance of these essential ingredients. Alternatively, vitamins and minerals may be supplied from Passwell Multi-Vite for birds, calcium and D3 from Liquid Gold and essential fatty acids from The Good Oil for Birds.
