Feeding Instructions

Sunburst Treats can be fed in a separate treat dish or mixed with your pet’s daily food. Discard any unused portion before feeding again. Feed treats to not exceed 20% of your pet bird’s total daily food consumption. This helps to ensure that your pet is receiving the required nutrients from its regular fortified food. We recommend one of Higgins premium diets like inTune, Sunburst Gourmet Blend, Safflower Gold, Mayan Harvest and Vita Seed. Be sure to try all the Sunburst Gourmet Natural Treat flavors!  

Transition Instructions

While introducing a new food to your bird friend, gradually mix new food with your pet’s old diet. Increase the amount of food over a period of 7 to 10 days. This will allow your pet to adjust to the new food and it will prevent any upset to your pet’s digestive system.

    What a Mess

    By dace on Apr 15, 2021

    The bag on this item was open and the contents all spilled out in transit. There is a blue powder like substance that coats the grit and it was EVERYWHERE! It was all over the items inside the box, on my hands, up my nose, on my floor ... I mean everywhere. It was irritating to my eyes and sinuses (which I immediately rinsed out). I thought, if it was like this for me, I certainly do not want my little bird to be inhaling this into her lungs as she is eating so I will not be using this product.

    Smells strongly of anise

    By Granny46 on Feb 25, 2021

    My birds refuse this grit because of the strong smell of anise. It’s just too strong for them. I donated the 5 remaking bags to a rescue.

    Great way to shop

    By Birdy on Jan 11, 2021

    I am so glade I found Chewy. They are the best. I get all my pet supplies from Chewy. I use about 75 pounds of bird seed a month. Great price and easy ordering.

    Pricey but good

    By Marty on Dec 26, 2020

    The grit is very good, but the price is too high for such a small package.

    Big difference!

    By Daisy on Jul 29, 2019

    So my bird loves eating oyster shell grit just a little bit a day but thats about it. I noticed my bird is more hyperactive, i think hes more energized than before. Before he was calm but quiet mostly. Before he didnt fly much either, which i was worried for his weight. Now hes like his normal self. He probably was missing some minerals in his diet that was causing him to feel fatigue. Great supplememt for your birds.
