General Daily Feeding Recommendations
To maximize effectiveness Harrison’s Bird Foods should make up around 90% of the total daily diet (by weight).
•  feed fresh food daily, do not "top off".
•  to help reduce waste, feed as distinct meals.
•  see invidual product info for specific details.           
•  in most situations it is ok to allow bird to eat all they want.

Supplementing With Other Food Items

Supplementation should be limited to no more than 10% of the overall diet.  It is important to carefully follow supplementation guidelines for Harrison’s to be fully effective. Over-supplementation may result in dilution of nutrients.

Offer certified organic vegetables and fruits in small quantities; select dark yellow meaty or dark green leafy items such as sweet potatoes, carrots, pumpkin, winter squash, broccoli, parsley, spinach, mango or papaya.

It is not recommended to supplement with vitamins, minerals or other bird or animal food products.

Storage & Shelf Life
Harrison’s is committed to protecting your bird from artificial preservatives. Here are some suggestions to keep your food fresh:

•  Smell the product for freshness  prior to feeding.
•  Squeeze all air out of the bag and zip it shut at the top.
•  If the zip lock gets removed or damaged, fold the top over several times and close with a clip.
•  Keep food in original bag. The Harrison’s bag has a foil barrier that blocks oxygen permeation and blocks light that damages the vitamin content.
•  Do not repackage food into plastic bags or Tupperware as the food will remain much fresher for a longer period in the Harrison’s bag.
•  Use contents within 4-6 weeks of opening bag.
•  Purchase Harrison’s foods only in their original packaging.  Never purchase repackaged food.
•  Refrigerating or freezing  does not extend expiration dating but may help to maintain freshness.
