Parrot Breeder Pellets are designed to support successful breeding of parrots by fulfilling the increased nutritional demands of breeding season, helping to protect your hen from egg binding and supports membrane development, shell formation, and chick development.


A healthy and balanced diet is key to a successful breeding season.

Some examples of key nutrients for breeding birds and their young are increased protein to stimulate breeding activity, calcium and Vitamin D3 for egg formation, egg laying and prevention of egg binding.

Parrot Breeder Pellets have been developed for use from 6 weeks prior to the start of breeding through to the weaning of chicks. This diet provides balanced nutrition to ensure optimum health of parents and their chicks.
