The Birdcare Company have been supplying Parrot supplements for over 20 years and have become the UK’s leading supplier in their sector. Avian vets across the country recommend their products and use them themselves on their clients.
The Birdcare Company work closely with bird keepers to discover what problems they have in birdkeeping and then they work out how they can resolve them, with one of their current products or by developing new ones.
The Birdcare Company’s main aim is to produce supplements that either prevent common Parrot illnesses or treat them should they develop. However they also produce a good selection of food and accessories.
Golden Tropic Lori Nectar Food is most suited to brush tongue Parrots such as Lorikeets because it doesn’t separate. It provides them with all the vitamins and minerals they require in a balanced diet, yet is still easily digested. It is a 360g or 1.5kg bag.
Banquet Parrot Food is a premium diet for most medium to large Parrots. It contains seeds, nuts and fruits that support granules, vitamins, minerals essential fatty acids and amino acids. It’s also available in a format for small Parrots such as Cockatiels and Lovebirds. Both are a 1.6kg mix.
