Insectivore Paste

Insectivorous birds include the Japanese nightingale, the blackbird and the blackcap and, in their natural habitat, they basically feed on fruit and insects.  In captivity, therefore, they require food that is in line with their original feeding, such as the ICA insectivore paste.ICA offers three varieties: insectivore paste, insectivore paste with fruit and paste pellets.delicatessen_ica1delicatessen_ica2  

Rearing Paste and Formulas

These are essential during bird rearing periods, as they provide an extra energy supplement. They are, however, also highly recommended during periods of moulting.The red formula is an essential supplement for the red canary, as it is based on compounds that provide its reddish colour. In the wild, these birds feed off seeds that give them this colour and the ICA red rearing paste provides the necessary components for rearing in captivity.Another great new product in the new Delicatessen line is the inclusion of the rearing formula for all bird types (hand-reared birds such as canaries, parakeets, blackbirds, nightingales, parrots, etc.).delicatessen_ica3delicatessen_ica4

Breeding season

The Canary breeding season begins
The breeding of canaries, exotic birds and parakeets is extremely widespread in the Canary Islands, with the period from December to June being the most favourable for this exciting hobby.
First steps
The breeding season is beginning. This is not a precise month, with some breeders preferring to start in December whereas others wait until January. Mating should not, however, take place during the summer months which is when they moult.An initial step involves choosing the parents correctly, considering the variety of canary sought. It is most commonplace to choose canaries that are as similar as possible for breeding, thus getting the best of both of them. Remember that they must be at least 9 months old. 
Create the right conditions
A few weeks beforehand, place the parents in the same cage with a separator between them so that they can adapt to each other.Breeding cages are extremely useful for this, as they are very large and are already fitted with these separators.Breeding cages are the right size and include the necessary accessories
cria_canarios3Food is important at this time, as well as vitamin supplements such as DF3301 to stimulate singing, which ensures the male canary attracts the female.The female makes the nest, which is why straw (PELOTEG and PELOTEP), nests and straw holders are often provided. 
Crucial moment: mating and breeding
When the separator is lifted, the two birds may not be adapted to each other and breeding might not take place, so pay special attention.Once the eggs have been laid, they are incubated for around 13 days during which time you must pay attention to the males, as they can cause damage to the eggs if they are on heat in their attempt to approach the female.From the time they leave the egg, the chicks do not leave the next for around 20 days and do not eat by themselves for around one month. This is considered the ideal time for the chick to be put with other canaries.And the cycle begins again, so a breeding couple can lay around 4 times a year. cria_canarios2

VIT and VIT Pro seeds

We have just launched our new line of mixes and feed VIT and VIT PRO onto the market and, due to their great popularity, we can say that they are a great success. They have become one of the most complete lines in the market, with new formulas, in a much more modern format, packed in compliance with the highest standards of hygiene and world-class quality.
Reasons for success of the VIT and VIT Pro lines
1. – All of the innovations in technology and automation in our facilities enable us to produce an end product with the best quality, cleanness (cleaned up to 6 times!) and presentation and, given that all of these processes are completed in our facilities, we are able to offer the best PRICE-QUALITY ratio in the market.
We have obtained mixes and seeds with the best PRICE-QUALITY ratio in the market.  
2. The seeds and feed are unloaded into an external silo and travel in elevators and along conveyor belts to reach the first cleaning machine where they are cleaned three times before going to the storage tanks. They are then weighed, mixed and recleaned up to another 3 times in another fines cleaning machine to remove any final impurities that they may contain. 3. Lastly, the end product is packed in a machine with a capacity of 10,000,000 kg/year and with the latest packing technology, “Controlled Atmosphere” and, in the case of the VIT Pro line, with zipper closure on each bag (can be resealed once opened).
