Vegetables and Fruits

- See individual species for specific suggested items.
- Use of a gram scale is encouraged.

Omega 3

- Harrison's suggests a maximum of 10% of the daily diet be made up of rich sources of omega 3 items (organic chia, flax, hemp seeds etc. as well as certain nuts high in omega 3)
- Use of a gram scale is encouraged.

Additional Needs

- The importance of exercise in pet birds cannot be understated. Learn more about ways for your bird to exercise.
- Most bird species require regular access to direct sunlight for optimal health.
- Life enrichment, ie; foraging activities, puzzle toys, frequent social interaction and other enrichment methods are necessary to keep most pet birds healthy and happy. A lonely, bored pet bird is more sucseptible to illness than a busy, active bird.
