Yellow naped amazon parrot diet

I would look for preferably "organic" or at least "all-natural" dry bird mixes. It is far better to buy unfortified mixes and add a good quality bird supplement instead. However, our biggest grievance with their products is that they use sulphurated dried produce a process which also requires chemicals , but it is very difficult to find mixes with unsulphurated fruits and veggies.

With a little creativity you can put a mix together that offers superior nutrition without the chemicals typically found in commercial brands. You may also be so lucky to have a bird store near you that has alternative organic bird mixes. They are likely to be more expensive, but for the long-term health of your companion they are worth the investment.

If you are considering other organic bird mixes, I would recommend checking the ingredients quite carefully. Stay away from anything that has artificial colorings or flavorings. If ingredients are listed that you can't pronounce or don't sound like "real" food -- that's already a bad sign. There are plenty of NATURAL preservatives out there -- there is no reason to add inferior toxic stuff to foods other than cost savings. If cost is an issue as it is for many people - especially in multi-bird homes -- I would recommend going over the ingredients of a quality mix and purchasing them separately.

There is nothing wrong with mixing your own bird food. A little time can save you money over time. Fruits, vegetables and greens can easily be dehydrated at home, allowing you to preserve nutrition-dense produce that otherwise might spoil.

Vegetables, fruits and greens should be part of a parrot's daily diet. This includes apples, grapes, many garden vegetables such as spinach, watercress, field lettuce, poppy, chickweed, dandelions, carrots, corn on the cob, peas, endives and sweet potatoes.

Additional proteins should be offered such as cottage cheese, hardboiled eggs or monkey chow. Peanuts are also a valuable source of protein -- however, peanuts are often contaminated with aflatoxin, a fungal toxin. Aflatoxin is carcinogenic and causes liver damage in birds and other animals. Roasting reduces aflatoxin but does not eliminate it entirely. North American peanut producers are currently working on eliminating contaminated peanuts from their products.

Caution is advised when feeding peanuts. Some bird owners, opting to be on the safe side, are eliminating peanuts from their pets' diet. A cuttlebone, mineral block, gravel and oyster shell can be provided to provide the necessary calcium and minerals. Amazon Parrots Diet: Feeding your pet Amazon the right way. Many birds love their crunchiness, or they toss them into their water dish creating a "soup" of some sorts and then eat them once they are rehydrated.

Be prepared to change the water more often throughout the day. Dried fruits and vegetables have the advantage that they don't go off. You could literally leave them in their cages for days unless they get wet, of course. This surely comes in handy when traveling. Dried fruits and veggies also help convert "seed junkies" to a healthier diet. When you are at home, you can moisten the dried fruits and veggies with warm water to rehydrate them. Birds tend to LOVE warm fruits and veggies, maybe because it gives them flashbacks to the times when they were chicks and were fed warm regurgitated food by their bird parents.

It is important to keep in mind that some companies add artificial coloring to their dried fruits and veggies to make them visually appealing. Only purchase naturally dried fruits without any sulfur dioxide, as this preservative is known to increase hyperactivity, aggressiveness, feather shredding or picking due to allergies. Sprouting is an excellent way to provide nutrient-dense foods to birds who are less cooperative in eating its daily portions of fresh foods.

Germinated seeds offer its own unique set of valuable nutrition and are quicker to obtain and less likely to spoil.
