Amazon Parrot Feeding Guide

Published on Thursday, 14th March 2019
An Amazon Parrot’s diet need to be as mixed as you can make it. Use a pelleted or complete diet as the base, say 60-80% of their diet, and the remaining 20% of the diet needs to be fruits, nuts, seeds (including sprouting seeds) and other treats.
 
Pelleted and Complete Food
Avian vets class Kaytee Exact Rainbow Parrot as one of the best complete Parrot foods. Its range of ingredients are of the highest quality and include Omega-3, which helps give better colouring, feathering and supports your Amazon’s overall wellbeing. 

 
ZuPreem FruitBlend is made up of 5 shaped nuggets and oranges, apples, grapes and bananas. It’s all preserved with Vitamin C so your Amazon stays fit and healthy.
 
Lafeber NutriBerries can be used as a complete food or treat. Four tasty flavours are available, Original, Tropical, Sunny Orchard, El Paso and Garden Veggie. Their small shape makes them easy to hold in feet or beak and they have the 40 essential nutrients birds need. 



 
Soaking Seed / Sprouting Seed
Dish up a scrumptious meal for your Parrot with sprouting seed. Simply soak it for two days, rinsing occasionally and then serve it up to your bird. It has a low fat content and high protein, vitamin, enzyme and mineral content.
 
Vegetables
If your Parrot has never tried vegetables before then the Vegetable Crunch Treat is a good way of introducing them to it.
 
Other vegetables include kale, spinach, broccoli and carrot. 

 
Fruits
There are loads of different fruits for you to introduce to your Amazon Parrot. These are
Apple
Banana chips
Pineapple
Figs
Mango
Coconut
Papaya

 
Fresh fruits are great, but if you need a little more convinience take a look at our range of dried fruits. 


 
Seed
Parrot Premium Professional has been developed to our exact requirements, with only the very best ingredients used, including rowan seed and berries.
 
Another yummy mixture is the Tidymix Seed Diet. It’s made using 32 ingredients and is 99% edible, reducing waste and mess. 

 
Nuts
Parrots love finding nuts inside foraging toys or in a feeding dish, they make a great snack between meals. Some popular ones to try are  cedar, macadamia and walnut

 
Other Treats
Other beak-wateringly good treats your Parrot can enjoy tucking Oven Fresh Birdie Munchies, Fruit Cups and Bird Greens

Please Note:
We would always advise buying the smallest bag/pack possible to trial your Parrot with. It can take some time and persistence to introduce a new food. It may be worth having a second bowl of water next to you Amazon’s food bowl, as many enjoy dunking their food before eating it. Always have fresh water available.
