NEKTON-Orange is a bird food supplement that is specially developed for orange-colored canaries (such as Yorkshire and Norwich) to intensify color in orange areas of the feathers.

NEKTON-Orange prevents feather colors from fading and can help naturally support bird health during the molting period.

Orange canaries resulted from a cross between yellow and red canaries and keep the yellow xanthophyll lutein and red canthaxanthin together in the feather.

NEKTON-Orange contains ground marigold flowers, which intensify the yellow basic color of the orange canaries and the dyes canthaxanthin & beta-carotene, which produce the red plumage. This creates an intense orange plumage in canaries.

Tagetes (marigold) is a natural product that contains various carotenoids that are of vital importance for the color in feathers. Carotenoids are not only known for their coloring effect, they are also have physiological effects (as biological antioxidants or immunostimulatory effects). Tagetes also contains active ingredients that are involved in the formation of new feathers.

In order to increase the quality of NEKTON-Orange, we focused on valuable natural ingredients.

NEKTON-Orange contains pure brewer's yeast & yeast cell walls. This combination has the advantages of the prebiotic and immunostimulatory effects of yeast cell walls, with valuable nutrients in brewer's yeast.

Brewer's yeast is one of the most valuable products of all because it is a combination of health-promoting nutrients. These include essential amino acids (such as methionine, which is particularly important for birds), B vitamins, various minerals, trace elements and enzymes. The nutrients contained in the brewer's yeast have a positive effect on the bird's systems and is important for growing new feathers, which are increasingly needed during molting. Brewer's yeast can strengthen the bird's immune system and help support the intestinal flora.

In addition to brewer's yeast, NEKTON-Orange contains brewer's yeast cell walls, which consist of mannan oligosaccharides (MOS) and beta-glucans. These ingredients can have prebiotic effects on the beneficial microflora of the intestine and naturally promote a balanced intestinal flora.

The need for individual amino acids during the moult is especially high. Without enough amino acids in the diet, delays in feather replenishment and problems with feather development can occur (such as, for example, curved or very soft feathers). NEKTON-Orange contains 18 amino acids, which can support the formation of new plumage during the strenuous moulting period.

In order to obtain an optimal coloring, NEKTON-Orange should be used several weeks before the beginning of the molt.

A daily diet must contain sufficient vitamins, minerals and trace elements for proper metabolic function and therefore a combination of NEKTON-Orange with NEKTON-Biotin / NEKTON-S is recommended.

Feeding Recommendation:

1 to 3 level measuring spoons of NEKTON-Gelb with 100 g soft food. It is advisable not to administer NEKTON-Gelb with water, as the supplement contains natural components that are not water-soluble. NEKTON-Gelb is administered shortly before and during molting.

Storage: NEKTON-Gelb should be stored dry and out of sunlight, between 15° and 25°C. DO NOT STORE IN THE FRIDGE!!! Keep away from children
