Lafeber Original Avi-Cakes Small Bird blends 50-percent premium seeds with 50-percent nutritionally balanced pellets, all held together with a great-tasting molasses binder. Its square shape is the perfect “work-and-chew-food” for your bird to hold, pull, twist and crunch to bring out his foraging instincts. Your bird might pick and choose his way through a loose seed mix, but he’ll tear into Avi-Cakes and consume better nutrition along the way. Avi-Cake nutrition matches that of most pelleted diets and can be fed as a main meal. It is also an ideal “bridge” food to wean your parrot off of seeds and onto pellets, as many parrots start to eat pellets after eating Avi-Cakes.
