Nekton R is a highly effective food additive designed to intensify the red coloring of feathers and encourage feather growth in pet birds. It contains the carotenoid Canthaxanthin, which preserves and enhances red plumage and deepens other colors. For example, you can put this supplement on your canary's food and expect to see the deep yellow colors you would find on a canary in the natural habitat. Birds are not able to synthesize carotenoids, so the color pigments must be provided as a part of the bird's diet. Nekton-R also provides vital vitamins and minerals, trace elements, amino acids, and calcium to maintain health and vigor.

Nekton R boosts red colors in the plumage of goldfinches, red canaries, painted buntings, crossbills, red siskins, sun birds, cardinals, ibises, and other birds that produce cartenoid in their feathers.

This depends on the desired intensity of the colouring. Suggested feeding is 1 g NEKTON-R to 1/4 liter lukewarm water, as a guide. The enclosed measuring spoon holds 1g. Using this spoon, this means 1 spoonful to approx. 1/2 pint water, which will cover the daily needs of 10 small birds. Stir again after adding powder. If you have only one or two birds, pierce small hole in the seal and shake a little into drinking water or over the soft feed.

General Guide:

  • 1/2 teaspoon (flat) to 1 pint water
  • 1/2 teaspoon (flat) to 1 pint water
  • 1/2 teaspoon (flat) to 1 pint water
