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.

    Big difference!

    By on

    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.

    i have ring neck doves that require bird grit. Chewy is the only place i can get the large bag of this grit. it’s more reasonably priced than other places that sell the small bag.

    Weird color, but works.

    By on

    It is an off-putting turquoise color. The grit I had before was tan, so I don’t know the why of the color. But the birds are doing fine.

    ok in a pinch

    By on

    I have 2 parakeets and I ran out of grit and gravel and needed something fast and I did not want to drive 20 miles 1 way to buy some. It is working for them at present but they are not crazy about it.
