    Budgie diet conversion!

    Elvis, Olive and Turtle have been eating brown rice, seeds, and pellets (occasionally, because they're so picky and hate the pellets we're currently buying, but the bag ain't empty yet) but I have been trying to get them to eat more stuff. I have been trying to feed them sliced carrots for a...

    I recently started feeding my budgies rice in an effort to wean them off of seeds and it's working great. They love rice! We buy organic brown rice from a rice farmer, and it's the best rice money can buy. Rice has a lot of carbs, though, so how much should I be feeding them? I've started...

    Beware of Zupreem - Macaw in Crisis

    I've had my rescued Scarlet Macaw Luna for 3 1/2 years now, and throughout that time (and her year-long foster period beforehand) she has been on a Zupreem pellet diet. She started on the regular fruit blend for large birds, then I started mixing in the natural and veggie blends, and finally...

    Training Treats and Diet

    Sencha, my 16-month-old GCC, has a training session first thing in the morning, six days a week. His favorite treat is safflower seeds, so I use those for training and only for training. The problem is that Sencha is a very good boy! As such, he generally scores a LOT of safflower seeds (maybe a...

    Plucking feathers after changing diet from sunflower seeds to mixed birdfood

    This is our first time owning a pet and we’ve had a pineapple conure for 4 years. We’ve only recently discovered that a daily diet of sunflower seeds is very bad for him, he only eats a few a day since we feed him fresh fruit and veg etc daily. Since learning this we’ve changed his food to mixes...

    Cause for Concern?

    Hello everyone. I bought my lovely green IRN Chief back in December and noticed a strip across his head where there are way less feathers; I wouldn't call it bald as such, but you can see the skin beneath at certain angles. After a few months now on premium seed/nut mix, an increasingly varied...

    I'm currently making a new diet for my eclectus and macaw and this is what I usually feed them along with some pellets and sometimes seeds. Is this good enough, or is there things I can add or remove?

    Cockatiel fussy with food?

    I’m worried about my cockatiel. I have had her for around 2 months now but she seems to not like any of the food I give her. I have tried giving her nutri-berries, Harrison’s pellets and a few different brands of seed mixes. She wasn’t interested I’m the nutri-berries or pellets and she just...

    Pellet recommendations?

    I have a parrotlet and parakeet and want to start mixing some more pellet into their diet. The only pet store around is Petco, and the pellet options they had there were terrible, as they had a paragraph of ingredients that were mostly oils and random chemicals. Does anyone have any...

    Hello, I am in a very tough spot right now after realizing I made a huge mistake with my green cheek conure. She is very sick and I want to get some advice. I thought my bird Cosmo was eating a healthy diet, but I guess I was not paying enough attention to what she ate out of what I gave her...

    Is it okay to soak my quaker and cockatiel's pellets?

    Hello! I've been running out of ideas to convert my quaker and cockatiel to pellets. I've had them for years, so needless to say they're not giving up without a fight. However, I recently found that they like their Zupreem pellets a lot more when they've been soaked in hot water and become a...
