I´m Franz, the founder of the brand "Your Parrot". Birds have been my passion since childhood. It started with budgies and other Australians.
Who is behind all this?
Once Upon a time...
Birdfood at it´s finest! Passion & experience are just some of the ingredients of our products. We are a Start-Up with the aim of revolutionize birdfood.
the beginning of a
Driven by curiosity and the love of animals, I decided in 2005 to breed exotic birds professionally. Starting with the world-famous budgerigars and parrot species that were rarely kept at that time.
A few years later, after traveling the continent of Australia for months observing parrots & parakeets and studying their diet, I realized one thing. The countless mixtures of fatty seeds that we feed, do not really match the original composition of the diet of many parrots.
Dry seed mixes alone are not a solution. In order to provide birds with the best possible care, a wide range of vitamins and minerals are required, which must be added on a daily basis. Since hardly anyone knows this and it's not exactly easy to supplement the range of vitamins, minerals & amino acids in the exact amount, I had to do something...
Our collaboration with the most experienced breeders & researchers around the world has made it possible to produce a complete feed that is ideal for parrots and parakeets, because the aviculturist saw the benefits too. Our extruded pellets are made in Europe and we source more than 60% of our ingredients locally.
There was only one more step to take... a taste test of our and many other parrots. The first bowl (and every other bowl since then) was happily eaten. Best of all, the shiny feathers are stunning & the foraging pellets show balanced parrots. A practical side effect for the owner: 100% feed conversion with no leftovers.
