Parakeet Nutri-Berries

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 3 customer ratings

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.

The Lafeber difference is in the hulling. Even if a seed mix is coated with vitamin 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.

Classic Nutri-Berries are nutritionally balanced like pellets, just not ground up. Like pellets, Nutri-Berries contain seeds and grains. In pellets, however, they are ground into a fine powder and then formed into a pellet. Most of the seeds and grains in Nutri-Berries are kept whole because Dr. Lafeber discovered how to nutritionally balance them without grinding. We naturally preserve our foods and like all our foods, Parakeet Nutri-Berries are free of artificial colors, so you can feel good about offering them to your bird, either as a complete meal or as a healthy treat.

  • Exceptional high rate of birds’ acceptability compared to regular pellets
  • Omega 3 & 6 fatty acid balanced
  • Naturally preserved & flavored
  • Non-GMO formula
  • Made in the USA on the Lafeber Family Farm
  • Can be offered as a complete diet or as a healthy treat

    I recently got two parakeets from our local animal rescue and started to give them Dr. Harvey’s all natural seed mix. They loved it, but I always felt like I was throwing away a LOT of seeds….which meant a lot of money. Some of it, I’m sure, was the empty hulls, but there were also a lot of seeds the birds just didn’t eat. I tried to introduce LaFeber pellets to them, but they wanted NOTHING to do with them. On a whim, I tried the Nutri-Berries one day and the birds went nuts for them! I put six in their feeding dish in the morning along with some pellets. Whenever I see their feeding dish empty, I’ll add two-four berries throughout the day. I’ve found if I give my birds too many pellets, they become toys that the birds put in their water dish. I recently ordered some of the other LaFeber Berry products to give my keets a bit of variety.

    I have not tried this product yet, strangely, but I have heard SO many good things about it that I plan to buy it today! I have seven fiesty parakeets who love vegetables and fruits, but it takes a while for them to get used to them. They are on an all-seed main diet, so hopefully adding these will give them some variety! Thank you for endorsing such great products,

    I had a parakeet who lived a full, quality life with me for 16 years, on nutriberries. He passed away this year at the age of 18 at least, as a friend had him for two years before giving him to me. I’ve raised 3 parrotlets on nutriberries and everyone compliments me on how good they look. I will always feed any bird I own Lafeber bird foods.
