Birds need the calcium for feather growth, bones and to form the shell during egg laying. Many birds are grouchy if lacking calcium. This form gives easy access to the bird as it needs it. A must for egg laying birds especially. But should be offered to all birds as the minerals it contains are essential. Some birds never touch it but when the need arises those birds instinctively eat it. So don't worry if it seems they don't use it as it should be available for when they do need it. Many birds that eat a variety of greens and fruits require less as supplemental. That's why a lot of smaller birds that don't like their veggies always use their cuttle bones.

So be sure to keep one in the cage at all times. During a moult, egg laying and growing the bird will go to it.

Pros: easy access to minerals your bird needs especially during egg laying

Cons: The fastener fails many times.

A must-have!

posted 6 years ago

Cuttlebones are a must-have for your bird. They benefit from the minerals, while keeping their beak properly trimmed. It also seems to keep your bird entertained.

The only problem I've encountered is that the metal bracket/cuttlebone sometimes comes apart. Pretty minor problem, and can usually be fixed.

Pros: Works well

Cons: None, really

Good affordable asset to health!

posted 6 years ago

Calcium is an important mineral for all birds, but this is a great way to give a boost for your small parrots, especially females during egg laying. The issue I found is the metal braces are easily ruined by even small birds, however a millet clip is an easy replacement and works just as well!

Pros: easy way to give calcium

Cons: the holders are easy to remove, even for cockatiels

Great for turtles too!

posted 6 years ago

This is a great source of calcium for aquatic turtles also but you have to peal off the glue backing because this can be harmful to the turtles. However, my turtles love it!

Pros: healthy

Cons: none

I have 3 cats and they love this food. They eat less and walk away with a full belly. Eating less means pooping less and less litter. All around a great choice for my cats.
