Description

Cuttlebone is an important dietary supplement for birds because it is a great source of necessary minerals and calcium, which helps birds with bone formation and blood clotting. Cuttlebone is an inexpensive source of calcium carbonate and other trace minerals for your bird.
But what is cuttlebone’ It’s the inside of a cuttlefish, which is a member of the cephalopod family. It’s not really a bone, but the internal shell which has gas-filled internal chambers that keep the cuttlefish afloat and benefits birds due to its high content of calcium, iron to help with red- blood-cell formation, potassium to aid normal heart and muscle activity, zinc which helps with a bird’s immune system and copper to improve its circulation and healing. Cuttlefish is what we call now a superfood.

Hen birds need these nutrients during egg production to help produce thick- shelled eggs. If there is a deficiency in her diet, she will only lay thin-shelled eggs. Cuttlefish is a multi-purpose product as the shell also helps to polish beaks but in addition, is introducing a different texture to the cage.

Cuttlebones are commonly placed in pet bird enclosures for exercise, beneficial nutrients, and grooming. When your bird playfully pecks at its cuttlebone, the “bone” helps polish its beak by removing outer layers, and it even provides a source of calcium when ingested. Cuttlefish can be given to your birds in a couple of different ways. Feed just wedged through the bars of the cage or place in a cuttlefish holder but if neither of these ways work it is suitable just to break off bits of the cuttlebone and sprinkle on top of their food.
It can be feed all year round
