Passwell Liquid Gold a calcium & Vitamin D3 supplement for birds supplies Calcium, Vitamin D3, Magnesium, Manganese and Lutein in a readily absorbable liquid that can be added to the drinking water, soaked seed or soft foods. Can also be administered orally to deficient birds. Calcium is 'like gold' when it comes to breeding birds and raising healthy chicks. It is an essential nutrient for proper egg shell formation and bone growth in developing chicks. However most seed mixes do not provide the essential calcium that birds require. Vitamin D3 is required for the effective absorption of calcium from the gut. Magnesium and manganese are also important minerals in egg shell and bone formation and should be balanced with calcium intake. Lutein is a naturally-occuring antioxidant that provides the rich yellow colour in egg yolk. Active ingredients: Calcium, Magnesium, Manganese, Vitamin D3, Lutein
In water - add 20ml per litre of drinking water
In food - add 40ml per kg of soaked seed or soft food and mix well
Individual bird dosage - 0.2ml per 100g body weight
Note that calcium and vitamin D3 may be toxic to birds at high doses so it is not recommended to add Liquid Gold to food preparations which are already fortified with these nutrients.
