BFF is loved by both jumbo and micro birdies alike. Its size is easily adjustable for preference and diversity.
BFF is also loved by DOGS! Whatever fruit or veggie you would feed fresh, you can feed BFF - a great, healthy SNACK. Initially they may turn away because the scent of the item isn't there UNTIL they taste it.

The largest variety of freeze-dried foods available for your feathered babies. EVERY one of our products is produced in our own private shop.
(NO additives or preservatives ever!)
Fully Nutritious Fresh Food Alternative FREEZE-DRIED PRODUCE. Big Chunk Food for our Big Butt Birds.
Everything we produce is fresh, hand washed and cut. NO frozen vegetables or fruits are ever used! ALL BFF products are processed in our private shop! We NEVER repackage from other sources.
This food is delivered in large chunks that can easily be cut or broken smaller as needed. Big Foot Foodie™ is suitable for all hook-bills from the smallest parakeet up to the largest macaw. Even your little canaries and finches will benefit and enjoy the very fine crumbs.
Freeze dried foods are the next best thing to fresh and way more convenient. The freeze-dried process locks in and holds its nutrition unlike the other preserving methods available.
Custom orders are welcome, time permitting! NEW PRODUCTS are frequently added!

We have found that, though freeze-dried product is expensive to produce, our prices are very competitive PLUS you are not wasting money throwing out unused fresh fruits and vegetables AND you are saving time!
The rising cost of all products is just insane lately! We are working very hard to keep costs down! When an increase is necessary, we are taking 1/2 of the hit - only increasing your cost by half of what it is costing us. ODDLY, some prices have actually come down!
It is natural to have some amount of crumbs or smaller pieces at the bottom of wherever you are storing our freeze-dried products. This is due to its brittle nature. It should not be wasted. Be sure to use any tiny crumbs that you may have. The nutrition is still there. You can sprinkle this on any of their other foods or feed to your little canaries and finches.
I highly recommend offering all foods you want your birds to eat as opposed to only what you know they like. Do not over fill your food dishes. Offering less will encourage that they eat better variety. We want to always be broadening their appetite horizons and you never know what day they will decide to do that – it can’t happen if the variety is not there.
In my experience while preparing this product I saw big differences in consumption at about 3 days then at a week and then at 2 weeks. I have found that some fresh veggies that are their least favorites – like broccoli – have suddenly become their top favorites! Interestingly based upon my own flock and trusted testers, Big Foot Foodie is being enjoyed more than fresh by the pickiest of eaters and has been instrumental in getting them to eat their fresh foods more!

My real, large parrot, passion began in 2000 and has gone through many changes over the years. I have been constantly changing my best-practices with each bird and each year that has passed. I have over 20 years' experience and have had quite a few different species in my home.
I have never really liked the assorted bird mixes that are available out there. I particularly disliked the old, non-fresh smell even before I was so intent on the topic of fresh and full natural nutrition.
This product was born out of necessity. There are a couple of other freeze-dried products out there, but they are all small flakes or pieces except the occasional fruit. My flock normally prefers something they can pick up with their hands and no one makes that.
My goal was to create something that can be used as part of a well-balanced, homemade, human grade parrot mix. I personally use this in their evening meals along with a few pellets and species appropriate nuts. Big Foot Foodie can be used wet or dry in place of or along with fresh produce. It is particularly handy if you are traveling with your pet, leaving them home with a babysitter or just want an easier way to feed the best nutrition.
Freeze dried produce is the most nutritious food preservation method that exists. It locks in 98% of the nutrients. None of the other options can even touch this number and, in fact, are significantly lower. My goal is to provide the highest level of nutrition possible to my flock at every meal.
P.S. Check out my birds, cage and aviary photos on myParrotopia. My story is still a work-in-progress but you will get the impact of my dedication and a sense of my 23+yrs. experience.
