Ringneck Feeding Guide

Ensure your Ringneck Parrot’s diet is as varied as possible. Complete or pelleted food should be 60-80% of their diet, with the rest made up of sprouting seed, fruits, vegetables, seed, nuts and other treats.

For a more natural feeding experience, provide foraging opportunities, to encourages your Parrot to search for and retrieve their food. This natural behaviour would normally fulfil many hours of your bird’s time in the wild, so is a great way to prevent birdie boredom and the many associated unwanted behaviours.

Ringnecks love to pick through the sprays of the Millet or Naturals Pick n Fly.

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 your Ringneck’s food bowl, as many enjoy dunking their food before eating it. Always have fresh water available.
