zupreem natural for my grey
Posted 13 March 2012 - 02:10 PM
4 months old, but i managed to get him into a pellet diet with a bit of fresh fruits and veggies
whenever he's in the mood for them. i used to feed him animalzone/petline pellets. a new
"real" pet shop opened up here recently and i was able to acquire zupreem natural pellets
for the first time. at first, he didn't seem to touch them but slowly started to eat some and is
now really into them and would eat them whenever.
i haven't been able to get any other pellets for a while (hard to come by in my country) so i
was wondering if i should just stick to zupreem, since i heard it's basically the best brand
around. should i just keep feeding him that, along with his weekly seed mix and fruits/veggies?

Have you tried feeding 2 parts healthy grains to 1 part healthy legumes, either cooked or sprouted to Klaus? This can help to supplement the protein in his diet and it's healthy. What about sprouted seeds? If he's picky about eating fresh foods, it may help to increase his appetite by feeding a small amount of sprouted seeds. Do you have red palm oil available to you, by chance?

so that i'm sure he's actually eating and not just wasting food. haven't tried sprouted seeds with any birds
yet and i've known about how good they are for a long time. just can't find any good ones and i don't have
time to sprout any seeds myself.

I am quite surprised to read you can buy Animalzone pellets in your Country. I live in Namibia and this brand is very common here being manufactered in South Africa which is next door. I have the same problem where I live. I cannot find top of the range pellets. Most of the time I use Nutribird P15 from Versele Laga and I prefer it to Animalzone which crumbles in a powder very fast.

Sorry for the messy cut and pastes, just don't have to time to clean it up LOL. Was interested in your post and curious about the differences in a food I had not hear of before. I use Zupreem fruit flavor...I would probably prefer some of their newer blends however my birds don't like bland and do just fine. Color is a big issue around here...each either loves a particular color or wont touch it LOL. I've tried the "plain" Zupreem and it doesn't fly...not sure why, well I guess I do know for my flock, color, smell, flavor. If you go to the Zupreem site, you will see that the nutritional analysis is nearly identical for all "flavors". As a side not, I do not feed an exclusive pellet diet. Lots of fresh veggies, fruit, cooked beans, pasta and large nuts are a staple along with the Zupreem. We have large parrots btw, M2, B&G, Goffin, and soon arriving CAG. Some will have issues with us feeding large nuts...I disagree in advance LOL, these guys need their protein AND the effort vs reward at getting to their "prize" is great for them.
Oops, sorry...didn't realize site listed grams and the other percentages. I will do what I can later today to convert them for you.
