Premium Bird Foods
EXTRUDED BIRD FOOD? What is extruded?
Extruded foods have been proven to provide superior 100% complete nutrition when compared with seed blends. Extruded foods combine quality ingredients and nutrients to produce a processed nugget that contains precise levels of each required nutrient. This ensures that no matter what your pet chooses to eat, each nugget contains exactly the same amount of proper nutrition. This is unlike a seed blend where your pet may only choose certain seeds or shapes that it likes, which may or may not provide the necessary nutrition required. Extruded foods also do not contain seed hulls and will create less mess during clean up and a better value at retail (as your not paying for waste).
We stock a large range of premium bird foods for all types of birds. These consist of specially formulated pellets consisting of all essential proteins, vitamins and minerals needed to keep your feathered friend in top condition. Brands include Vetafarm, Pretty Bird, Living World, Tropimix, Harrisons Organic, Roudybush, Attraction, Nekton.

ROUDYBUSH PREMIUM PELLETS
Benefits of Roudybush
For decades the standard diet for most birds kept in captivity has been a mixture of seeds and nuts. This diet was based on the assumption that that is what these birds eat in their natural environments. Over the past several years more information has become available from better observations of natural feeding patterns and controlled research performed in captivity. Nutritional deficiencies seen in birds kept on seed diets have been better characterized and documented, making it clear that these diets are harmful; however, many people continue to feed seed and nut diets, with or without other nutritional supplementation. Unfortunately, the effectiveness of giving a bird mineral blocks, cuttlebone, seed mixes with vitamin fortification, or vitamins in the drinking water all relies on the bird’s willingness to choose the right things to eat in the proper amount. Most birds eat to obtain energy (calories) and will choose the highest fat, highest calorie foods available. They will often do their best to avoid your best efforts to improve their nutrition. Another problem with supplements is that you can overdo them and cause toxicities with some nutrients, which is just as harmful as a deficiency. Roudybush diets provide your birds with safe levels of nutrients that are needed for good health.
NEKTON-LORI Complete diet for lories and hanging parakeets
Nekton provides a new way – the natural way, to feed lorikeets and other nectar eating birds. Nekton is a soluble powder that is mixed with water to make nectar. It is a fully balanced diet and no supplementation is needed. Because there are no fillers like lory wet and dry mixes, means that all the nutrients are absorbed and there is no mess left behind. This is a high quality product made in Germany that replicates a lorikeets natural diet. Nekton has put a lot of reasearch into making the best lorikeet food available. A little goes a long way. 500g will last 1 lorikeet for approximately 2 months.
Lories are among the most specialised of all the parrots in their feeding habits as is seen by their brush tongues and digestive systems. Breeding successes in the past few years, particularly with species known to be difficult to breed, have shown that the nutrition must be as close to the natural sources as possible.
This carefully thought-out combination of carbohydrates, fatty acids, protein, vitamins and mineral elements is entirely suited to the nutrient requirements of lories and hanging parakeets. All ingredients are in human-grade quality and in such a form that they are easily synthesised and absorbed by the body. Just add tepid water to the powder, stir slowly and you have a complete diet.
In addition, this diet has two tremendous advantages over other feeding methods:
1.There is no food matter left sticking to the beak to foster fungus growth.
2.All the ingredients are fully assimilated by the body so that the faeces consist of little more than water, meaning no smell or messy droppings to dirty the cage or aviary.
Nekton also makes the highest quality Vitamin and Mineral supplements. Nekton S (Vitamin Supplement), Nekton E (Vitamin E Supplement encourages breeding), Nekton MSA ( Calcium & D3 Supplement). High Quality Supplements, Made in Germany.
