    'Tiel & Budgie Diet

    I'm wondering if a mix (in all equal parts) of Zupreem Natural Pellets, Harrison's Adult Lifetime, Dr. Harvey's Colossal Cockatiel Blend, and Top's Parrot pellets is a healthy well rounded diet for my cockatiels and budgie to eat? Of course they will still get fresh fruits and veggies as well as...

    Harrison's pellets changes from batch to batch?!?

    I just opened a new bag of Harrison's pellets that I just bought from the vet and I noticed that the colour is lighter than usual, the pellets are smaller and the shape of them is a lot more square.... I am glad my bird didn't notice anything and still ate his pellets or I'll be in big trouble...

    Lovebird not eating enough?

    I am a bit concerned about my lovebirds eating habits. She is currently on pellets and chop and gets millet everyday as a training treat. However, she only eats around 1/2 tablespoon of pellets. From what I’ve heard most people give their lovebirds 1-2 tablespoons a day. However, she’s been...

    Pellet Opinions?

    What brands do you feed your conures? I have been feeding my green cheek Zupreem (dye-free) pellets, but I’ve noticed that when he eats these his droppings have a sour smell, and his feathers seem to develop black spots (not entirely sure it’s due to the food or something else though). Either...
