Wild bird vs pet bird food- Wild bird food, depending upon where you live, is usually a mixture of different sorts of seeds, consisting of thistle, sunflower, safflower, millet, and sorghum. In addition, several 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 satisfies their caloric needs, it's not dialed-in nutritionally like domestic bird food. Finally, millet - which is a common ingredient in both wild and domestic bird seed blends.
Domestic bird food is generally a blend of similar seeds, with additional 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.

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