Converting Your Bird to a New Diet Serve McLeod’s Parrot Cuisine, fresh fruits and vegetables in the morning. Sprinkle a few seeds on the mixture if encouragement is needed. Replace the seed bowl with dry foods like bird pellets and non sweetened cereals. Changing eating habits may take up to 3 weeks! We recommend 2 fresh meals a day and removing them prior to spoilage.



Variety is the spice of life! Parrot’s diets should contain a variety of different natural foods such as grains, fruit, vegetables, nuts and other proteins, like lean meat and eggs. Birds should receive one full bowl of these fresh foods twice a day! Some birds are more carnivorous than others - African Greys relish chicken!



Birds prefer seeds which are high in fat! Diets high in fat potentially cause obesity, liver problems, feather plucking, impaired immune systems, nutritional deficiencies, and a shortened life span. Some birds will develop fatty tumors as a result of eating bird seed year after year. Amazons in particular are prone to liver problems due to excessive fat in their diet.
