    New Conure ONLY Eating Pellets

    Hi guys! I just got a new baby sun conure last Thursday and my vet appointment isn’t until next Saturday so I wanted to see if anyone had diet advice. We’re progressing quickly with the trust building. She will step onto my hand when I offer it and she likes hanging out under my hoodie. She’s...

    Multivitamin for my bird (collared dove)

    Hi! I have been recently looking into finding a multivitamin supplement to complete my dove's diet. She eats seeds (previous home raised her on seed, otherwise I would be giving pellets) and I also give her chop. Info on vitamins is hard to find, especially for doves and pigeons. If anyone knows...

    How much food?

    I´m really curious, how much do your lovebirds (past or present) eat in one day? Or how much do you feed them? I have seeds and pellets galore avail. for my birds after an all-you-can-eat veggie breakfast. I want to slowly cut down and stop wasting so much because I empty the seed pellet bowls...

    Updates On Jedi

    I haven't posted in awhile, so I wanted to give some updates on Jedi concerning his diet, enclosure, and training. Jedi's been on Harrison's pellets for over a year now, but Amazon is now wanting nearly a hundred dollars for a one pound bag... so no thank you. I ordered some of BirdTricks'...

    Healthy seeds?

    I’m planning to help my parrot make a healthy food change. My parrots current diet usually consists of sunflower seeds, fruits and vegetables (they’re literally the only foods she enjoys). I always give my parrot a mixture of many different seeds in her food bowl, however, she literally only...

    Cockatiel eats everything!

    So I got Plato this Wednesday and everything is going amazingly well. Since Socrates already came sick I never really experienced what was having a real cockatiel. Plato seems very healthy, he's very active and loved the toys I gave him right away. Within two days he was practically fully...

    Need help with Charlie's seed part of his diet!

    Hi guys! Charlie is running low on the homemade seed mix we got from the breeder (pictures above mixed with a bunch of colored pellets) which is pretty far away, so I decided to go to the pet shop and give commercial seed mixes a try. I tried my best to pick the healthiest they had, at least...

    Before and After Pellets

    Hey! I was wondering if anybody has pictures of their parrot before and after using pellets. I love seeing those types of comparisons :). Also, for those that did convert their parrot off of seeds, how long did it take to see a real difference in plumage?

    Conure food?

    I recently got a GCC and I was wondering if Zupreem fruitblend pellets were alright to give her or is there a better alternative. She was raised on those specific pellets. I provide her with daily fruits and vegetables but I'm unsure about the pellets themselves. Please let me know if theres...
