My bird would only pick at the regular flavor pellets, but she LOVES the pepper flavor. I have an Eclectus that is extremely fussy!

My Amazons love Pepper Lifetime Coarse.
Every Amazon I have been fortunate to room with has loved and do love their Harrisons Pepper Lifetime Coarse pellets.
I was fortunate to learn of this product from Dr. Anne MacDonald at the Nightowl Bird Hospital in Vancouver B.C., yes Canada. My latest DYH does not want to eat anything else in formulated food since I managed to wean him onto this product within 2 weeks of adopting him.

A+ for spicy birds
If your bird loves pepper fresh or dried as much as or more than fruit flavors, this is a must have!! My gray doesnt toss even one square of the Pepper Lifetime out of his cage. That says it all.
