Passwell Crumbles are a low-fat, balanced diet for small parrots, cockatiels, budgies, lovebirds, canaries, finches, quail and doves. Use crumbles as a nutritional replacement to dry seed in the diet.

  • Provides excellent nutrition compared to seed-based diets.
  • Improved health through elevated levels of essential amino acids, omega-3&6, vitamins and minerals. 
  • Low fat formula helps with weight control in pet birds.
  • Totally edible to reduce waste and mess.



Feed as a dry crumble, replacing the seed proportion of the bird's diet:

Birds that are accustomed to eating seed need to modify their feeding technique to eat Crumbles:

  • Initially they will disintegrate the food, but they should soon learn to totally consume the Crumbles and even eat any powder produced during feeding.
  • Avoid changing the diet on days that are either very hot or very cold, or during times of stress on the bird.
  • Observe the birds regularly to ensure they are eating the Crumbles.
  • Don't over-fill the feed bowl, as birds will tend to scatter the Crumbles in search of their normal food
  • Have at most two layers of Crumbles in the feed bowl.


Changing to Crumbles

Direct Change to Crumbles: Applies to cockatiels, companion parrots, quail and doves. Remove all seed and treats and provide only Crumbles. Observe the birds closely. If the birds do not eat during the day then provide some seed before nightfall and try again the next day. If this is not successful try "Introducing Crumbles"

Introducing Crumbles: For budgies, canaries, finches and smaller birds. Start with a 50:50 mix of Crumbles and seed. Over the next few days, slowly increase the proportion of Crumbles. Remove all the seed once the birds begin to eat the Crumbles. For very small birds such as finches and canaries Crumbles may be slightly ground down to produce a finer grade feed.

Feeding Guide

Caged birds tend to over-eat and become obese when offered an unlimited supply of food. It is a healthier, and more economical practice to establish your birds' daily food requirement and feed that amount.

Best ever food for tiels

By: sam on 17 January 2020
I would highly recommend passwells crumbles. Since changing my cockatiels to this food their feathers look amazing, the birds are a great healthy weight and the colours of my birds are striking and amazing. A 1kg box will last 2 tiels quite a while. I had no trouble switching my birds from seed to crumbles.
