How does it work?
Birds often have the most diverse colours. This is beautiful for us to look at, but for birds it has a real function. A male bird, for example, tries to impress the opposite sex with his beautiful coloured feathers.
Birds in the wild get their beautiful colours from food with natural colouring ingredients. In captivity they often do not get these natural ingredients, so that their natural colours are less pronounced. By adding Wisbroek Tagetes to their diet, their natural colours come out better.
Wisbroek Tagetes is a natural colourant for birds. It is extracted from Tagetes Erecta, the Marigold. The extract contains applicable pigments, consisting of isomers of zeaxanthin, lutein and lutein esters. This composition is suitable as a natural colouring for birds.
Advice for use
Add 1 to 10 grams of Wisbroek Tagetes to 1 kg of feed. This depends on the need for dye in the resting or moulting period.
Please note: Wisbroek Tagetes is not water soluble.
Tip from Mr. U:
Wisbroek Tagetes can be used in combination with other products from our range. For example, mix Wisbroek Tagetes with Wisbroek Mealworm Diet. In this way the bird gets it in a natural way via the mealworms. Or sprinkle it on the food insects together with our Wisbroek InsectPower. It can also be used together with Wisbroek Premium Pate or Wisbroek BreedPower.
Who is it suitable for?
Wisbroek Tagetes is a supplement suitable for birds such as insect-eating birds, parrots and parakeets.
