I know you want to do what’s right when it comes to feeding your birds. That’s why you found this website. You want your birds to be happy and healthy with beautiful feathers, cooperative behaviors and lovable personalities. Properly balanced avian nutrition will give you all of these things. But what is ‘properly balanced avian nutrition’?
According to avian veterinarians malnutrition is the leading cause of illness, disease and premature death of birds everywhere. (1) This statistic is tragic! Especially since avian malnutrition can easily be prevented.
For good health and wellness birds must consume hundreds of nutrients everyday. The reason avian malnutrition is so prevalent is that most birds are not fed all nutrients they need.
Did you know that seeds, pellets, fresh fruit and vegetables only provide a portion of the nutrients a bird needs for optimal health and wellness? Did you know that feeding a diet of mostly seeds is the historical cause of avian malnutrition.(1) But now there’s another type of nutritional deficiency commonly occurring in birds. Did you know that over-supplementing your bird causes another type of nutritional imbalance? Feeding formulated diets in conjunction with readily available avian vitamin and mineral supplements causes an excess in certain nutrients or unbalance of nutrients which also causes avian malnutrition.

All parrots – Amazons, African greys, macaws, conures, cockatoos, cockatiels, budgerigars, love birds, lories, quakers and all other species – need to consume a variety of nutritionally balanced and wholesome foods daily.
Balanced Avian Nutrition
Each species of bird has general nutritional needs. And each individual bird within a species has specific nutritional requirements. However, there is one food you can add to your bird’s diet – right now – that they will benefit from. All the birds under your care will be helped from eating this food because it’s the most nutrient rich food on the planet. You’ve got to be feeding properly grown sprouts to your birds or they’re missing vital nutrients.
Our sprouting blends have been formulated to fill a specific need. If using diet and nutrition for health and healing, is what really matters – you’ll want to feed our sprouting blends. Why?
Because All Sprouting Blends are Not Created Equal
Sprouts are the most nutrient dense food on the planet. However, when you’re feeding sprouts to birds there are certain properties and qualities you want the blend to have.
Questions to ask:
1. Is it a USDA Certified Organic product?
2. Has it been formulated to provide complete protein? Why is complete protein important?
3. Do the ingredients have compatible germination rates and growing needs? Or does the blend have ‘filler’ ingredients that won’t germinate. These ‘filler’ ingredients can start spoiling very quickly, because they can’t grow and this creates bacteria and mold in the sprouts. Poorly formulated sprouting blends is why many avian vet hate sprouts.
4. Does the company exclaim that “Soaked Seed is more Nutritious that Sprouts”? If so be wary, this statement is untrue. Learn the scientifically documented truth here – Soaked vs Sprouted Seed
5. Who formulated the blend?
6. What is their background in holistic avian nutrition? Be wary of the information on ‘anonymous’ websites – no author, no footnotes for their data, no contact phone number or address.
7. Has the company done any clinical work documenting the healthful properties of their sprouting blends?
