Good for ruling out certain allergies

posted 6 years ago

I have lovebird with a mysterious skin condition. His face is partially bald where he's scracthed the featers off and they don't seem to be growing back. After spending lots of money, lab work, biopsies, etc. the vet diagnosed it as an autoimmune reponse, basically an allergy to something. His suggested that it might be artifical colors or preservatives and to try a bird food without any of those things. I diligently bought Harrison's for about
9 months. The Harrison's is expensive. The only place I could get it was the internet so I also had to pay for shipping. And, because it has no preservatives, it has a short shelf life. I couldn't save money on shipping by buying multiple bags at a time because one little lovebiurd can only eat so much. The bird seemed to tolerate it ok, but then again, it was the only food he was offered for months. I then started adding in other single food treats, one at a time. After about 9 months, the bird was no worse but he was no better. I then started thinking he might be allergic to something that was in the Harrison's too, like corn. I switched him to a rice-based formula by another company specially made for birds with food sensitivites and allergies. The result was the same. The bird was no better but no worse. He seems happy on the rice-based pellets, which cost me much less than the Harrison's. So I'm through with the Harrison's. It's a quality product, and I wish more bird food pellets were made without artifical color. But until I can buy it locally and at least save on the shipping, I'm not going back to Harrison's. It's simply too expensive.

Pros: organic, no artificial colors

Cons: VERY EXPENSIVE, has short shelf life, not available in stores

About the only non-seed based product he really likes

posted 6 years ago

Monet has begun to transition from a primarily seed-based diet and on teh recommendation of my avian veterinarian, I chose to give Harrison's a try. It has taken a little while to get him to be familiar with it (he's suspicious of any new food) but now that he's tried it, it's like "Hey Mikey, he LIKES it!"

I especially like that it seems not to be subject to those little flour moths or whatever the hell they are that seem to infest so many of the seed products we've tried.

Finally, it's certified Organic!

Pros: shelf life, not a moth host

Cons: a tad pricey

Good food

posted 6 years ago

I recently switched my Green Cheek Conure over to this food after seeing our vet. He recomended a few pelleted diets but this one seamed to be the best so I got it. Petrie switched over to this food almost over night, all I did was tell her the new food she had were called "pellets" then I'd get real excited when she would eat them and just keep telling her "don't forget to eat your pellets" and she went over immediatley. I was told she should only loose 10% body weight from the switch but never weighed her (not recomended) from how good she's doing plus all her treats. I can now have a bowl of a seed diet along with her pellets and she'll eat both so they must taste good. She recently started eating her power treats as well.

Only drawback is they're organic (healthier for internal organs) though they don't have a good shelf life, it was recomended to me online to put the unused portion in the freezer and it should increase the shelf life.

Pros: Quality organic pellet

Cons: Shelf life

Great food for your bird

posted 6 years ago

This is a top of the line bird food. it is a little pricey and can only be sold through vets, but it's worth it in the long run for the health of your bird.

Pros: very healthy diet

Cons: A little pricey

Good stuff

posted 5 years ago

My African grey has been eating Harrison's for about 7 years. He is very healthy and has great feather condition. He still loves to cheat and eat seeds but in the evening when he goes to bed 99% of the time he eats the Harrision's first. He is a picky eater, I have a very hard time introducing new fruits and vegetables to him so it is nice to know that he is eating a healthy diet.

Pros: Organic

Cons: Expensive
