Scientists at Cornell University have observed female hummingbirds eating dirt, ashes, and snail shells. These experts have been studying this phenomenon for over a decade and have concluded that hummingbirds have adopted this behavior because of depleted Calcium and vitamin sources. Female hummingbirds need a diet rich in both vitamins and Calcium. Without vitamin D, hummingbirds can’t absorb Calcium. Without Calcium, females produce eggs with thin shells that can’t adequately protect the baby hummer. So we added Calcium and Vitamin D to our food products.
