Eclectus Parrots are Frugivorous (fruit eating) tropical parrots. Their natural diet consists mainly of fresh native fruits and their kernals. Paradise Pellets have been formulated to replicate the natural diet of these birds with fresh Australian grown fruit, low iron levels and a high level of vitamin A, to ensure a nutritionally balanced and complete diet.
Available Product Sizes:
Paradise Pellets were formulated by avian veterinarians as a species specific formula to suit the low iron dietary requirements of Eclectus Parrots and other frugivorous birds. The basis of any diet for birds should come from the most reliable source - nature.
This inspiration was used to create this completley balanced diet based on fresh fruit and select low iron grains from Australian farms.
These pellets are extruded to unlock natural flavours, improve digestibility and ensure food safety.

Paradise Pellets have been developed to provide complete nutritional balance for growth, breeding, brain function and optimum feather development when fed as 50% of your Frugivores total diet.
The remaining 50% should consist of majority fresh fruit and vegetables (45%) and small portion of treat foods such as select nuts and seeds (5%).
Vetafarm Delistix can also be added into this 5% as a healthy balanced treat and behavioural enrichment tool. Foods high in iron should be avoided when feeding Frugivores with a low iron tolerance.
