Extruded diets have been proven to provide superior nutrition when compared with seed blends. The difficulty is converting a bird on a seed mix to an extruded or processed food. Exact Conversion & Weaning improves the initial acceptance when introducing an extruded food, and is the easiest way to convert your bird from a seed or other diet to Exact nutrition.
This complete diet provides premium daily nutrition for Macaws, Cockatoos, African Greys, all Parrots, Eclectus, Pionus, and large Conures. Exact Conversion & Weaning combines the highest quality ingredients with necessary nutrients to produce an enticing rainbow of colors. Each nugget contains exact nutrition ensuring your bird gets exactly the right nutrition to produce better feathering, brighter colors, and maintain excellent health. No shells or hulls means there will be less mess in and around your cage and more time for you to enjoy your bird's company.
Crunchy, easy to eat texture, high nutritional content, and compatibility with Exact Hand Feeding Formula makes it an excellent weaning food.
Daily Feeding Instructions
Feed Exact Conversion & Weaning 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 to 1 1/2 cups
Cockatoo: 3/4 to 1 1/4 cups
Amazon: 3/4 cup
African Grey: 3/4 cup
Eclectus: 3/4 cup
Pionus: 1/2 cup
Conure: 1/2 cup
Exact Conversion & Weaning 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.
With time, it is recommended to transition your bird's diet to an adult maintenance form of Exact Rainbow, Exact Original, or Exact Organic. Birds should convert easily because of the compatible textures, tastes, and ingredients they have become familiar with in Exact Conversion & Weaning.
Converting to Exact Conversion & Weaning
Converting from another extruded diet: Mix the two diets together and over the course of one week, slowly eliminate the old food. This will help avoid the possibility of digestive upsets that may occur.
Converting from a seed-based diet: Some coaxing and a little time is required for the bird to adjust to the new food type. Although an immediate conversion is possible, it is recommended to slowly introduce Exact into your bird's diet by mixing it with the old food as directed below. For best results, limit the quantity of food available to the suggested feeding amount.
Day 1 - 7: one part Exact/three parts current food
Day 8 - 14: two parts Exact/2 parts current food
Day 15 - 21: three parts Exact/one part current food
After 21 Days: Feed Exact only--your bird should be completely converted.
Observe your bird closely to ensure it is eating Exact and not searching for its old food. A change in the color of droppings (to a brown or reddish-brown color) should be evident with successful conversion.
Conversion time may vary. If you are unsure of adequate conversion, or have any questions regarding the conversion process, call the Kaytee Helpline toll-free 1-800-KAYTEE1.
