parrot food

Do you have birds that don’t want to eat veggies?

Many birds lack vitamin A, which also helps the body to absorb calcium. Therefore I like to provide plenty of beta-carotene in my parrot food. Luckily, there are more and more powdered organic vegetables on the market. The one I use often is carrot powder, which I mix into birdie bread or sprinkle it over the fresh food my parrots get in the morning. So, the birds which don’t eat much of the veggies get at least some of the nutrients which carrots provide.
