Thanks Wendy

Since their ingredients list wasn't as specific I looked all over and found a parrot blog were they posted a more extensive list. Maybe we can only see the complete list on the bag itself for certain brands(maybe Vetafarm and Nutribird are like that too). I added one of these to the second post so they're all together.

Woohoo!! Go TOP!!! I love it because it doesn't have ground shelled peanuts like Harrison's and a couple other pellets. Thank you for all the information. Pretty cool to see the difference of ingredients in all the pellets. Awesome!!! And very useful!

This is what the breeder feed Valentino along with Harrison's high pot course so for now I am mixing them together. Valentino will eat both pellets but when fresh food if fed to him he will attack his salad. LOL. I got to get a video of his attacking his salad. Too funny what he does with the Spinach leaves.
That's so weird it smells like gum XD And I'd love to see a video of Valentino attacking his salad! Sounds so cute

I love TOPS too It's such a great brand! Unfortunately since I started giving Rosie Harrison's fine she leaves the TOP. I've tried giving her tops in the morning and Harrison's in the evening but she barely ate and in the evening she acted starved. I still add TOPS everyday but she leaves it, I mostly use it for mash, baking, and I grind it up and put it on her harrison's like a powder supplement

Re: Ingredients to pellets

I feed Valentino a specific Tropican called high performance parrot stick which is a yellow pellet and not colorful like the normal diet. I have tried to find it available but only on Amazon in 20 pounds. I think the Tropican is a good pellet but just a pain for me to get a hold of for only one parrot. This is the pellet I will switch over the hand rearing too. Pulverize it up and mix with hot water and feed though the syringe for his nite time before bed comfort feeding. Valentino will take about 30 cc's then fly around the house like a freak THEN I can put him to bed. I have a weird parrot.

I wanted to get new video and pics of Valentino this weekend but Friday night Lupe took me to ER and I was in hospital until 5pm Saturday. The weekend was a bust. I am hoping for some time to film and take pics of Valentino this weekend.

Re: Ingredients to pellets

Great thread, thanks for all the info. I have been thinking of switching Bosley over to TOPS, he seems to be pretty tired of the pellet he is on Pretty Bird species specific. This info is great to have handy.

Re: Ingredients to pellets

I'm sorry. I might of talked about it in another thread. I have bad asthma and with the weather being so cold and furnace running so much it is dry and cold here aggravating my asthma. I went in to doctor on Thursday and he wanted to admit me then but I just wanted to go home and use the added meds he gave me. Friday Lupe took me to the VA urgent care/ER and for the first time they admitted me. Normally they work to get my O2 stats up to 92 percent and with meds will go home. This time because the normal treatment for asthma counts for predisone a steroid which makes blood sugars rise so much I now have to take insulin pills to control blood sugars until I can stop taking the predisone. The steroid was making my blood sugars so high my vision was blurry and confusion and klutziness prevailed. Had to be hospitalized to stabilize all of that. Once the course of predisone is done my blood sugars should go back down and I should not have to take the insulin pills anymore. Pricking my fingers four times a day sucks. I also think the VA hospitalizes more often than normal ER's. I just didn't count on them admitting me Friday night. Screwed up my weekend plans and all my pets were not happy I didn't come back Friday night. Lupe had to hand feed Valentino and he was constantly looking for me calling out "Mamma? Mamma?"

I am sorry for I don't mean to hijack Copper's tread on Pellet ingredients. This is a very important thread to know what are IN those parrot pellets. There are so many types out there and sometimes it is hard to know which ones are the better ones to feed to our parrots. I have kept parrots for over 20 years and I still can get confused with which pellets are the best.

TOPS is great! I love the smell and it doesn't go bad nearly fast as Harrison's. It's also a amazing price considering the quality of food you are buying.
