The new Murphy’s pellets are the perfect replacement for Roudybush pellets and are made with similar ingredients and pellet size. Murphy’s pellets have been manufactured in Australia, by an Australian owned family business, not imported. A high quality, fresh smelling pellet that is sure to be a favourite for many birds! Murphy’s pellets are available in Crumbles, Mini and Small sizes. Crumbles is the smallest size pellet in the Murphy’s range, which is recommended for nearly all pet parrots. Using a smaller pellet, you will find there is less wastage.

Access to fresh water should always be allowed and a diet of fresh vegetables and some fruit should also be provided to your bird. When changing your bird from either seed or a different pellet onto Murphy’s, it is recommended to convert them using a method approved by an avian vet.

Customer reviews and a more detailed description are available below plus find ingredients and nutritional information in the photos.

“Murphy’s Avian Maintenance Diet is a complete balanced diet for birds all year round. Pellets are a balanced diet which can represent up to 80% of a birds total diet, so do not provide additional Vitamin or Minerals. Ensure pellets are available as the primary source of food. Feeding fresh fruit and vegetables is also recommended.
Always monitor your birds weight & health condition, especially when transitioning to pellet foods.” – From the Murphy’s label.

Roudybush pellets are no longer available in Australia. Murphy’s pellets are made with similar ingredients and pellet size, so they will look, smell and taste very similar. Some images show the previous Roudybush pellet, for comparison reasons. These are labelled accordingly.

Though not stated on the packet, I have had confirmation that the salt content of this diet is a low 0.33% (compared to 0.5% for Vetafarm Nutriblend). Other nutritional information is provided in the photos.

Murphy’s pellets are made in Crumbles, Mini and Small sizes. A medium size pellet may be made in the future.

Crumbles is the smallest size pellet available in the maintenance diet range and is recommended for nearly all pet parrots. Using a smaller pellet, you will find there is less wastage (than larger pellets) and when used in a foraging scenario, it takes the bird longer to retrieve their meal. I feed both crumbles and mini to my own birds (Conures, Quakers, a Galah and Corella), with occasional use of the ‘small’ as a handfed treat. The ‘small’ is the largest size pellet in the range currently.

While introducing a new pellet, closely monitor your birds’ weight and their droppings and chat to your avian vet if you’re concerned. This conversion method, recommended by Brisbane Bird Vet, has been successful for many birds.

    My lovebird refused to eat anything except Roudybush until I tried him on Murphy’s Crumbles (and I tried ALL the other brands sold in Australia).. He loves it and devoured his first meal without coming up for air! There was no waste with the Crumbles so I’ll probably stick to this size because he tends to like the smaller feeds. I’m so glad I don’t have to pay exorbitant prices and wait forever for Roudybush to arrive from the US. This is a fantastic Australian made product and reasonably priced. I’ll be ditching the Roudybush and sticking to the Murphy’s for sure!

    My Harry aka the four year old blue flash ultra flying budgie machine is a frequent and very active flyer EVERY day. When Roudybush Australia was discontinued I was beside myself trying to find something else that was good enough for such an active bird. Vetafarm proved disastrous for Harry as he needed much higher quality formulation and subsequently he got sick. So then we tried Zupreem and it was successful in getting him back to a healthy weight and condition but as it was starting to run out supplies of it from the USA were non existent around the country and luckily these Murphy Crumbles had come in, just in time. I’ve been weighing the blue flash every day with no loss of grammage whatsoever. His plumage is very healthy and strong and there have been NO issues with his poos. Feather regrowth from moulting is strong. Bright eyes and lots of energy. He’s energetic, healthy, happy and singing and talking his little head off on the Murphy’s Crumbles maintenance pellet. Most importantly this change of brand and formula to Murphy’s has come off without a hitch for a bird used to pellets and yes, there is far less waste in powder.. He just chews them all up. Highly recommend as it’s an Australian made product, fit for purpose and it’s incredible value for money. (Leaves more money to buy Harry the blue flash new toys and enrichment items.) From now on it’s Murphy’s forever….

    Very relieved to see my cockatiel transition from Roudybush to these crumbles, thanks for making this size pellet. He has refused all other brands, so I mix the crumble with a few of the smaller pellets and it works out well. Also glad to be buying local too.
