Macaw Pellets/Amount

What kind of pellets does your Mac eat?
How much does he/she go through in a month?
Approximately how long would a 10 pound bag last?

Re: Macaw Pellets/Amount

About a cup a day. Plus fruit, nuts, veggies, and other fresh foods...

I buy in bulk, but with five birds in the house I go through a 50 lb bag about every 3 months or so.

Wow, I would have thought they went through more each day, considering their large size. But of course, lots of variety throughout the day makes up for it.
Thank you!

Re: Macaw Pellets/Amount

Pellets make up 50-60% of my bird's diet. The rest is a combination of fresh fruits, veggies,nuts, etc.
