Daily Feeding InstructionsFeed Exact Rainbow 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.Parakeet: 2 tablespoonsLovebird: 3 tablespoonsQuaker (Monk Parrot): 4 tablespoonsSmall Conure: 4 tablespoonsExact Rainbow 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 RainbowWhen changing to a new food or diet, some coaxing and a little time is required for the bird to adjust. 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 - 3: one part Exact/three parts current foodDay 4 - 8: two parts Exact/two parts current foodDay 9 - 14: three parts Exact/one part current foodAfter 14 Days: Feed Exact only--your bird should be completely converted.Observe your bird closely to insure 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 the adequate conversion, or have any questions regarding the conversion process, call the Kaytee Helpline toll-free 1-800-KAYTEE1.Important NotesWhen more than one bird is kept in a cage, monitor birds very closely to assure all are eating adequately. Extending the conversion process an additional seven days is recommended.Small birds should be monitored closely during the conversion process. If the bird becomes listless, sits with its feathers fluffed, or loses weight, it may not be consuming enough food. If these signs occur, immediately provide the old food and a mixture of equal parts Exact and the old food (in separate dishes) until the bird returns to normal activity (approximately three days). At this time, remove the dish of the old food and continue the conversion process.Initial acceptance of Exact can be improved by moistening with fruit juice. Be sure to remove uneaten portion within four hours to prevent spoilage.The color of droppings may not be consistent, but they should be well formed.Storage InstructionsFor maximum freshness, store in a cool dry location. Reseal between use. Refrigerate or freeze for extended use.
