So inlight of my recent mistake with jelly cups for conures an ringnecks (using as a treat every so often) thought i would check what i need to chuck out of my order. I made an order on scarletts for the orange winged amazon ill be getting in a few weeks got abit carried away as i done my usual an clicked on the bird specific bit an all the bits came up an i ordered what i thought seed i went for as5 then i bought pellets zupreem fruit blend some soaking pulse&rice soaking mix anotjer soaking mix that said super healthy a big bag of nuts without the peanuts an a few other bits ill put photos up what i should chuck please do tell me i no ive probably got carried away with the best of intentions an maybe messed up a little bit all my birds get lots of veg and some fruit an sprouting seeds etc but i adamit i do see the extra lil bits an think oh thats a nice extra or that will make a change....obviously i do buy the stuff with the best of intention

In my opinion that's far too much. Have you already placed the order?
I can only tell you that over the years all my parrots have have Tidymix parrot mix, fresh fruit & veg daily, nuts like unsalted cashews/walnuts/pistachios that I buy from Lidl, Pine nuts which can you get in supermarkets or from Tidymix own website.
They also have the occasional millet spray, plus wholemeal seeded piece of bread or rye bread.
I am sure other members will be along with good advice.

lol, you've done almost exactly what i did and i have a cupboard full of bits he won't touch :)

i would personally wait and see what he's on and what he likes, other wise (like me) you'll have a load of stuff in a cupboard doing not a lot.
Lol oh dear ive doing it now 😬 i had fun picking it if it makes it any better and unpacking it 🙄 got some toys an training perch to aint all bad i suppose.

We have all done it hun! Lots of ingredients are available at supermarkets or health food suppliers re sprouting.

Go through and look at the ingredients listed, you are learning what is OK and what is not hun. Please remember that food stuffs for parrots still need to rotated and used in a decent amount of time. You may need to re evaluate what is good to keep and perhaps see if any can be returned unopened of course?
