Great Bird Food Pellet Conversion Tip from Hagen

Last Updated on by mitchrezman

Tropimix method of diet conversion helps in removing any instinctual tendency a bird might have in a new diet; i.e. if the bird doesn’t recognize the food as food, their instinct advises them that it is probably poison.

Here are instructions –Tropi-Mix Method

For birds that are resistant to above-mentioned conversion methods, try moistened Tropi-Mix. (1 part Tropi-Mix to equal part hot water) The hot water softens the fruit, corn, legumes, and most importantly, softens the Tropican morsels in the Tropi-Mix.

The softened Tropican coats your bird’s favorite seeds with the nutty Tropican flavor, therefore the bird becomes better accustomed to the flavor. Since all of the nuts and seeds in Tropi-Mix are already hulled, this can help break the bird’s habit of hulling seeds. Be sure to remove moisten food from your bird’s cage after one hour.
