Vetafarm pellets are a delicious parrot food, enjoyed by most birds, and we are confident that your bird will likewise adore this diet. We have found that birds on the Bird Pet range of pellets eat Vetafarm just as readily. If you have previously bought Bird Pet pellets from us and your bird refuses to eat the Vetafarm pellets, you are welcome to return the product for a full refund, including postage.

Whilst the Vetafarm Finch and Budgie Crumble can be provided as a total feed for Finches and Budgies, it is recommended that vegetables, fruits, seeding grasses or soaked seed be provided daily for environmental enrichment.
Please note: If you are converting your birds for the first time to pellets, budgies typically take longer to convert to pellets than most other birds.
Please ensure the birds are consuming sufficient amounts with continual vigilance. Water consumption will increase with a pelleted diet. Serve a little more then your bird will consume over the course of the day in a clean dry bowl separate to other foods. The pellets not consumed will not spoil and may be used the following day unless dampened or defecated on.
