We own over 100 Parrots, and ......
We use a complete diet as the main diet of all our birds.
We all know that like ourselves, birds don't always choose a healthy diet.
A lot of birds, if given the choice will choose a high fat diet.
( Know all about that, don't we !!!!)
Just as we do when we choose high calorie snacks.
How often do we have to clean up the around the birds cage or eating area.?
That is because your bird will often pick out the seed that he wants even although it is doing him no good at all and leave the nutritious food behind.
Very much like you or I do with a box of chocolates, we pick out all the soft centres and leave the ones that we don't want.
Our Parrots do exactly the same with their food.
A seed diet lacks many important vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Seed diets are also deficient in important nutrients.
Of course we also feed seeds to our birds but the main diet is extruded food.
A nutritionally deficiency diet can lead to obesity, lower immune response to infections and even premature death.
Too many fatty foods can also lead to breathing problems and blocking of their nasal cavities.
Fresh Fruit and Vegetables are important to a birds diet, however they should not take up any more than 15% of the birds daily diet.
Some are very high in sugar and carbohydrates and also lack important nutrients. Because they add bulk and fibre, the bird will feel satisfied and again not eat the nutritious food.
Make sure that when changing a birds diet that it is done gradually,
Birds that we have rehomed have been moved over onto a complete food diet over a period, we have continually checked their weight and droppings. Some take longer that others to make the move.
Rupert our Umbrella Cockatoo will eat pelleted food as a treat out his cage but throws them out and eats seed in his cage.
Of course like going on a diet or stopping smoking, it is not easy but the benifits are well worth the effort.
The conversion may take several weeks and believe it or not we tend to give up first.
Usually we say the bird won't eat it. we need to persevere with it because we know that it is for the best.
