To Supplement Naturally Available Foods

Birds are incredibly active. They spend a significant proportion of daylight hours foraging and searching for food. If natural food sources are low, there is a potential for birds to become malnourished. Peckish range of wild bird food, together with Calvita supplement, helps to keep wild birds strong and healthy.

Calcium for Eggs and Bones

It’s important that wild birds receive the right amount of calcium in order for them to stay strong and have healthy bones, but also in order to produce healthy eggs. Birds egg shells are made almost entirely from calcium, this means that calcium is an essential requirement for reproductive success.
