Frozen crickets for insectivorous birds
Crickets are a fundamental food in the diet of insectivorous birds (ideal for swallows, swifts and house martins, etc.). Being rich in proteins, calcium and vitamins, and with a limited amount of fats and calories, they represent a complete food for birds. Thanks to their hard exoskeleton, they have the ability to clean the intestines of young birds, dragging the excess mucus present in the intestine during intestinal transit. The chilling process at low temperatures and freezing almost completely eliminates the microbial load in crickets, making the microbial fraction far below the standards applied to food products for humans and animals. This is periodically verified by analyzes carried out in our laboratories. A further process of sieving removes legs and wings from crickets, which makes them more digestible for your bird friends. The quality of our crickets is guaranteed because they were born and raised in a controlled supply chain, fed with cereal-based feed and specially designed to respect their nutritional needs. Available in one size (sub-adults), they are suitable for birds of any size.
