A few tips from us…

Birds

As Winter is just around the corner, your bird is working on developing a healthy bloom and plumage. 
In order to help it get the best head-start, we suggest focusing on it’s dietary needs and adding vitamins as needed.

Our Gold’N’Fruit Condition Food is a fantastic and tasty way for you to introduce the added vitamins and minerals your bird needs. It’s also great in aiding the development of healthy body tissue in chicks!

Cats & Dogs

Have you noticed your pets’ coat becoming a lot thicker? 
As we move into colder months our amazing adaptive animals are putting on their winter coats.

For this to happen however, their summer coats need to move out of the way! This means moulting. Brushing your animal at this time of year can help thier new coat come in and flourish, as well as allowing you to keep their moulted hair from getting all around the house!

Poultry

As winter comes around the corner you might notice a drop in egg production, this might mean that your chickens are moulting! During this time, all of your chickens’ energy is going to ensuring their feathers are replaced to keep them thermoregulated amongst the the heat changes of the seasons. 
This gives them a well-deserved break, and you can help them rejuvenate during this period by making sure they have quality feed.
