Many complete parrot foods are made with pellets in different colours, but the Psittacus range is prepared using no artificial colours. This makes the food look comparatively boring – and purposely so. Parrots are notoriously picky feeders, rejecting any items which do not take their fancy. This is even true with complete foods which have exactly the same constitution in each pellet, despite the pretty range of colours. Birds will often reject one colour pellet and favour another, despite their being no nutritional difference.
Psittacus foods negate this arbitrary acceptance and rejection process by making the pellets the same, nondescript colour. This also makes any additional treats particularly attractive and rewarding.
