with Balanced Nutrient Levels

Promoting a Healthy Lifestyle for Parrots

Lifetime Formula is the ideal parrot food for companion birds that are not moulting or facing any other stressors, such as cooler temperatures. With lower protein and calcium content, this food is designed to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The natural colours in Tropican come from natural sources such as carrots, tomatoes, and alfalfa, providing an attractive option for your bird without any artificial flavours.

Lifetime Formula contains a peanut-derived source of fat and protein and essential grains that complement amino acid profiles – critical components for maintaining health in fledged juvenile to adult parrots. The food is also a rich source of Omega fatty acids, thanks to flaxseed, peanuts, and sunflower seeds, which help make feathers shine and promote a healthy body.

Enhance Your Parrot’s Diet with Tropican Bird Food

Did you know that parrots have more taste buds than chickens? So why settle for bland chicken feed-like diets? Tropican bird food offers a delicious and nutritious meal for your feathered friend with its blend of eight multigrains and human-grade peanuts.

Unlike farm pellets, Tropican granules are designed to break cleanly without producing fine powder, leading to less waste. Additionally, Tropican’s generous levels of essential nutrients allow for enrichment with the addition of fruits and vegetables (generally around 30% of the total quantity of food). The hard and dense morsels also contribute to a healthier beak, vital to your bird’s overall health.

Tropican Lifetime Granules or Lifetime Food Sticks provide a balanced diet for picky eaters, eliminating the need for vitamin supplements as they already contain essential vitamins and minerals. Treat your parrot to a tasty and healthy meal with Tropican bird food.

Feeding Guide

To ensure that your bird is receiving the necessary nutrients, feed it Tropican food every day in a clean food dish, taking into account the bird’s actual needs and spillage. Provide a fresh, clean supply of water daily.

It’s important to note that Tropican food is intended to be your bird’s primary diet. While fresh fruits, vegetables, and other treats are excellent sources of enrichment, limit them to 30% of your bird’s total diet. When used as directed, no additional vitamin or mineral supplements are necessary.

When introducing a new food, gradually mix it with the “old” food, by switching in 20% every week with current food. This will help prevent digestive upset and allow your bird to adjust to the new food. To keep things hygienic, discard any uneaten portions and clean the food dish before the next feeding.

Where does the fruity aroma and pellet colour in Tropican Lifetime come from?

The delightful fruity fragrance in Tropican Lifetime comes from the addition of natural fruit oils such as banana and orange oil. Just before packaging, herbal antioxidants and tocopherols (Vitamin E) are mixed in to preserve freshness. This natural aroma will gradually fade over time after opening, unlike artificial flavours.

The mixed grain composition of Tropican Lifetime gives it a natural yellow colour. Additionally, the food contains orange and green pellets, which get their colour from natural vegetable sources such as tomato (orange) and alfalfa nutrient concentrate (green).

Parrot Diets: Determining the Right Amount of Tropican Bird Food for Your Pet

Feeding your pet bird a balanced diet is crucial to their well-being. While the HARI Flock feeds on 100% Tropican daily, we recommend that most companion pet birds consume 70% Tropican Extruded Pellets and 30% enrichment food, such as seed & nut mixes, fresh fruits and vegetables, leafy greens, sprouts, and Tropimix.

Remember that this is a general recommendation, and factors such as your bird’s lifestyle, life stage, species, weight, and predisposition can influence the appropriate diet. If you have any health concerns, it’s always best to consult with your Avian Veterinarian. Breeder and juvenile parrots may require a slightly different amount of Tropican.
