Many breeders use Bogena Intensief mixed with Carophyl (Canthaxanthin). The combination of the two products will promote intense red color throughout all the bird’s plumage. The Canthaxanthin is very effective at coloring the contour feathers and Bogena is good on the longer feathers on the wing and tail. The products can be mixed into eggfood/nestling food recipes or in the drinking water. Canary breeders that use this combination dilute the strength of the Bogena/Carophyl R. Many breeders suggest a mix rate of 50g CarophyllR/Canthaxantin 10% to 500g Bogena.
