waterfowl (showing and breeding)

In order to ensure that some species continue, breeding is necessary. Breeding is also important for everyone who wants to show their waterfowl at exhibitions. Garvo gladly supports the waterfowl lovers in the preservation of these wonderful animals with a series of balanced feeds, year-round and for each moment. The health of the parent animals and the quality of the hatching eggs determine the ideal development and outcome of the eggs and the vitality of the chicks the first days of their lives. The chicks need to be able to stand strong on their legs immediately! Furthermore, a uniform development of the whole chick is important. The animals need appropriate basic feed year-round. You achieve good results with 816 waterfowl condition/show pellet, a pellet which keeps waterfowl in condition all year long and through which they can effortlessly perform during the breeding period and, if need be, during the showing period. As preparation for the breeding time there’s 803 waterfowl breeder pellet and for the young ducklings there’s 805 waterfowl starter minipellet. For diving ducks and seaducks, which eat a lot of fish (protein) in the wild, Garvo has special sorts of floating and other protein-rich feed.

feeding advice

in general
  • feed the pellets preferably on land in a shallow bowl or feeder
  • make sure all the waterfowl can peacefully eat and make several feeding sites if necessary
  • feed preferably twice a day, to prevent the pellets from becoming moist and mouldy
  • make sure all the waterfowl have access to clean water. If necessary, provide drinking bowls, separate from the pond water
  • give year-round 816 waterfowl condition/show pellet as basic feed, and if the density of the plumage demands extra attention
breeding
  • about 8 weeks before brooding switch over to 803 waterfowl breeder pellet so that the animals lay enough well-fertilized hatching eggs
  • give waterfowl babies / ducklings and goslings from day 1 till about the 12th week 805 waterfowl starter minipellet. This small pellet ensures a uniform development of the whole duckling
  • switch over afterwards to 816 waterfowl condition/show pellet
swans, geese and ducks
  • 831 duck and goose pellet basic is for ducks and breeds of swans and geese which easily achieve good hatching results
  • give 816 waterfowl condition/show pellet year-round as maintenance feed to ducks and geese by which the reproduction process is more difficult, plus to swans
diving ducks and seaducks
  • feed diving ducks and seaducks on the water year-round 4222 waterfowl floating pellet 19
  • feed 4223 waterfowl floating pellet 30 with its high protein content on the water
