Feeding & Nutrition

The surest way to healthy, long life for your bird is feeding it a nutritionally sound diet. Many companion birds die at a young age from diseases caused by malnutrition. The average life-span of a companion parakeet is 10 years. Their wild cousins have been known to live 25 years. The difference is in their diets.

Feeding a balanced diet based on sound bird nutrition recommendations is key and an important factor contributing to proper avian health. Balancing a parrot’s diet from the beginning may prevent many health and behavioral problems. It is something you will want to do since an unbalanced diet can be a main cause of disease and early death in pet birds. With the right food, this can be prevented.
