Nutri-Berries are more interesting to my conure that your average pellet and healthier than seed mix and when you hide these around the cage not only do you give your bird something to do while you're away, you encourage its natural foraging behavior and its cage confidence. I'll usually hide one or two Nutri-Berries in its toys while away as a supplement to its pellet bowl.
The bag arrived well parceled and undamaged in transit, however 2/3 of the little nuggets were broken so the bag was 2/3 seeds and 1/3 little balls. The bird enjoyed the balls, but did nothing with with loose seed.
I have tried sooo many times over the past few months to give these to my green cheek... he has never once eaten the tiniest bit of one. He'll pick off a few pieces, might even keep a piece in his beak for a bit, but always tosses it aside. What makes me really suspicious is that he will normally eat as many safflower seeds as I let him, but he won't eat the ones he picks off these.
Not dismissing this casually--it can take a really long time for him (and most parrots) to go through with actually tasting something but at this point I think I've learned all the tricks to get him to truly give something a chance. He eats a huge variety of foods now compared to when I adopted him, but won't touch these despite happily eating most of the ingredients in them. They also smell kinda bad (not like his pellets smell tasty to me, but they at least have a pleasant sort of grain-like scent), so not sure if they're stale despite a best-by date of 12-2020.
I think these were recommended for so long because people were feeding their birds a seed-only diet and literally anything is better than that... but looking more closely at the ingredient list, I can't believe they have corn syrup... wtf? Sticking to my veggie/grain chop mix and a mix of harrison's and zupreem fruity for his pellets. I'd much rather buy fresh/frozen/freeze-dried fruit and regular seeds as treats... would definitely not recommend these as a bird's entire diet.
These are a little expensive but my male green cheek conure loves them. He’s tried several types of treats and can be a picky eater. I got him at the humane society and he tricked them into feeding him cheez-it’s every day. Now- He screams incessantly in the morning until I give him a few of his nutriberries in his “treat” dish. Apparently I’ll be a loyal customer for the next 30 years or so unless he tires of them. This is demanded in addition to his (and his lady bird’s, but she isn’t as picky) fresh fruits and veggies daily but always consumed first.
I purchased this item and had it on subscribe and save. At first, my Green-cheeked conure seemed to like them; although, he would only eat about half before discarding it. Eventually, he stopped eating them and chose to eat other food instead. I ended up with two bags of this product that I didn't use, still sealed by the manufacturer. What is upsetting to me is that I can see moth larvae webbing in both bags. We recently had an infestation of moths in our kitchen and had to throw lots of cereal and crackers away, and I can't help but wonder if the moths were brought in with the bird food. Needless to say, I won't be buying this again; although, I have heard that it is possible to kill the larvae either in the microwave or the freezer.
