Passwell Parrot Soft Food feed supplement is a high protein breeding supplement enriched with omega 3 & 6, vitamins and minerals.

In the wild parrots feed their chicks a high protein diet of seeds, fruits, insects, and carrion. Generally wild plants provide a superior nutrient composition to those of most cereal grains fed by parrot breeders. The insect and carrion component of the diet provides essential amino acids and fatty acids.

Parrot owners often supplement breeding birds with a selection of foods such as soaked seed, egg and biscuit products and a range of home-made recipes. Unfortunately birds do not select for a healthy diet from a mixture of foods, they pick out those they prefer. A breeding supplement for parrots needs to provide a balanced mix of nutrients in a single food to avoid favorite food selection.

Many seeds found in parrot mixes contain low quality protein foods because they are deficient in several essential amino acids. Adding an animal based protein to the food of breeding parrots will not only increase the quantity of dietary protein but will greatly improve its quality.

Passwell Parrot Soft Food is a nutritionally balanced, high protein soft food. It is prepared from ingredients high in essential amino acids and contains added vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids (omega 3 & 6) and other essential nutrients to provide a complete diet for parrots to raise healthy chicks.

Parrot Soft Food can also be used as a high protein conditioning food for sick or malnourished parrots.

Using Parrot Soft Food

To prepare a moist crumbly soft food slowly add warm water to the powder while mixing. Prepare food fresh for each day. We do not advise storing prepared food in the fridge overnight as it can become contaminated with microorganisms. Fresh is best. Alternatively mix Parrot Soft Food with other foods such as soaked seed or fruit and veg mix (eg frozen peas and corn).
