Views on Pelleted Food Diets By EB Cravens

Psittacines in the wilds evolved over millions of years eating strictly raw, green and live foods supplemented with minerals, clay, bark and other organics.
To presume in captivity that we humans, no matter our scientific expertise, do anything other than shallowly try to mimic the exacting, seasonally changing diets of wild parrot species, is naïve to say the least.
This given, it is only logical that the further keepers distance themselves from raw and fresh bird diets, the more the exotic and necessary elements of nutrition present ONLY in live foods never processed, heated or dried will be lacking for our pets and breeder psittacines (ie. delicate enzymes, phytonutrients, etc.)

  1. Hi, EB! There’s one other factor. There could NEVER possibly be one formulated diet that would suit all species, genus, or families- they’ve evolved to eat/use different foods and micronutrients all over the world. They ALL need different foods.
