Insect & Meat Eaters

Insectivores and Carnivores eat a range of animal foods including insects, meat & fish. These birds obtain most of their energy from dietary protein, so should not be fed large amounts of carbohydrate (sugar or starches). Species in this category include magpies, ravens, kookaburras, kingfishers, birds of prey, waders & seabirds. Small insectivorous softbills kept as aviary birds include robins, whistlers, chats, wrens & woodswallows.

We make Insectivore Rearing Mix, which is a balanced high protein diet for rearing or supplementing insectivorous or carnivorous birds. Also available is Finch Soft Food which can be used to boost the protein content in the diet of breeding birds and softbills. Insect Booster is used to improve the nutritional value of insects fed to birds.
