    Diet  Allocation

    Most small birds as follows:
    70% - High Potency Mash
    20% - Fruits and Vegetables
    10% - Source of omega 3 

    Daily Feeding Amounts

    CANARY: 1 - 1 g
    FINCH: 1 - 1g
    BUDGIE: 1 - 3g
    COCKATIEL: 2 - 5g
    LOVEBIRD: 2 - 5g
    DOVE/PIGEON: 5 - 15g

    Vegetables and Fruits

    - For most small birds, Harrison's suggests offering 20% fresh, nutrient-dense, organic vegetables and sprouts.      
    - See individual species for specific suggested items.
    - Use of a gram scale is encouraged.

    Omega 3

    - Harrison's suggests a maximum of 10% of the daily diet be made up of rich sources of omega 3 items (organic chia, flax, hemp seeds etc. as well as certain nuts high in omega 3)
    - Use of a gram scale is encouraged.

    Additional Needs

    - The importance of exercise in pet birds cannot be understated. Learn more about ways for your bird to exercise.
    - Some bird species require regular access to direct sunlight for optimal health.
    - Life enrichment, ie; foraging activities, puzzle toys, frequent social interaction and other enrichment methods are necessary to keep most pet birds healthy and happy. A lonely, bored pet bird is more sucseptible to illness than a busy, active bird.

    Perfect for my bird! 6/5/2018
    My cockatiel Mel had his beak damaged by a larger bird in my aviary. It was very difficult to get him to eat any other dry foods after. Wet foods quickly became a mess. So we switched to Mash and he has been doing well for 8 months now. Starting to molt for the first time ever!
