Premium Baby Hatchling and Young Bird Food Mash – Now Enriched with Extra Vitamin E!
We super charge our Premium Baby Hatchling Food with all the “additional ingredients” listed below. We use a fine vitamin and mineral powder which the birds ingest while feeding it to their babies. It presented to our birds dry and they get water as needed prior to feeding their babies.
I believe we are the only ones to offer this exclusive concept and it really helps to build bulk and size to your baby birds and will give all the birds what is necessary in their daily nutritional requirements to be healthy and strong.
Frisky Finches Hatchling Food is a large part of our “secret to success”. Our baby hatchling, chick and young bird mash is so power packed with everything necessary for Gouldians or any seed eating bird that I contribute about 40% of our breeding success to it. We have been mixing and using this blend of breeding mash for over 20 years and I am convinced this really helps to give baby Gouldians a big kick start in healthy growth and development. If it will work this good with Gouldians just imagine what is possible with other birds… Finches, Canaries, Parakeets, Cockatiels, Small Parrots, Doves, Pigeons, Quail, Pheasants, Chickens… We highly recommend you try this product! You will be very happy with the results, and so will your birds! It’s the most nutritional and best quality baby bird food available anywhere. Proven and tested for over 20 years!

Breeding Aid - Bird Breeding Supplies
Vetafarm Breeding Aid
Breeding Aid contains a blend of essential Fatty Acids (including Oleic and Linoleic Acids) that are used in the production of eggs and the growth of embryos. Most seeds have a low level of these essential Fatty Acids and hen birds rapidly deplete their body stores resulting in reduced breeding results.
Breeding Aid is particularly useful in smaller birds, which have large clutches or multiple clutch in a season, such as Budgies, Finches and Canaries. The Breeding Aid replenishes the fatty acids necessary for normal egg production and good hatchability.Breeding Aid may be used in conjunction with other vitamins, minerals, tonics and medications.




Each Litre contains:
Vitamin A 200,000 IU, Vitamin D3 20,000 IU, Vitamin E 80 IU, Linoleic Acid 430 g, Palmitic Acid 52 g, Oleic Acid 11 g
20 mL per Kg of seed.
Add the required amount of Breeding Aid to seed and mix well to ensure an even spread of the oil. Leave the seed for 24 hours before feeding to the birds, (it takes some hours for the oil to penetrate through to the seed kernel).
Store the supplemented seed in a cool place and do not prepare more than will be eaten in about 3 days.
In fussy eaters it may be necessary to start with smaller amounts (5 – 10 mLs per Kg) to introduce the birds to the fully supplemented seed.

Calcivet will dramatically improve egg shell quality and bone strength. Helps tremendously in egg hatchability and if used with Frisky Finches other products will eliminate egg binding in the Gouldian finch!

– Calcivet can be used in egg bound birds to aid in the expulsion of the egg and in cases of soft shelled eggs to deliver calcium to the shell glad.
– Calcivet should be administered to breeding birds for approximately one month prior to egg laying and through the chick rearing period.
– Calcivet can be used with Aviclens, Soluvet, Coccivet but not Psittavet.

Nekton E 35gr - Vitamin E Breeding Supplement  - Bird Breeding Supplies
Nekton E 35gr – Vitamin E Breeding Supplement
Contains Vitamin E as an aid to fertility and better hatching results. It is the best aid to preparing your pet for pressures of breeding season. Vitamin E plays a vital role in maintaining fertility. It promotes a bird’s entire metabolism – protein, carbohydrate, fatty, mineral and water metabolic processes. By ensuring a rich supply of Vitamin E for your birds before the laying period, you can look forward to larger clutches, fewer infertile eggs, better hatchability, and a reduced number of deaths among embryos and young birds.
Vitamin E plays a vital role in maintaining bodily functions and in the fertility of most animal species. It promotes a bird’s entire metabolism – protein, carbohydrate, fatty, mineral and water metabolic processes. Vitamin E occurs in multiple forms – tocopherols. The tocopherols act as antioxidants, protect other vitamins and are essential to cellular respiration, particularly in the heart and skeletal muscle tissues. Of all the vitamin E forms in the plant kingdom alpha-tocopherol is the most biologically active, an important factor in animal nutrition.

Protects against defects in bone structure. Helps produce better laying results. Guards against degeneration of heart and skeletal muscles. Protects against kidney and liver trouble.
Best aid to preparing your pet for pressures of breeding season.

NEW ALUMINUM Professional Breeder Quality Finch and Canary Split Leg Bands  - Bird Breeding Supplies
“NEW ALUMINUM” Professional Breeder Quality Finch and Canary Split Leg Bands
No Banding Tool Necessary
2 Sizes for Finches and Canary’s!
Solid Colors – Each band is numbered #1 through #20
ALL bands must be ordered “20” bands per stick/color


$3.99 Aluminum 2.55mm FINCH Split Bands 20 count





$3.99 Aluminum 3mm CANARY Split Bands – 20 count




Note: The numbers on the bands (1 to 20) are very small “like the bands” and are the same color as the band so you would have to be very close to the bird or HOLDING the bird to read the band numbers.

Directions: To split bands open break one off the stick and use a tool such as a “dull” butter knife or small flat head screwdriver and gently pry the band open “part way”, then softly pinch the band closed between your finger and thumb around the birds leg. These bands are made of aluminum which is a soft metal and will easily bend open or closed and hold their position. They can also be removed much easier than plastic bands should that ever be necessary.
