Re: 6 Ways to Introduce New Foods to your Fid

I want to take a moment to share a personal experience with you. I rescued a female quaker, she was a hardcore seed addict, she had behavioral issues and vitamin deficiencies aggravated by the onset of puberty. Her CAV felt a lot of her issues could be resolved by drastically improving her diet. The quaker was plucking to the point of mutilation and laying eggs. I wasnít a professional Avian chef at the time so I read extensively about Avian diets and how diet effects parrotsí health in a multitude of ways. I discovered Bird Street Bistro and read the ingredient list, I was impressed. I ordered the sample pack. I should have ordered it sooner, we werenít doing so well before my discovery, my little quaker was furious about the menu changes her CAV suggested, she was dumping her bowl of fresh chop daily, she swore at me, rattled her empty bowl, created extreme drama at every meal. I cooked the first batch of BSB, the smell was heavenly. Quick, easy, nutritious, convenient, now if only I could get it past her beak. Harryís a stubborn girl, Iím a stubborn human. She didnít try it the first, second or third day, but one afternoon I placed the food on a small coaster on our dining table, sat down with a book and pretended not to care if Harry even noticed the food. She cautiously approached the food, tossed the apples, daintily picked at the rice and actually swallowed a few bites. Five years later, Harry gets excited when she smells BSB cooking and dives beak first into her bowl when the food is finally served. Iím a much better Avian chef than I was then but having a few bags of BSB in the freezer ready to prepare in just minutes on busy days really comes in handy. I have seven parrots now and every one of them loves the food, itís like giving them a special treat with a lot of nutritional value. My CAG, YNA and one of my male quakers were seed addicts when they joined our family and Bird Street Bistro made the transition to a healthy diet so much easier.

Diet is a personal choice and I donít often rant about products but this is a high quality food in my opinion and my healthy flock agrees.!

Hi Allee,

This is the reason why we're in business. To help bring our feathered companions and their parents a healthy and nutritional choice birds love.

Thank you so much for sharing your story. We love hear about positive stories, how birds are rescued, saved, or positively impacted in any way. But when our food is involved we are reminded why we are in this business and why the founders of the company, just like so many other bird parents, thought there could be something better for our birds.

We look forward to learning more from this amazing community and building a relationship for years to come.

Sincerely,

Your Friends at Bird Street Bistro
