Susan B. asks:
What size pellet should I get for a Moluccan cockatoo (aka salmon-crested cockatoo)?
Would pellets for a large Macaw or African grey be appropriate?
You have a lot of options with a large Cockatoo.
You of course can use the largest pellet or biscuit.
But will your bird take a bite and drop the rest?
If yes, then you may find yourself needing to go with a smaller parrot pellet to get more from your purchase.
We have a customer that owns macaws but she gets the 4 mm Hagen Tropican Pellets instead of the larger Pellet sticks to save on wasted food.
These are some suggested pelleted products listed from largest to smallest that we have available to us.
Hagen Tropican High Performance Biscuits
Hagen Tropican High Performance Parrot Sticks
Hagen Tropican Parrot Granules 4 mm
I hope this helps.
