What should I feed my parrot?
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 as the main part of your parrot's menu as they have a tendency to pick out just the tastiest bits - which can end up resulting in obesity and nutritional imbalance.
