Bee Pollen for Birds
WHY FEED BEE POLLEN TO YOUR BIRDS?
“Bee pollen is a whole food supplement…that contains at least 130 substances of nutritional significance. The high quality of protein exceeds the amount in beef or chicken. Bee pollen is composed of about 50% carbohydrates, rich in fatty acids, almost all known minerals, amino acids, enzymes, trace elements, vitamins like B complex, A,C,D, E, beta carotene, an antibiotic potent against E. coli.
Feeding bee pollen prevents nutritional imbalance, deficiencies, accumulations of toxins in the body, and helps strengthen the immune system and prevent disease…it is the richest food in nature.” – Gudrun Maybaum, author of “What Happened to My Peanuts”, holistic avian nutritionist

It has a mildly sweet and floral taste that is readily accepted and enjoyed. It is human grade, and therefore an be enjoyed by you as well! Take it plain, sprinkled on top of yogurt, or add to smoothies!
Bee Pollen works in conjunction with the sprouted, soaked, or cooked mashes you provide to trigger breeding hormones in your pairs. The protein, healthy oils and vitamins in the bee pollen increase the health and vigor of the birds, which in turn makes them more ready, willing and able to raise young. The spike in nutrition helps to mimic the wet “fertile” season they would encounter in the wild at breeding time.
This natural powerhouse food can be offered year-round, and to non-breeding birds.
If you wish to breed your birds, daylight hours in excessive of 12 hours per day is generally the trigger point, accompanied by increased calcium uptake, sprouted, soaked or fresh foods, a bump in protein and accompanied by the addition of a nestbox.
