PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

VVRS OSTRICH STARTER is a balanced feed suitable for growing ostrich chicks from day old through to approximately 6 weeks of age. VVRS OSTRICH STARTER contains quality ingredients to ensure chicks’ acceptance and performance.

This feed is the first stage in a 2 stage feeding programme for growing ostriches. It is produced in a fine crumble form so that feed wastage is minimised, digestibility is improved and that a consistent intake of nutrients is achieved (Note: there is no separation with crumbles).

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

• Environmental conditions including temperature and hygiene are of vital importance during the rearing period.

• Chicks should have unlimited access to the crumbles. Offer a small amount of lucern hay or chaff to the chicks, up to a minimum of 10% of the total feed intake.

• Feed intakes will vary with the season, variety of housing conditions, disease status and other environmental conditions.

• For the first 2 days of feeding it is best to spread some feed on trays or newspaper to enable all birds access.
