    Hi Lauren,

    I too feed my birds mazuri. But I mixed them with Feast
    Insectivorous from the BirdCare Company and Orlux....Insect
    Patee....and of course live term of variety. Over
    the years I found this combination work really well for me.
    I know that feeding just mazuri and some life food will be
    fine for your softbill birds. But like all thing....I
    believed in the wild.....birds have a variety to pick and
    choose. So my mixture of all three plus live food.....I
    think tend to be the best for my birds. When given this
    mixture. I notice they are more lively.....sing more...have
    an exceptional plumage.
