RIO Sepia shell or cuttlefish bone is the cleaned, desalinated and dried oval-shaped internal shell of a cuttlefish. It consists of more than 85% of easily absorbable calcium in its natural bioavailable form.
Sepia shell is an essential supplement for all types of pet birds: it contains calcium and other mineral substances, which aid in strengthening the birds’ beak, bones and plumage, as well as in increasing the eggshells’ density. It's important to offer sepia shell to birds during egg-laying, fledging and moulting. Sepia shell helps the birds to groom and polish their beaks in a gentle way due to its mildly abrasive texture. In addition, sepia shell nipping stimulates natural behaviour and fills the birds’ life with joy and playtime.
The medium-sized Sepia shell (M) is perfect for budgies, parakeets and small birds.
