Wild bird vs pet bird food- Wild bird food, depending upon where you live, is usually a combination of different types of seeds, including thistle, sunflower, safflower, millet, and sorghum. Additionally, 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 many different species as possible, so while it meets their caloric needs, it's not dialed-in nutritionally like domestic bird food. Finally, millet - which is a typical 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 bigger seed types.
Food for pets will have prebiotic fiber and probiotic ingredients included, along with a range of other all-natural seeds and fruits. These boost the immune and digestive function of your birds, and more very closely mimic their all-natural diet, which would not normally consist of a few types of seeds.
Making certain adequate nutrition- Birds need prebiotics and probiotics to maintain their digestive functions functioning efficiently. Omega-3 fatty acids from nuts and seeds give fat for their brains and nerves, and improve the gloss and shine of their plumes, while the numerous vitamins and micronutrients maintain them healthy overall.
Additionally, as your bird ages, you will wish to seek advice from a professional on what type of food you should be feeding them. Chicks and younger birds have different dietary needs than older birds, and altering their food needs care and needs to be done gradually, as birds can have picky digestive systems. Slowly incorporate the new food into your bird's meal, replacing more of the old seed with the new food daily to ensure appropriate adherence to the new diet.
