New to Harrison's?
To select the right Harrison's formula for your bird please refer to the chart below.
Most small birds (budgies/canaries etc.) should start out on HIGH POTENCY SUPER FINE
Most small to medium species (cockatiel/dove etc.) should start out on HIGH POTENCY FINE
Most med/large species (African Greys/Amazons etc.) should start out on HIGH POTENCY COARSE
All birds switching to Harrison's should start out and remain on High Potency for a period of at least 8 months. After 8 months some birds may then switch to an Adult Lifetime formula.
Certain species (African Grey and larger Macaw for example) should remain on High Potency. Most birds can remain on High Potency indefinitely.
Feeding Harrison's for the first time:
Many birds will eat a new food without hesitation. Some birds require some assistance (diet conversion). If a bird does not immediately eat Harrison's please see the following diet conversion methods.
Diet Conversion: Small Bird
Diet Conversion: Large Bird
Diet Conversion: Tips and Tricks
Some birds are hesitant to change diets to a healthy formula.
Jump start the process by replacing your bird's previous seeds with JUMPSTART GREY MILLET for 3 - 5 weeks.
JUMPSTART OMEGA (a nutritious source of omega fats) may be fed during this period at 10% of the over diet until full conversion is accomplished.
General feeding directions:
- to help reduce waste, feed as distinct meals.
- birds may eat all they want, but use the table below as a guideline.
- feed fresh food daily (discard uneaten food), do not "top off".
