Parrot Soft Food is ideal to be used as a weaning food for hand-reared parrots when transitioning from Hand Rearing Food to a solid diet.
Birds will readily transition from Parrot Soft Food to Crumbles or Parrot Pellets by mixing the two products together, and then gradually increasing the proportion of Crumbles or Pellets.
