Successful Pellet Conversion
Hello! I just wanted to share that recently I have successfully converted my Grey to eating High Potency Harrisons Pellet in a faster time than I could imagine. When I first adopted her, she was on a seed only diet. It took a VERY long time for her to even try pellet, (in which I tried everything from Pretty Bird, Zupreem and some Kaytee products, without really knowing anything about Organic Pellets)
For about a year now I have had her eating a small handfull of seeds, nuts, and dried fruits (Goldenfeast medleys and Kaytee Fiesta for parrots) and her main diet has been a mixture of Pretty Bird for Africans, Zupreem Fruity and Zupreem Naturals. I really thought I did a good job with having her eating pellets, until I learned a lot about Organics. Even my Avian Vet has been happy all this time with the pellets I have used so I never knew I wasnt doing a good job. So, I have been combining Roudybush in her pellets for about a month now but she doesnt seem to touch them.
3 days ago I went to a parrot store nearby my town and decided to try the Harrison's HP. Of course I was shocked with the price, and was hoping she would eat my small one pound bag sold for nearly $15. Yikes! That night she was eating them, even when they were combined with her normal Pretty Bird and Zupreem pellets. Do they taste good for most birds?? I now wonder if I should completely just eliminate her other pellets... I have so much left though, at least 4 pounds worth!! And of course she seems to like them, she will choose to eat them even if there are seeds in the bowl next to the pellet bowl.
Also, if I begin buying ONLY Harrisons, how much should I get at a time to keep it the freshest longest, but get the most for my buck? Because it is of course very pricey. Thank you!!
