Nutriberries
« on: June 13, 2016, 01:11:45 PM »

I have tried converting to pellets but Kiwi is having none of it, so have gone back to fruit & veggies with a few almonds/walnuts/seeds as top up.
I have seen Nutriberries in my local bird store and wondered what everyone's thoughts are on these as a complete diet

The only way i've converted is cold turkey and do not offer anything other than pellets. They won't eat pellets if they have the option of anything else.

However if you feed all of what you are saying then it's still a good diet, I was lucky with my baby, she was reared onto pellets and really isn't interested in seed at all.

If you need to feed seed are you using AS 30 ?
We pellet feed but give em one day of AS30.a week.
Ours love Nutriberries
There are all different flavours on Scarletts website

Thanks for your replies, so far I have tried 3 flavours but what I really want to know is would you consider it a healthy diet, Fruit Veg & Nutriberries ??

We are also giving her a vitamin supplement and a calcium supplement in her water

My previous Grey, Rosie who we had for 26 years had seed ( Johnston & Jeff fruit mix ) and a bowl of mixed fruit & veg everyday and her favourite Monkey nuts!!!

Since becoming a member of AGPC I have stopped Kiwi having any peanuts and only let her have Pecans/Almonds/Brazils as her treat but cannot get her to accept Pellets.

Have tried cold turkey but gave in after 4 days as she was sooo distressed and constantly calling for breakfast which is what she calls ALL meals haha

 My wife converted an utter peanut and sunflower junkie who was 26yrs old at the time onto Harrisons . She crushed just an odd one in orange juice and spoon fed him it  gradually reducing the orange juice as time went on .
