He absolutely loves them. He’s been eating them for a few months now and just went through a full molt and his color is radiant. The sprouts really helped because he used to refuse new things but he converted pretty quickly and they make up about 30% of his diet which is now full of 100% natural and organic food and no seed. The best part is I’ve followed the instructions and never had a bad batch. They always look great.

 

Thanks!

Leslie,

Here’s a little more history about why I started using sprouts. I have had Oscar for 10 years and he has always been a very picky eater. He would never eat anything I ate and wouldn’t touch pellets, fruits or veggies. He wanted the commercial seed from the pet store. About 6 months ago I realized that Oscar was withdrawn and quiet. He literally disappeared into the background so I began looking more into his diet and tried to understand the dietary requirements of parrots. Little did I know that was a very controversial question that had answers that shocked me. While the vets always pushed me to make him eat pellets I was secretly fine with him refusing them because I couldn’t imagine eating chalk and basic nutrition tells you that heating anything changes the nutritional content. Besides, I’ve never seen a pellet tree so I knew it wasn’t natural.

 

The more I read the more I realized there wasn’t a perfect answer because parrots in the wild travel distances to find food and obviously eat what is in season. So I began reading everything I could in an attempt to educate myself enough to do what I thought was best for Oscar.

 

I found sprouts when I began looking for “super foods”. Growing them is surprisingly easy and you don’t need fancy towers to do it. I bought your starter kit and gave it a shot. With some patience and a little tough love Oscar started to recognize it as food and began eating them. He really likes to “shell” them. We were hooked after that. He now has a diet broken down into 2 feedings like he would experience in the wild, with his morning food of 50% sprouts and a combination of 7 veggies and 3 fruits and a tree nut. His dinner is a cooked grain concoction that changes every week and everything is organic.

 

We just had blood work done, where we learned Oscar is a girl! But we also found that all of her blood work was within perfect levels, with no vitamin deficiencies. Our vet, who always insist her patients are on pellets, told me not to change a thing and that she only recommends pellets because most people don’t have or take the time to care for their birds like this.

 

Oscar went through a full molt last month and her feathers are radiant now, they actually have an iridescent glow to them.

Thank you for the wonderful product, insight and opinions you provide in your book. A few minutes a week and my bird has never been happier or healthier. He even sings while he eats.

 

Thank you,

Janet & Oscar
