Product Information

Sunseed's Vita Plus Large Hookbill Safflower Formula with Quiko Egg Food and Spirulina is a sunflower free diet designed to meet the daily nutritional needs of multiple large hookbill species, including Amazons, African Greys, Cockatoos, and Conures. The addition of nutrient rich, highly fortified Vita Bite Pellets adds vitamins and minerals not normally found in a straight seed diet, promoting colorful feather growth and ensuring the overall health and well being of your pet bird. Eggs contain powerful antioxidants and are an excellent source of high quality, digestible protein. Spirulina, also an antioxidant, helps support the immune system. With tropical fruits, coconut, apples, raisins, sweet potatoes carrots and other vegetables rich in natural Vitamin A, this colorful diet is attractive to all Large Hookbills and is fortified with added calcium necessary for all life stages.

Sun Seed Vita Formulas are an excellent beginning to your bird's daily diet. As with all Sun Seed products, Vita Formulas start with a superior mixture of seeds and grains. This mixture is then fortified with essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.

The vitamin fortification is a two step process. First, ingredients that are totally consumable, such as oat groats (the heart of the oat seed) and flaked corn are coated with water soluble vitamins, human grade food colorings, and orange extract.

Water soluble vitamins are used because larger birds often tend to dip their food in their water prior to eating. If this occurs, some of the vitamins will actually soak off the food and fortify the water as well. The food coloring is used because most birds seem to be attracted to brightly colored objects and we want to ensure that they will be interested in the vitamin coated pieces. The orange extract also seems to help attract the birds to the vitaminized morsels.

Secondly, in addition to the vitamin coating, enriched extruded SunDiet pellets are also added to Vita formulas to offer the bird variety and help assure that even the most finicky eater will benefit from the vitamins that fortify Sun Seed's Vita Formulas.
