Calcium for Nesting Birds

Being Seasonally Savvy: Give Nesting Birds a Hand

Calcium is the most challenging mineral for birds because when they need it, they need large quantities and they need it right away. This is mainly during nesting time for egg laying ans well as chick development. The amount of calcium in their natural diet of seeds and insects is often inadequate and they must seek calcium-rich foods as a supplement. Ask us about the many bird foods we offer which include calcium to help your nesting birds

Our source of calcium is from oyster grit or limestone dust. Both are finely ground and easily consumed by small songbirds. 

Be a seasonally savvy friend to your birds by providing them with the extra calcium they require during nesting season.
