Complete feed for hummingbirds, sunbirds, and butterflies
Contains 18 amino acids
NEKTON-Nektar-Plus is a specially designed food mixture for hummingbirds and
other nectar-eating birds. The formula is packed with nutrients and active
ingredients that these birds need for optimal health. The carbohydrates in
NEKTON-Nektar-Plus mimic the natural nectar found in flowers and provide a
source of energy for these animals. This food mixture is also enriched with
vitamins, proteins, fats, and trace elements to create a balanced diet that
supports the overall well-being of these birds.
To feed the birds, we recommend using our brown Plexiglas drinking tube
that's UV-protected. It ensures that the food stays fresh longer (12 - 18 hours)
and provides a sloping bottom so that the bird can eat the last bit of food. A
40 ml serving is sufficient for even larger species to receive a full day's
worth of nutrition. It's important NEVER to use open food bowls, as they can
cause the birds to soil their feathers.
Nekton Nektar-Plus is a food mixture that was originally developed for
hummingbirds, but it's also great for other nectar-eating birds, such as
sunbirds, honeycreepers, bananaquits, flower piercers and butterflies. It
provides the same energy as flower nectar, their preferred food source, and is
packed with essential vitamins, protein, fats, trace elements, and minerals to
keep them healthy in the long term. Note that the plumage of some birds may fade
over time. To avoid this, you can add NEKTON-R for red plumage colors and
NEKTON-Gelb for yellow plumage colors to the feed.
