Birds may need to be converted to a pellet diet. There are several ways to convert a bird to pellets:
1. Mix the pellets with seed in a bowl (50:50) add enough hot water to soften the pellet and make it sticky – squeeze the mix into a rissole and place in an empty seed bowl. Feed this mix for several days and then begin to reduce the proportion of seed. After about 10 days you can add dry pellets to the bowl. Observe all birds closely during the conversion process.
2. Mix the pellets with any fruit and vegetable mix or with soaked seed. Use this mix for 5 – 10 days and then reduce the fruit/veges/soaks until the birds are consuming a total pellet diet. Once the birds are eating the pellet diet, soft foods can be re-introduced as part of their diet.
Feeding: make freely available as the primary food source. Vetafarm pellets are designed to provide complete nutrition when fed at a rate of 80% or more of the total diet.
Note: Breeding Parrots will require additional nutrition or a switch to Vetafarm Breeder pellets during breeding season due to increased nutritional demand.
