This is an improved soft food formulation on the old style egg & biscuit recipes. The addition of hydrolysed casein and lactalbumin to the isolated soy and whey proteins produces an amino acid composition that is superior to that of egg. This amino acid composition along with the polyunsaturated and omega-3-fatty acids in Passwell EGG & BISCUIT provides an excellent nutritional base for rearing canaries. Passwell EGG & BISCUIT is a complete soft food for rearing canary chicks and should be fed to adult birds prior to breeding and offered throughout the breeding season until the chicks have fledged.


It is important to feed canaries a balanced diet throughout the year and particularly when they are breeding.

Breeding canaries have an increased requirement for vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids and polyunsaturated fats. Inadequate amounts of any of these important nutrients in the diet will result in either poor egg development or poor chick growth.

Many commercially available seeds are low in protein and deficient in essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals. Breeders often try to correct these deficiencies by feeding egg & biscuit supplements.

Most commercial egg & biscuit products are made from the cheapest ingredients, are poorly formulated and contain little, if any, egg. They are deficient in many of the essential nutrients needed for successful breeding results. Even home-made egg and biscuit recipes that are prepared from boiled eggs can be unbalanced, containing poor nutrient to energy ratios and inadequate amounts of vitamins and minerals.

Beware of products that do not display a list of ingredients, composition information or expiry date on the label.


Passwell EGG & BISCUIT is a scientifically formulated bird food and should not to be confused with any of the commercially available egg & biscuit products.

Passwell EGG & BISCUIT, with high quality protein, polyunsaturated fats and added vitamins and minerals, provides all known essential nutrients required by breeding canaries and their chicks.

Passwell EGG & BISCUIT can be used as a soft food for most other birds and as a substitute in any recipe that calls for egg and biscuit.
