A Unique Formulation with Optimum Nutrition for Baby Parrots
Hand Feeding Formula Parrots
A long-time favourite among parrot breeders and aviculturists alike, the Hand-Feeding Formula is a result of industry-leading research and development at HARI. Parrot breeders worldwide have grown to trust Tropican Hand-Feeding Formula for providing their baby birds with all the essential nutrients necessary for excellent growth and brilliant plumage. The Hand-Feeding Formula is a finely ground up form of the High Performance biscuits. This is to include the benefits of high temperature extrusion cooking such as gelatinization of the starches which improves the water holding properties of the formula, destruction of field bacteria, and easier digestion.
Tropican’s advanced Hand-Feeding Formula delivers all the nutritional potency that makes it a leading baby parrot food. It’s an excellent peanut-derived source of fat and protein, as well as a source of essential grains that complement amino acid profiles, all critical to the proper growth and well-being of parrot chicks from hatch through the fledgling age. A rich source of Omega fatty acids from flaxseed, peanuts and sunflower seeds, Tropican makes feathers shine and helps support a healthy body.
Proudly Canadian Made
We are very proud of Tropican’s outstanding 30+ year tradition of raising thousands of parrots over several generations at HARI. At a time when most bird food companies have shut their research centers, HARI continues its ongoing work on the research and development of advanced bird nutrition. In fact, HARI is the longest-standing research facility dedicated to studying the care and breeding of parrots.
Tropican uses only the freshest grains and legumes from the most recent crops.
Ingredients are sourced locally, which means consumers get fresher food faster. In addition, the fact that it’s now made in close geographical proximity to HARI, located in Rigaud, means quicker turnaround times for final HARI quality assurance approvals and enhanced freshness-to-market efficiencies.
At HARI, Quality Control is a 3-Step Process
Did you know that EVERY SINGLE LOT of Tropican food formulations developed at Hagen Industries are tested and fed to HARIs own flock?
Highest Quality Ingredients and First-Rate Quality Control Processes Mean Premium Quality Foods
Nutritional/Chemical Assay – Raw Material Control
Raw ingredients are inspected, analyzed, and tested for nutrient
content, aflatoxins, and residual pesticide contamination.
Biological Assay – In Process Control
Blended/extruded ingredients are sampled and tested
for microbiology/chemical analysis and nutrient/moisture
levels by internal and independent laboratory.
HARI Flock Feeding Trials – Final Product Control
Ready to be packaged lots are sent to be tested for final
moisture levels, nutritional content, and feeding trials on
live parrots at the HARI facility.
This process is part of the Hagen Industries/HARI Quality Assurance & Food Safety Guarantee, to ensure your bird is always getting safe, dependable, nutritious food. If it doesn’t have the flocks’ final approval, it doesn’t leave the Hagen Industries plant!
