Sunseed's Vita Plus Cockatiel Formula with Quiko Egg Food and Spirulina is designed to meet the high energy and protein needs of the pet Cockatiel and is also ideal for Lovebirds. The addition of nutrient rich fortified Vita Bite Pellets adds vitamins and minerals not normally found in a straight seed diet, promoting colorful feather growth and ensuring the overall health and well being of your pet bird. Eggs contain powerful antioxidants and are an excellent source of protein. Spirulina, also an antioxidant, helps support the immune system. With tropical fruits, apples and vegetables rich in Vitamin A, this colorful diet is attractive to all Cockatiels and is fortified with added calcium necessary for all life stages.
Generally Small Hookbills are fed a wide variety of foods, with a seed mix or pelleted food serving as the foundation for the complete diet. Cockatiel mixes are usually the foundation of the diet for any of these small hookbills. A Cockatiel seed mix is usually a millet based mixture of seeds that also has sunflower seeds, safflower seeds, buckwheat, oats, and cracked corn. Often, more exotic blends also contain dehydrated fruits and vegetables. Seed diets can be deficient in vitamins K and D, so the addition of green and yellow vegetables and fruit is essential. Use of an avian daily multivitamin is recommended. These are usually water soluble and can be added to the drinking water or sprinkled over the food. If the vitamin is added to the water, the water container must be thoroughly washed each day.
Almost anything that you eat can be offered in small quantities. (No chocolate, alcohol, avocado, and very little highly acidic foods like citrus and tomato.) A variety diet makes for a much happier, healthier bird.
Fresh water should always be available.
