    I fed my Vos Eclectus Harrisons pellets also. He LOVED them, and
    they seemed to provide everything else he needed. However I fed
    probably 50% fresh fruits and veggies, and 15-20% cooked/sprouted
    beans and other legumes, often in a pasta mix. I also used to make
    a sweetpotatoe "bread" with lots of veggies and grains cooked in
    and frozen into icecube trays as a quick thaw and feed before work.
