good to find Harrison's bird pellets for sale online. No one is carrying it in my area, as far as I can tell.

Best Pellet Out There!
After researching many different foods, reaching out to companies to ask questions, and finally trying many pellet brands, I am most satisfied with Harrison's.
I feed this to my Quaker, Green Cheek Conure, and Hahn's Macaw and go through about 1 pound and a half a month with those three. I wish they sold the 5 lb bags here because it would make a world of difference for me!
I will say that because it does not contain sugar like many other pellets do that it can take some effort to switch birds over to it. Mine now prefer it, however and are healthier than ever!

Recommended by my vet
When I got my cockatoo, I knew she had a poor diet: her feathers were in bad shape, and she was pretty low energy for a bird. I asked the vet and vet tech regarding diet, and they both recommended Harrison's (coarse bird food, for the bigger birds) for 50%-75% of their diet, and a good mixed nut/seed/fruit/veg for the rest. When I got my lovebirds, I stuck with the Harrison's. Since the wild-caught lovebird wasn't interested in pelleted food, the vet recommended grinding into powder, and sprinkling it on the seed mix. That's worked well to get some nutrition into him, and he's learning to like the whole pellets.
And getting it online here is less expensive than my local exotic bird stores.

Harrison's Lifetime fine for my lovebird was first highly recommended by my aviary vet as the main diet with a small amount of Goldenfeast supplements. I listened and it turned out to a very good choice. In fact Harrisons is the only dry food my love bird will eat and she eats a lot of it. Everything has to be quite small for her to eat. She completed hand feeding at 4 1/2 weeks when I switched to Hi Potency fine and then regular fine after 6 months. I supplement with Goldenfeast Veggie Crisp Delite which contains BOTH fruit and veggies which I break up to small pieces. I crush the dried veggies with a pliers if too hard. Kaytee bird greens which is fine cut. Very small amount per my vet of Goldenfeast Hookbill Formula for seed. Too much seed can put fat around the heart. People food is fresh broccoli. unfrozen cooked peas and corn only when we eat supper, absolutely nothing else. She is put in the cage when we eat. Get fresh food out of the cage after a hour, bacteria. I do not let her eat on the table. Fresh water daily is mandatory. Huge cage with toys that you can lock door open as well as closed to drink and eat when wanted. Can not get in if door swings shut. Mine fly's around a good share or the time. My vet states she wished everybody would follow this diet.
