    The sprouts Marshmallow prefers is by itself without any spices. He’s a finicky eater but with his fruits, veggies and walnuts he will slowly eat them. Its healthy and I am so happy I found Best Bird Food Ever. Thank you! 🙂

    Our Eclectus boy ate everything…amazing! We’ve tried in the past some organic sprouting blends with no success, he was not impressed.
    This blend is obviously very much appreciated. Our boy has been plucking very badly for months, now we cannot wait to see his feather condition improving.

    The price is a little high

    I wish I would have had my video ready to post what I saw:
    My female Eclectus came down one side of her cage, nearly tripped herself to get to her “sprout/fresh f/v” bowl to start eating right away.
    She raised her head from the bowl and looked like she had a Santa Claus beard and mustache!
    I have tried sprouting beans and such from organic stores, but nothing compares to BBFE. It nearly sprouts 100%, where my store bought sprouting was about 50-60%.
    Thank you Ms. Leslie for all you do for our birds!
