weeks ago, we went to the airport to pick up Joey, our
Patagonian conure. Joey is three years old and has lived
a wonderful life in Alabama with his mom. His mom needed
to rehome him, due to her poor health. I was speechless
to be able to have Joey fly all the way here to become
part of my family. The thing is, I think Joey was very
confused and missed his mom, as he wouldn't eat much
other than pellets and spoonfed oatmeal. One day shy
of the two week mark, I made a pot of Beak Appetit's
Cream of Tweet. BINGO! That was it! He stuck that beak
in and didn't come up until he was full.
I just want to thank Beak Appetit for a quality product.
Now, Joey is on his way to eating himself! - Marie Dalzell
Pope, my 14 year old Goffins Cockatoo HATES pellets
but absolutely loves whatever is I am cooking. I was
sceptical about your product, but when I took it home
and cooked it, the family wondered about the wonderful
dish I was making for dinner. It smells so good! Sadly,
I told them it was for "The Chicken". (Our
nickname for Pope) Pope was also very eager to eat
whatever was in the pot. When I put it in his dish,
I did not see him pick his head up until he was good
and full. It was wonderful to see that food covered
beak when his head finally did resurface. Cooking
it is also so easy and convenient and I can give him
the variety he needs. Thank you, Beak Appetit, you
made a bird and his mommy very happy. - Sandee Aga
recently ordered a sampler of your six flavors in the
trial size packages from one of your distributors. This
is the first time I have tried a cooked bird food for
my African Grey, Sydney. We are on the third packet,
this week, "Cream of Tweet." Sydney is enjoying
this one, as well as the "Cinnamon Sunrise."
I have been following the package directions and cooking
the whole packet. I am looking forward to seeing which
of the remaining three flavors Sydney likes. This is
a nice way to put more variety into his diet. -Crystal
just wanted to tell you how much my new Half Moon
Conure is enjoying your wonderful foods. About 2 years
ago I purchased my first order of Beak Appetit for
our 'special needs' Green Cheek Conure. She has no
lower mandible but is able to eat your foods just
fine and looks forward to her cooked dinner daily.
Now our new baby is now also a big fan. We were able
to purchase your food from a local supply store. Unfortunately,
the store is no longer in business so we have just
placed another order through your web site. I also
ordered the Wheat Grass for both birds and can't wait
to see their reaction. Thanks for being so concerned
and providing birdy moms (and dads) of the world with
such great, convenient and nourishing goodies for
our feathered kids.
I have enclosed a photo of my girls. - Marlena J
African Grey, Cookie, is 37 years old and a very picky
eater. I gave her your Calypso Spice this morning and
she was looking for more this afternoon. I heated up
another batch, she ate all that too. I was amazed! The
only other thing she eats like that is her daily chicken
wing. I hope that she might stop her plucking, I have
had her for 13 years and she was already plucked when
she moved in with me.
Thank you so much for your product. I almost never write
this kind of letter- "but she liked it, she really
liked it!" -Michelle and Cookie
just wanted to share this picture and story of Lucy
a 5 year old Congo African Grey, a recent addition
to our home in December 2002.
Lucy was a 'picker' and almost completely plucked
when we received her. For 4 years he had lived on
a diet of Zupreem Pellets and a recent addition of
seeds. Lucy was not interested in her Zupreem, she
ONLY wanted the seed! I learned from her former owner
that she had continuously picked her feathers for
4+ years.... While searching the internet for a solution
for Lucy, I saw your site and the testimonials of
your customers and their beloved parrots with miraculous
Since the price of you diet is very affordable, I
decided to try it... "What did I have to loose?"
When the package arrived, I made up a batch right
away....it smelled WONDERFUL! --Lucy LITERALLY dove
beak-first into the Nuts For Alfredo I had prepared.
She now looks forward to her meals which I supplemented
with fresh fruit and vegetables.
--And the best part??? ....LOOK, her feathers are
coming back and she has learned to preen herself properly!

Just wanted to report
that your products are TOO popular to last long in
this house. A while back, we ordered a 6 pack, thinking
that would last us quite a while with only one Blue
Front Amazon in the house. Humming gleefully, we cooked
up several small batches of each flavor, cut into
cubes & froze. This worked nicely, as we were
able to make 2 months worth of food in a short time.
A quick whirl in the microwave, and our dear green
friend had a warm meal every day.
Now, to be sure, he
first thought that maybe this was okay but not outstanding.
Like any seed/nut junkie, he had to be weaned slowly.
Within a few weeks, he was really tucking into his
Beak Appetit with gusto, and NOW makes very sure we
remember to bring him his warm meal at the same time
we sit down to dinner. Lord help us if we forget!
He now pushes aside seeds in order to get his good
Tonight, as I reached
for the last 3 little cubes for his dinner, I realized
I'd have to make up another couple of batches. So
I sent my hubby on a search for the "special"
place that I'd put the Beak Appetit mixes. I warned
him it was a heavy box. Which it had been. UNTIL the
field rat who's moved in for the winter evidently
discovered that Beak Appetit is really tasty! (Life
in an old farmhouse is sometimes populated with unwelcome
guests.) To our shock and dismay, the box was so light
I doubted it was what we were looking for. Mr. Rat
had systematically eaten his way through all but two
small packets (we had repackaged them in convenient
sizes for variety batches). This meant taking out
small zip lock bags from the bags you sent. He hadn't
left but a bit of dust - ate every last bite!
AT LAST, we had an explanation
for why our carefully baited traps had gone untouched
so long that the really good blue cheese and peanut
butter/cracker bait had simply dried up for want of
attention. Mr. Rat knew where the good stuff was!
Next time, we're baiting the traps with Beak Appetit!
Whisking away the tiny
portion of Beak Appetit left so the poor parrot will
get some of his food, we sighed, vowed to dismantle
the pantry and find Mr. Rat, and of course, had to
sit down and order AGAIN some of your really outstanding
No doubt about it. If
Beak Appetit does for rats what it does for parrots,
then we're guessing Mr. Rat is very happy, enjoying
his meals with the many varied flavors, gleaming with
good health, and possibly now has green, glossy feathers!
Thanks for a great product.
My bird thanks you, I thank you, and I'm very sure
there's a family of field rats who think they've died
and gone to heaven. (Which this weekend, just might
happen to them!)

is a photograph of my orange wing parrot Rexie who
is about ten years old. Rexie has had a chronic feather
loss problem for the past several years. He has been
under the care of several avian veterinarians for
this very frustrating condition which seemed to be
incurable. We tried everything including vitamin injections,
lots of new toys and frequent baths which were all
without success. Rexie has been on a diet of Beak
Appetit parrot food for almost a year and a miracle
has occurred. Rexie has all his feathers now and is
a truly happy and energetic bird. Incidentally Rexie's
favorite recipe is Caribbean Crunch. - Barry Patten
Rexie, an Orange Wing
I received our very first order of Beak Appetit. I
have always been hesitant to order "prepared
cooked" foods for my conure because she is a
"special needs baby " and has no lower mandible.
All of the other brands I have tried she has rejected
and have more work for me than I need. I have been
cooking and putting everything through a food mill
and/or processor for her since we brought her home
1 1/2 years ago. All I can say is "bless you."
She 'chowed' down on her first mouthful of instant
Calypso Spice and literally "purred" through
dinner. I prepared our first batch and froze the remainder
of the cooked food in ice cube trays for defrosting.
I will still make and bake all of her favorite things
but it will be so nice to have Beak Appetit for a
quick change during those "hectic, gotta have
it quick days." We look forward to trying the
other two varieties we ordered, Nuts for Alfredo and
Caribbean Crunch. Wishing you a happy holiday and
many thank for an excellent product. - Marlena Juniman.
seems lately I am writing more letters of complaint
than compliment. However, today it pleases me to write
this letter to you regarding Beak Appetit bird food.
have been told by many breeders to purchase various
brands of cooked food such as Crazy Corn etc. After
looking at the ingredients in some of these foods,
in addition to the cartoonish packaging, I decided
that this type of food looked more like filler than
food. Besides why should I cook for my birds when
I don't even cook for myself?
I went into a new pet store in Phoenix that had been
open for a month. As I was looking around I noticed
your Beak Appetit products, as I was reading your
ingredients, I noticed how nutritious all of the ingredients
were. I was amazed at the quality and the vitamins
they provided also. I chose the Caribbean Crunch for
my birds because of the vitamin A and the exotic ingredients
included. Also, I must mention the packaging. Very
professional. More attention given to the product
inside than cartoonish pictures and catchy phrases.
A very simple label with a readable font, truly shows
how much thought went into this product.
Joey and Maddie, Enjoying Beak Appetit
I broke down and started making this for my birds.
It's very easy.....A lot easier than I thought. The
aroma of the spices was the first thing that hit me.
The combination of nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon definitely
made it pretty obvious to me that I purchased a product
of natural ingredients.....No flavorings or fillers
I was persuaded......now for my birds. I could't`t
believe my eyes. I gave them each a bowl and they
ate and ate for hours. They get a bowl every night
around 4:00 and somehow their biological clocks must
kick in at that time, because they get on their perch
and wait for their bowls of Caribbean Crunch. They
absolutely love this product and I feel good making
it for them. A special thanks from Maddie, my African
Grey and Joey my Eclectus. And a special thanks from
me, their mom for your conscientious efforts in supplying
a nutritious vitamin fortified "dinner"
for my babies.
