With more than 400 species to choose from, there’s a parrot to suit every lifestyle. From the smaller varieties such as Cockatiels and Lovebirds, to the impressive and colourful Macaws, parrots make engaging and intelligent companions that enliven any household. Regardless of the type of parrot you choose, they all have one thing in common; the right diet is essential to their health and wellbeing. A balanced diet, with a rich variety of ingredients, provides mental stimulation as well as the vital nutrients needed for good health. That’s why our parrot blends contain up to 27 separate ingredients, mixing colours, textures, smells and tastes to make feeding a satisfying experience for your parrot in more ways than one.
