All bird's nutritional needs are different, and what works best for some won't provide adequate nutrition for others. To that end, we proudly serve the CO area to guarantee the absolute best food for your feathered friends, enhancing their health and extending their lives.
Wild bird vs pet bird food- Wild bird food, depending on where you live, is usually a blend of different types of seeds, consisting of thistle, sunflower, safflower, millet, and sorghum. In addition, several wild bird feeds include peanuts and corn, which are preferred by specific species like cardinals and blue jays. Wild bird food is diverse in order to attract as several species as possible, so while it meets their calorie requirements, it's not dialed-in nutritionally like domestic bird food. Finally, millet - which is an usual ingredient in both wild and domestic bird seed blends.
Domestic bird food is typically a blend of similar seeds, with added nutritionally dense pellets included. Conures, doves, and pigeons love millet, as do budgies and parakeets. They also enjoy safflower and sunflower seeds when they're hulled, though parrots and hookbills will choose larger seed types.
Food for pets will have prebiotic fiber and probiotic ingredients consisted of, in addition to a range of various other natural seeds and fruits. These bolster the immune and digestive function of your birds, and more carefully imitate their all-natural diet, which would not normally contain a few types of seeds.
Making certain appropriate nutrition- Birds need prebiotics and probiotics to keep their digestive functions working smoothly. Omega-3 fatty acids from nuts and seeds give fat for their brains and nerves, and enhance the gloss and sparkle of their plumes, while the various vitamins and micronutrients maintain them healthy overall.
Furthermore, as your bird ages, you will wish to consult a professional on what type of food you must be feeding them. Chicks and younger birds have different dietary needs than older birds, and altering their food calls for care and needs to be done gradually, as birds can have finicky digestive systems. Gradually incorporate the new food into your bird's meal, replacing more of the old seed with the new food each day to make certain appropriate adherence to the new diet plan.
