Maintenance Diet is Vetafarm’s original veterinary formulated diet for all parrots with no
artificial colours, flavours or added sugars. Proudly Australian made with local produce and over 30 years of avian nutritional expertise – Maintenance Diet is both delicious and good for your bird.
Provides a balanced diet that fulfills your bird’s core nutritional requirements and supports growth, optimum feather development, as well as tissue and brain function.

Unbalanced diets can cause nutritional deficiencies, which can lead to health issues and disease. Examples may include musculoskeletal disease, cardiac disease, reproductive issues, iron storage disease and hepatic lipidosis. Maintenance Diet is veterinary formulated to fulfill all of your birds core nutritional requirements in an easy to feed formula. Recommended as a balanced diet to maintain healthy weight without excess fat deposition. These pellets are extrusion cooked for optimum digestibility, palatability and food safety.


Maintenance Diet should be fed as your bird’s primary diet (80% of daily feed consumed).
The remaining 20% of the diet should be made up of healthy fruit and vegetables (15%) and a small amount of treat foods such as nuts and seeds (5%), to provide variety and enrichment in their diet. Fresh water should be available at all times.
Daily Pellet Recommendation:
Vetafarm recommends that parrots are fed a minimum of 10% of their bodyweight in pellets per day, for example:
90g Cockatiel (or similar): provide a minimum 9g of Maintenance Diet per day.
150g Sun conure (or similar): provide a minimum 15g of Maintenance Diet per day.
300g Galah (or similar): provide a minimum of 30g of Maintenance Diet per day.
These feeding recommendations should be used as a guide only. Be sure to check with your veterinarian for more specific information if your bird has special dietary needs due to a health condition.
