Gourmet Nutri-Berries are excellent as a complete meal or as a special treat. Most of all, your feathered friend will know it’s special when you serve Gourmet Nutri-Berries.
Parakeets (budgies), lovebirds and parrotlets might be small, but they can certainly have big appetites. Unfortunately, small birds are often fed a mostly seed diet, which is not only nutritionally deficient, it deprives these adventurous eaters the variety of beak and tongue sensations vital to their behavioral needs. We created Parakeet Nutri-Berries to offer the best of both worlds — balanced nutrition in a fun-to-eat form and full of flavor.
Great Foraging Food: Gourmet Nutri-Berries were designed to provide your bird with a variety of beak and tongue sensations. The irresistible berry shape and variety of ingredients meet their nutritional and behavioral needs. Your feathered friend will love holding, pulling and tearing at each berry. We believe your bird’s food can be both exciting and nutritious.
Our feathered friends crave savory foods, a variety of textures and food shapes that require work to eat. Gourmet Nutri-Berries meet each of these needs. Unlike loose seed mixes, it combines the solid nutrition of Classic Nutri-Berries with fruits, vegetables and other enticing ingredients birds just find irresistible.
The Lafeber difference is in the hulling. Even if a seed mix is coated with vitamins and minerals, as soon as the bird cracks the seed, the nutrition is lost along with the empty seed hull. By hulling the seeds and grains, and then coating them with stabilized vitamins, chelated minerals, and amino acids, your bird receives the balanced nutrition essential to good health in each bite. Parakeet Nutri-Berries are Omega 3 & 6 fatty acid balanced to promote healthy skin and feathers and they also include 10% pellets. Your bird will love that Parakeet Nutri-Berries serve up savory peanuts, hulled canary seed, cracked corn and more. You’ll love that they are nutritionally balanced like a pelleted diet but, unlike pellets, small birds find the Nutri-Berry shape and texture irresistible.

Ingredients like succulent pineapple and papaya, sweet carrots and raisins and hot bell peppers, just to name a few.
