Lafeber Cockatiel Pellets
A cockatiel, like many small birds, will happily eat seed day-in and day-out if given the opportunity; unfortunately, a seed-only diet can shorten his life considerably because seed is high in fat and lacks the nutrients needed to sustain a long, healthy life. Even seed mixes that are coated with vitamins and minerals fall short on complete nutrition because once the bird cracks and hulls of the seed, these benefits are lost.
Lafeber’s Premium Daily Diet for Cockatiels is a high-quality blend of natural ingredients like ground non-GMO corn and soybean meal. Each pellet contains all the nutrients your cockatiel, conure, quaker parrot or lovebird needs for a full, energetic and healthy life.
Lafeber pellets are naturally flavored with molasses
Molasses enhances taste naturally and improves the acceptance of pellets when finicky “seed junkies” are converted to a healthy diet. They are perfectly sized for your cockatiel to crumble up and can be offered as a full meal or as an important part of your bird’s diet. Many cockatiel owners have found that their birds love a combination of foods along with their pellets, such as Nutri-Berries, Avi-Cakes and various fruits and vegetables.
Lafeber grains are literally grown outside Lafeber Company's front door. We also include whole egg, the most digestive form of protein, and essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids are added to the mixed grains. Lafeber’s Premium Daily Diet is omega 3 & 6 fatty acid balanced to give your bird a stronger immune system, stronger bones and healthier feathers. We also naturally flavor and naturally preserve our foods, and each batch of pellets is scientifically tested for quality at an independent laboratory so you can feel good about feeding Lafeber foods to your feathered companion.
- Free of artificial food colors & dyes
- Omega 3 & 6 Balanced

Food for cockatiels should be easy and fun to eat. The wild cockatiel eats primarily seeds and plant material. Lafeber bird foods go a few steps further – they include birdseeds, which are highly palatable for cockatiels, but also pellets, fruits and veggies (plant material), and includes Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids as well as chelated minerals. All of that adds up to a complete and balanced diet for the pet cockatiel. Feeding cockatiels has never been easier. Try Nutri-Forage, Avi-Cakes, Lafeber’s Premium Daily Diet Pellets, Nutri-Meals, Popcorn Nutri-Berries, and Nutri-Berries.
Cockatiels, with their sweet personalities and little top knots, can just steal your heart away! Highly interactive and personable, they often surprise those who are unaware of what wonderful companions they are. Whether they are cute, vain, strutting and whistling little boys, or pretty, adorably sweet and cuddly little girls, those who have cockatiels as family members cannot imagine life without them. With ease, they forever take over our homes and our hearts.
A healthy diet will help your cockatiel companion stay healthy.
