Wild bird vs pet bird food- Wild bird food, depending upon where you live, is usually a mix of different types of seeds, consisting of thistle, sunflower, safflower, millet, and sorghum. In addition, several wild bird feeds consist of peanuts and corn, which are preferred by certain species like cardinals and blue jays. Wild bird food varies in order to attract as many different species as possible, so while it meets their calorie needs, 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 generally a mix of similar seeds, with additional nutritionally dense pellets added in. Conures, doves, and pigeons enjoy 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.

Chicks and younger birds have different nutritional needs than older birds, and altering their food requires care and requires to be done slowly, 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 proper adherence to the new diet plan.
