Feeding

Here at Ironbark Aviaries most of our birds are fed a staple diet of Pellets, although a few get dry seed as their staple food. We like to feed a variety of other foods daily to suit the nutritional requirements of the different species of birds we keep. This ranges from a high fruit diet for the Eclectus Parrots to natural Gum Nuts for the Cockatoos and everything in between.

We feed a large variety of browse to all our birds, as this encourages them to forage for their food as they would in the wild and also creates natural activity to keep them occupied helping to prevent behavioural issues such as feather plucking.
