  • minerals;
  • vitamins;
  • carbohydrates;
  • biologically active substances.

It should be noted that the mouth of a rooster is small in size, so special attention is given to grinding food.

Products must be fresh and clean. By purchasing them from a reliable person, you should freeze it in reserve and break off the right amount at a certain time.

Meat food should be included in the menu 3-4 times a week. It does not need to be mixed with other components, otherwise the fish may begin indigestion.

The basis for such dishes may be:

  • cucumber;
  • squash;
  • nettle;
  • celery;
  • cauliflower;
  • seaweed, etc.

Commercial flakes have different color and size. The choice depends on the type of living fish, the composition of water (especially) and the presence in the diet of other components. If only flakes are used, it is necessary to purchase such a composition that is recommended for daily use for cockerels.

If this is an additional component, you should choose a fortified composition, supplemented with minerals and biologically valuable additives.
