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

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.
