There’s a reason Amazons and African greys and other parrots like seed; it gives their beak something to do. Seed might be fun, but seed alone doesn’t offer complete nutrition. That’s why we collaborated with top avian veterinarians, nutritionists and behavioral consultants to create a recipe that gives your bird the best of both worlds — taste and texture and solid nutrition, too.
Avi-Cakes blends 50-percent premium seeds with 50-percent nutritionally balanced pellets, all held together with a great-tasting molasses binder. Its square shape is the perfect “work-and-chew-food” for your parrot to hold, pull, twist and crunch to bring out his foraging instincts. Your bird might pick and choose his way through a loose seed mix, but he’ll tear into Avi-Cakes and consume better nutrition along the way. Avi-Cake nutrition matches that of most pelleted diets and can be fed as a main meal. It is also an ideal “bridge” food to wean your parrot off of seeds and onto pellets, as many parrots start to eat pellets after eating Avi-Cakes.
Avi-Cakes is Omega 3 & 6 balanced to promote a healthy immune system and improve skin and feather quality, as well as naturally preserved and flavored. All the seeds and grains in Avi-Cakes are hand inspected for cleanliness and freshness. Our equipment has been specially designed for just making bird food. We make small batches of food to insure the best quality possible. Each batch is laboratory tested. Finally, each Avi-Cake is hand packed. It takes a lot of work to make a great product, but we believe the results are worth it!
