What is the best parrot food?
Getting their nutrition right is essential to keeping your parrot happy and healthy! Your parrot's ideal diet will vary depending on their size and natural habitat, but the base should be made up of a good quality, complete and balanced pellet. Avoid feeding seed mixes as the mainstay of your parrot's diet as they will tend to pick out only their favourite bits and can quickly become overweight or develop nutritional deficiencies.
