There are presently 5 species-specific BirD-elicious! Origins Wild Diets® to choose from and which should form the staple food for your bird / parrot. These are:  
African Grey, Cockatoo, Macaw, Eclectus and Cockatiel. In addition there is 'Basic Bird' which is a universal wild diet option and can be used as an alternative to the  
species specific blends. 
 
In some instances, more than one variety of staple diet can be used. All other foods are complementary to the staple diet, providing different flavours, textures and additional  
nutritional benefits. 
 
Please note that there is no such thing as a 'total and complete' food made for birds by any company. Always feed fresh foods to your parrots on a daily basis.
