Banquet Gold Label is a seed and biscuit based diet with a variety of nuts and dried fruits added according to the different species’ mixes. For parakeets, budgies and other smaller hookedbills and finches and canaries we use a different seed blend.
These products are completely supplemented foods. They contain our “Essentials” vitamins, highly bio-available “Rapisorb” minerals, limiting amino acids (for stress free moults and weight control), and our “Flourish” herbs for immune and digestive support. The protein-to-energy ratio has been balanced to avoid birds getting overweight.
Banquet is a real alternative to pellets for someone who wants a balanced complete food without having to add supplements. Birds love it and they will be fit and healthy eating it. Because it contains a variety of nutritious foods, your bird is able to balance its protein and energy requirements from the selection.
Banquet Gold Label is a complete food. It should make up at least 75% of the birds diet and the bird must be eating a broad range of its ingredients not just picking out its favourite bits.
While Banquet Gold Label is the core of the diet we encourage you to feed a variety of other foods, fruits, vegetables and some human foods as treats. Avoid dairy products, chocolate, avocado and salty processed foods.
With all Banquet products we advise occasional supplementation with Calcivet.
Available in 3 varieties.

My two cockatiels love this product.
I've been using Banquet for the last 18 years and my only complaint at this time is that the product is dusty.
OK after blowing the dust off and the birds feed, no problem.

I prefer this seed to pellets as looks more natural. Took time for my bird to realise he has to eat biscuits too so he is still transitioning. He's a 10 year old African Ringneck.

My Cockatoo loves Banquet. She gets it after "birdie time" and when you say to her "time for posh seed" she scurries back to her cage and waits patiently for me to put it in for her :)

My Meyers developed a calcium deficiency years ago from eating a poor diet (one bought from ordinary pet shops). Since finding the birdcare company, my parrot's health is A++ - shes shiny and so full of beans... I HIGHLY recommend Birdcare 'complete diet' and supplements. I also supplement my Meyers parrot diet with product 'Feast' (mainly fruit flavour) - which she adores - bird heaven! and the white millet. She adores variety with the different bowls. With all of these I know my parrots health is looked after as best as it can be-I am under the impression with my birds behaviour that she really is the happiest bird in the world! - (prob. also the greediest as well!) thanks to Birdcare Co.
