Wombaroo Granivore Rearing Mix - 1kg

Balanced diet for rearing or supplementing grain-eating (granivorous) birds including parrots, cockatoos, finches, doves, pigeons and quail.

About Granivore Diets

  • Granivorous birds obtain most of their energy from the complex carbohydrates in seeds and grain. In particular, they have high levels of digestive enzymes required for processing the starch in their diet. In the wild, granivores eat a variety of fresh green seed, fruits, other plant material and some insects. In captivity however, these birds are often maintained on dry seed diets, which are deficient in many nutrients.
  • In the breeding season, granivorous birds have an elevated requirement for protein, fat and other nutrients. This is required for proper development of eggs and to cater for the needs of their fast-growing chicks.
  • In order to provide optimum health in captivity, their diet needs to be fortified with essential amino acids, fatty acids, calcium, minerals and vitamins.

Benefits of Granivore Rearing Mix

  • Ideal for Hand-Rearing – elevated levels of protein, omega-3 & 6, vitamins and minerals for improved chick health.
  • Supplement for Breeding Birds – provides for the increased nutritional requirements of breeding birds.
  • Nutritional Support – assist-feeding formula for young, sick or malnourished birds.
