Nekton R Beta 150g. Achieves splendid red coloring through the natural carotenoid Beta-carotene. Especially effective on red parts of colored canaries without affecting yellow plumage.

Feathers are given their colors by the deposits of carotenoids, red and yellow pigments/lipochromes, found in plants and the fatty tissues of animals. Although the deposits are minute they are spread over the whole surface of the feathers creating the various shades. Carotenoids are the most widely distributed pigments in nature and are found in all parts of plants, even in the green parts, where they are overshadowed by the preponderance of green chlorophyll. An animal's organism is not capable of synthesizing carotenoids itself which means these color pigments must form part of the dietary intake.

Ensure your bird is ready for that all-important show or exhibition by adding NEKTON-R-BETA with its 13 vitamins, 6 trace elements, water-soluble calcium, 18 indispensable amino acids and that valuable pro-vitamin and carotenoid Beta-carotene.

This depends on the desired color intensity. In general 1 g NEKTON-R-BETA to approx. 1/2 pint water can be taken as a guide.

As a service to our customers a measuring spoon holding 1 g is enclosed. Using this spoon, this means 2 spoonfuls to approx. 1 pint water. If you have only one or two birds, pierce small hole in the seal and shake a little into drinking water or over soft feed. Use fresh food or fresh water only every time.

General Guide:
1/4 teaspoon to half a pint of water
1/2 teaspoon (flat) to 1 pint water
1 tablespoon to 1 gallon water

Please note: 1 cup = 8 fl. oz.
2 cups = 1 pint
