Is this considered a food supplement or just something extra? For a parakeet
Answer by ChewyMay 06, 2018
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.

Great stuff

My four parakeets absolutely love this mineral treat. It has a licorice/menthol smell if you will but it’s great. I’m really glad they all enjoy this and can see the difference in their behavior and feathers while being on this. Always on my auto ship. I would recommend this product definitely.

My cockatiel loves this stuff!

I never got this before, so I wasn’t sure how my bird would do with it or if he would even eat it, but it must taste great because he eats it all up whenever I give it to him.

Strong smell

Wasn't expecting any kind of scent coming from grit and the Anise is really strong.

I hate the smell

I’m not sure why but this smells really strange to me and I hate it. I’m sure it does what it’s supposed to do but I don’t like the smell at all

Don't buy. Stinks.

This stuff smells like licorice. And it has mineral oil in it. Neither of these make any sense for an oyster shell product.

What a Mess

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.
