What you put in your conure’s food bowl might be met with a rebel yell, if it is not to his liking. These foodies love texture, which is why he’s inclined to pick out all the seeds and ignore the more nutritionally complete pellets in a mix. Fortunately, Conure Nutri-Berries were designed with your bird’s craving for taste and texture in mind. Conure Nutri-Berries offer the crunching sensation birds love without sacrificing balanced nutrition.
The Lafeber difference is in the hulling. A seed mix might be coated with vitamin and minerals, but as soon as the bird cracks the seed, the nutrition is lost along with the empty seed hull. By hulling the seed and grains and then adding essential vitamins and minerals, Nutri-Berries keep the nutrition in each bite. Conure Nutri-Berries also add 20% pellets to the taste and texture mix, and they are sized just right for your conure,caique, Senegal, Meyer’s or other small- to medium-parrot to hold and pull apart to eat; a simple yet effective way to promote foot health, as well as work his tongue and beak.
Classic Nutri-Berries are nutritionally balanced like pellets, just not ground up. Both pellets and Nutri-Berries contain seeds and grains. In pellets, they are finely ground before being formed into a pellet. Most of the seeds and grains in Nutri-Berries are kept whole because Dr. Lafeber discovered how to nutritionally balance them without grinding, and hulling them keeps the nutrition right where it belongs — in each and every bite. We also balance the omega 3 & 6 fatty acids to boost your bird’s immune system and to promote healthy skin and feathers. Our foods are naturally preserved and free of artificial colors, so you can feel good about offering them to your cockatiel or other small- to medium-sized bird.
