Wild bird vs pet bird food- Wild bird food, depending on where you live, is usually a mixture of different sorts of seeds, including thistle, sunflower, safflower, millet, and sorghum. Additionally, many wild bird feeds consist of peanuts and corn, which are preferred by specific species like cardinals and blue jays. Wild bird food varies in order to attract as several 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 usually a mix of similar seeds, with additional nutritionally thick 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 like bigger seed types.
Food for pets will have prebiotic fiber and probiotic ingredients consisted of, along with a selection of various other natural seeds and fruits. These boost the immune and digestive function of your birds, and more carefully simulate their natural diet, which would not normally contain a few types of seeds.

Chicks and younger birds have different nutritional needs than older birds, and changing their food calls for care and requires to be done progressively, as birds can have picky digestive systems.
