EXOTIC WATER BIRD DIETS
Charnwood offer a range of "floating" extruded feeds for marine ducks
and flamingos. The extrusion process "cooks" the starch ensuring maximum
digestibility while injecting air into the disc allowing them to float
on the water. All diets include natural marine protein (fish meal and
shrimp) to compliment natural food sources like molluscs and are fully
balanced and vitaminised to provide good growth, feathering and breeding
