Birds are impressive friends and when properly looked after can live long healthy lives. Whether you're feeding parakeets and budgies or wild birds outside, we here at Rivertown Feed & Pet Country Store have the understanding and experience to guide you to the best food. All bird's dietary requirements are different, and what works best for some won't give appropriate nutrition for others. Therefore, we proudly offer the CA area to ensure the best food for your feathered buddies, improving their health and wellness and extending their lives.
Wild bird vs pet bird food- Wild bird food, depending upon where you live, is usually a mixture of different types of seeds, including thistle, sunflower, safflower, millet, and sorghum. In addition, numerous wild bird feeds include peanuts and corn, which are chosen by certain species like cardinals and blue jays. Wild bird food varies in order to attract as many different species as possible, so while it fulfills 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 added nutritionally dense 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 prefer larger seed types.
Food for pets will have prebiotic fiber and probiotic ingredients included, as well as a range of other all-natural seeds and fruits. These bolster the immune and digestive function of your birds, and more carefully imitate their all-natural diet regimen, which would not usually contain a few types of seeds.
Making sure appropriate nutrition- Birds need prebiotics and probiotics to keep their digestive functions functioning smoothly. Omega-3 fatty acids from nuts and seeds give fat for their brains and nerves, and improve the luster and sparkle of their feathers, while the different vitamins and micronutrients maintain them healthy overall.
Furthermore, as your bird ages, you will want to seek advice from a specialist on what type of food you should be feeding them. Chicks and younger birds have different dietary requirements than older birds, and changing their food needs care and requires to be done gradually, as birds can have picky digestive systems. Gradually incorporate the new food into your bird's meal, replacing more of the old seed with the new food each day to make sure proper adherence to the new diet plan.
