Hot & Healthy Cockatiel Food is a round pellet about the size of a “BB” (3 mm). This food is for smaller hookbills and enjoyed by Cockatiels, Love Birds, and Parakeets.
Hot & Healthy Cockatiel Food is a mixture of healthy food and hot chilies and spices. Mix with your pet bird’s fruit and vegetables and watch how enthusiastically it is consumed. It is often added to warm water to make a “stew” because of the spicy flavor. It “soaks-up” easily, and makes a wonderful flavor and texture.
Your bird will be healthier, live longer, and be more enjoyable if it enjoys the food it eats.
This food has been scientifically formulated and tested. For the last twenty years, this food has extended the life of single adult birds and helped mated breeding pairs increase egg production.

These morsels are then offered to the bird along with fruits, vegetables, nuts, and occasional meats and treats.

The sizes, shapes and textures of Scenic Bird Food is meant to encourage the natural eating behavior of birds while guiding them toward nutritional responsibility.
Since there are many species living in diverse habitats around the world, it is not practical nor advisable to develop a different food for each one of them. Instead, birds in captivity must be cared for by offering them a stimulating variety of foods while controlling their lack of nutritional wisdom toward the foods we have to offer. And the foods we offer should meet their needs for eating and socialization, nutrition for growth and breeding, and energy requirements for playing and fleeing.
After twenty-five years, Scenic is a whole new way of feeding and caring for birds in captivity; we hope after trying our foods you will agree we have met these goals.
Scenic Bird Food is fed by owners, breeders, rescue centers, veterinarians and aviaries on four continents.
Having pioneered the revolution to replace seeds with manufactured foods nearly three decades ago, Scenic is now the predominant component of foods fed to exotic birds in zoological institutions, aquaria, and aviaries.
