Lafeber Cockatiel Pellet Berries Bird Food 12.5oz:
Who says pelleted diets need to be boring?
Pellet-Berries solved that problem
Pellet-Berries Sunny Orchard are an exciting result of combining the science of pellets with natural enrichment. Mixing whole cranberries, dates, apricots, and natural grains that your bird can individually taste, feel and see, to a pelleted food creates a delicious and wholesome meal that nearly all pelleted foods are missing.
81% pellets, 19% individual fruits and grains = 100% enriched nutrition
We understand the importance of pellets. In 1973, Dr. Lafeber Sr. developed the first pellets for companion birds to provide balanced nutrition in a single bite. We have come a long way since then in understanding not only bird nutrition but also bird’s psychological needs ~ the need to forage for their food. Meals should be exciting, not boring. With Pellet-Berries, your bird enjoys the crunch of pellets, seeds and grains, biting into real pieces of cranberries, apricots and more, and playing with the round shape of the whole Pellet-Berrie and the various shapes of the individual and wholesome ingredients. All of this is an important part of healthy foraging.
Veterinarians find foraging and enrichment are important for a bird’s health
Leading edge avian veterinarians across the country recommend foraging and enrichment to reduce a bird’s boredom and associated behavioral problems. Foraging often includes working, manipulating, feeling and tasting their food. Enrichment involves providing an environment that allows your bird to express its natural behaviors in a captive or caged condition. Pellet-Berries are found to satisfy both ~ foraging and enrichment.
Excellent nutrition in every bite of Pellet-Berries
We balance the omega 3 & 6 fatty acids for strengthening the immune system; chelated minerals for better absorption, stabilized vitamins for better longevity, and naturally preserve our foods. To insure our foods are fully nutritional and our high quality standards are met, an independent lab tests all of our recipes. Lafeber Company is one of the few food companies that produce all of their own food. All Lafeber products are proudly manufactured on Dr. Lafeber’s great grandfather’s farm in Cornell, Illinois. Carefully watching our food production from beginning to end allows us to produce the highest quality pet bird food available.
