Product Description

Lafeber Premium Daily Diet Pellets - Parrot - 25  Lb Box

Parrots like Amazons and African greys might have good appetites, but that doesn’t mean they always make the right food choices. They might very well choose seed and other high-fat, low-nutrient food over healthier selections. We created Lafeber’s Premium Daily Diet to ensure your bird gets all the nutrients he needs for a full, energetic and healthy life, with a taste he’ll find too good to pass up. 

Bird food for parrots has traditionally been a boring affair, so we decided to change that. Wild parrots are never bored. Most of their day is filled with activity, including foraging for food. So why should your parrot be bored with his daily meals? We have designed Lafeber food to be both nutritious and fun for the entire avian family. The shape and texture of all of our bird foods is intended to appeal to a bird’s natural instincts and sense of curiosity. We offer a wide variety of food and snacks – try a little of everything in one of our Best Seller Assortment packs to see what food your bird likes the best.

It is not a coincidence that many cultures have considered parrots to be the “messengers of the gods.”  Regardless of species, parrots possess a magical quality to capture the imagination and the heart that transcends all cultures.  Whether we keep rowdy Amazons, intellectual greys, the elegant eclectus, or any other of the many parrot species, the common denominator is that they all possess innumerable loveable, endearing and wonderful characteristics that transform those willing to open their hearts and their homes to one of these wonderful beings.  They change our lives…they change us…all for the better.  How lucky we are to share our lives with them!

Nutritionally Balanced

Good health and a long life begin with proper nutrition and Lafeber's Premium Daily Diet is formulated to provide exactly that.

Lafeber's Premium Daily Diet is a high quality blend of natural ingredients like ground non-GMO corn and soybean meal. Both grains are literally grown outside Lafeber Company's front door. We also add whole egg, the world's most digestive form of protein.

The different grains are mixed and essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids are added which are necessary for strong bones and brilliant feathers. Watch your feathered friend shine with the excellent nutrition found in Lafeber's pelleted bird food.

Omega 3 & 6 Balance

Balancing the Omega Fatty Acids increases immune function. Generally, increased immune function helps the body's ability to fight disease.

Balanced Omega 3 & 6's also improves the quality of the skin. More than ever, each pelleted recipe provides excellent nutrition for your loved feathered companion. Creating the first Omega 3 & 6 balanced pet bird pellet is just one of the reasons Lafeber Company is considered the leader in avian nutrition.

Naturally Preserved

Our veterinarians and nutritionist determined the best combination of natural preservatives, specifically mixed tocopherols and citric acid, to protect the nutrients of Lafeber's Premium Daily Diet pellets.

Naturally Flavored

Lafeber pellets are naturally flavored with the great taste of molasses. Molasses provides the energy birds need and a taste birds enjoy.

High quality is guaranteed by controlling each step of the manufacturing process.

Lafeber Company makes only bird food so our processes and equipment are specifically designed for your birds. We make small batches of food to tightly control our quality. Unlike many other bird food companies, we mix, form and package our food all under one roof. Each batch of pellets is scientifically tested for quality at an independent laboratory. These are some of the reasons why Lafeber Company guarantees your bird the highest quality food.

Lafeber's pellets are the only real pelleted food found in pet stores. Most of the other “pellets” are actually extruded diets. Lafeber prefers to pellet because a higher quality product is achieved. Pelleting is a gentler food process as compared to extrusion. Pellets reach a temperature of around 165 degrees when formed and are then cooled. Because extrusion generally requires 100% gelatinization of the starches (the starches melt), the food is generally heated to 250-275 degrees under high pressure 300-600 psig when formed, and then must be cooked for approximately 20 minutes. Because of the extrusion processing, extruded foods generally need to be supplemented an extra 20-30% due to a nutrient loss as compared to only a 10% loss during pelleting.

Since our pellets offer nutrition in every bite, pellets can be a full diet or an important part of your bird's diet. Many owners have found their birds love a combination of foods with their pellets such as Nutri-Berries, Avi-Cakes and various fruits and vegetables.

 

Dr. Lafeber Sr. created the very first pet bird pellet. As a practicing veterinarian in the 1960's Dr Ted Lafeber Sr. was treating pet birds and soon realized that most pet birds were suffering from malnutrition. Birds can not survive on millet, canary seed and sunflower seeds alone.

In 1975, he created the very first pet bird pellet recipe. Initially, many people thought he was crazy, birds eat seeds, not pellets, but then they saw the results… the birds eating pellets were healthier, happier and living longer.

Lafeber Company was built by a father-son team of veterinarians with a shared love of animals and a special passion for birds. Dr. T.J. Lafeber developed the very first commercial bird food pellet in the back room of his veterinary clinic in the early 1970s. Today, our recipes are developed by his son, Dr. Ted Lafeber, III, along with top veterinarians and nutritionists.

Lafeber Company’s manufacturing facility has always been located on the Lafeber family farmland, and all of our products are mixed, formed and packaged under one roof. Staying true to our motto —“Caring and working for the health of animals” — we created Veterinary Resources to offer exotic animal veterinarians an every-growing library of vet-written articles, client education materials and videos. Wildlife Conservation is our online networking community dedicated to nourishing and protecting animals and their worlds near and far. Pet Birds is dedicated to the pet owner and offers a wide variety of information on their beloved pets.Each pellet is a high-quality blend of natural ingredients like ground non-GMO corn and soybean meal. Our grains are literally grown outside Lafeber Company’s front door. We also include whole egg, the most digestive form of protein, and essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids are added to the mixed grains. Lafeber’s Premium Daily Diet is 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.

Lafeber Company is one of the few food companies that produce all of their own food. All Lafeber products are proudly manufactured on Dr. Lafeber’s great grandfather’s farm in Cornell, Illinois. Carefully watching our food production from beginning to end allows us to produce the highest quality pet food available.hest quality pet food available.
