Animalzone Foods
« on: January 18, 2012, 11:00:03 AM »

There has been a lot of interest in the Animalzone pellets and how to feed them etc. so I thought I'd put this post up to try and clarify it a bit for you.

Plumage Enhancer is a balanced parrot diet with palm fruit extract.  The plam fruit extract is rich in beta-carotene and vitamin E which results in improved feather growth, decreased or stopped feather plucking, brighter colouration, less drying of the skin and less feather dust.  Plumage Enchancer can be used as the only source of food or in combination with Parrot Museli and fresh fruit and vegetables.  Make sure that 60% of your bird's total daily intake consists of a balanced diet.

Parrot Museli is a balanced, complete, tasty and nutritious diet.  The roasted grains essential vitamins, minerals amino acids, spirulina, anti-oxidents and prebiotcs are pressed into a pellet with a cold process preserving nutrients.  The Parrot Museli contains additional roasted and rolled grains, roasted peanuts, dried vegetables and dried fruit sticks which are added for variety and form part of the balanced diet.

Parrot Fruit Chunks & Bits is a balanced and complete parrot diet with real fruit.  Parrot Fruit Chunks and Bits is a revolutionary balanced and complete food for parrots.  Dried fruit form an integral part of the food, resulting in a tasty food chunk with all the nutrients your parrot needs.  The addition of dried fruits gives Parrot Fruit Chunks & Bits a unique texture and smell and improves palatability.  Parrot Fruit Chuks & Bits can be used as the only source of food or in combination with Parrot Muesli, Parrot Food Natural and fresh fruit and veg.

Parrot Food Natural.  Is a balanced diet for parrots.  It is the most natural balanced bird food available on the market.  There is no palm oil extract in the natural pellets.

Those are the four main foods for parrots and as you can see they can all be fed as a complete meal or mixed together.  Adding fresh fruit and veg is not necessary but of course it is good to give your birds the added variety, textures and tastes to keep them happy.

There is also the AZ Parrot Cereal it is a balanced Parrot and Parakeet diet (I use this too) :thumbsup:

Parrot Cereal is a fantastic balanced diet that can be fed to all parrot species, it's soft texture is great for young and old birds.
The Cereal consists of a balanced ratio of roasted soybeans, maize and peas and Pellets are added to provide all the essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids, spirulina and anti-oxidants. (the Pellets are already in it, so you don't need to add more)

All you have to add to the cereal is warm water to cover the cereal and then just leave it for about 10 minutes  :thumbsup:

You can also add fruit and veg to give your birdie added veriety if you want to  :thumbsup:

You don't have to buy one of each as each one is a complete diet. Just see which he prefers.

I would start him off on the Plumage Enhancer and only that first off, make sure he's eating it and then you can add the museli and fruit sticks if you want to to give him variety.

Hi Lydia

I get the plumage enhancer and the fruit chunks and mix them together - but as Glyn says, you only need one of them, as all are complete diets in their own right.  Just give normal vegetables aswell, and the odd piece of fruit

so.....if you get a baby thats brought up on seed.....start them on the cereal because its soft and then move on to the plumage enhancer (small pellets as they make less waste - I think Tezza said this in another thread) and fruit and veg with the occasional palm nut oil spread on toast.     This is the type of diet for a AG.   Now.....its says that 2/3 of a cup per day? but how much is a cup.  A tea cup, mug, pint mug.  What does 2/3rd equal.  Any ideas please?   :bye:

Good for you Lesley - its great to research like you are doing

I put 4 ice cream scoops in to their bowls. Then I know how much they are eating, and I just add more if needed.  That way, the pellets don't go stale at the bottom etc, as the bowls aren't full and just topped up all the time.  The following day, there is usually just powder left with my two - so, I empty and put four scoops in again

Thank you all so much for your advice.   It will definately not go amiss.   I will use a normal size ice cream scoup.    I have bought Az cereal, plumage,fruit chunks, muesli.  Just in case of need....... I am not  :panic: honest!!!.  Got the cook book and also one of the fruit hard things to hang in cage....forgot the name as I have thrown the box away.  Calcium perch, iodine perch, two cement perches, one twisty, a wooden one with balls on it, a hangy thing, swing, rope loop, ash perches.   the cage, of course.... and all I need now is an ice cream scoup and a............baby.   Thanks again, you are all so helpful.   :cheekkiss: :bye:

I just wanted to say that Sensi LOVES this food. He has the Fruit chunks and Muesli. I have also mixed the Natural large in with the Fruit chunks.
This is the Pellet type food he has eaten. I had tried Harrisons and Kaytee before, but he was not interested at all.
I shall continue to buy my food from your shop. The prices are brilliant too  :thumbsup:
A big  :ty from Sensi.

Charlie is an night eater so I put 2 hanfulls in his bowl in the evening ( so 2/3 small cup sounds right) then check it in the morning. Normally it will be a bit left witch I leave till lunch time andy if its anything left I remove it (keep to make birdie bread)
If he was a day eater I would just do the same but give the handfulls in the morning instead of at night if you get me:) lol
