    - 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)

    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.
