Unfortunately there are a few birds that will simply only eat one thing. Often this is sunflower seeds. In time these birds will suffer a huge range of nutritional problems. The most difficult challenge is to improve the protein-to-energy ratio of the diet. This is important for feather formation, quick moults and weight control.
Only The Birdcare Company has tackled this problem by developing Fussy Feeder Essentials. This is one of the rare times we suggest you supplement through the drinking water.
Fussy Feeder Essentials should be added to the drinking water daily. Because the germs in the water will benefit from this nutritious supplement we insist you also add Aviclens. Calcivet is added to this drinking water twice a week.
This supplementation turns junk food into a highly nutritious diet. Interestingly this system also tends to encourage most birds to be more adventurous with their food.

When I got my Green-Cheeked Conure he refused to try any fresh fruit or vegetables before I used this, and would only eat seed. Also, his feathers were not in the best condition, very dull with stress lines showing through them. I tried him on this supplement and was amazed at the transformation. In the first month of using it he started trying new foods and eating pellets, and his new feathers came through bright with no stress lines. I also give him Calcivet.
