I always wanted to have a bird and I have been very happy with the one that I got. I grew up with some friends who had birds and it was always fun to hear them chirp and do their beautiful songs and even let them out of their cage and play with them. Having a bird is very fulfilling and I love having a bird of my own as a pet.

Making sure that I am taking the very best care of my bird has been my priority. I want to ensure that my bird is getting some nutritious bird food and that she feels comfortable and happy in her cage. There are some great bird supplies out there and I love to look for them online so that I can save myself a lot of time and hassle.

Finding some healthy bird food has worked out well to ensure that my bird can stay fueled up and healthy. I love the natural food and that it lets my bird get all of the nutrition that she needs. The bird food has been a favorite for my bird and she has been very happy with it. I have been stocking up on plenty of this bird food.

I always like to make sure that I can do what I can to make sure that I am able to provide my bird with top quality food that he can eat on a regular basis. It can be difficult for me to make sure that my bird is given good quality food since I don’t have the money to spend on food all of the time. Still, getting food that is right for my bird is something that takes precedence for me.

Most of what my bird eats is some normal seed that is very good for him on the whole. I only buy organic bird seed because I want to make sure that I am able to keep my bird as healthy as possible. Of course, picking out other items for him to eat like fruits and vegetables is also really important. For this reason, I have spent a lot of time looking for organic fruits my bird likes.

By providing my bird with a diet that is diverse, I am able to make sure that he can stay a lot healthier. I love to be able to find some different kinds of items that I can use whenever I feed my bird. Getting him just the right kinds of foods is something that is absolutely essential to me.

The Great Pellets vs. Seeds Debate

seed_150If you’re looking into purchasing a parrot, you might look to an experienced friend for some advice. Be aware, however, that there’s plenty of misinformation out there regarding a parrot’s dietary needs. Some people swear by a diet of seeds alone because, they say, that’s what the birds would eat in the wild. Unfortunately, that viewpoint fails to consider a parrot’s natural desire and physiological need for variety.

A well-balanced diet will mix and match parrot seed with pellets, fruit and maybe even a cracker or two. Establishing a diverse meal plan will actually help to prolong a parrot’s life while also improving plumage color and feather condition. A healthy parrot is a friendly and active one, so be sure to vary the diet immediately if you bird seems sullen or withdrawn.

Farm vs. Non-Farm Bird Food

A wide variety of commercial bird food is available to bird owners. However, bags of mixed birdseed often combine attractive bird food like sunflower seeds with “filler” materials that birds enjoy less. Birds tend to pick out their favorite bird seed and simply leave the rest uneaten. Other birds that favor some of the seeds that were not eaten will then come and eat those seeds.
Farmed birds fed commercial bird food typically are given very specific scientifically designed pre-blended feed. Examples of commercial bird food for chickens includes: chick starter medicated crumbles, chick grower crumbles, egg layer mash, egg layer pellet, egg layer crumbles, egg producer pellet, and broiler maker med crumbles. Tiny chicks can’t handle pellets. Crumbles are often made by taking the pellets and running them through rollers. Mash is more finely ground.
