Feeding guidelines

Be sure to feed fresh food daily, do not "top off". To help reduce waste, feed as distinct meals. Birds may eat all they want, but use the table below as a guideline.

  • Conversion: All birds should start out and remain on High Potency Formula for a period of at least 6 months
  • Special needs: For birds that are molting, overweight, underweight, particularly active, housed in a cold climate, recovering from an illness or affected by liver or kidney disease
  • Weaning Birds: Feed High Potency Formula for at least 6-9 months
  • Breeding Birds: Birds should be fed High Potency Formula 1-2 months prior to the breeding period and until chicks are weaned or for at least six months before resuming Adult Lifetime Formula. The amount of supplemental certified organic vegetables and fruits may be increased until the chicks are weaned. For each 2 Tbs (20 g) formula, add ½ Tbs (5 g) certified organic peanuts or almonds and 1Tbs (10 g) certified organic sunflower seeds

55 The perfect parrot food
Verified Purchase

By on 24 August 2020

This product was recommended by the vet for my African Grey. He suffered with vitamin A deficiency and needed injections. He only seemed to pick out certain seeds from his parrot mix and his droppings were very loose. However, he took to Harrison's Potency Coarse Bird Food straight away, I did not have to persuade him at all. He absolutely loves it! He has been eating it for around 15 months now and his droppings are fine, no longer loose and he is so much better, he no longer needs vitamin A injections. I can highly recommend it. This is all he eats together with Avi-Cakes as a treat.

Big birdy


hi want to take parrot african grey of seed mix do i start with these pellets for six months then adult ones she already eat power treats no problem she about 15 years old she getting bit fatty eats a lot thank you

  • VioVet Staff

This diet can be given as the basis for your parrots diet and it should meet all of her  nutritional needs. It is worth trying a different diet if your parrot is overweight but the best way to reduce weight is by reducing treats or human food. Reweighing every 2 to 4 weeks is useful to monitor the progress of your parrot's weight loss.

If you are concerned your parrot is overweight then I advise contacting your local vet for further information, they can let you know how overweight your parrot is and what the ideal weight should be,

Can I feed my young sun conure high potency coarse bird food

K moores

I have tried my young sun conure on high potency fine but he won't touch it . He seems to prefer larger pellets . Can I feed him high potency course and for how long .
Many thanks
K moores

It is perfectly OK to use coarse pellets for ever if you wish, the size has only a small effect on nutritional value, it is more for ease/preference/personal choice. The high potency however is too high in fat to use throughout life. It is good for young, growing birds and adults while breeding. At other times it is best to use the Lifetime product, which contains markedly less fat. If your bird likes the larger pellets then I would gradually switch him to Harrisons Adult Lifetime Coarse. You will find that he prefers the original food because the fat is like me adding cream to a cake or butter to bread - it just tastes nice. That does not make it better nutritionally though. You will probably have to mix the two types of food together for a while and gradually reduce the amount of the high potency to zero. Hunger is the best way of encouraging the eating of different foods. Otherwise, if your bird can always fill up on fatty food, that may maybe what he always wants.
