Is your pet bird living on pre-packaged meals?
Providing your parrot with a balanced and varied nutrition is essential for its health and well-being. A diet of seed and water alone does not provide sufficient nutrients. Packaged foods may claim to contain all your bird requires but they are a poor substitute for including a wide variety of foods, including fresh, frozen and cooked vegetables.
