Daily maintenance is a highly palatable diet for the average bird and supplies nutrients needed to allow birds to look their best and to live long, healthy lives. Daily Maintenance has roughly 7% fat and 21% of its calories are derived from fat.
Use this diet when switching your bird from its old diet to Roudybush. Once your bird is eating the pellets well, put it on the Low-Fat Maintenance. Continue to feed Maintenance to birds that do not maintain a normal body weight on the Low-Fat Maintenance, birds that are recovering from a weight loss, and birds that are kept at low temperatures in outdoor flights. This is a higher fat, higher calorie maintenance diet to be used in instances where such a diet is needed. If you have a bird that you are continuing to feed Maintenance to which is a chronic egg-layer or a bird with a tendency to develop hypocalcemia, 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 fruits and vegetables may be given as a minor part of the diet.
