Parakeets

Haith's recognise that Domesticated Parakeets may have their own small differences in dietary preferences due to the differences in their origin and size, but in general their nutritional requirements are all very similar.

Haith's Parakeet Mix has been developed in association with long-established parakeet breeders to satisfy the demands of this group that can be very active in their preferred aviary conditions. Consisting of Yellow and Pearl White Millets along with Canadian Canary, Sunflower and Oats products it is lower in fats but higher in carbohydrates than Haith's Cockatiel Mix.

Parakeets also enjoy Millet Sprays and when suspended from the roof of the aviary will provide hours of interest and foraging activity particularly for the smaller species like the Australian Parakeets. Greenfood and fruit such as apple are also taken by some species but should always be fresh and removed at the slightest sign of deterioration. An occasional supplement of Haith's Parrot-Like Tonic Seed can also be beneficial, providing vitamins and minerals, which may be lacking in other mixes. In a breeding situation, Haith's Condition and Rearing Food should be fed from just before the breeding season and until the young are fully fledged. Egg Biscuit Food or Nectarblend along with Prosecto Insectivorous Mix should also be available throughout the breeding season.

Always offer Fine Oystershell Grit, and Granulated Charcoal to aid the digestive process and Small Cuttlefish Bone to supply essential calcium. Other minerals may be made available from Haith's Mineralised Tonic Grit.
