The F-word: Fats are a good thing!
By Dr Jason Crean (Paragraph from an article from Parrot's Fine Cuisine and Nutritional Guide Cookbook)
Essential Fatty Acids are often referred to as the “good” fats and avian requirements are substantial though all fats serve a vital purpose in the diet. EFAs are critical for normal reproduction, feather production and a healthy immune system. Animals require these fats to properly absorb vitamins like A, D, K, and E.
A deficiency in Omega-3’s may cause stunted growth, issues with vision impairment and motor incoordination, and immune dysfunction as discussed above. Omega-6 (linoleic) fatty acids are a bit more readily available in the diet as our birds can easily obtain a sufficient amount in seeds, grains and some nuts.
These fatty acids are required for healthy skin and strong feathers, normal reproduction, and maintaining normal organ function. Deficiencies in these fats may lead to a failure to gain weight, degeneration of liver and kidneys, behavioral disturbances, inability of wounds to heal sufficiently, infertility, poor or abnormal feather development and dry, scaly skin. It’s all about balance when it comes to Omega-3’s and Omega-6’s.

This along with the teas has got to be one of my favourite products. It is beautiful and it is the birds special treat. They adore it with their chop. Such a variety in there.
I fed this to my guys (Petz Conure) & (Pale Blue Quaker) with some Go Nuts on 1st serving and they must have thought it was awesome as they were happily munching on this straight away! Overall really impressed with this product and will be getting more of this when I run low without a doubt. Happy Birds = Happy Human.
