Tropimix Bird Food – Not Your Typical Enrichment Formula
Tropimix isn’t your classic diet that is simply full of your bird’s favorite tasty ingredients such as nuts, seeds, fruit or veggies. Included in every bag of Tropimix bird food are Tropican extruded granules, that are not only bursting with peanut flavor, but are formulated with plenty of essential nutrients to ensure optimal health, vibrant feathers and strong bones for your pet bird.
Exceptional conversion diet for Parrots
Seeds are low in crucial vitamins, important minerals and other nutrients, and are very high in fat. As a result, feeding your Parrot only a seed based diet can lead to several health issues such as obesity and brittle feathers.
Tropimix helps transition Parrots hooked on certain seeds like sunflower to a varied diet which includes more legumes and formulated pellets like Tropican.
All ingredients are 100% edible and can be served dry or moistened. By adding an equal amount of hot water, the softened Tropican morsels that contain premium sources of protein and high nutrient levels coat your bird’s favorite seeds. The palatable nutty flavor will entice your bird, making him accustomed to the flavor.
Provides a stimulating eating experience and foraging opportunities
Lack of excitement and activity often leads to boredom, which can result in self destructive behaviors such as feather picking.
In the wild it’s estimated that parrots spend greater than 80 % of awaken hours foraging.
Foraging toys turn a life sustaining skill, into a giant social gathering full of nourishment, play, strategy and exercise.
Tropimix enrichment diets are excellent to use in foraging activities. Hiding the food in various locations and presenting the food in exciting ways trigger natural foraging behaviors, thus stimulating your pet bird both physically and mentally.
Tropimix Enrichement Food for Cockatiels and Lovebirds is made in Canada at Hagen Industries in Montreal and undergoes rigorous 3-stage testing, which is unprecedented among bird food makers.
