We love healthy parrots so we consult with avian veterinarians and avian nutritionists to determine the diets that we'd want to feed our own birds.
There are a staggering number of bird diets on the market, but which ones have been scientifically studied for our parrots? Or, a particular pet bird species? Not many!
Parrots are what they eat! Our bird food selection, at BirdSupplies.com, is limited because we sell only the few veterinarian recommended brands. We've researched the diets that most avian vets recommend. Combine vet recommended processed food with healthy human food to improve your parrots overall well-being.
FORAGING FOR FOOD:
Did you know that parrots and pet birds need to forage for food? Birds that plan and problem solve to obtain nutrition get both their mental health and nutritional needs met are happy pets! Compliment your birds basic diet with fresh fruits, vegetables and nuts. Create foraging opportunities like those found in our foraging bird toys and suggestions.
When you decided to get a pet bird, was it to cherish the persona of a tropical, exotic creature? Of course!
A parrot that is consistently fed an inferior seed based bird diet will succomb to malnutrition and just feel crummy. I don't know about you, but when I'm not feeling good, I'm short tempered and snappy.
A poorly fed parrot will have a poor disposition and will develop behaviors from screaming, feather picking and temperamental biting to sluggish, unresponsive lethargy. The best way to prevent bird behavior problems is by feeding a your bird a healthy diet.
