Feed exact Rainbow food every day in a clean food cup following guidelines below. Adjust to the bird’s actual needs and spillage. Provide a clean, fresh supply of water daily.
Exact Rainbow food is designed to be the bird’s sole diet. Limit additional foods such as fresh fruits, vegetables or other treats to 20% of the bird’s total diet. When used as directed, no additional vitamin or mineral supplements are recommended.
Converting to exact Rainbow
When changing to a new food or diet, birds require time to adjust. It is recommended to slowly mix the “old” with the “new” until the birds are accustomed to the new diet as directed below. For best results, limit the portion of food available to the suggested feeding amount.
After 21 days feed exact food only – your bird should be completely converted. Observe your bird closely to ensure it is eating exact food and not searching for its “old” food. A color change in the droppings (to a brown or reddish-brown color) should be evident with successful conversion.
Conversion time may vary. For more details or questions on conversion visit the Kaytee website.
