Baby Advice


Is your parrot eating a correct diet or heading for trouble?!


Fruit and vegetables form a large proportion of a heathly Parrots dietIs your Parrot eating the correct diet? Most are not! Here's a few things you might consider when choosing the correct diet.

Does your parrot have any of the following problems - Feather Plucking - Continuous Moult - Non replacement of feathers after the moult - Persistent Screeching - Bad Temper - Biting - Hyperactivity - Self Mutilation - General Bad Behaviour - Poor Health - Lethargy.

Most Parrots that visit the vet have not been given an adequate diet. I would like to quote from a recent article by an eminent vet ." The single most significant medical cause of illness in a pet parrot is an inadequate diet. A report showed that up to 90% of all sick or feather plucking parrot taken to the vet were suffering from "primary nutritional deficiencies" This is a very poor reflection on our parrot nutrition, and is an issue which needs to be addressed".
The parrot diet recommended by Parrotcare is based on 30 years experience of breeding and keeping pet parrots with great success and where feather plucking has been eliminated. The products sold in the diets are used at Parrotcare. [We don't sell any products unless they are tried with success over a sustained period of time!] Nothing could be simpler than introducing your Parrot to a Pellet Diet.
