We believe in weaning our baby birds based on their individual needs and rates of maturity. It is important that all babies get a good start in life, both nutritionally and psychologically. Each of our babies is given a handfeeding formula that is best suited to their species and individual needs. They are exposed to a variety of foods at an early age, which allows them to explore and experiment with different tastes and textures. Our babies are weaned onto a pelleted diet, various trail mix blends, fresh fruits and vegetables, cooked beans and rice, grains, breads, pastas, and nuts (for the Macaws & Conures).
