***Please note that the manufacturers of this product in the USA are in the process of changing the formula. While they are working on this they are not supplying the original product. We have no date for the new version to come into stock. Apologies for this but once our current stock is sold out there will be a time lag which is beyond our control.
Perle Morbide Fruits is a welcome substitute for fruits and berries for fruit-eating birds such as Zosterops, Bulbuls, Pekin Robins, Starling, Thrushes, Tanagers and even Roul Roul Partridges.
Fruit and vegetable ingredients include: corn, ground wheat, ground oat, soy concentrate, corn gluten meal, coconut oil, soybean oil, potato protein, raisins, coconut, papaya, apricot, banana, sweet potatoes, pineapple, apple, spinach, broccoli, carrots and dates.
The product is mixed with water in the ratio 1 to 2 and swells to a soft berry-like pellet. It can be served alone or mixed in with other fruits or softfoods. It can be fed freely throughout the year.
We find our frugivore softbill birds adore these fruits and feel that for Zosterops – for example – it encourages natural feeding instincts.
