Parrots & Cockatoos
Parrots & Cockatoos have a mainly granivorous (seed) and frugivorous (fruit) diet. However in the breeding season they supplement their diet with additional protein, vitamins & minerals from fresh green plant material, mineral grit, insects and sometimes even meat. Our parrot foods include nutritionally-balanced Crumbles and Pellets for everyday diet. For breeding birds we recommend supplementing with Parrot Soft Food or Egg & Biscuit to cater for the increased nutritional demands. For hand-raising young birds we have developed Passwell Hand Rearing Food and Wombaroo Granivore Rearing Mix to supply the elevated protein, vitamin & mineral requirements of growing chicks. We also make a range of treats and dietary supplements that can enhance the health & well-being of cage and aviary birds.

Using Fruit & Nut to convert Birds onto Pellets
Passwell Fruit & Nut is ideal to feed to parrots when converting from a seed diet to Passwell Parrot Pellets. When doing this remove other treat items and seed from the aviary. Offer a small amount of Passwell Fruit & Nut in a large bowl, and do not top up until the birds have had a chance to try everything in the mix. Then offer more Fruit & Nut, but also gradually increase the quantity of Passwell Parrot Pellets in the bowl. As the birds start eating the pellets, cut back the fruit & nut mix to no more than 25% of the total diet.
