Check out this easy-to-follow Feeding Guide to see which TOP’s products are best for various sizes of birds. Regardless of size, our large, small and mini pellets are made with the exact same ingredients and can be eaten by any sized parrot.
TOP’s new Mini Pellets for Hookbills are USDA Organic Certified and perfect for the smallest of parrots like budgies, lovebirds, parrotlets and parakeets.
The proprietary pellets, which measure just 3/32″ in diameter, are made with 100 percent organic ingredients (and same ingredients as the other TOP’s pellets) from the United States and are cold-pressed to keep the natural nutrition intact.
Feed your small companion approximately as much as they want each day, as TOP’s Mini Pellets are a natural source of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other nutrients for a happy and healthy parrot. Naturally preserved with Rosemary, Rose Hips, Lemon and Orange Peel and are non-GMO.

Why we don’t have soy, peanuts or wheat in our pellets.
SOYBEANS: There is more and more disturbing data found about soybeans and products. Soybeans in their natural state contain large quantities of natural toxins and there is data that soy is cumulatively toxic when fed to animals.
For example, The PARROT SOCIETY NEW ZEALAND claims that soy products in bird food have caused such problems as immune system breakdown, failure of organs and multiplication of the birds’ own benign bacteria.
PEANUTS: It seems that more and more birds develop allergic reactions to peanuts, so we view them as a great treat for birds that are not allergic to them, but not part of their daily diet.
WHEAT: Wheat is a common allergen and contains about 80 different components that can cause a negative reaction. The number of people that are allergic to wheat and wheat products is raising daily in alarming amounts. If that is the case for humans, and we are not sure how it acts in birds, better safe than sorry.
Other pellets on the market contain fillers such as corn, soy, peanuts, added minerals and added artificial vitamins. TOP’s contains only real food ingredients.
