What are extruded pellets?

Our ingredients consisting of nuts, seeds, fruits and vegetables are crushed and mixed. The crushed components are mixed using steam, heat and pressure and then pressed into various shapes. In this process, all germs, traces of fungus, toxins and microorganisms that can occur in conventional seeds mixtures are destroyed.

In addition, the individual food components are now fully "open" and much better digestible by your parrots. Our extruded pellets contain all the vitamins, amino acids & minerals a bird needs to stay healthy on a daily basis. Conventional seeds do not offer this, so the bird is undersupplied in the long run.

Ingredients of our extruded pellets and their meaning 

Seeds of a milk thistle with flowers (Silybum marianum, Scotch Thistle, Marian thistle ) C

Milk Thistle Seeds

The silymarin contained in the seeds is responsible for the liver-protective effect of milk thistle. A mixture of three flavonoids. Due to malnutrition in parakeet and parrot husbandry, the consequences are often fatty liver. Silymed can have a regenerating effect here.

Blueberries

The health benefits of blueberries are truly extraordinary. They contain minerals that parrots need, such as potassium, manganese, copper, iron and zinc. Few fruits have higher levels of antioxidants. Research studies suggest that the chlorogenic acid in these berries helps lower blood sugar levels. Yes, parrots can also suffer from type II diabetes.

Beetroot

Beetroot is one of the vegetables richest in vitamins and minerals. The vitamins of the B group, niacin, folic acid and vitamin C are included in noteworthy vitamins. In addition to sodium, iron, magnesium and phosphorus, beetroot has a high calcium content when it comes to minerals. Beetroot is said to have a strengthening effect, it stimulates the appetite and supports blood formation due to the high iron content.

Flaxseed

IMG_2064_edited.png

Because they contain so many essential nutrients, flaxseeds are amazing for the overall health of your parrots. Flaxseed is also especially helpful if you have a bird that is prone to feather plucking. Flaxseeds improve feather and skin condition. They are considered very healthy because of their high proportion of alpha-linolenic acid, a polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid, despite their high fat content.

MUSGO ESTRELLADO – False Irish Moss -  Carrageen Moss__Binomial name_ Mastocarpus stellatu

Lithothamnium calcareum is a small red alga. This special algae quickly absorbs minerals and nutrients from seawater, which are 100% natural. The algae are mined off the coast of Iceland and have a high content of calcium and magnesium. This is immensely important for building bones and forming the eggshell.

Algae

Carrots

Simple and colorful, the carrot is a great source of fiber and packed with beta-carotene. Getting your parrot plenty of soluble fiber, like that found in carrots, can keep your bird's cholesterol levels in line and promote regular bowel movements. Carrots also contain important vitamins like vitamin A, vitamin K, and calcium, all of which are important for good bone health.

Coconut

Design ohne Titel(3).png

The medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) found in coconut oil have antiviral and antifungal properties that benefit the bird's gut health. The antioxidants in coconut may also help the immune system by reducing inflammation. Coconut is a high-fiber fruit that can improve your bird's digestion and prevent intestinal obstructions. When fiber is digested, the material clumps together in the stomach before being released into the small intestine. Regular, solid stools are essential to keep the bird's intestines healthy and prevent bacterial infections. Fiber also helps your bird stay full longer and maintain their energy levels.

Strawberry

Strawberries are rich in vitamin C and have countless antioxidants. They also stimulate and strengthen the good bacteria that reside in the lower part of the gastrointestinal tract. Another great thing about strawberries is that it's a low-carb fruit, meaning your parrot won't gain weight. Potassium, magnesium, iron, calcium and vitamin C are just a few of the components found in strawberries. Your birds receive all these substances every day in our extruded pellets.

Banana

Tropical fruits like bananas should be part of your parrot's diet. Bananas contain fiber, vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin B6, potassium, magnesium and various antioxidants. Consumption can improve a parrot's vision, boost its immune system, reduce the long-term effects of aging, and increase its energy levels. Bananas grow in tropical climates around the world, including Asia, South America, and Africa. As our exotic birds are native to all of these regions, you can find Grey Parrots, Macaws, Ring-necked Parakeets, Senegal Parrots, Monk Parakeets and Amazons eating bananas whenever the opportunity arises.

Apple

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away" is a saying we've all heard and with good reason. The same goes for parrots. Apples contain a variety of nutrients that are of immense value to the health of parrots. These nutrients include: vitamin C, vitamin A and magnesium.

Clay

Design ohne Titel(9).png

Mineral clays have long been used in animal nutrition because they ensure healthy digestion and healthier animals. In nature, too, many parrots pick up soil/clay again and again because they instinctively know how good it is for them. It neutralizes toxins in the body and binds them to get out of the body.

Peanut Oil

The main fatty acids in peanut kernel oils are oleic, linoleic and palmitic. Peanut oil is a great source of vitamin E. Vitamin E is actually the name for a group of fat-soluble compounds that have many important functions in the birds body. The main role of vitamin E is to function as an antioxidant, protecting the body from harmful substances called free radicals. Peanut oil is high in both monounsaturated (MUFA) and polyunsaturated (PUFA) fats, both of which have been researched extensively for their roles in reducing heart disease. Studies have shown that monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats may improve blood sugar control. Omega-6 fatty acids are a type of polyunsaturated fat. They are an essential fatty acid, meaning that you must feed them through the diet because the birds body cannot make them.

Along with the better known omega-3 fatty acids, omega-6 fatty acids play a critical role in proper growth and development, as well as normal brain function

Papaya

Fruits like papaya are an important part of a parrot’s balanced diet and they should be eating the right amount every day. Papaya is considered a superfood to parrots and has high levels of vitamin C. Vitamin C acts as a natural stress relief for birds and can boost their immune system.
