Feathers are largely protein in nature, which is why 18 free amino acids have been included in NEKTON-BIO to help a bird build the proteins needed. Of the amino acids, arginine, methionine, and lysine are particularly vital in a supplement because most cage or aviary birds are fed on bird seed, which is poor in these amino acids. Vitamins A, E, and Biotin also have a positive effect on feather growth. Altogether 13 vitamins, 6 trace elements, and calcium have been combined with the amino acids to create a special formula to support the organism during the moult and encourage the growth of smooth and glossy feathers.
USAGEBeing in powder form and soluble in cold water, NEKTON-BIO can be added to the bird's soft food or drinking water without any trouble whatsoever. Never make up more than the normal daily ration of water or feed, and use fresh water or food every day so that the bird really does get full benefit of those essential vitamins etc. The enclosed measuring spoon will hold 1 g. Using this spoon, this means 1 spoonful to approx. 1/2 pint water (1/4 litre). If you have only one or two birds, pierce a small hole in the aluminium foil seal and shake a little into the drinking water or over the soft feed.
STORAGEDo not put any Nekton products in the freezer to prevent condensation which will cause clumps and discoloration. Do not decant Nekton products as it is probable to contaminate the product with bacteria. Nekton needs to be stored in the original container to filter out UV radiation.
