The second reason is the artificial colouring. Bird owners need to be very in the know of reading stool as an indicator of health, from texture and composition up to colour. When birds are on a diet with added dyes, this skews what we can see about their health because often times the dyes end up in their stool. In some cases, owners will assume coloured stool is a result of the food, when in fact the bird could be quite ill.
With all of that said, this is still a balanced pellet which is better than no pellet at all. It's very readily available and affordable, and can be a good transitional food, potentially to a better pellet. If it's all you can get it's not a bad option. I would opt for the uncoloured Naturals before the Fruit Blend, but I would also opt for a brand like Harrison's, Roudybush, Lafeber, or Vetafarm before Zupreem.
