Is this suppose to smell like cheese?
Answer by ChewyNov 28, 2017
Given the eggs, yeast, and multitude of active probiotics inside, it wouldn't be unusual to associate the smell of this Higgins High Protein Bird Food with the smell of another dairy product like cheese.

Would this help with a breeding pair's egg health?

Parakeet loves it

My parakeet hates wet food. So fresh vegetables which they are supposed to eat he won't touch. I got him some dried greens he eats. Then I tried this partly because he moults a lot (vet thinks it's normal, healthy bird). He used to just sit on the perch and watch as I gave him his food. As soon as he sees me raise this bag, he comes running over. I can't believe he even recognized this from the greens bag! Anyway, I saw reviews how birds dislike it. I kind of wonder if those are the birds that are happy with fresh wet produce. But I can't get over how mine really loves this.

Higgins protein egg bird food

I cannot get my birds to eat this. I guess they are picky.

Great stuff

I thought i was ordering the larger size but its always a good price for the small amount thats needed. I usually get the next size up and lasts me a year for one canary during molting and egg laying times. She gets calcioum powder with stuff at those times too so she doesnt get egg bound. Shes getting old

Protein Egg Bird Food

My cockatiel loves scrambled eggs but he is not at all pleased with the dry version. I think thete is probably nothing wrong with the item , I just have a picky bird.

Bird approves so far

Bird seems to like it sprinkled on her seed. Hopefully she continues to like it and I can find it on sale again

Higgins bird protein

I bought this for my female birds as they were laying eggs, and I wanted to give them , some extra protein I thought maybe they would not like it but they ate it up so it's a good treat for them

best add-in ever

i have 6 cockatiels, 3 rescue doves, a parrolet, a rescue parakeet, and a rescue yorkie. since i have added these dried eggs to my bird’s seeds they have been so much more content and molting more productive and less bothersome. my silkie dove is actually filling out and hardly bald at all!!
