Lafeber Parrot Food Nutri_Berries Garden Veggie is a healthy parrot and exotic pet bird food. In the wild, birds eat a vast variety of foods: seeds, nuts, grasses, flowers, fruits, insects, the list goes on. The change in seasons brings new types of foods, and birds nourish themselves on what’s available. At home, your bird also nourishes himself on what’s available, so it should ideally be the most balanced, natural and whole food possible. A bird’s diet is critical to his health. A bird on a poor diet will not live out his full life span, and will most likely succumb to any number of viral, bacterial, and fungal infections. With Lafeber Parrot Food Nutri_Berries Garden Veggie it will boost the immune system and helps the bird ward off illness. Not only that, a good diet rich in Lafeber Parrot Food Nutri_Berries Garden Veggie keeps a bird in good spirits, keeps his feathers in great condition, and improves his life overall. The “base” diet is the primary item that you feed your bird on a daily basis; everything else you feed is an addition to the diet, or may even be considered a “snack.” Ideally, the base diet should be as nutritionally sound as possible because it is what your bird is eating the most. Lafeber products, like Lafeber Parrot Food Nutri_Berries Garden Veggie, are the ideal base diet because they are formulated to be nutritionally balanced. Every bite your bird takes of Lafeber Parrot Food Nutri_Berries Garden Veggie offers building blocks for all of the systems of the body. They are also fun for your bird to eat and are packed with a wide variety of healthy, nutritious, non-GMO ingredients, most of which your bird would search out in the wild. The base diet — whether it’s Lafeber Parrot Food Nutri_Berries Garden Veggie, Nutri-Meal bars, Avi-Cakes, Pellet-Berries or Premium Daily Diet Pellets, or a combination of these — should be offered in the morning when the bird is hungriest. If the bowl is empty later in the evening, you can add more. Don’t allow your bird’s bowl to be empty for too long. Small birds, especially, have a very fast metabolism and most choose to eat all day long.
