Feeding Directions 
 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% as fed of their daily intake, 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).  Mazuri® ZuLiFe® Bird Gel Diet may be an additional option.  For other omnivorous species of birds, food items with higher iron concentration may be appropriate.  Consult your avian veterinarian to determine how iron sensitive your species or individual bird may be.

 To switch birds from their current diet to Mazuri® ZuLiFe® Soft-Bill Diet, do a gradual change over.
o Start with 10% Mazuri® ZuLiFe® Soft-Bill Diet and 90% of their original feed.  Each day increase the amount of new feed by 10% and correspondingly decrease the amount of original feed.  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). 

o If the bird loses weight, or if the bird is not consuming the product, offer a 50:50 mix of product and the original feed.  Continue conversion process after bird is stable and starts consuming product.
 This diet is designed for birds after their first molt and not for growing chicks. 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.
