Happy Birthday to the food that started it all! In the early 1970s, Dr. Lafeber began experimenting with a pelleted food for birds. Initially, he made the pellets on a small mill in the rear of his animal hospital. Fifty years later, we’re proud to say that we offer a full line of Premium Daily Pellets and so much more for our feathered friends. Learn more about how we got started 50 years ago and how you can take part in the celebration!
Parakeets are living longer lives as more people realize that these small birds cannot thrive on seed alone. Seeds are high in fat and lack the essential vitamins and minerals for a long, healthy life. Even seed mixes that are coated with vitamins and minerals fall short on complete nutrition, because once the bird cracks and hulls the seed these benefits are lost.
We created our Premium Daily Pellets to make feeding your parakeet a nutritionally complete diet easy and convenient. Lafeber’s Premium Daily Pellets for Parakeets are a high-quality blend of natural ingredients like ground non-GMO corn and soybean meal. Each pellet contains all the nutrients your parakeet needs for a full, energetic, and healthy life.
Our pellets are flavored with molasses, which enhances taste naturally and improves the acceptance of pellets when finicky “seed junkies” are converted to a healthy diet. They are sized for your parakeet to crumble up and can be offered as a full meal or as an important part of your bird’s diet. Many parakeet owners have found that their birds love a combination of foods along with their pellets, such as Nutri-Berries, Avi-Cakes, and various fruits and vegetables.
Our grains are literally grown outside Lafeber Company’s front door. We also include whole egg, one of the most digestible forms of protein, and essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids are added to the mixed grains. Lafeber’s Premium Daily Pellets are Omega 3 & 6 fatty acid balanced to give your bird a stronger immune system, stronger bones, and healthier feathers. We also naturally flavor and naturally preserve our foods, and each batch of pellets is scientifically tested for quality at an independent laboratory so you can feel good about feeding Lafeber foods to your feathered companion.

My parakeets love these. They eat up or nibble down all the pellets they can those little fatties.
i personally love these pellets, they are a great size for budgies as some pellets tend to be a little big for them and you can get a lot of product for your money compared to some of the other brands.the nutritional value is also pretty impressive if you look at the more detailed Analysis as there is only some of it on the container. its also great that is was produced by a vet who knows about nutrition. hopefully there will be variations with different flavors and such in the future so there will be more of a variety to choose from. its definitely a good staple along with a few seeds
