Proper nutrition is of the most controversial topics among parrot owners. Beak n Wings recommends that all parrots be fed a diet that consists of 60% high quality pellets, 25% vegetables and fruits, 10% high quality seeds or nuts, 3% healthy table foods, and 2% treats. Always discuss dietary changes with your avian vet.
If you'd like to try cooking for your birds, check out our Bird Mash recipe.
Converting a bird that is used to eating seeds over to pellets can be a challenge. Parrots don't always welcome change and they need to learn to identify their food visually before they will eat it. For help converting a parrot to pellets try reading this article from the Zupreem company.
