  • This diet is appropriate for many bird species and is useful when desiring to control dietary iron. Each batch of Mazuri® ZuLiFe® Soft-Bill Diet is analyzed for iron and the analyzed iron concentration is made available to all customers via the website at www.mazuri.com.
  • This diet should be fed at a rate of at least 70% of their daily intake (as is basis), with the remainder being fruits, vegetables and enrichment items.  For critically iron sensitive species (i.e. Toucans and Mynahs), avoid the addition of high iron food items (e.g. meat, dog food).  For other omnivorous species of birds, food items with higher iron concentration may be appropriate.  Consult your avian veterinarian to determine how iron sensitive species, or individual bird, may be.
  • To switch birds from their current diet to Mazuri® ZuLiFe® Soft-Bill Diet, do a gradual change over.
    • Start with 10% Mazuri® ZuLiFe® Soft-Bill Diet and 90% of their customary diet. Each day increase the amount of Mazuri® ZuLiFe® Soft-Bill Diet by 10% and decrease the amount of the customary diet correspondingly. During the switchover period, as well as for the first week after the switchover, it is critical that birds be observed carefully (weight and behavior).
    • If the bird loses weight, or if the bird is not consuming the product, offer a 50:50 mix of product and the customary diet. After the bird has stabilized and started to consume the product, continue the conversion process.
  • This diet is designed for birds after their first molt. Female birds which are heavy layers (more than 20 eggs per season) should have calcium supplementation in the form of pure, pharmaceutical grade, calcium carbonate (may be mixed with fruit) at a rate of 2% of their daily intake during the laying season only.
CAUTION:  This product is designed to have a low concentration of dietary iron.  No readily available iron source is added as an ingredient to this diet.  this product is not intended to be a sole diet for growing birds or birds which are not iron sensitive.  Prolonged use of this product could result in an iron deficiency.

Storage Condition
For best results, store contents of open paper sack in container with sealing lids.  Store in a cool (75°F or colder), dry (approximately 50% RH) location.  Freezing will not harm the diet and may extend freshness.  Use within 1 year of bag manufacturing.
