birdfoodI’ve owned parrots, macaws and cockatoos for many years now, and over that time a few of my friends have also begun keeping birds as pets. As the go-to authority on avian pet knowledge, they are always asking me questions about feeding and caring for birds. I’d like to share with you a few of the most common issues that are brought to my attention. First there’s the question of seed and pellet nutrition.

Unfortunately, people often frame the question in the wrong way. They’ll talk about “seeds versus pellets,” or some similar construction. The fact is that both are viable sources of parrot nutrition, and birds can always benefit from variety. Pellets are some of the most nutritional bird food you’ll find. They are made from a blend of nutrients, so each and every bite will be wholesome and beneficial.
