Hormova Colourant

Following enquiries from Petlife (Harkers) in the United Kingdom, it has been established (for the benefit of all fanciers using their great product “Hormova” for breeding budgerigars) that the normal red colourant is now not available.

Consequently the white appearance that is to be seen is still just the same base material and content, but is simply no longer coloured.

Hormova is a very special feed supplement, which has been specifically formulated to provide all the necessary vitamins, minerals and trace elements to keep your cage birds in perfect condition.

Hormova contains the complete vitamin B complex as well as many other important ingredients.

    I have just started using my first colourant-free batch of Hormova.

    If the colourant is the only element removed, why do my birds not go for it with the same vigour?

    Also, in my opinion, the texture has completely changed.

    On examining the label, the ingredients of both types are exactly the same.

    Should the colourant not have been listed on the previous containers?

    Probably questions for the manufacturer – but I wondered if others had noticed any difference in the birds taking the new version?

  2. Hi Roy,

    I have used Hormova for a long time and I have also noticed that the birds don’t like the “new” powder compared to the “old” one.

    Perhaps this is something we should all report back to the manufacturer?
