Sunny Orchard Parrot Nutri-Berries 10 oz
Freeze them, great for foraging
I buy nutriberries in 3 and 20 lb sizes. I found the 20 lbs sizes crumble by time you hit the bottom of the bag and insects get in them easily so I prefer the slightly more expensive 3 lb. My military macaw won't eat the crumbs. However, if I keep them in the freezer, these problems are minimized and make them easier to handle. I even went so far as to purchase a small freezer for that purpose (about $170) and buy them on sale in larger amounts. I give the crumbs to my wild avian friends on a platform feeder and they love it.
Nutriberries are excellent for foraging. I place them in a toy from Caitec called "Rings of Fortune" which has a mini tower that you can fill with the Parrot size nutriberries. I gradually converted my birds from feeding from a cup to using this toy for feeding. They quickly figure out how to manipulate the toy to get the treats. This is one of the few toys made that stands up to my Macaws.
I also hide nutriberries and nuts among the blocks of hanging chew toys so they can find them. I also place chew toys on a flat surface and sprinkle in half eaten chew toy parts with nutriberries and nuts thrown in for the birds to discover.

I have been using Nutriberries for my birds for years and am so happy with this product. I can use as a treat for my caique or an additional food source for my yellow-collared macaw. My cockatiels and Senegal parrot also love them. I make sure NEVER to run out!!!!!

Easy, tasty, nutritious
Easy to store and pour, my cockatiel and Jardine's Parrot both love this flavor of Nutriberry. My birds like to cherry pick; the Nutriberry prevents that.

Good nutrition and fun for birds
My Pionus is instantly suspicious of any treat or goodie I place in her treat bowl. However, Nutriberries are the one treat she instantly took to and will acutally do tricks for! They're a great treat and encourage her to use her feet and beak to get each seed and fruit chunk. They do tend to create a little bit more of a mess on the perch, and floor - but hey, that's something we're used to as bird owners, so it's not a big deal.
