    Good product, but packaging isn’t ideal

    Came on time. The seeds are the right size for my parrotlet, and I like that mix is formulated specifically for my bird’s species. The packaging could use some work. If you try to pour it, the seeds go everywhere since the resealing mechanism is inset from the sides a bit. So, you have to scoop it out of the bag. I would prefer that it is pourable, either with a more practical resealing mechanism or in a bottle. I transferred the seeds to an empty plastic orange juice jug.

    Perfect for Parrotlets!

    Our young parrotlet just LOVES this mix of seeds and dried fruit. I bought it after trying a number of other foods for “smaller birds” and it’s truly superior. This mix is a heartier blend than what you find for parakeets, but not as robust as for larger parrots and other birds. Just right for a parrotlet. I’ll definitely be buying more of this product!

I couldn’t find that in many places; this was one of the few.I can’t guarantee your parrotlet will love it, but definitely give it a try. 🙂

    Best for our parrotlet

    This is the favorite seed of our parrotlet. She loves it and really insists on this seed and nothing else. Of course, she likes her fresh treats, but this is her mainstay. I keep it in the freezer until I’m ready to use it to ensure freshness and deter any moth growth. I’ve never had any problems with it.

    I wasn’t sure if my fly baby was going to like the new food but he loves it. The food was fresh and he enjoys every bit of it. I got the package fast and I love how I saved money here than when I was going to my local bird store who was selling a different kind of food for half as much with a higher price. Thank you so much for the great food.

    My parrotlet loves his food! I love that is has a large variety of seeds, dried fruits and vegetables 🙂 I keep a small container of the seed under his cage in a sealed plastic container and store the remaining in the freezer to keep it fresh. I feed him 1 Tbsp a day along with a variety of other foods and this bag lasted us 6 months before ordering another.

    Best quality, but not perfect

    To begin, this is one of the only mixes available specifically for parrotlets. Parrotlets can be horribly picky, wasteful eaters, meaning this may be a rather expensive venture into husbandry for such a relatively small amount of feed [4 lb].Parrotlets are unique among hookbills as veterinary discussion and avicultural observation has found that it may be extremely harmful to feed pellets to color mutations of the popular Pacific parrotlet. It is necessary to feed this mix with fresh vegetables and fruit provided because the very small amount of dried vegetables in this mix is not enough for a parrot to be healthy. Often birds will reject fresh food in exchange for seed like that contained in this diet; we call them seed junkies. If your bird exhibits such behavior, it may be necessary to leave safe fruits or vegetables in the dish for several hours in the morning before they spoil and then give the animal this seed mix. It can prove necessary to do this daily for weeks or months until the bird becomes accustomed to and accepting of fresh foods, even if it does take a year for them to finally eat them in addition to this seed mix. An additional tip is to sprout some of these (undamaged, whole) seeds in a bag with moist paper towels after soaking overnight; if they germinate successfully it means the seed is fresh, and mold-free sprouts may be washed in cold water and fed safely to birds as an extremely healthy dietary supplement.The stated daily serving size on the package is one tablespoon for small birds or 1/8 of a cup for small parrots, which I support. Parrotlets eat seed by husking it and most often discard the husks in the dish, in the process covering uneaten food. By placing a small amount in the bowl less is lost among the husks and less food is also wasted if the parrotlet is a picky eater. It will also stop birds from becoming overweight, which poses a risk to organ health if they consume too much seed or eat only the seeds in this diet with the highest fat content.Instructions on the package recommend refrigeration after opening in order to preserve the diet.I would not add any additional high fat foods to this diet, such as sunflower seeds. The ingredient list as provided on the package is as follows:Safflower seed, white proso millet, buckwheat, cracked corn, paddy rice, oat groats, canary grass seed, sunflower chips, black oil sunflower, peanuts, orange oat groats (FD&C Orange #6), hemp seed, kibbled corn, cantaloupe seed, carrot dices, dehydrated green peas, red bell pepper dices, peppers, spinach flakes, soybean oil, orange oil (used as a preservative).The product has a few drawbacks, such as no indication of where the ingredients originate or whether the ingredients were farmed organically and responsibly. The product, like fresh foods, should be organic as it is extra healthful for the body systems of birds. It would be beneficial to reduce the size of the peanuts and further reduce the cracked corn as most parrotlets are unwilling to break these foods into smaller pieces and oftentimes are unable to do so.

    I love that I can buy a mix specifically for my parrotlet. There is some seeds he does not seem to like and I wish it had a few more hot peppers since he loves those. It has dried fruits and veggies, overall you cant go wrong with this mix.

    Better than most stuff in the pet store

    Overall, this is great food. We used to get Kaytee Chunky, which my 8-month old parrotlet liked, but they stopped making it. We tried about four seed mixes that are in the pet stores and he didn’t really like them, so I tried The Volkman Parrotlet food. I’m pretty sure this is his favorite – I think he likes it even better than Kaytee Chunky. My parrotlet loves the safflower seeds – he used to pick through the old mix until those were all gone. I wish there were a few more sunflower seeds; he loves those too, so I supplement with extra sunflower seeds. The dried peas and yellow pellet things are both too hard for him to bite into, so those always end up on the floor of his cage. The dried fruit/veggies are also a bit hard, I usually break them up into tiny pieces so that he can at least attempt to eat them. Since I also give him fresh fruits and veggies daily, I’m not worried if he doesn’t eat the dry ones. He definitely likes this food better than any that are in the pet store now, and I highly recommend it. The only reason it doesn’t get a “five-star” is because the dried foods are so hard, and I have to add sunflower seeds.

    Parrotlets will love it, just hope this is the recipe Volkman intended.

    My parrotlet loves this brand a lot, he doesn’t eat everything but parrotlets can be picky eaters.Why only 3 stars? Because not all ingredients inside the bag are included in the product description, on the bag nor on the Amazon site. While I haven’t found anything which is harmful, it’s just a little disconcerting feeding my pet something when the manufacturer either doesn’t know everything in their recipe or it’s negligence led them to missing some items.Update: Previously I gave this product 3 stars but it honestly doesn’t deserve that low of a rating. My parrotlets love it and even the budgie will come over and steal their food. Haven’t found anything better, so since it’s the best of the best (to my birds) I have to change my rating to 5 stars for them.

    my bird loves this food

    My pet store “guy”, who knows his stuff, said to start my young parrotlet on parakeet seed & then move him over to cockatiel mix, which he supplied me with. I thought the seeds in it were really geared to a bigger bird diet than my little parrotlet, so I purchased this blend. He LOVES it, and is eagerly eating his seeds now (he was relying more on the extras I give him). He especially loves the safflower seeds, and even eats the dried greens in the mix, not something I’ve found my other birds (parakeets) to do in other blends.

    good seed blend

    We feed our two parrotlets the Volkman mixed with a pellet. It’s not a great idea to feed your parrotlets (or any bird, really) a 100% seed diet, but I know from experience that some smaller birds are SUPER PICKY and will NOT eat pellets. So if you are having to supplement your bird’s diet with some seed, this is a good one to do that with. We often mix it with Goldenfeast blends and the parrotlets *love* it.

    My Parrotlets LOVE it

    The quality is outstanding and the variety of seed is wonderful. I’ve tried numerous different brands for my parrotlets over 8 yrs and this one is, hands down, the best. They eat all the seeds except the few big peppers in the bag.

    Perfect for Green Cheek Conure

    My Green Cheek Conure obviously prefers this mixture, as she does not throw out hardly anything that she does not want.

    I think this is a very good parrolet food but I wish it were without sunflower seeds. The vet at NC state school said that too high fat and protein are not good for a parrot. She could seed some black scalloping underneath my p’lets tail. I never knew that before.

    Know what you’re buying.

    Didn’t know this food contains sunflower seeds.. Not sure if people know that sunflower seeds are fatning to birds.. That’s my only complaint about this food..

    My bird loves it

    This is the first time I have fed her food especially designed for parottolets. I was surprised at the ingredients when I opened it up. WOW! It’s expensive but she eats most of it and I’m sure with the veggies I give her, she is getting a balanced diet.

    Fantastic Mix for Parrotlets!

    Fantastic product! My parrot love love loves this mix! The seeds are diverse so I don’t feel much need to supplement his diet by buying two different seed bags. Instead I can focus on giving him veggies and fruits instead!

    Picky eater loves this seed!

    My parrotlet is a very picky eater. He won’t eat most of the fresh fruits that I’ve seen other parrotlets go nuts over. I had been feeding him some expensive pellets recommended from the breeder I got him from, but he didn’t eat much of it and would rather eat treats instead. I was worried he wasn’t getting the nutrition he needs. I couldn’t find any bird food specialized for parrotlets in stores, but I’m so glad I found this food. He goes crazy over this food when he eats and lets out many very happy chirps when I feed him. I’ve been feeding him this food for awhile and he looks very vibrant and healthy. I’ll be keeping him on this brand for now on.

    Pretty Wastful blend

    I have one parrottlet and he just eats the seeds but leaves the white kernals. I blend it with a small bird pellet and seed mixture now cause he was doing poorly on this diet and just eating the australian blend of fruits and nuts. He is with two finch brothers in a big cage. I started giving him half this mixture with half premium parakeet mixture and he comes right down and busily inspects his cups. He wasnt moulting he just wasnt getting the nutrition he needed from this particular blend. He was raised on cockatiel food from breeder. I did slowly transition to this but it hasnt worked well.

    This is my birds absolute favorite.

    I mix this with smaller seeds since I have a parrotlet but she loves the bigger pieces and works on them keeping her entertained and happy. She is gaining the right amount of weight. Might suggest mixing with smaller seed incase your bird doesn’t like the bigger pieces.

    Really good stuff!

    My two parrotlets love this food! It is very fresh, well packaged, and has really good ingredients. It is virtually impossible to find food for parrotlets in pet stores. Most don’t even know what a “Parrotlet” is.

    Good mixture for tiny little parrots

    So far, this is the only product out there strictly for Parrotlets. Our little guy eats a varied diet. He’ll eat just about anything that we’re eating. He’s not a seed ‘junky’, but he really likes this mixture. It’s a good supplement for him.

    Great price and size

    There are very few foods that are catered specifically for Parrotlets, so I was skeptical when I got this. But it is good stuff! The size of the pieces are finally manageable and not wasted. Our parrotlet loves this food.

    as described – birds love it.

    as described – birds love it… test tho for freshnesh by soaking a few seeds in water (90% should germinate) if its far less its lower quality in terms of “Freshness” These were at around 70%

    My parrotlet loves this food along side his veggies.. the bag was bigger than I expected so that’s definitely a plus, better quality than the small bags I’ve gotten before. 👍

    To begin, this is one of the only mixes available specifically for parrotlets. Parrotlets can be horribly picky, wasteful eaters, meaning this may be a rather expensive venture into husbandry for such a relatively small amount of feed [4 lb].Parrotlets are unique among hookbills as veterinary discussion and avicultural observation has found that it may be extremely harmful to feed pellets to color mutations of the popular Pacific parrotlet. It is necessary to feed this mix with fresh vegetables and fruit provided because the very small amount of dried vegetables in this mix is not enough for a parrot to be healthy. Often birds will reject fresh food in exchange for seed like that contained in this diet; we call them seed junkies. If your bird exhibits such behavior, it may be necessary to leave safe fruits or vegetables in the dish for several hours in the morning before they spoil and then give the animal this seed mix. It can prove necessary to do this daily for weeks or months until the bird becomes accustomed to and accepting of fresh foods, even if it does take a year for them to finally eat them in addition to this seed mix. An additional tip is to sprout some of these (undamaged, whole) seeds in a bag with moist paper towels after soaking overnight; if they germinate successfully it means the seed is fresh, and mold-free sprouts may be washed in cold water and fed safely to birds as an extremely healthy dietary supplement.The stated daily serving size on the package is one tablespoon for small birds or 1/8 of a cup for small parrots, which I support. Parrotlets eat seed by husking it and most often discard the husks in the dish, in the process covering uneaten food. By placing a small amount in the bowl less is lost among the husks and less food is also wasted if the parrotlet is a picky eater. It will also stop birds from becoming overweight, which poses a risk to organ health if they consume too much seed or eat only the seeds in this diet with the highest fat content.Instructions on the package recommend refrigeration after opening in order to preserve the diet.I would not add any additional high fat foods to this diet, such as sunflower seeds. The ingredient list as provided on the package is as follows:Safflower seed, white proso millet, buckwheat, cracked corn, paddy rice, oat groats, canary grass seed, sunflower chips, black oil sunflower, peanuts, orange oat groats (FD&C Orange #6), hemp seed, kibbled corn, cantaloupe seed, carrot dices, dehydrated green peas, red bell pepper dices, peppers, spinach flakes, soybean oil, orange oil (used as a preservative).The product has a few drawbacks, such as no indication of where the ingredients originate or whether the ingredients were farmed organically and responsibly. The product, like fresh foods, should be organic as it is extra healthful for the body systems of birds. It would be beneficial to reduce the size of the peanuts and further reduce the cracked corn as most parrotlets are unwilling to break these foods into smaller pieces and oftentimes are unable to do so.

    My parrotlet is picky about other seeds but he loves this – every bag I have ever bought has been fresh and high quality. I love that this is formulate FOR PARROTLETS – that’s hard to find! I mix it with his pellets.

    I took over my parrotlet from a friend who could no longer care for him. He had lots of feathers missing and looked kind of rough. She said he only eats sunflower seeds. Sure enough for the first few days he would only eat sunflower seeds and touch nothing else. We suspected he must be missing nutrients which he needed for his feathers to grow. Then I came across this food and it was a game changer. There are so many different seeds in there and while my little boy doesn’t eat all of them, he eats a whole lot more than sunflower seeds now. Funny, he now avoids the sunflower seeds which are also part of this mix, I guess there is much better stuff in there. His feathers look so much better now after about 3 weeks with this food. I already bought the next bag.

    Good seed mix for Parrotlets in combination with their veggies and some fruits, pasta, beans. I also get flax and chia seeds and some others in bulk to add to their diet. My first Parrotlet was a rescue and he came with this as his feed. I have bought this food several times now and will continue to do so for my three Parrotlets.
