To Supplement Naturally Available Foods
Birds are incredibly active. They spend a significant proportion of daylight hours foraging and searching for food. If natural food sources are low, there is a potential for birds to become malnourished. The Peckish range of wild bird food, together with Calvita® supplement, helps to keep wild birds strong and healthy.
Calcium for Eggs and Bones
It’s important that wild birds receive the right amount of calcium in order for them to stay strong and have healthy bones, but also in order to produce healthy eggs. Birds egg shells are made almost entirely from calcium, this means that calcium is an essential requirement for reproductive success.
Calvita® is so important as it also contains a variety of vitamins and biotin to help maintain healthy beaks, feathers, and for their general well being.
