Ingredients to pellets

Sponsored Links
Pellets are something everyone has a opinion about, because of this I went around and found as many ingredients as I could and posted them all together on this thread. It will be a great place to compare ingredients and for people new to the world of parrots will be able to see what is available on the market.

Try to avoid pellets that have a lot of filler ingredients, artificial colors, ethoxyquin, bha/bht, salt, and sugar. Buy human grade pellets whenever possible. Also be aware that Vitamin K supplement has been banned in human food for toxicity.
