ROUDYBUSH LOW FAT MEDIUM 44oz.
Low Fat Maintenance: Feed to adult birds that are not laying eggs or feeding chicks and that have a tendency to be overweight. Mix 1/3 Breeder with 2/3 Low-Fat Maintenance for chronic egg-layers and birds with a tendency to develop hypocalcemia (such as African Greys). Do not give other vitamin or mineral supplements. Fresh fruit and vegetable treats may be given as a minor part of the diet.
All of the Roudybush Daily Maintenance and Specialty diets are formulated by avian nutritionist Tom Roudybush, M.S. In his 16 years of nutritional research at the university of California, Davis, 10 of which specifically focusing on the nutritional requirements of pet birds, Tom has become a leader in the avian nutrition field. His work is the basis for most of the published nutritional research in pet birds that are available today.
We have replaced ethoxyquin with an all natural preservative in our Roudybush Low-fat Maintenance, Roudybush Maintenance, Roudybush Breeder and Roudybush High-energy Breeder pellets. The new preservative is a combination of d-tocopherol (a close relative of vitamin E), rosemary, and citric acid. Alpha tocopherol has antioxidant properties, but it is also biologically active and larger concentrations needed as a preservative may not be safe for birds. The advantage of d-tocopherol is that it has antioxidant properties but it has very little biological activity, so risk of toxicity is eliminated. Rosemary has natural antioxidant properties. Citric acid binds to certain minerals responsible for starting oxidation reactions, preventing those reactions from occuring. Roudybush is committed to providing your birds with the best possible food. Any changes we make to our formulations are thoroughly researched and only made when the data shows us there is a clear advantage.
