Healthy Bird's Twin Peaks Organic Herb Salad (TM)
- Herb Salad's 22 medicinal herbs address common health issues safely and without the dangers that improper medicating and over supplementing can produce. Enabling your bird's ability to self-medicate can be a life-saver. In the wild, birds self-medicate by consuming herbs that address certain health issues. This Herb Salad gives them back the freedom and ability to do the same in captivity. This herb salad is completely safe and birds cannot over-medicate. It simply enables birds to choose what it is they require and in what amount.
- Birds instinctively know medicinal plants are a necessary part of their natural diet. Your bird's initial reaction to Herb Salad can vary, depending on the individual bird and the circumstances. Most birds immediately try Herb Salad and begin consuming it on a regular basis. In some cases, your bird may ignore it until a health matter, e.g. vitamin deficiency, stress, injury, illness, etc. compels him to seek relief.
- Herb Salad is not only for sick birds. It's also beneficial in maintaining the health of the fit bird, in a safe and natural way.
- Herb Salad's 100% Organic ingredients are the leaves, roots, bark and flowers of the plants that animals in the wild seek as a means to obtain required nutrients, minerals, vitamins and healing capabilities.
- It is best to feed Herb Salad in a shallow dish that allow easy access to the entire supply, rather than just surface contents

Q: Can I add your herbs to my bird's seed?
A: This may be a good way to introduce Herb Salad™ to your bird's diet, but over time I'd be concerned about waste.
Q: What kind of birds will eat your herbs?
A: Everybody, from the tiniest finches to the largest parrots! Dove, quail, pigeon, poultry-grazing animals eat Herb Salad™. The Herb Salad is also very good for other small pets (guinea pigs, rabbits, hamsters, etc.)
Q: Will I have to grind up your herbs for my smaller birds?
A: No. This would make it very difficult for your bird to pick out certain herbs. Also, birds generally don't prefer powdered mixes.
Q: How long the herbs will stay fresh and how to store them.
A: Keep opened Herb Salad™ sealed and dry to retain optimum potency and freshness for 1 year. Unopened, it has a shelf life of up to 2 years. While refrigeration is not necessary, storing at a low temperature or freezing unused portions may extend the expiration threshold.
Q: Will birds easily accept the Herb Salad?
A: Young parrots seem to take instantly it; others need to *learn* what it is. Initially, it may help to mix the Herb Salad in with their general dry food (seed mix), but after a while use a separate dish to minimize waste.
Q: How should I feed it?
A: Provide a shallow cup o that your pet has easy access to all the herbs; yet the dish should be large enough to accommodate a well-mixed blend. Try to locate it in an area of the cage away from his food and water sources so that it stays clean.
Q: My bird loves your herbs--though he's very selective.
A: Herb Salad™ is working as it should with a selective bird; he's selecting the herb(s) he needs to address a particular need, e.g. deficiency, ailment, emotional. We recommend you add to his daily supply, mixing it in with the existing, so that he keeps getting what it is that he's seeking.
Q: It looks like my birds are *playing* with some of the herbs?!
A: They're extracting nutrients by *mouthing* or *playing* with certain herbs, especially the larger pieces.
Q: Can my birds eat too much herbs and get sick?
A: No, your bird knows best what it needs and how much. It will pick out what it needs and ignore what it doesn’t. It cannot “overdose” – the Herb Salad is very safe.
Q: Are the herbs in your Herb Salad™ mixed in equal parts?
A: No, quantities are varied according to diet requirements. The selection and proportions of herbs contained in our blend has been carefully chosen based on extensive research and many years of use.
Q: When and how much should I give my birds?
A: Herb Salad™ should be available to your birds at all times. It is best served in its own shallow dish so that your birds may *pick* around in it.
Q: What differences in my birds will I notice after feeding them Herb Salad?
A: More active birds, better feather condition and color, better appetite, and increased breeding productivity are just some of the improvements from feeding Herb Salad™. After we began feeding medicinal herbs to our birds, we had a dramatic reduction in deaths, illnesses, *mystery* fluffed birds, nervousness and feather/skin problems. The positive aspect has been that our birds are able to correct minor health issues before they get severe and we are able to notice a difference in their behavior.
Q: My birds need to *fatten up*! Will this help?
A: There are herbs in our mix that stimulate appetite. And, it stands to reason that a bird that feels well will eat better!
Q: I'm confused... Should I treat my sick birds with your herbs instead of medicines?
A: No. Always seek veterinary care for sick bird. Usually, by the time you notice your bird's not feeling well, it's quite ill. The Herb Salad™ allows your bird to combat illnesses before the apparent signs that alert the bird keeper. It will not cure disease, but it can aid in recovery and help to repair any deficiencies or damage done by the illness or the medications.
