Questions & Answers

Hi. Does this food come in 20# or 25# bags? Not convenient to have small bags - more $$$ in long run as well
Answer by ChewyOct 15, 2018
At this time we only carry the 3 pound bag of this food.

How long does one bag last for a conure usually?
Answer by ChewyJul 17, 2019
Fill your pet bird’s food container with as much food as it will consume in a 24 hour period. Usually for conures, cockatiels, lovebirds and other small hookbill birds, the portion may range between ¼ to ½ cup of food per bird. A 3 lb bag will yield 6 cups.

is this good for lovebirds?
Answer by ChewyNov 08, 2019
This bird food is formulated with the specific health needs of conures and cockatiels in mind, however it's suitable for lovebirds and other small hookbill birds.

Are these good treats for indian ringnecks?

Lovebirds really like this food

Started giving this food to my lovebirds after reading reviews which most of them were positive reviews. This large number of positive caught my interest, so I decided to buy the small bag. Once, I confirmed that my lovebirds really like this food, decided to buy the large bag which allows you to save a good amount of money. Will continue to buy this brand of bird food as long as it stays affordable!

I just bought this bag of bird seed in June and unfortunately found it infested with maggots and beetles along with the bag being infested they made their way into my bedroom and continue finding them throughout the house. Chewy of course refunded my money and told me not to worry about returning the item and that I could donate it 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ the refund was nice but did not make up for the hours of cleaning I had to do for the absolute infestation it caused.

Good bid food

I gave my bird some of this food and he loved it I figured I would change it up a little and mix this with what I've been feeding and he likes it

Contains sunflower seeds

I've used this in the past with no issues. This batch had sunflower seeds in it and it's not supposed to. Which leads me to question the quality control and what else is in there that's not supposed to be there.

Little black beetles

I've gotten this a few times because it seems good quality fairly priced, but I noticed little black beetles in the food! I keep it zipped up and in a plastic container. I can't believe I just now noticed when I'm getting at the end of the bag. It was quite the colony of beetles no fault of chewys just the brand I guess

Recommended by Avian Vet

I have a 14 year old Female Green Cheek Conure and she absolutely loves this food. My avian vet recommended this food because he said something about females should not be eating foods with sun flower seeds and that this food was a better choice. There is a nice variety in this mix and my girl will drop all the papaya out of her dish but she is happy and healthy and eating this food at least 4 years. I plan to keep her on this food since she likes it and vet gave the ok.

little yellow bird approved

My yellow ring-neck loves this food. It is one of 3 types I keep in her cage at all times. She is a picky spoiled little person that loves to eat one thing and move to another, then sit and coo. So I know she is happy. I also keep her treat bowl filled with yogurt dipped banana, strawberry and mango treats. She loves fresh but really like the freeze dried ones as well. Ring-necks have a tendency to be a little picky, but I got lucky and found things she loves. Plus this food smells really good and orange which she loves. Good product.

Great seed mix!

I feed this (in addition to pellet) to my flock of budgies and cockatiel. Seed advertised for budgies is almost all millet and canary grass seed, and my flock loves the larger seeds and other bits and pieces. Four stars because the pellet bits are way too hard for my cockatiel and I wish that the mix had a lot less millet.

He loves it!!

Frankie the green Quaker Parrot loves this food. Because he's so picky, I was worried he may not like it. I hand fed him a few pieces before filling his dish. Well, he couldn't eat from my hand fast enough!! I use the majority of it for training treats, and he couldn't be happier!!
