Zeigler Bird of Paradise is a scientifically-formulated, supplemental diet for softbill species such as Birds-of-Paradise, Starlings, Tanagers, Mynahs, and Toucans. Developed and tested by zoo nutritionists and veterinarians, Zeigler Bird of Paradise was designed to support a balanced diet consisting of non-citrus fruit, fresh vegetables, and dark green leafy produce.

Iron storage disease (hemochromatosis) is a common ailment among many species of softbills. Data suggests that feeding a well balanced diet low in iron, like Zeigler Bird of Paradise, is beneficial to species prone to hemochromatosis.
