Mineral Grit for all small birds including Canaries, Finches, and Parakeets, is a great source of calcium and minerals. Mineral Grit is made with crushed oyster shells and not gravel. The oyster shells are enriched with essential minerals that give its unique color and natural anise oil for a pleasing, licorice aroma. Although controversial in the US, in Europe, the world's best breeders and keepers all know that it is an important part of every comprehensive caged bird diet. Sold here as bulk, and is in a BPA free, food grade stand up bag, heat sealed and quality foil sealed. 


Feed one teaspoon per bird, per day. Mineral Grit can be fed in a separate treat dish or mixed with your pet’s daily food. Offer free choice, but be sure to offer separate food as this is not intended to be the sole diet.
