Composition & Nutrient Deficiencies In Seeds

For many years wild bird food products were grown under more natural conditions. Today’s modern farming techniques require the use of hybrids for expanded production and resistance to mold, fungus and drought. These hybrids often lack key nutrients needed by birds for health, growth and reproduction.

3-D® Pet Products for wild birds have been formulated with added nutrients to help ensure that birds and other wildlife maintain high levels of health. The following nutrients are added to many of 3-D® Pet Products blends:

– Vitamin A (growth, reproduction, feathering)
– Vitamin D (proper bone development)
– Vitamin E (reproduction, bone development)
– Riboflavin (central nervous system)
– Vitamin B12 (growth, digestion, oxygen in blood)
– Thiamin (enhanced blood formation)
– Niacin (blood circulation, central nervous system)
– Choline Chloride (liver functions)
– Pyridoxine (nervous system, fat absorption)
– Biotin (cell growth)
– Folic Acid (red blood cells)
– Vitamin C (tissue growth)
– Manganese (works with B-Complex Vitamins)
– Iron (red blood cells)
– Copper (formation of blood and tissue)
– Calcium (eggshell quality, grit)
– Zinc (growth, reproduction, feathering)
– Magnesium (enzyme activity)
– Phosphorus (bone development)
– Lysine (promotes growth)
– Methionine (feathering, reproduction)
– Potassium Chloride and Sodium Bicarbonate (help retain body fluids)
