Description

A bird shall not live on seed alone, which is why you need to feed your feathered friend Lafeber Premium Daily Diet Parakeet Bird Food. There’s no doubt that parakeets, lovebirds and parrotlets love high-fat seeds, but a wild bird also spends her day busily foraging for local fruits, flowers and other plant matter, as well as insects and worms–all of which supplement her diet with essential vitamins, mineral and proteins. Lafeber’s Premium Pellets take the guesswork out of offering your bird complete and balanced nutrition with a veterinarian-developed, independently tested formula that’s designed to offer your birdie buddy everything she needs to thrive inside and out.

Key Benefits
  • Pelleted diet is made with a high-quality blend of natural ingredients like ground non-GMO corn, soybean meal, oat groats and whole egg–the most digestive form of protein.
  • Omega-3 and 6 fatty acids promote healthy skin and feathers, while essential chelated minerals are quickly absorbed for maximum benefit.
  • Made and hand-packed in the USA on the Lafeber farm using sulfite-free vegetables; naturally flavored and preserved.
  • Veterinarian developed to deliver exceptional nutrition; can be served as a complete diet or offered in combination with a seed blend, millet spray or fresh fruits and veggies.
  • Independently tested to ensure quality and nutrition you can trust; contains no artificial food colors or dyes.

    Withholding judgement for now..

    By on

    Trying to incorporate pellets into the diet of my mostly seed-eating budgies. I can't tell if they are liking them or not yet...will know better in a couple weeks. Quality seems good and it's healthy to not let the little peeps eat only seeds.

    Wonderful base diet for picky parakeet with dietary issues

    By on

    Love these pellets for our budgie! He has developed some dietary issues and these have been my go-to. He won't eat them dry, so I just pour a little hot water overtop, cover, and let sit a few minutes until crumbly.. usually mix in some mashed beans/peas, rice/oats, whatever. Keeps in the fridge for a few days. He loves when I top it with chia or sesame. Very versatile base diet! Has been a lifesaver!

    Lefeber premium diet

    Unfortunately my birds haven’t eaten this yet. I’ve continued to put it in their dishes but they ignore it. I was hoping they’d try it. But haven’t found a pellet they’ll eat yet.

    He likes it!

    Thought going from seed to pellet would be difficult but George loves this stuff! Its also easier to see how much he's eaten compared to seed.

    Sadly, my parakeets refuse this even after 2 weeks.

    By on

    Was hoping to get them to eat this for the better nutrition (my finches LOVE the finch formula) but no matter how I try to hide it with current seed mix or offer it on it's own, they refuse it. I believe it is because the pieces are just too large and don't look like a food item to them. They will pick a piece up, roll it around in their beak for a moment and then spit it out with disgust. They are of course, very spoiled though - they get daily fresh fruit and vegetables along with millet and seed - so it may just be my birds.

    Part of my Birds' Daily Diet

    By on

    I have several cockatiels, but buy the Parakeet size pellets because I've found a lot less waste and mess due to this size pellet being smaller. The ingredients are exactly the same and so are the nutritional values, compared to the Cockatiel size. I make a 50/50 mix of these pellets with another brand and all my birds go right for it.

    Perfect for parakeets! (Cockatiels too!)

    By on

    So, just got this product not long ago, my cockatiel already is munching on the pellets, and my 2 parakeets have inspected them. The pellets are the PERFECT size for parakeets little beaks, and good for cockatiels who prefer small pellets. My parakeets will be eating them soon, i just know it! Also, they come from Lafeber, which is a great bird company. Will buy again.

    Perfect parakeet pellets!

    By on

    Love these pellets and do so my parakeets. Their diet is mainly seed but I mix in pellets for extra nutrition and variety.
