Most Bird Fanciers mix a little water with EMP until a soft, crumbly, pleasant smelling mixture is obtained. Do not use too much water. However, many Fanciers have their own preferred method of feeding EMP e.g. dry or with grated carrot, etc.
EMP should be fed 2 or 3 times a day whilst rearing. During the moulting period feed EMP daily to aid feathering and to bring the birds back into peak condition. For the rest of the year feed EMP every second day to satisfy your birds' nutritional requirements.
EMP should comprise about a quarter of the birds daily feed.
All prices include VAT where applicable.

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Donald Cooke EMP Superior Egg Food for Birds, including answers from our team.
Is it ok to feed daily to my young budgie. She is 6 months old and has quality seed mix along with vegetables, soaked seeds and other nutritious human foods
I would definitely not recommend this. Budgies are adapted to live in the wild on a very poor sort of diet with extremely low fat levels present. They also take a lot more exercise than pet birds. Once budgies have finished growing then unless they are laying eggs, they do not need any high energy foods. In fact they are bad for them, often causing serious obesity and liver problems. Your desire to give your bird the best possible diet is commendable, but you are in danger of inadvertently causing trouble by trying to be too nice!
The best diet is a mix of good quality millet and canary seeds, along with some regular green food/salad vegetables. Trill is the gold standard seed mix, because of the vitamins and minerals added to it. These do not cause any trouble with increasing the energy content. Budgies are not good at eating greens, but as with children, they are good for them and should be encouraged. If you try to give anything "better" than this, you might well make things worse.
