Harrisons High Potency Coarse

MAXIMUM NUTRITIONAL FORMULA FOR MEDIUM TO LARGE BIRDS

Year-round formula for all medium to large parrots, especially African greys, cockatoos, large conures, eclectus, macaws and pionus. Other species may be switched to Adult Lifetime Formula after a 6 month conversion period.

  • Conversion: All birds should start out and remain on High Potency Formula for a period of at least 6 months.
  • Special needs: For birds that are moulting, overweight, underweight, particularly active, housed in a cold climate, recovering from an illness or affected by liver or kidney disease.
  • Weaning birds: Feed High Potency Formula for at least 6-9 months.
  • Breeding birds: Birds should be fed High Potency Formula 1-2 months prior to the breeding period and until chicks are weaned or for at least six months before resuming Adult Lifetime Formula. The amount of supplemental certified organic vegetables and fruits may be increased until the chicks are weaned. For each 2 Tbs (20 g) formula, add ½ Tbs (5 g) certified organic peanuts or almonds and 1Tbs (10 g) certified organic sunflower seeds.

Storage: Harrison’s Bird Foods do not contain artificial preservatives. Once opened, a bag of Harrison’s should be used up within 8 weeks. Storing food in fridge or freezer helps maintain freshness.

FEEDING OF ADDITIONAL ITEMS

  • Harrison’s products should make up 75-80% by volume of your bird’s diet.
  • It is recommended that 15-20% by volume of the overall diet should be good quality, ideally organic, vegetables and fruits. Dark yellow meaty, or dark green leafy, items such as sweet potatoes, carrots, pumpkin, winter squash, broccoli, parsley, spinach, mango or papaya are the most beneficial.
  • It is recommended that 5% by volume of the overall diet should be high quality, ideally organic, items which provide a rich source of omega-3s. Examples include chia seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds, or certain nuts.
  • It is not recommended to supplement with vitamins or other bird or animal supplementary products.
