Feeding Instructions:
While Maintenance Pellets contain all the nutrition necessary to be fed as a complete diet, it is recommended that the birds be given daily access to fruit, vegetables and native vegetation for environmental enrichment.

Please ensure the birds are consuming sufficient amounts with continual vigilance. Water consumption will increase with a pelleted diet.

The pellets not consumed will not spoil and may be used the following day unless dampened or defecated on.
