You know your bird loves to peck and chew at cuttlebones and on similar mineral-rich surfaces, but did you know that she is instinctively chewing at minerals in order to provide herself with the nutrients she needs?

Calcium is one of the most prevalent minerals in the avian body. Birds require calcium to develop and maintain strong beaks, feathers, and bones, and calcium is also used in the blood clotting process and to produce strong eggshells.

Calcium perches and mineral blocks deliver a safe source of this important mineral. Plus, these products provide outlets for healthy, natural chewing behaviors while keeping bird beaks well-trimmed.
