Breeding birds require extra nutrition to enable them to lay fertile eggs and rear healthy chicks. Parrot Breeder Pellets contain extra protein, vitamins and minerals to support reproduction.
Although Parrot Breeder Pellets contain all the nutrition necessary to be fed as a complete diet it is recommended that the birds be given access to fruit, vegetables and native vegetation as environmental enrichment.
