Wild bird vs pet bird food- Wild bird food, depending upon where you live, is usually a combination of different sorts of seeds, consisting of thistle, sunflower, safflower, millet, and sorghum. Furthermore, lots of wild bird feeds include peanuts and corn, which are chosen by certain species like cardinals and blue jays.

Finally, millet - which is a common ingredient in both wild and domestic bird seed blends.
Domestic bird food is typically a mix of similar seeds, with extra 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.

Chicks and younger birds have different nutritional requirements than older birds, and altering their food needs care and requires to be done progressively, as birds can have finicky digestive systems.
