Lafeber's Classic Avi-Cakes Gourmet Small Bird Food
Avi-Cakes is a special blend of premium seeds mixed 50-50 with nutritionally balanced pellets made from non-GMO ingredients, all held together with a great-tasting molasses binder. Its square shape is designed for your bird to hold and pull part — the perfect “work-and-chew-food” to bring out foraging instincts. Your bird might pick and choose his way through a loose seed mix, but he’ll pull, stretch, crunch, and twist his way through Avi-Cakes and consume better nutrition along the way.
Avi-Cake nutrition matches that of most pelleted diets, so it can be fed as a main diet. It also makes the perfect “bridge” food to wean your bird off of seeds and onto pellets, which small birds are especially likely to resist. Avi-Cakes has 50% pellets, so many birds will eat pellets after eating Avi-Cakes.
Our foods are Omega 3 & 6 balanced to promote a healthy immune system and improve skin and feather quality, and they are naturally preserved and flavored. All the seeds and grains in Avi-Cakes are hand-inspected for cleanliness and freshness. Our equipment has been specially designed for just making bird food. We make small batches of food to ensure the best quality possible. Each batch is laboratory tested. Finally, each Avi-Cake is hand-packed. It takes a lot of work to make a great product, but we believe the results are worth it!
About The ManufacturerLafeber Company was built by a father-son team of veterinarians with a shared love of animals. Dr. Lafeber, Sr. developed the very first commercial bird food pellet in the back room of his veterinary clinic in the early 1970′s. Today our recipes are developed by his son, Dr. Ted Lafeber, III along with top veterinarians and nutritionists. Every diet is tested by an independent laboratory to insure optimum pet health. Lafeber Company also consults leading experts in behavior so that our diets provide dietary enrichment and fun.
