Here's Marlene's story in her own words why she partnered with TOP's Parrot Food:
"My passion for birds began when I was 7 years old with my first bird, a Cockatiel named Doolie. Since then, I have dedicated my life to loving, rescuing and caring for parrots. That’s why I am excited to work with TOP’s Parrot Food to bring you Marlene Mc’Cohen’s Signature Blend, a USDA Organic Certified mix of non GMO ingredients to supply your companion with the nutrients they need to live a happier and healthier life. Remember to also feed your birds fruits and vegetables daily."

What is the difference between natural and artificial Vitamin D?
There is natural Vitamin D and artificial Vitamin D. The Vitamin D in most pellets is artificial. When taking artificial Vitamin D you need to increase the liquid intake, meaning you have to drink more which is difficult to get a parrot to do. The Vitamin D in TOP’s pellets is provided by seaweeds and alfalfa, which are natural forms of Vitamin D. From this natural form of the Vitamin D the body can absorb as much as it needs and no increased drinking is necessary and therefore no danger of kidney damage.
TOP's products are packed in consumer grade retail bags and contain oxygen absorbers to extend shelf life for more than 12 months. This process is different than vacuum sealing so some bags may contain more natural atmospheric volume than others and may be less formed than other bags.
Why Don't TOPs Use Soy, Peanuts or Wheat In Their Pellets?
Here's why TOP's Parrot Food pellets do not contain soy, peanuts or wheat:
Soybeans in their natural state contain large quantities of natural toxins and there is data that soy is cumulatively toxic when fed to animals. For example, The PARROT SOCIETY NEW ZEALAND claims that soy products in bird food have caused such problems as immune system breakdown, failure of organs and multiplication of the birds’ own benign bacteria.
It seems that more and more birds develop allergic reactions to peanuts, so we view them as a great treat for birds that are not allergic to them, but not part of their daily diet.
Wheat is a common allergen and contains about 80 different components that can cause a negative reaction.
Other pellets on the market contain fillers such as corn, soy, peanuts, added minerals and added artificial vitamins. TOP's contains only real food ingredients.
