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 performance.
