Daily usual diet.....what you birds should ALWAYS be getting.............every day especially leading up to breeding well in advance of breeding so they are in peak condition. Good quality seed, fruit and vegies by the bucketload, natural branches like gum and peppermint tree, soft food or soaked seed, mashed boiled egg with crushed eggshells, calcium ( liquid calcium in water, or calcium blocks or both as some dont like one or the other....dont just rely on cuttlebone as many birds just play with cuttlebone ). All this should not be a last minute thought....it should be their constant everyday diet and more so while breeding.

Dont rely on "magic" instant vitamin supplements just because they are about to have eggs.

My diet does not change the birds in the flights recieve exactly the same as the breeders. So I guess I agree with KAZ.
