Wild bird vs pet bird food- Wild bird food, depending on where you live, is usually a blend of different types of seeds, including thistle, sunflower, safflower, millet, and sorghum. Additionally, many wild bird feeds include peanuts and corn, which are chosen 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 fulfills their calorie requirements, 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 normally a blend of similar seeds, with added 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 prefer larger seed types.
Food for pets will have prebiotic fiber and probiotic ingredients included, in addition to a selection of other natural seeds and fruits. These reinforce the immune and digestive function of your birds, and more carefully simulate their natural diet plan, which wouldn't usually consist of a few types of seeds.
Making sure appropriate nutrition- Birds need prebiotics and probiotics to keep their digestive functions functioning efficiently. Omega-3 fatty acids from nuts and seeds provide fat for their brains and nerves, and boost the luster and sparkle of their plumes, while the different vitamins and micronutrients keep them healthy overall.
In addition, as your bird ages, you will want to speak with a professional on what type of food you should be feeding them. Chicks and younger birds have different nutritional requirements than older birds, and altering their food requires care and needs to be done gradually, as birds can have finicky digestive systems. Gradually incorporate the new food into your bird's dish, replacing more of the old seed with the new food daily to make sure proper adherence to the new diet plan.
