How long will a 5 pound tub last me for one cockatiel? I want to know how frequently I should restock
Answer by ChewyDec 18, 2019
This food can be offered as a full meal or as an important part of your bird’s diet. Many cockatiel owners have found that their birds love a combination of foods along with their pellets, such as Nutri-Berries, Avi-Cakes, and various fruits and vegetables. The manufacturer recommends giving three teaspoons daily and mixing this with Nutri-Berries or Avi-Cakes.

How long will this stay fresh?
Answer by ChewySep 02, 2022
Lafeber pellets have a “Best By” date stamped on the package when it is manufactured, approximately 14-15 months. The product should be stored in a sealed container, in a cool, dry area. Pellets can be refrigerated or frozen.

are these high in sugar?
Answer by ChewyMay 16, 2019
No sucrose (sugar) is added to the Premium Daily Diet. The molasses in the product gives flavor as well as a source of simple carbohydrates that the birds need. The cane molasses is less than 3% of the diet and provides longer chain carbohydrates. The total energy level is very important and for cockatiel Premium is 3267 Kcal/Kg. This is a healthy energy level for cockatiels and because Premium is a balanced food, cockatiels will not put on excess weight.

can I feed this food to my toucan
Answer by ChewyMar 10, 2019

Wonderful :)

My masked lovebirds love these pellets :) They eat them along with Lafeber's Pellet-Berries and Nutri-Berries for cockatiels, at the recommendation of their vet. They enjoy the variety, and I enjoy knowing they are receiving good nutrition!

Only bird food I use

My birds love this food. My vet recommended it for my two tiles 11 years ago and they have been on it ever since. Pellets are 1000x better than seeds so I highly recommend making the switch.

not the favorite but will nibble

I had started my conure on lafebers nutriberries and avicakes before starting these and I think that helped the conversion process. My conure will nibble on these throughout the day buy will eat her seeds and millet first.

My kids aren’t a fan

My birds are picking around these pellets... they used to eat the fruity pellets from zupreme and they’d eat them along with their seeds, they are not even trying these so I’m not sure what to do!

Stubborn Seed Junkies

I purchased this product because I am trying to encourage my seed-junkie 'tiel and his sidekick lovey to enjoy pellets in their diets. I chose the Lafeber Premium Daily Diet Cockatiel Food because of Lafeber's excellent reputation; the key benefits listed in the description; and, of course, the product's high customer rating. Unfortunately, my birds didn't read that information and want absolutely nothing to do with it. : -- (
