NEKTON-Breed-Star
Vitamin supplement for breeding birds

Contains 18 amino acids

NEKTON-Breed-Star is a food supplement for birds that is specially developed to help with breeding. It contains all essential vitamins, amino acids, minerals and trace elements. In addition, NEKTON-Breed-Star has a generous amount of vitamin E and essential amino acids, in the ideal ratio to encourage and support breeding activity.

Vitamin E has several functions in animals, but its key function is to protect the cells from oxidative damage - it promotes the protection of cell membranes and the detoxification of pollutants occurring in cell metabolism. It is also involved in cell respiration and thus plays a very important role in energy metabolism. It has also been shown that vitamin E supplementation improves animal fertility (especially sperm quality in males and egg fertility in females) and increases embryo survival and viability of hatched young. Additionally, vitamin E promotes antibody formation and has a positive effect on the immune system. Vitamin E deficiency can cause reduced fertility, sex drive and hatching. Finally, a lack of vitamin E particularly impairs muscle (white muscle disease) and heart functions. NEKTON-Breed-Star increases the often minimal amount of vitamin E in processed bird diets and covers the birds' needs with these nutrients, that are so important for the body.

During breeding, the amino acid requirements of birds increase. NEKTON-Breed-Star contains 18 amino acids, with a high proportion of arginine, lysine, methionine, threonine and tryptophan, which are very important for the bird during breeding. These amino acids are limited, which means they must be supplied in the diet. The addition of these amino acids primarily increases reproductive performance and also counteracts stress factors. They increase egg quality and including egg weight, fertility, odds of having a successful hatch, and can stimulate immune response and alleviate immune stress.

The vitamin content of NEKTON-Breed-Star is tailored to the special needs of birds' during breeding. NEKTON-Breed-Star can prevent damage to the birds' health that can result from a lack of these vital substances. These nutrients support proper metabolism and improve utilization of nutrients in food. This strengthens the bird's immune system and improves performance. It is ideal in combination with NEKTON Calcium plus for balanced breeding and to prevent calcium deficiency (egg breakage / egg quality).

How to feed:

1 g (= 1 level measuring spoon) NEKTON-Breed-Star to 250 ml (8.5oz) water or 100g (3.5oz) of soft food. Administration of NEKTON-Breed-Star should be started at least three weeks before breeding. As soon as the first egg is laid and the female sits on the eggs, no more NEKTON-Breed-Star is given. It could cause disruption in the incubation process due to a drive in the male that is too strong. After completion of the treatment continue with the daily vitamin supply of NEKTON-S and NEKTON-MSA.

Because of this supplement‘s higher content of vitamin D and trace elements than in a complete feed, it may only be added to 2 % of a bird‘s daily ration.

NEKTON-S
Multi-vitamin supplement enriched with amino acids and trace elements for all birds

This essential preparation for all bird species includes vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and trace elements necessary for a long and healthy life. It's strongly recommended to supplement your bird's diet daily to prevent an insufficient intake of these nutrients, as it's usually difficult to detect when birds lack them. In our experience, a significant proportion of diseases in birds stem from inadequate feeding, which results in a lack of nutrients. NEKTON-S is an effective solution to this problem, as it has been successfully used for over 40 years by zoos, animal parks, breeders, and bird enthusiasts.

NEKTON-S provides all essential vitamins and is also enriched with amino acids, minerals, and trace elements. A lack of vitamins (hypovitaminosis) may go unnoticed in birds, but it can lead to severe health problems or even the loss of the animal if left untreated. Inadequate feeding is the root cause of approximately 90% of all bird diseases.

NEKTON-S supports the bird's metabolic processes and improves the utilization of all ingested nutrients. It has been extremely successful worldwide for over 40 years and is administered daily through drinking water. Birds love it, and it's an excellent combination with NEKTON-MSA (mineral preparation) and NEKTON-E (for breeding).

How to feed:

1g (0.035 oz) of NEKTON-S to 250ml (8.45 fl.oz.) of water or 100g (3.53 oz) of soft food.
One level measuring spoon (enclosed) corresponds to 1 g (0.035 oz) of NEKTON-S.
Due to the higher content of vitamin D and trace elements compared to complete feeds, this supplementary feed may only be fed to birds up to 5% of the daily ration.

Storage:

NEKTON-S should be stored dry and out of sunlight, between 15° and 25° C (59° and 77° F) DO NOT STORE IN THE FRIDGE!

NEKTON-E
Vitamin E supplement to enhance fertility and breeding in birds & reptiles

NEKTON-E is a high-quality supplement designed to provide the effective and long-lasting vitamin E component, α-Tocopherol.

NEKTON-E plays a vital role in protecting cell membranes, eliminating harmful metabolites, supporting hormone production, and maintaining muscle functions. It is especially beneficial for enhancing animal fertility, improving the survival rate of embryos, and ensuring the viability of young hatchlings. Additionally, NEKTON-E boosts overall cell metabolism, antibody production, strengthens defenses, and positively impacts the immune system.

A little NEKTON-E goes a long way! It can be easily dissolved in water and administered daily through drinking water or mixed with soft feed. NEKTON-E works exceptionally well when combined with NEKTON-S and NEKTON-MSA.

Higher demands for vitamin E arise during periods of stress caused by factors like heat, cold, intestinal parasites, and infectious diseases. Vitamin E is also vital for hormone production, and a deficiency can lead to reduced fertility, sex drive, and hatching capabilities. Moreover, insufficient vitamin E intake can negatively impact muscle and heart functions, as well as the health of the brain, liver, gonads, vascular system, and offspring.

When using NEKTON-E for bird breeding, it is recommended to start using at least three weeks before the breeding process begins. However, it's important to note that once the first egg is laid and the female starts incubating the eggs, NEKTON-E should no longer be given. Excessive amounts of NEKTON-E during incubation can disrupt the process due to excessive male drive.

NEKTON-R
NEKTON-R-BETA
NEKTON-GELB
NEKTON-ORANGE
Vitamin supplements to brighten colours, enhance plumage
and prevent colours fading

Feathers are given their colours by the deposits of carotenoids, red and yellow pigments/lipochromes, found in plants and the fatty tissues of animals. Although the deposits are minute they are spread over the whole surface of the feathers creating the various shades. Carotenoids are the most widely distributed pigments in nature and are found in all parts of plants, even in the green parts, where they are overshadowed by the preponderance of green chlorophyll. An animal’s organism is not capable of synthesising carotenoids itself which means these colour pigments must form part of the dietary intake.


NEKTON-R

Contains 18 amino acids

NEKTON-R is a product that contains all the essential vitamins, amino acids, minerals, trace elements, and a natural colorant in balanced proportions. Its primary purpose is to prevent fading of feather colors and enhance the natural shine and brightness of the bird's entire plumage. This product provides the bird with all the necessary nutrients required during the molting/feathering process, thanks to its vitamin complex.

The colorant used in NEKTON-R is called lipochrome, which is identical to the natural substance and thus safe for birds. In fact, lipochrome is commonly used in the food industry to color food products. Carotenoids are essential for colored feathers, and NEKTON-R contains an optimal level of them.

NEKTON-R should be administered to birds in their drinking water or soft feed from the beginning of molting/feathering until the end of molting, or as soon as the bird's color is fully restored. It is important to note that no other vitamin compounds should be given to the bird while using NEKTON-R.

How to feed:

1g (0.035oz, measuring spoon included) NEKTON-R to 250 ml (8.5oz.) water or 100g (3.4 oz.)soft food. Use only immediately before and during the molt. Do not use with any other vitamin supplements.

NEKTON-GELB
Intensifies the yellow color of feathers as well as supporting bird health, during the molt.

NEKTON-Gelb is a bird supplement that enhances the yellow color of their feathers during molting. It is specifically formulated to maintain the intensity of yellow color and support the bird's health during the strenuous molting season.

The main ingredient of NEKTON-Gelb is ground marigold flowers, which contain pigments that are crucial for vibrant feather color. Feeding experiments have shown that yellow plumage color in birds only occurs when they consume lutein, the main pigment in marigold flowers. Tagetes (marigold), the natural product in NEKTON-Gelb, also contains active ingredients that support feather formation.

NEKTON-Gelb is made with natural components, including pure brewer's yeast and yeast cell walls. Brewer's yeast contains health-promoting nutrients like essential amino acids, B vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and enzymes that are important building blocks for feather formation. It also has a strengthening effect on the bird's immune system and helps support their intestinal flora. NEKTON-Gelb also contains brewer's yeast cell walls, which can promote a balanced intestinal flora, naturally.

NEKTON-Gelb contains 18 amino acids that support plumage formation during the strenuous molting season. To obtain optimal coloration, it is recommended to begin using NEKTON-Gelb at the beginning of molting period, or immediately before.

For a balanced metabolism, a combination of NEKTON-Gelb with NEKTON-Biotin or NEKTON-S is recommended to ensure sufficient vitamins, minerals, and trace elements in the bird's daily diet.

How to feed:

1 to 3 level scoops (spoon included inside bottle) of NEKTON-Gelb per 100 g (3.52 oz) of soft food. It is recommended not to administer NEKTON-Gelb with water, as the preparation contains natural components that are not water-soluble. The additional feeding of NEKTON-Gelb takes place shortly before and during the entire moulting period.

Storage:

Dry, without sunlight, at 59°-77° F (15°-25° C), DO NOT STORE IN THE FRIDGE!

Composition: Marigold flowers (dried and ground), dextrose, brewer's yeast, brewer's yeast cell walls (contains mannan-oligosaccharides and ß-glucans)

Available in 3 sizes: 60g (2.12oz), 140g (4.94oz), 280g (9.88oz)


NEKTON-Orange
Bird supplement with ground marigold to enhance orange feathers.

NEKTON-Orange is a special supplement designed to enhance the orange color of feathers in birds, such as Yorkshire and Norwich canaries. It helps prevent the fading of orange plumage and supports the bird's health during molting season.

Nekton prioritized natural ingredients, when formulating NEKTON-Orange. It contains pure brewer's yeast and yeast cell walls that combine prebiotic and immunostimulating effects with valuable nutrients. Brewer's yeast is especially beneficial because it contains essential amino acids, B vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and enzymes that positively affect the bird's body and help form plumage during molting. Brewer's yeast can also strengthen the bird's immune system and support the intestinal flora.

In addition to brewer's yeast, NEKTON-Orange includes brewer's yeast cell walls that have mannan oligosaccharides (MOS) and beta-glucans, which can have prebiotic effects on the bird's intestinal microflora and promote a balanced gut.

Further information:

Orange canaries come from breeding yellow and red canaries, which deposit yellow and red pigments in their feathers. NEKTON-Orange contains ground marigold blossoms that intensify the yellow color and pigments canthaxantine and beta-carotene that produce the red color, resulting in an intense orange plumage.

Marigolds contain carotenoids, which not only color the plumage but also have physiological effects, such as acting as biological antioxidants or immune boosters. Marigolds also have active ingredients that help form new feathers.

During molting season, birds need individual amino acids to replace feathers properly. NEKTON-Orange contains 18 amino acids to support the formation of new feathers.

To get the best coloring, use NEKTON-Orange at the start of molting season. For a healthy metabolism, we recommend combining NEKTON-Orange with NEKTON-Biotin or NEKTON-S for sufficient vitamins, minerals, and trace elements in their daily diet.

How to feed:

1 to 3 level scoops, with the included measuring spoon of NEKTON-Orange per 100g (3.5oz) soft food. It is recommended not to administer NEKTON-Orange with water, as the preparation contains natural components that are not water-soluble. The additional feeding of NEKTON-Orange takes place shortly before and during the entire molt.

Storage:

NEKTON-Orange should be stored dry and out of sunlight, between 15° and 25° C (59° and 77° F) DO NOT STORE IN THE FRIDGE!

Composition:
Marigold flowers (dried and ground), dextrose, brewer's yeast, brewer's yeast cell walls (contains mannanoligosaccharides and ß-glucans).

NEKTON-BIOTIN (formerly Nekton-Bio)
Supplement to quickly grow bright, strong feathers

Contains 18 amino acids

NEKTON-Biotin helps birds molt smoothly and regrow feathers. It contains all the necessary vitamins, amino acids, minerals, trace elements, and a substantial amount of biotin. NEKTON-Biotin also promotes shiny and healthy feathers in birds. Poor nutrition is often the main cause of plumage damage in birds. A diet rich in protein is crucial for maintaining a beautiful plumage. Birds also need enough vitamins, minerals, and trace elements to keep their metabolism functioning properly. During molting, birds may experience protein deficiency, vitamin and mineral imbalances, which can lead to health issues. NEKTON-Biotin has been specially formulated to address these issues and balance the amino acid ratios, often found to be less than optimal, in plant-based, commercial bird foods. It is recommended not to use any other vitamin supplements while using NEKTON-Biotin. NEKTON-Biotin is easy to administer via drinking water or soft feed because it dissolves quickly in cold water.

How to feed:

To use NEKTON-Biotin, dissolve 1 gram (1 level spoonful of the included spoon) of it in 250 milliliters (8.45 fl. oz.) of water or 100 grams (3.53 oz) of soft food. It's best to prepare only the amount of water or food that the bird will consume in a day and replace it daily. Each enclosed measuring spoon holds 1 gram (0.035 ounces) of NEKTON-Biotin.

For severe plumage damage, you can give a double or triple dose of NEKTON-Biotin until the bird begins forming new feathers. Then switch back to the regular dose until the new feathers are fully formed.

Because NEKTON-Biotin has higher levels of vitamin D and trace elements than complete feeds, it should make up no more than 5% of the bird's daily diet.

Storage:

NEKTON-Biotin should be stored dry and out of sunlight, between 15° and 25° C (59° and 77° F). DO NOT STORE IN THE FRIDGE!

NEKTON-Q
Support for Bird Health during Medication Treatments

NEKTON-Q is specifically designed to aid birds in dealing with the effects of medication treatments, especially those involving injections of antibiotics and sulfonamides. It is particularly effective in addressing hemorrhaging in organs and tissues. By boosting antibody production, NEKTON-Q enhances the bird's defense against infections, improves the condition of epithelial tissue, promotes stable circulation, and enhances blood clotting, which is crucial during antibiotic treatments.

Vitamin A, known as an "epithelial protection vitamin," plays a vital role in improving the functionality and infection defense of various cell structures by increasing antibody production. Vitamin E protects cell membranes, supports proper energy metabolism, and maintains a strong immune system. Vitamin K is essential for maintaining the functionality of the blood clotting system. NEKTON-Q also contains a balanced combination of other vitamins, trace elements, and amino acids that are crucial for intermediate metabolic processes.

It is important to use NEKTON-Q only when necessary during times of illness. No other vitamin compound should be administered alongside it. NEKTON-Q is soluble in water and can be administered daily through drinking water or mixed into soft feed. NEKTON-Q is also beneficial for birds with naturally increased vitamin K requirements, such as fig parrots.

NEKTAR-PLUS
Complete feed for hummingbirds, sunbirds, and butterflies

Contains 18 amino acids

NEKTON-Nektar-Plus is a specially designed food mixture for hummingbirds and other nectar-eating birds. The formula is packed with nutrients and active ingredients that these birds need for optimal health. The carbohydrates in NEKTON-Nektar-Plus mimic the natural nectar found in flowers and provide a source of energy for these animals. This food mixture is also enriched with vitamins, proteins, fats, and trace elements to create a balanced diet that supports the overall well-being of these birds.

To feed the birds, we recommend using our brown Plexiglas drinking tube that's UV-protected. It ensures that the food stays fresh as long as possible (12 to 18 hours) and provides a sloping bottom so that the bird can eat the last bit of food. A 40 ml serving is sufficient for even larger species to receive a full day's worth of nutrition. It's important NEVER to use open food bowls, as they can cause the birds to soil their feathers.

Nekton Nektar-Plus is a food mixture that was originally developed for hummingbirds, but it's also great for other nectar-eating birds, such as sunbirds, honeycreepers, bananaquits, flower piercers and butterflies. It provides the same energy as flower nectar, their preferred food source, and is packed with essential vitamins, protein, fats, trace elements, and minerals to keep them healthy in the long term. Note that the plumage of some birds may fade over time. To avoid this, you can add NEKTON-R for red plumage colors and NEKTON-Gelb for yellow plumage colors to the feed.

How to feed:

For hummingbirds: 13g NEKTON-Nektar-Plus (.45oz, the included 1 measuring spoon filled up to the mark) in 100 ml (3.4oz) of treated, lukewarm 25° C (86° F) water.

NECTAR FEEDERS
Especially designed and constructed with regard to the feeding habits of humming, sun birds and other nectar-feeding birds such as bananaquits.

Made of special-purpose brown plexiglass impervious to ultra-violet rays to protect the nectar solution, NEKTON nectar feeders are especially designed to ensure a bird reaches the very last drop. The bottom of the tube slopes towards the opening and the inside joints are curved so that the bird’s tongue can travel smoothly up the sides of the tube.

The feeder will hold up to 40 ml, big enough to take the daily ration for all sizes of hummers. A measuring scale enables exact dosing for individual birds.
