I have a 28 yr old jenday/gold cap conure female who was on seed for much of the first part of her life. I was told by my vet to get her off seed and slowly transition her to Harrisons, which he high recommended. Bo has been on Harrison and wont eat some of the other brands - though I tried. Im told at her age shes ancient - but she doesnt act it. Wish I could buy the product in my area so I have to order on line. Thank goodness I can do that!
Best Feed ever
This is the best feed that I have ever given my African Gray, Pappy, who is 12. His feathering, stamina, vocabulary, and overall health are drastically improved in the years he has been eating this diet. I thank Harrisons for helping me to maintain a very healthy bird.

My Grey loves it. Unfortunately she still picks too much---was hoping it would help with that but alas, she likes it and its good for her. I learned from a friend that the store bought pellets CAN be bad; it almost killed her Grey and she put me onto Harrisons. Thank you for a quality, reliable food

Even Daisy Likes It!
When I brought home my baby African Grey Oliver I was prepared by his breeder with a bag of Harrisons which is Olivers staple food. I gave some to my seven year old Red Bellied Daisy who is a finicky eater at best. She loves it!
Great food for picky birds
My Sever Macaw. has been on Harrisons since she was weaned. I tried several other foods but she would just throw it everywhere. My vet suggested Harrisons and she took to it right away.

I wish I had known
African greys, Sun Conures
I have been an avid bird owner for many years and always bought petstores seed mixes. My birds wound up in the vets office many times due to various poor health problems. The vet expressed her preference that after the first bird passed away that I get the new one off seeds and on to Harrisons pellets. I had been afraid that they wouldnt switch, but I contacted Harrisons and spoke to gene, who helped me switch all the birds to High Potency Coarse. It was actually easy to do. This was maybe 15 months ago. Now all three birds have molted and my vet says they are problem free! They look like brand new feathers! Thank you to Dr. Harrison for making this food. My birds love it!

High Potency Course
Great Product! Provides all the nutriants necessary for proper maintenance of health. We feed it to our 7 year old female eclectus and male african grey. They love it and can not get enough of it! The Vet always comments on how healthly they are and look. I highly recommended this product for both daily diet and health recovery.

My Birds derserve the best!
My Amazon had poor coloring to his feathers caused by ignorance on my part. I fed him a seed diet plus table food most of his life. He is 26 years old now and I think he wouldnt be with me much longer were it not for Harrisons! I had changed him to a zupreem diet thinking that was good. Kept him on that a year and then discovered this feed. He has now been on it about 6 months and through a molt. Most of his discolored feathers are replaced with beutiful vibrant colored feathers and he is gorgeous.
We also have a precious young white cap Pionus that is the love of our family. She was hand fed and then kept on zupreem up until about 2 monts ago. I though that the blackish tips on her feathers was a normal coloring of this type of bird but now I know after a few months of Harrisons HP and the new feathers coming in from molting that she was also not properly nourished in her 2 short years thus far! I feel guilty that I hadnt fed her better until now. I will feed them Harrisons forever and am so thankful that I switched both of them to it!

Im using this product for more than 15 years, great breeding results and healthy breeding stock. African Greys and Poicephalus species. Lesser vet costs and more babies.
Dr. Harrison thanks for all your effort you put in this product
