My parakeets have fading syndrome so I need a food that had a lot of vitamins and nutrients and boost immune health,would this be a good food to switch to?
Answer by ChewyAug 03, 2019
Due to your pet's diagnosed condition, we recommend consulting your Veterinarian to see what would be a good fit for your little one's current treatment plan.

Is there any source of vitamin K in this
Answer by ChewyOct 29, 2019
This recipe does not contain Vitamin K. For a complete list of ingredients, click on the 'Nutritional Info' tab, next to the 'Description' tab, just under the product photos.

is this high in sugar?
Answer by ChewyAug 13, 2019
Sugar is part of the coating for this formula. Water, probiotics, and sugar are mixed together to enhance viscosity, then it's lightly sprayed onto the food after the extrusion process is complete. This is done to enhance palatability.

Answer by ChewyAug 12, 2019

Keeps luv it

InTune parakeet food is so much less messy than seed . My parakeets do NOT throw it on the floor . They actually like it and eat it . They have a very small dish of seed to throw out if they want to .

Birds won’t touch it!

I have been offering this to my birds (along with other foods) for several weeks and they have yet to eat any of it. They are used to a wide variety of foods, including pellets, but this apparently doesn’t appeal to them at all.

Not a good fit for my bird

We have a young parakeet who was doing well on another Higgins product that was all seeds. I decided to give this a try, and my bird refuses to eat it. There is nothing wrong with the product, but my bird doesn't eat it.

Intune Complete Balance Diet

I bought your latest Tune natural blend for my parakeets made by Higgins and my bird didn't like it. The only one they like is vita seed natural blend. Since I bought the Intune complete balance diet, I have to mix it with the vita seed natural bend for them to eat it.

Good food, piece size not ideal for species listed

I've used the InTune formulas with several species of birds and the acceptance is good (noting that all my birds are already familiar with pelleted foods). I like that the colors all come from natural sources, which I feel is better than artificial coloring, plus it doesn't seem to stain items that droppings might fall onto. It smells "fruity," but not sickeningly sweet. My only comment when someone is selecting a bag is to note that, as is the case with many pellets, the size of the pieces is really larger than ideal for the species the bag is labeled for. The ingredients are the same with all, so I prefer the Canary size for canaries up to cockatiel, budgie size for conures up to medium parrots, and conure size for med or large parrots. I find acceptance rate is lower if the labeled size is used, plus it's a lot more wasteful as birds bite chunks and then drop the rest, especially with the smaller birds who don't hold food in their feet. If Higgins made a size even smaller than canary, it would be even better for canaries and finches.

really strong smelling

We use to buy Huggins brand pellets from our bird breeder but we thought we’d try to order from chewy for delivery. For whatever reason my birds won’t touch these. When I first opened the bag the fruit smell hit me like a wall. I read the bag and it does say fruit smell but it was so strong. My other pellets don’t smell like this so maybe that’s why they won’t touch it.

Parakeets won't touch it

We have 3 parakeets, and none of them will touch this food. We usually give them seed, but I purchased these pellets by mistake. I figured it was worth a try because the seeds are very messy, and it's always hard to tell if I'm throwing away good seed or not mixed in with the shells and husks. So I feel like there is quite a bit wasted when I change out their food with the seeds. But this was a no go for my birdies. They won't even touch it. I put treats on it to entice them. But they will eat the treats off the top and that's it. I don't know if they could learn to like this, but I don't want to risk them starving while I try to give them every chance to try this. I will have to get something else. I usually like Higgins, but this was a big disappointment.

Too healthy

My picky parakeets would not touch this feed. They thought I was trying to starve them when I tried to get them to eat it.

My keets won't eat it yet

I was impressed at the ingredients and I know Higgins has a great rep, but I can't get my birds to eat it; I've tried straight and mixed with seed, etc. I'd love suggestions as I want them to get the vitamins.
