Appetit diets are made with natural ingredients that
your bird will go wild over! Created with tempting
exotic spices, these diets are irresistibly delicious
and complete with vital nutrients that bird owners
demand. A well rounded Avian Diet should include:
Veggies, Fruits, Grains, Seeds, and Pellets. Take
a good look at the ingredients in Beak Appetit, and
you will see why it is approved by Avian Vets.

the Nutritional Needs of Parrots
purpose of this document is to provide education and
insight as to the importance of cooked diets in relation
to the health and well being of exotic parrots. BEAK
APPÉTIT bird foods are created to meet the nutritional
and psychological needs of exotic birds. More than
any other type of caged bird, parrots get special
pleasure from eating a variety of food items. It is
very apparent that parrots find cooked foods psychologically
satisfying and nutritionally needed.
Energy comes from proteins, fats
and carbohydrates. The proper balance of dietary
protein, fat, carbohydrate and fiber is essential
for the optimal health and longevity of a bird.
Excessive dietary fat creates too much weight gain,
fatty liver infiltration and other problems. Protein
is mandatory for proper skeletal and muscular development,
and is particularly important for baby birds. However,
too much protein can excessively overwork and eventually
wear out the liver and kidneys. BEAK APPÉTIT
foods fall within the acceptable levels for crude
fat and protein, as well as providing the necessary
levels of carbohydrates needed for a healthy parrot.
BEAK APPÉTIT foods have the proper combination
of grains and fruits needed in order to provide
a highly palatable nutritious maintenance diet for
Parrots in a breeding situation
must have their nutritional requirements met in
order to produce healthy hatchlings. Four to six
weeks prior to breeding season, parrots will seek
out foods that are protein and energy rich. BEAK
APPÉTIT will certainly meet this criteria.
Studies have shown that the most successful breeders
include cooked diets as an integral part of their
breeding program. I also recommend that breeding
parrots receive a calcium supplement in their diet
during breeding season. BEAK APPÉTIT will
provide breeding parrots with the protein, calcium,
and energy needed to produce healthy baby birds.
After hatching, baby parrots have
an enormous appetite which puts even further stress
on adult birds. Just imagine what it would be like
having to feed yourself and babies that are growing
at a rate of approximately 4% per day. Feeding BEAK
APPÉTIT during this time makes perfect sense.
BEAK APPÉTIT is an easy to eat, highly palatable
diet that provides essential vitamins and complete
proteins to meet the nutritional demands of growing
parrots. Furthermore BEAK APPÉTIT will prevent
the nutritional depletion that is systematic of
adult birds feeding babies.
During the weaning process, baby
parrots can be very reluctant to explore new foods.
Offering a nice warm serving of BEAK APPÉTIT
mixed with cooked vegetables is an exciting way
to encourage a baby parrot to eat a healthy diet
on it’s own. Store owners and customers alike
benefit tremendously, by saving time and money due
to ease and convenience of feeding BEAK APPÉTIT
to all of their birds.
In recent years there have been numerous
articles written by veterinarians as to the dangers
of a seed only diet. It has been proven time and again
that parrots on a seed only diet are experiencing
a slow death. A few complications that may result
from a seed only diet would include egg binding, egg
yolk peritonitis, excessive weight gain, fatty liver
infiltration, poor muscle tone and inferior feather
quality. Feeding seed in combination with cooked or
raw vegetables can help help to a degree, but will
not provide the much needed carbohydrates, protein
and minerals that BEAK APPÉTIT foods can. A
seed diet simply cannot provide parrots with the nutrition
they need to live a long and healthy life.
