What are ZuPreem pellets?

Pellets are a formulated diet made specifically for the needs of each bird species. They contain a mixture of seeds, grains, fruits and vegetables. Pellets also include all the necessary levels of vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats, amino acids and other nutrients that your bird needs to stay healthy. Pellets are also lower in fat than seeds, so they are better for your bird's liver and cardiovascular system, which your bird needs to stay healthy.

Why are pellets from ZuPreem the best for your bird?

Pellets are much healthier than seeds or homemade diets for birds because they provide complete daily nutrition in manageable portions. If your bird eats the portion size of pellets recommended for its species every day, with pellets from Zupreem you can be sure that it is getting all the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and well.

Although you can offer small birds fresh vegetables and fruits to your bird to provide variety and taste, together with a diet built on seeds, it will not always be as complete and balanced nutrition as pellets.

The pellets are formulated based on the results of scientific studies that determine the nutritional requirements of birds; thus they take the guesswork out of feeding and seeds also make your bird's diet very fat and it is not something birds in captivity can burn in the same way as in nature.

Why do they come in different shapes and sizes?

Like humans, birds have preferences in the shape and size of food. Typically, smaller birds prefer smaller sized pellets, while larger birds prefer larger pellets. However, there are some small birds that like large pellets and some large birds that like small pellets. Birds often have shape preferences in pellets, with some preferring round, spherical pellets and others preferring longer, flatter shaped pellets. Offering birds a variety of different shaped pellets allows them to make a choice so they can choose what they like best.
Watch this video about " Let the bird choose " where Dr. Laurie Hess, DVM, Diplomate ABVP (Avian Practice) talks about how to get your bird to eat pellets by letting it choose for itself.


What makes a good diet for birds?

Ideally, every bird should have a pelleted diet. Pellets are a nutritionally complete food specially formulated for birds and should make up at least 60% of your bird's daily feed.

The other part of your bird's diet can come from food such as fruits and vegetables. 

Good fruits and vegetables for feeding include orange, yellow and red fruits that are a source of vitamins A. These include melon, sweet potato, papaya, red and yellow pepper, carrots, mango, etc. Remember that these foods should be fed in small portions.

Is seed best for my bird?

In nature, our birds would eat seeds, fruit & vegetables, so seeds are a large part of your bird's natural food and therefore as a species they can easily live on seeds, but when we remove them from their natural environment, we also remove their natural the possibility of exercise, which comes through flying, which is something that most private individuals cannot offer them to the same extent as they would have in nature, it is not impossible, but difficult. In nature, birds can easily fly 5-20 km a day to get food - they don't fly 10 km one way and back home, but they will have a very large area and need to fly further before they find food.

And the lack of exercise is one of the big factors why seed may not be right for your bird - even with a really good cream mixture like the ones we sell here. Your bird will often get a lot of calories that it will not be able to use and this is where Pellets such as those from Zupreem come in, they are filled with the vitamins, minerals and your bird needs to stay healthy, but they have fewer calories, which means they don't need quite the same exercise as in nature - not saying they shouldn't have exercise, we strongly recommend that your bird gets out and flies, and preferably several times.

So since seeds are mostly high in fat and lack the essential nutrients that birds need, it's a bit like eating junk food at every meal.

Although we may be able to maintain a normal weight, the chances that we would become overweight with all the fat are much higher and we certainly wouldn't be very healthy over time.

Getting your bird to eat pellets can be challenging and may take some time. Don't give up though!
Converting your bird from seed to pellets is not always an easy task. But switching to a pelleted food is worth the effort for your bird's health and well-being. Most avian veterinarians with experience in birds recommend a pellet based diet to keep your bird healthy, encourage a strong immune system and promote overall good health.
