Choose Exact for exact nutrition in every bite.
Feed Exact Original every day in a clean food cup following guidelines below. Adjust to the bird's actual needs and spillage. Provide a clean, fresh supply of water daily.
Macaw: 1/2 to 1 cup
Cockatoo: 1/2 to 1 cup
Amazon: 1/2 cup
African Grey: 1/2 cup
Eclectus: 1/2 cup
Pionus: 1/3 cup
Conure: 1/3 cup
Exact Original is designed to be the bird's sole diet. Limit additional foods such as fresh fruits, vegetables, or other treats to 20% of the bird's total diet. When used as directed, no additional vitamin or mineral supplements are recommended.
Converting to Exact Original
If your bird is not familiar with a processed food, use one of the three following conversion methods. Watch your bird closely during any conversion method to insure it is receiving the right amount of food.
If any problems result, or if your bird is being extremely difficult to convert, return to the previous step in the conversion process. After approximately seven days, continue with the conversion process.
This method is recommended since it is fast and safe for all healthy birds. Phase Exact into your bird's daily diet by mixing it with the current seed diet. Best results are achieved when you limit the total quantity of food available to match the suggested daily feeding amount.
Day 1 - 3: one part Exact/three parts current food
Day 4 - 8: two parts Exact/two parts current food
Day 9 - 14: three parts Exact/one part current food
After 14 Days: Feed Exact only--your bird should be completely converted.
Free Choice Method
This method is the simplest but takes the longest time since the bird is given more opportunity to select its familiar food. Follow instructions for the Portions Method, but provide more than the recommended daily amount.
After 14 days, continue for another two weeks by putting Exact in the bottom of the cup. Sprinkle a small amount of the current food (about 10%) on top. Gradually reduce the amount of current food or offer it on alternate days. This method is very easy on the bird since the bird is able to choose what it eats and slowly adapt to the new diet.
Within one month, even the most difficult bird can be converted with this method.
This method works best with young birds and those accustomed to a widely varied diet. Sudden food changes may be refused by finicky eaters and may be dangerous to birds which are not healthy. Observe your bird closely when using this method. Check its body weight or breast muscle size to watch for weight loss. If your bird loses over 10% of its body weight, provide a mixture of current food and Exact for about three days before returning exclusively to Exact.
