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 hypocalcemia (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.
