If you are feeding your parrots Totally Organics Pellets that don't even have artificial vitamins in them, then the Manu Mineral Block is a great supplement!
Some believe that the Manu Mineral Block is just what some feather pluckers and feather destructing birds need too.
I feed my birds mostly organic vegetables, fruits and food from our table. I supplement with Totally Organics Pellets and Totally Organics All In One Seed Mix because it is all just real food.
Many people disagree with the idea of feeding your birds pellets, well if they have artificial ingredients in them I can understand that.
But if your pellets are just real organic healthy herbs, grains and veggies cold processed, not baked, then you are really just feeding them organic food!
