Whether you're feeding parakeets and budgies or wild birds outside, we here at Pet's General Store have the understanding and experience to guide you to the perfect food.

Wild bird vs pet bird food- Wild bird food, depending on where you live, is usually a combination of different types of seeds, consisting of thistle, sunflower, safflower, millet, and sorghum. Additionally, lots of wild bird feeds consist of peanuts and corn, which are liked 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 satisfies 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 typically a mix of similar seeds, with added nutritionally thick 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 prefer bigger seed types.
Food for pets will have prebiotic fiber and probiotic ingredients included, along with a range of various other natural seeds and fruits. These reinforce the immune and digestive function of your birds, and more carefully mimic their all-natural diet regimen, which wouldn't usually contain a few types of seeds.
Making sure sufficient nutrition- Birds need prebiotics and probiotics to keep their digestive functions functioning smoothly. Omega-3 fatty acids from nuts and seeds offer fat for their brains and nerves, and improve the luster and sparkle of their plumes, while the various vitamins and micronutrients maintain them healthy overall.
In addition, as your bird ages, you will wish to consult an expert on what type of food you must be feeding them. Chicks and younger birds have different nutritional requirements than older birds, and changing their food calls for 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 daily to make sure correct adherence to the new diet.
