Higgins Dried Egg Food
Dried Egg Food is an important part of feather production, as feathers are protein! So this food is helpful for birds in a molt, or feather pluckers, as well as parents feeding babies. The benefit to feeding a dried egg food over a boiled or scrambled egg is that it doesn't spoil, and therefore can always be available.
This egg food made by Higgins provides your birds with an excellent source of protein derived from both animal and plant sources. Companion bird foods that do not contain animal proteins can be deficient in the necessary amino acids, methionine and lysine. Protein Egg Food is all natural (with added vitamins and minerals) and made with baked whole eggs, whole grain bread crumbs and pure honey. Feeding this egg food will also supplement your bird’s dietary intake with Vitamin A for immunity, Vitamins B12 & E for cell development, Vitamin D for bone and muscular development and Biotin for improved feathering. It is also enriched with plant-based, balanced DHA Omega-3 and 6 fatty acids to promote your bird’s overall health.
