At present many bird handles we do not know how to use minerals for birds and also do not attach importance to it. That is a very wrong way of thinking.

Because the physical decline of each bird will depend on time and is often very slow, therefore, most bird handlers do not recognize it and do not know it is due to bird illness. Birds live outside nature, they eat a lot of food and adjust their own food. But when they live in captivity, no matter how hard it is for a bird farmer, it can not be compared to when it lives freely outside. This leads to a lack of nutrients in the bird’s daily diet.

Since 1817, French scholar Louis Vieillot has noticed that there are some birds in the house such as Garrulax canorus bird, Kanari Hemiprocnidae, Alaudidae bird … after a few years of children have fallen to death. Later, he learned that domestic birds were often deficient in micronutrients so that their health gradually deteriorated. At some point, they had a stroke due to heart failure, respiratory failure, mental disorders due to calcium deficiency. Later, Dr. PaulWalton of the Royal Scottish Bird Conservation Society affirmed that Louis Vieillot’s position was correct. As a result, people started to recommend the addition of micronutrients to birds in captivity in cages.

It is a pity that people knows the use of minerals, but they kept secret not widely for everyone to know.
