Wild macaws aren’t given a handout of bird food like most companion macaws. So what do macaws eat? In the wild, most macaws eat a variety of seeds, plant material. fruits, and nuts. The wild macaw’s diet tends to be high in fat, which is acceptable for a bird that spends its day flying through the rainforest, finding food, nesting, and rearing chicks.
Companion macaws are lucky to have a much easier life than their wild counterparts, but they miss out on the ability to forage for their food, a behavior that comes naturally. Lafeber’s bird foods are ideal for the lively macaw, a bird that appreciates the opportunity to tear apart its meals.
Macaws are a force to be reckoned with. Everything about them is big, from their voices to their attitudes. Even the mini macaws are big…on the inside! Colorful and often raucous, they call attention to themselves even when quiet. Although, to the uninitiated, macaws seem formidable and may bluster and carry on, those who share their lives with these magnificent friends know that they contain surprisingly soft and loving hearts and sensitive natures. Macaw people adore their great friends to the very core of their being…and for good reason. It only takes one gentle kiss from their giant beaks to open the stoniest of hearts. Macaws are “magic” all the way.
The food that doesn't underestimate your
bird's good taste...or intelligence.
Nobody knows your bird's diet better than Lafeber. Nobody, that is, except your bird. Contrary to what many believe, birds don't eat with just their beaks. They eat with their brains, too. In the wild, a bird will hunt for all kinds of food. Flavorful foods, colorful foods, foods that are fun, even playful to eat. And, intuitively, they get the foods they need.
And at home? They fuss, they pick and get more food on the floor than in their beaks. Consequently, they not only miss out on the joy of eating - they miss out on nutrition too.
Minimum waste. Maximum nutrition. Nutri-Berries are different. They're made with savory peanuts, hulled canary seed, cracked corn and other tempting ingredients. They're colorful, richly textured and invitingly shaped. It's a difference your bird can see, taste and touch.
It's a difference you'll notice, too. Your bird will thrive on the stimulation and beak exercise it provides. In fact, 96% of the berry gets eaten. Which means it's not just smart nutrition, it's a smart buy, too.
