Feeding of additional items

  • Harrison’s products should make up 75-80% by volume of your bird’s diet.

  • It is recommended that 5% by volume of the overall diet should be high quality, ideally organic, items which provide a rich source of omega-3s. Examples include chia seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds, or certain nuts. See this article for more information on the reasons for, and benefits of, including these items.
