What Sizes Do the Tropican Parrot Food Pellets Come in?

Linda L. would like to know:

 

Is the size of the Tropican Lifetime Parrot granules much bigger than the Tropican Lifetime Cockatiel granules?

 

Hard to tell from pictures

 

Dear Linda,

The Cockatiel size granule is 2 mm, the Parrot size granule is 4 mm.

 

The stick sized pellet is about 3/4″ x ¼”.

In Response to “Do You Serve Your Pet Bird Chop?”

Sherry L. comments:

Yes, my birds are fed ‘chop’ (Arlo the grey, calls it ‘bobbity’) This is a new term for what I have done for 28+ years.

 

Chop is chopped veg, grains, and sometimes, a tiny bit of seed sprinkled on top or a bit of walnut, or something.

 

I used to cut the vegetables larger because Arlo was pretty accepting of lots of things, and I didn’t have a food processor.

 

I also (now) feed Arlo pelleted diet, along with the chop.

 

She also gets a small amount of fruit, and sometimes about an inch square of chicken breast (baked) or some steamed scallop (yum).

Why is It So Critical to Know Different Pet Bird Species?

This week a new Amazon driver “Patrick” handed off an envelope then said “I’ve never been here before – this place looks cool.”

Can A Macaw Parrot Get Cataracts?

Can you do anything for this?

 

I have a Catalina macaw she is 30.

 

Her right eye seems to be not as clear as her left. It’s like a very lite graying.

 

Sometimes she bumps into things.

 

Her diet consists of seeds and pellets she also gets prime vitamins in her water

 

Also a little treat from our dinner plates at night.

Thanks

Steven

Why Is This Jubilee (Hybrid) Macaw Having A Difficult Molt?

Donna B writes on 9/9/2018

I have a 6-1/2 year old Jubilee Macaw (named Bijou) who seems to be having a very difficult molt.

 

I am concerned his constant picking might turn in to plucking.

 

Bijou has begun constantly picking on himself and pulls out not only larger feathers but also small to mid size feathers and gray fluff.

 

As of now, however, I don’t see any skin abrasions or blood.
