If you want your aviary to sing with health, the feathers to shine with vitality, the hens to thrive when laying and the young to grow robustly then balance the iodine, iron, calcium and Vitamin D intake.
The vitamin D in Ioford is of special relevance to the birds bred indoors.

See video below on how to use Ioford
Iodine is the most important trace element for a good moult and for successful breeding,
but in overdose retards the thyroid gland and therefore depresses breeding performance and retards the moult.
Many breeders use iodine and iron but very few if any know the exact requirements for their birds.
An overdose of iron damages the liver. Iron given at the correct levels enhances health and accelerates the recovery from stress or illness.
It is also necessary for the young developing aviary birds when the nutritional requirements for moulting and muscle development are complex and demanding.
Ioford intensifies the colours and brightens the white of exhibition birds
The iron in Ioford intensifies the colour of blues, greys, grey-greens and gives a vivid white on the head and wings.
The iron also enhances health and accelerates the recovery from the stress of breeding, moulting and the shows.
Ioford is used to improve fertility and egg quality during the breeding season
The iodine in Ioford is an essential trace element beneficial for fertility, feather growth and overall health and vitality.
The vitamin D and magnesium in the Ioford increase breeding performance by allowing the hens to absorb calcium from the other foods and supplements in it’s diet, improves feather quality and helps to prevent egg binding, soft shelled eggs, egg laying paralysis and pipping deaths.
Iron is needed for blood cell production in the growing babies. Iodine stimulates reproduction, growth and fertility in the adults and stimulates feather production in the youngsters.
The magnesium and vitamin D are balanced scientifically to provide the hen with the exact proportions for the production of perfect eggs and continuing good health.
Ioford for young and moulting birds
Ioford accelerates the moult and development of young birds.
Iodine is the most important trace element for a good moult, because it stimulates the thyroid gland to produce the hormones,
which control the speed of the moult. The zinc in Ioford is used to stimulate the immune system of the developing youngster.
This promotes a strong natural resistance in the youngster during this critical developmental age.
The vitamin and magnesium are all involved in improving the feather quality and feather strength during the moult.
Ioford stimulates the healthy show bird into peak condition by show
Ioford is given for three days prior to the show to energise and invigorate the show bird for the very best performance on the day of competition. On show day the bird is alert and keen to perform.
