The Science of Pellets and the Natural Enrichment of Fruits and Grains
Who says pelleted diets need to be boring?
Pellet-Berries are an exciting result of combining the science of pellets with natural enrichment. Mixing whole cranberries, dates, apricots and natural grains that your bird can individually taste, feel and see to a pelleted food create a delicious and wholesome meal that nearly all pelleted foods are missing.
81% Pellets, 19% Individual Fruits and Grains = 100% Enriched Nutrition
Lafebers understands the importance of pellets. In 1973, Dr Lafeber Sr. developed the first pellets for companion birds to provide balanced nutrition in a single bite. Lafebers have come a long way since then in understanding not only bird nutrition but also bird's psychological needs - the need to forage for their food. Meals should be exciting not boring. With Pellet-Berries, your bird enjoys the crunch of pellets, seeds and grains, biting into real pieces of cranberries, apricots, and more, and playing with the round shape of the whole Pellet-Berry and the various shapes of the individual and wholesome ingredients. All of this is an important part of healthy foraging.
Veterinarians Find Foraging and Enrichment are Important for a Bird's Health
Leading edge avian veterinarians across the country recommend foraging and enrichment to reduce a bird's boredom and associate behavioral problems. Foraging often includes working, manipulating, feeling and tasting their food.
Enrichment involves providing an environment that allows your bird to express its natural behaviors in a captive or caged condition. Pellet-Berries are found to satisfy both foraging and enrichment.
No Artificial Flavors or Colors
What you see is what your get. When you see an orange bit of fruit in the Pellet-Berries, it is real apricots. The red cranberries in Sunny Orchard Pellet-Berries are the real deal - not something artificially colored or flavored and made to look like fruit.
Excellent Nutrition in Every Bite of Pellet-Berries
Lafebers balances the Omega-3 & -6 fatty acids for strengthening the immune system; chelated minerals for better absorptions, stabilized vitamins for better longevity and naturally preserve the foods. To ensure the foods are fully nutritional and high quality standards are met, independent lab tests are performed on all Lafeber's recipes.
Lafeber Company is one of the few food companies that produce all its own foods. All Lafeber products are proudly manufactured on Dr. Lafebers great grandfather's farm in Cornell, Illinois.
