A nutritionally balanced, high protein soft food for breeding parrots. Feed to adults prior to and during the breeding season to provide an improved diet for rearing healthy chicks.


In the wild, parrots feed their chicks a high protein diet of seeds, fruits, insects and carrion. Generally, wild plants provide superior nutrient compositions compared to most cereal grains fed by parrot breeders. The insect and carrion component of the diet provides essential amino acids and fatty acids.

Parrot owners often supplement breeding birds with a selection of foods such as soaked seed, “egg and biscuit” and a range of home-made recipes. Unfortunately these can be deficient in many of the essential nutrients needed for successful breeding results. Also birds do not select for a healthy diet from a mixture of foods, picking out the foods they prefer.

Many seeds found in parrot mixes contain low quality protein because they are deficient in several amino acids, particularly lysine and methionine. Adding animal based protein and essential amino acids improves the quantity and quality of dietary protein.


- Excellent nutrition – prepared from ingredients high in essential amino acids with added vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids (omega 3&6).
- Improved egg quality – unsaturated fatty acids for yolk development, and minerals for shell production.
- Improved chick health – balanced protein for optimum growth and feather condition.


- To prepare a moist crumbly soft food, slowly add a small amount of warm water to the powder while mixing. Introduce in small quantities until the birds accept it.
- For fussy birds mix in with other foods such as soaked seed or fruit and veg mix.
- Prepare soft food fresh each day to avoid microbial contamination.
- Can also be used as a high protein conditioning food for sick or malnourished parrots.
