|Could your bird stand to lose a little
weight? Perhaps he's not exercising
enough in (or out of) his cage. Or, you've
fed too many treats too often. Or, his
treats simply contain more calorie-packed
carbohydrates than his body needs.
Whether you need to bring your bird out of obesity
or ensure he never gets there, you should regularly
serve treats with minimal seeds and added sugar.
While these ingredients are extremely delicious –
and ok in limited quantities – they can quickly add
weight to your feathered friend's tiny frame. It's
never too late to restock your bird's treat cupboard
with healthier (yet still fun and tasty) offerings.
Best for Bread Fans If your bird loves to pick
apart bready treats, he'll adore high-protein certified organic Harrison
Bird Bread Mix which also makes a great
meal alternative or transitional food.
Cater to Crunch-Lovers A variety of healthful
treats offers powerful crunch and positive nutrition.
If he favors cookie-like treats, try Harrison Power
Treats, Parrot Biscuits. Just Fruits and Just Veggies offer big crunch in every freeze-dried piece.
Satisfying Softer Treats If you'd rather serve
fresh greens or moist treats, try Pet Greens Self-Grow Kit, Kabobs stacked with fresh
fruits and or veggies, or San Francisco
Bay Instant Treats.
Be sure treats never exceed 10% of your
bird's daily food intake.
