Medium Grey Sunflower, Hemp Seed, Paddy Rice, White Proso Millet, Carrot Dices, Hulled Pumpkin Seed, Cantalope Seed,Whole Wheat, Buckwheat, Oat Groats, Red Proso Millet, California Fruit Medley(Sun-dried Apricots, Nectarines, Pears, Peaches, Golden Raisins, Black Currents, Cranberries), Deluxe Trail Mix, Shelled Almonds, Coconut Chips, Dehydrated Green Peas, Chili Peppers, Sesame Seed, Papaya and Pineapple Dices, Red Bell Pepper Dices, Apple Wedges and Orange Oil (Vitamin C used as natural preservative). Note: this diet is not vitamin- fortified due to special Eclectus metabolic requirements.
This is a good item to mix in, but I wouldn't use it as a sole diet for an eclectus. I add a little of this in with the Volkman Fruit & Nut Goodies for a better blend. I also add in some of the different variety of Goldenfeast foods, as they are also safe for the eclectus and do not have the colored pellets that are not safe for the eclectus.

I rescued a male eclectus 3 years ago. He is a feather picker and the owner was also diagnosed with cancer and had to get rid of him. He rapidly bonded to us, and we tried environment enrichment,fresh food and fruits, trick training, vitamins, hormones, anti anxiety meds -- everything we could think of to grow his plumage. I started him on this diet three weeks ago, and he has ~ 20% more growth. Everyone who knows him has been commenting on how many feathers are growing. Thank you for this fabulous diet!

If you like your parrot to have sunflower seeds then this is the mix for you. I knew when I purchased this that it would contain sunflower seeds, but I didn't think it would be a third of the bag. My intent was to pick out the sunflower seeds before feeding to my 2 Eclectus parrots. After picking out all of the seeds, which took quite some time, I had one heaping paper plate of seeds and 2 paper plates of the other ingredients. The other ingredients look pretty good, although it is all small stuff. I haven't fed it to Oliver and Ziggy yet so I'm not sure if they'll like it, but I will not be purchasing it again as the cost is too high based on the amount of sunflower seeds that I had to pay for! Wish I could add a picture, but I don't see a way to do that here.

It's okay.It's mostly those little tiny round seeds, whatever they're called. Not like the picture. Not a very big variety. I mix it with other things to give it a little more appeal or my birds wouldn't touch it. It reminds me of the most basic seed you'd find on the grocery store shelf.

As described, but there was a mummified dead mouse in the seed halfway through the bag. Oops. Suppose this is can't be avoided with grain products, but kinda gross.

Ordered the mix with sunflower seed, however I received the sunflower seed free mix. I was disappointed (as is my peach face), but was I am completely out of food and didn't have the time for the return / reship for the correct product. Could just be that I'm missing the sunflower which my bird loves, but the seed seems to be very heavy in millet with little else. I've ordered this before and never had this issue though. in the future i'll make sure I have enough time to return if I don't get what I ordered, but it will do for this round.
