Versele-Laga Yel-Lux 20 g (yellow colorant)
Yellow colorant based on lutein
- Intensifies the yellow colour of the plumage,
- Increases the resistance.
As feathers consist of dead cells and are consequently not fed by the metabolism, they absorb the colour when they are formed. On average, the plumage is changed once a year. However not in one go. The moulting of the old feathers is stimulated by the formation of new ones and this is a gradual process so that the bird keeps a full plumage.
When YEL-LUX is added to the food it is transported to the place where the feather grows and it takes on the more yellow colour. The feather grows and it takes on the more intense yellow colour. The feather formed retains its colour until the formation of a new feather.
1 level measure (=1g) per 100g of egg food. During the breeding season: Daily from 2 weeks before laying the first egg until after moulting. During moulting: Daily for the entire moulting period. Show birds: Daily for the entire show season.
In bloodlines that naturally have a strong yellow colour, or if the food offered is already rich in xanthophyll pigments (rapeseed, fresh yolk...) it may be sufficient to give only half the dosage from 2 weeks of age (1g/200g egg food)
YEL-LUX should always be given in the feed and not in the drinking water.
Natural xanthophyll extracts from Tagetes sp.
