In the wild, birds spend their days searching for food. As they do this, they are constantly seeking out the medicinal qualities in roots, herbs, barks, and flowers in order to self medicate (stress, crop upset, fungal infection, as a few examples). In the traditional caged bird diet, they are limited to what you put in their bowls. No feed mixture offers them the ability to heal naturally like Bird Salad. There are many similar products out there, but this brand has the most comprehensive list of healing herbs, including an option for chamomile for nervous or feather destructive birds. Use of antibiotics and other medications prophylactically, or supplementing with vitamins can have disastrous effects. Let your birds choose how to feel their best right from their Bird Salad bowl!
This mix of almost 30 natural ingredients offers your birds: liver, kidney and immune system health, digestive system cures, elimination or reduction in fungal or respiratory infections, internal or external parasite loads, and increases your birds overall vigor.
Bird Salad is made from all human grade ingredients, certified organic by the supplier, and all the ingredients are Organic and/or Wildcrafted and Certified Kosher.
Packages are resealable stand up style, heat seal closure and foil inspection label at the seam on all packages. Product is the freshest on the market, with a sales pace that insures your purchase was mixed within 30 days of landing on your doorstep. The volume of sales allows superior buying power, and therefore a consumer savings in retail pricing.
Great for poultry too!

Fill a separate feed bowl with Bird Salad, and after 10 days, mix remaining into their seed/feed mix, sprinkle on top of fresh foods, or mix into cooked mashes. Although it may look like there is still some Bird Salad remaining, it is usually missing some of ingredients the bird is seeking out to cure the ailment of that particular period of time. With ingredients such as kelp granules, and spirulina, any chaff at the bottom of the bag should be treated the same to not waste a single speck of this fabulous super food.
All species of birds will love this holistic remedy, but any species of Australian grassparakeet, finch or canary will consume it at a much higher rate then some of your larger hookbill parrots.
