To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I'd never buy anything from Petco again...I can't trust their bird food products as much as I love Lafaber's whose quality is consistently good, but buying a huge container and getting it smelling stale like the product had sat way over its fresh date, and I couldn't trust it to be nutritious for my Grey. I didn't spend a lot of money and raise this parrot for him to eat garbage products. I will find another dealer or go to Petsmart who've never sold me anything bad smelling. Toss this stuff its not worth seeing if Andy gets sick or if its just the odor.
My African Grey loves these. I "layer" his feed bowl with 5 or 6 Nutri-Berries, then a covering layer of Volkman's specialized mix for African Greys and Amazons, then 5 or 6 berries and a final layer of Volkman's. He inevitably goes after the Nutri-Berries first. After a couple of years of experimenting with his diet, I found this to provide him with the best quality nutrition with respect to his seed base - and of course he gets veggies and fruits in addition.
I tried the smaller bird sized Nutri-Berries on my conure, but she just didn't care for them and kept pitching them out of her bowl - even after over two months of attempting to entice her. To avoid potential waste, I recommend purchasing the smallest package you can find if you're trying these for the first time as some birds go crazy over them and some wouldn't eat them at gunpoint. :-)
This company is owned by a veterinarian that specializes in parrots. No wonder my parrot loves this food. Plus it has all the proper vitamins and minerals my kind of bird needs to stay healthy and happy. I signed up with “Lafeber Pet Birds” also and now I get emails with wonderful articles about parrots and other kinds of pet birds. Lots of great information that has helped me better take care of and understand my beautiful parrot whom I love dearly. Thanks!
