Higgins Protein Red Egg Food provides your red factor canary with an excellent source of protein derived from both animal and plant proteins. Companion bird foods that do not contain animal proteins can be deficient in the necessary amino acids methionine and lysine. Protein Egg Food is made with baked whole eggs, whole grain bread crumbs and pure honey. In addition, we add Beta-Carotene to assist in maintaining your red factor canary’s unique color. Feeding Higgins Protein Egg Food as part of your bird’s diet will not only add variety but will supplement its dietary intake with Vitamin A for immunity, Vitamins B12 & E for cell development, Vitamin D for bone and muscular development and Biotin for improved feathering.
Higgins Protein Egg Food can be fed dry or moist. DRY - Sprinkle approximately 2 tablespoons (1oz) per bird of Protein Egg Food over your bird’s existing regular dry food or serve in a separate treat cup. MOIST – In a small cup, moisten approximately 2 tablespoons (1oz) per bird of Protein Egg Food with about a teaspoon of purified water or just enough to moisten the egg food. Feed in a separate treat cup. For added variety, you can mix in fresh chopped soft fruits or add Sunburst Leafy Greens & Herbs. Remove any uneaten food from your bird’s cage daily and discard.
