HOW OUR PRODUCTS CAN HELP YOU

OUR PRODUCTS AND AVIAN CARE

These aspects are:

Nutrition

This nutritional imbalance can cause minor ailments, but can also bring about fatal diseases. Birds fed on an inadequate diet may survive, but they certainly will not thrive.

Harrison's Bird Foods have been scientifically formulated to provide all the nutrients a bird needs. A seed only diet, for example, lacks 32 essential vitamins and minerals - Harrison's provides these with no need for additional supplementation. This means no need for powders or drops where the level of uptake by the bird may be random and/or unknown. Indeed, the natural vitamins and minerals in Harrison's are scientifically controlled at the optimal level for your bird's health and needs and the addition of further supplements will unbalance this and may be harmful.

So, why choose Harrison's over other brands? Chemical insecticides, herbicides and fungicides, artificial preservatives, colourings, sweeteners and flavourings can all be harmful to a bird's health. Harrison's diets contain none of these and are 100% organic. The ingredients are all premium whole grains, approved for human consumption and certified organic by the US Department of Agriculture.

Biosecurity

But not only that, the product you use must not be harmful to the bird, nor should it damage the cage, toys etc.

It is available in a range of forms that cover all aspects of your hygiene routine. It comes as a basic disinfectant (F10SC) for washing their bowls and toys, with an added detergent (F10SCXD) for cleaning the cage and hard surfaces, as a range of hand decontaminants so that you do not pass anything on to the bird when you handle them (the F10 Gel, Foam, Scrub or Wipes) - everything you need is covered and as it is a highly concentrated solution a little goes a long way, making it highly cost effective.

Lighting

Domestic lighting, and sunlight that has passed through a window pane, does not contain the UV that birds require for good physical and mental health. The UV is needed for the efficient synthesis of vitamins and inadequate levels of UV can lead to bone disorders. It also affects the hormone levels in the body, which can affect the bird's mood and behaviour.

Arcadia Lighting is specifically designed to provide birds with the optimal levels of UV to stimulate the physiological process that they need for optimal health, as well as allowing optimal vision which will encourage good mental health.
