Birds are remarkable friends and when properly taken care of can live long healthy lives. Whether you're feeding parakeets and budgies or wild birds outside, we here at One Stop Country Pet Supply have the understanding and experience to guide you to the perfect food. All bird's dietary needs are different, and what works best for some won't offer adequate nutrition for others. Therefore, we proudly offer the NH area to ensure the absolute best food for your feathered buddies, enhancing their health and extending their lives.
Wild bird vs pet bird food- Wild bird food, depending on where you live, is usually a mixture 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 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 meets their calorie requirements, 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 typically a blend of similar seeds, with extra nutritionally thick pellets included. 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 like larger seed types.
Food for pets will have prebiotic fiber and probiotic ingredients included, as well as a selection of various other all-natural seeds and fruits. These bolster the immune and digestive function of your birds, and more very closely resemble their all-natural diet, which would not generally include a few types of seeds.
Making sure ample nutrition- Birds need prebiotics and probiotics to maintain their digestive functions functioning smoothly. Omega-3 fatty acids from nuts and seeds offer fat for their brains and nerves, and improve the gloss and shine of their plumes, while the different vitamins and micronutrients maintain them healthy overall.
In addition, as your bird ages, you will wish to speak with an expert on what type of food you should be feeding them. Chicks and younger birds have different nutritional needs than older birds, and altering their food needs care and needs to be done progressively, 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 every day to make sure proper adherence to the new diet regimen.
